Australiano Fรบtbol Explicado

An Educational Video

A typical Australian family ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ

… where the oldest son is dedicated to
the God of Football as a love offering.
A human sacrifice? … I hear you ask.
That all depends on how well he plays.
Boys will be boys with their leather balls
but many an Aussie daughter aspires
to become a High Flying Priestess in
the glorious Women’s Football League.

  1. Oh Fรบtbol. The Spaniards were crazy about it when we lived in Spain. My nephew is a pro Fรบtboller in Seattle, WA, USA. He is going to Spain to teach and hoping to get on a Spanish team.

    1. El Hermoso Juego โšฝ
      Yes, but if only they allowed
      the players to use their hands ๐Ÿ–๏ธ๐Ÿคš
      as they do in Australian Rules
      football. Maradona tried to show
      the way in the 1986 World Cup,
      but …

      1. That would be handy. That was a nice “hand of God goal”. Spaniards are all feet. When my daughter tried to teach some kids to play basketball, they ended kicking the ball more than dribbling it and deformed our basketball in the process.

      2. Sounds just like a wine festival
        Linda and I attended in Malaga.
        The flamenco dancing was all
        footwork, with much trampled
        underfoot, but not one drop of
        wine was spilt๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ˜Ž

      3. You’ve answered the question,
        those festivals where everyone
        dresses up in white. No hiding
        the fact if you sacrilegiously
        spill a drop. Perhaps also why
        the Russians prefer Vodka. No
        tell tale evidence of your crime
        (unlike the Ukraine or Crimea).


  2. You’re preaching to the choir here David!! We are all crazy for fรบtbol in Costa Rica and yes we pray we can sacrifice our first born to the gods of the game…Tis an honor..Our coach used to say, “Fรบtbol: A Progrssive and Terminal Disease.:)

    1. Football and Religion.
      Where one ends
      the other begins.
      A goal in the here and now
      versus a penalty shoot out
      in the here after
      with a coach who always wins?
      Is religion the question,
      and football โšฝ the answer?
      Or is it vice versa? ๐Ÿค”
      Truly a human dilemma, Karima.
      Where does the game end
      and the replay begins?
      When the final siren sounds
      do you check the score
      hoping for more
      or count your offside sins? ๐Ÿ˜ˆ โšฝ ๐Ÿ˜‡


    1. Thanks, John ๐Ÿ™
      Yes, I had to fly the nest
      having been hatched
      into a cut and dry
      Black and White situation
      with a Magpie standing proud
      at the top of a totem
      and ignore all the rest
      in a gladiatorial contest ๐Ÿ‰
      of life and death โ˜ ๏ธ
      Now I can see with more
      than just one eye ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ that
      my tribal team is the best ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  3. My ex played professionally in Argentina so my sons grew up loving โ€œsoccerโ€ for the minute we were together. Lots of joy in that game and skill. Congrats. I know you must be proud of Stefan. Love the pics and videos. That stadium is *packed*! โ™ฅ.

    1. Much like India, Australia is a
      nation with a proud history of
      being obsessed with sport.
      When it comes to cricket ๐Ÿ it’s
      a case of survival of the fittest๐Ÿฅ‡
      Thanks for witnessing the
      spectacle, Aruna ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ˜Ž
