Aussie Aussie Aussie...

Arena Football might be suspended but there is still the Super Bowl. If I remember, I'll get up early on Monday morning our time to watch it. I've never actually watched a full game of American football in my life, but former Geelong Cats star Ben Graham is going to be the first Aussie in the Super Bowl. Even though he's just a punter, it's my patriotic duty to barrack for Arizona. (I guess the American equivalent of "barrack" in the previous sentence would be "root", but in Australia, to "root" means to have sex. Free language lesson for you. Gotta love regional slang.) Plus Bruce Springsteen is playing at half time, even if it's only for 12 minutes.
