Aussie Football Rules!!!

Saturday night my FIANCE and I got to attend an Australian Football Game. :)

We caught the bus to The Gabba - which is home to the Brisbane Lions. And when we got there we were greeted with mass amounts of people. It was great!!!

We got into the stadium and found our seats, which were great. To be honest, I don't think there's a bad seat in the place. Although we were seated in the unofficial visitor's section, with a few of the home crowd interspersed.

It took us a while to figure out really what was going on in the game below, but I think we understood the key points and were able to follow it well enough. It was a lot of fun.

What was really cool was that following the game they had a special event (or at least I think it was special - don't know if they do it every time after a game - if so, that'd be cool), they let everyone onto the field. So not only did Bryan and I get to see the game, but we were able to walk on an AFL field. Bryan even got to throw a ball around.

It was a lot of fun. :)
