My husband and children would KILL me if I didn't at least try this...



This is Australian Rules football. I'm not a huge fan myself (I only have room for one kind of football to love, and picked an AFL team based mostly on the colours being like the team I already followed ) but the rest of the family are utter tragics. If you watch the video, you may see why.

The video mentions the "Grand Final", as a kind of equivalent to your Superbowl. The Grand Final is this weekend - Saturday afternoon.




One of the teams in it (Collingwood, AKA the Magpies, who my husband may or may not love more than he loves me) has got themselves an American recruit, by way of Oklahoma State basketball...



Meet Mason Cox. He's now my son's favourite player. All Child One wants in the entire world is a Collingwood jumper with 46 on the back. He's not getting one, since his favourite player changes a LOT, but he wants one desperately.

If you were looking for something different to watch and get excited about, you could do much worse than the American Pie.
