You sound just like my Aussie boyfriend, who said exactly the same thing about AFL. ;-) The only thing is, he used to say that there was nothing to see in Melbourne! Unlike the character in my story, I really did learn to appreciate AFL. It was cricket by Ozzie amour never managed to sell me on. Fred Shirley is doing his level best to change that. He’s quite passionate about it.
