I forgot about about cricket. It is just this overarching thing that entangles you in summer. I suppose it should be put in the top two or three sports,however,I consider it to be more of a culture and will omit it from my list. Ok the World Cup one dayers should be at number three.

He'll, I'm biased towards Australia as well as hockey yet I still rank it the 14th most interesting and exciting sport in the country. I've got a mate from Goulburne and apparently they are the greatest "hockey town" in Australia. Produced more internationals "per capita" than any other town or city.

What I meant was, if they don't come to me, they will come to me after I bribe them.

Not a big fan of the games, but happened to be flicking through the channels and watched the end of the men's marathon. How good was it! This huge Aussie chugging along and beat about 8 Kenyans. I was sure he was going to get run down in the latter stages but to his credit held on. I'm getting up at 5am tomorrow, putting on my sweatband and stubbies and running to work in a tribute to this victory.
