Aussie Rules Football is on Fox Sports 2...first time I've seen it on US TV in maybe 30 years.

Just happened to turn on the TV and low and behold, Aussie rules football, Collingwood vs North Melbourne.
We watched a few minutes and the boys were hooked.
Gavin's comment: "That's the best sport ever!"

I caught a little on a recent visit to Sydney...but I definitely remember seeing it on ESPN back when they first started because I think they couldn't get any of the other sports broadcast rights...it was pretty fun to watch.

At first glance, it looks like it might be rugby...but much wilder and wide open. Played on a huge (150m) oval...and players wearing outfits that look more like NBA uniforms from the 70's than anything else.

Here's a taste from youtube...

Interesting article about some of the players from the bay area who played in the APSL for the San Francisco Bay Blackhawks during the gap between NASL and MLS, and later made big impacts in MLS.

Yeah, I'm torn.  It's great for him, but the thought that so many congressional districts won't be better known is sad.  I wonder how Craig Ferguson and Jon Stewart are feeling about it.

Very friendly and helpful service and great food at reasonable prices. Our boys loved it although they were very wary of food they don't recognize. it was pretty busy because of the Sharks' crowd. Sitting on the outdoor patio was nice.

My boys love New England clam chowder and Chowder house did not disappoint them. I had the shrimp po-boy which was very good as well (growing up near New Orleans, it's rare to find a good po-boy anywhere else, but this one was pretty close to it). Our server was very good and service was relatively quick.

Very good food (no complaints about any of it) and great service. Decor is nicer than I imagined from the other reviews. All in all a great dining experience for our family and friends.

Very quick and convenient...pull into the drive through...load up a bin and it get's loaded and shredded in a couple of minutes. Very reasonable price (currently $7 a box)...I had a box and a large bag and they charged me $11.
