*People say it's like a combination of rugby and soccer
*Nobody says Australian Rules Football. Call it Footy.

footy, everybody else loves rugby.
*Adelaide has two teams. Perth (in Western Aus) has two teams. Sydney has one team. Queensland (northeast Aus) has
one. Melbourne has ten. I bet you can guess the footy capital of Australia?

Alastair and I are either going to somebody's house to watch the game, or we'll watch it at a pub with friends. Should be FUN!!! GO SAINTS!
I should also mention that St. Kilda is a gorgeous suburb of Melbourne. Al and I had a blast walking around the beach and shopping while we were there. Ok...actually only one of us had a blast shopping .
Expect some good words on St. Kilda when I post my Melbourne recap.
If I don't get the chance to post tomorrow, happy Friday to everybody!
Also, if you want to see what footy is all about, you can watch the game on Friday night! When Al and I were in Chicago together, we watched it at Timothy O'Toole's. Do a search for pubs that are playing the Grand Final. You'll find some. You'll like it- it's a very easy sport to get into!
