What do you get when you have two teams of 22 players each (there’s only 18 from each team on the oval-shaped field at any time), speckies, and handballing? Well footy of course! That’s Australian Rules Football as we Americans might know it.
Now that March Madness and the international cricket title are decided and with the baseball season just getting started, perhaps it’s time to widen your repertoire to include the sport from down under.
Colorado Public Television features “Australian Rules Football” on channel 12.3 (Comcast Xfinity channel 252; DirecTV HD channel 12-2) the next three Mondays (April 11, 18 & 25) at 7 p.m.
Pass the Fosters and tune in, then share your favorite plays with us.
