Aussie Rules

Over dinner tonight we watched the first half of the Hawthorn-Carlton game from last Saturday. This is Australian Rules football I’m talking about: taped on Setanta2 on cable.

I don’t understand how anyone can bear to watch anything else after having seen a game of Aussie Rules. Nothing compares to it; certainly not soccer or rugby. The game is faster, tougher and more skillful than any other game of football. And this match exemplifies it all. The pace is unbelievable; I’m exhausted just watching it.

And even the slowest of matches (like last week’s Adelaide-Melbourne game where Melbourne had only scored three points by the end of the first half) is still faster and more exciting than any other type of football. Rock on Aussies.
