So who else shed a tear when they came out?

I know I did. What an emotional moment. And what legends to tag out before confronting the throng! Those blokes deserve every bit of cheque book journalism that comes their way. I hope they shout drinks at the pub and also that the bloke who died (good roll up with the bikes too, wasn't it) isn't forgotten in all the hullabaloo.

Did anyone else get a bit teary watching it all unfold?

No, I didn't. Good for them and their families that they're ok, but sucks for their mate who died. But now that they're ok, any chance that the bloody media can STFU? I'm kinda sick of it.

I don't mean to sound like a heartless bastard here but this is WAY overrated, people are blabbing on about how unfortunate they are like they have literally gone through hell and back. There are people FAR worse off than those miners and get jack shit

Mrs shed lots of tears. I'm in wonder at the rescue and their ordeal. Saw Eddie McGuire in the pub tonight, they're doing both Footy Shows from there this Thursday.
