I went to my first ever Aussie Rules (or AFL) match on Sunday. I had almost no clue what was going on but I will share what little I did manage to pick up:
1. The pitch is round. That took me a good 10 minutes.
2. The Sydney Swans are, in fact, nothing to do with the Sydney Rabbities. Who, as it turns out, are actually the South Sydney Rabbitohs. And who play a totally different game in a completely separate league. Ah. Just testing.
3. If you’re a Port Adelaide supporter (either because your friend is from there and you want to give her moral support at this away game, or because you really hate red and couldn’t possibly wear it) then you will not get your head kicked in, even if you sit and cheer in the middle of a stand full of Sydney Swans supporters.
4. AFL players are gorgeous. I want one.
