Recently, I took some pictures of Terrell Owens when he was here in Melbourne for a charity touch football game.

Touch football with a bunch of girls?

Hmmm . . . . . . . . that is something I could get into!

Gee, I went to bed after reading sport stuff and this morning? ...back to funny food!
Back to sport: In Oz we used to complain about the starting time of a game being dictated by the TV stations, but at least the advertising is generally restricted to genuine breaks in play (in football - ie Aussie Rules - when a goal is scored there will be an ad while the ball is returned to the centre circle: in cricket, when there is a wicket taken or a drinks break or a streaker disrupts play.) We actually see the whole game! 100 minutes of football and 1800 minutes (!!!) of cricket.
I can see a research project possibility for some PhD candidate on while Americans would watch 3 hours of TV to see only 12 minutes of play.

I am getting a bit fatigued by this persistent and negative rhetoric about my American neighbours and their leisure activities. After all, Americans have given us ... uhhh....mmmmm ... Weeeell .. Um ... Americans. We should be thankful.

We have shown Canucks how to play hockey, so there's that.

Snapshots from MATS today. Even got a pic of a coworker with some guys who drive on ice. He was pretty happy. https://www.facebook.com/scottywbishop/posts/10206540109201149

Touché.
I was speaking of the Stanley Cup drought for Canada.
Shows how much of a hockey fan I am, we have the Blues here so go figure.

Then how about Velveeta Cheese!!

As to consuming Velveta, I do respect the fact that you trust me enough to admit it you eat it.

Well, you know the saying, "Admitting to the problem is the first step to recovery".

Apparently my being self effacing about the Blues was lost in translation.
And yes, I eat Velveeta on special occasions, such as Super Bowl weekend.
I would also love to try your delicacy called poutine, if it was made from Velveeta curds.

Trivia fact: The first international cricket game was played in New York City when a team from Canada played a team from the US.

So would I, (assuming Velveeta is NOT involved) but I'm not being sarcastic.
