Re: Random Thoughts
Yeah, American Football is an acquired taste. I'm a yank but live in Oz. I love the game personally and played it in high school. Great fun. There are lots of rules and the strategy side of the game is huge...kinda like chess really.
I've had so many Aussies come up to me and say what poofs the grid iron players are for wearing all those pads, but that comes from ignorance of the game. Those linemen are mostly 190cm+ tall and weigh upwards of 140 kilos. And they are quick, amazingly so. Maybe not fast, but their foot speed is incredible. You get hit by a man that size you know it!
It's better to sit in silence and be thought a fool, than open ones mouth and remove all doubt..
