LONDON, ENGLAND – This last week was fairly boring – I had nothing to do up till the weekend.  So, I ended up watching some different sports – primarily cricket – for about an hour and then thought: ‘Wow! This is soooo interesting! I’m going to watch this for five days and have nothing to do…’ (There is NO sarcasm in that statement).  Anyways flipping through I watched a little bit of Rugby League, but then I found the true use for a cricket field… Aussie Rules Football.

Watching Aussie Rules was a wonderful experience.  They hit each other, it’s high-scoring and they kick the ball a lot.  I was a fullback when I played.  I mean, it’s a fast-moving sport where the referee does nothing – I think – except for funnily throw the ball in to restart play.

Personally I loved it here’s a great video on what Aussie Rules is:

So after rugby what’s your sport of choice?

P.s… I’d get flogged by the powers that be if I didn’t show you this; Aussie Rules as experienced founders/partners at
