Six Alert: Aussie Rules Begins!
Six Things offers up a smorgasbord of delectable manflesh from the Australian Football League, which begins its 2006 season tonight. If you're not familiar with Aussie Rules, you've missed out on the greatest sport in the history of civilization. Combining the best parts of rugby, soccer, and soft-core porn, it's a constantly-moving game that rarely fails to leave you on the edge of your seat. It's also famous for its homoerotic contact...which straight Australians seem oblivious to, much to our benefit.
After years on the Fox Sports World channel, the sport can now only be seen in the U.S. on satellite television...or on your computer, by subscribing to the international viewer pass at the AFL website. If you need some inspiration to join the party, we offer up these three morsels: Paul Licuria. Lance Franklin. And the rookie Shannon Hurn. Yum.
