Power Up For Down Under Football (UP-dated)



OK, so ... today was gorgeous in Denver, and I had the chance to see and learn about a sport that I'd never known about before:  Australian Football.  Seriously, Australian ... Football ... right, anyway ... family friend mentioned that KC would be in town and we did email and so I promised I'd go watch (as her other half is like the coach) and so ...

... I went, I watched, I learned ... basically it's a cross between Soccer and Rugby, about as physical as Soccer, though you can use your hands to catch and "hit" the ball to a teammate. The ball, however, is shaped like a football ... points are scored by kicking the ball thru the uprights, of which there are four. Two tall uprights, centered, and a smaller upright to either side. A kick thru the center is 6 pts, a kick thru either side is 1 pt. For those interested, check out The Kansas City Power Website ... I think games are free to attend. Something new if anyone's interested, and hey, it's better than Soccer ... it's FOOTBALL! Kc-power-v-mn-freeze-2010-ruck-1023x730_medium

ESPN3 online shows anywhere from 1 to 3 AFL games each weekend. The AFL is the pro league in Australia. What's great about this is that although the live games are shown here at ungodly hours, they are available to watch for about a week after anytime you want. Go to http://espn.go.com/espn3/ and choose "football" from the drop-down menu to see what's available
