For the second night in a row I have enjoyed watching Aussie Footy.
They just started up this weekend.
Weird to see 36 players and 9 umpires not practicing distancing and yet two game media types standing on the field talking at half time, 6 feet apart.
Last night I had the pleasure of watching Melbourne win.
Although I am a many gen Canadian, I happened to be born near Melbourne and spent most of my first 4 years there. I wonder if I had never left, would I have played this game.
I ran fast enough, which was faster than most
I was good at catching
I was great at kicking, specially directional.
Also great at kicking on the run.
I had good instincts for sport IQ of most games I played.
Before I got fat, I spent my core years a 5'8" 135lbs to 145lbs toothpick.
I would have had a tough time jumping for the ball.
I doubt I would have been tough enough.
Man, what they get away with. Holding, tripping, punching, extreme roughing.
Each time I turned the game on just to check it out, I couldnt turn it off.
