My Australian football team is the West Coast Eagles. It’s a strange thing to support a team from afar, particularly when the only telecast games are many days (or weeks) delayed. I’m almost at the point where less than half the team are strangers! However, this doesn’t make things any less exciting when your team wins the premiership – just – to the team they lost to last year.
There’s a delayed telecast of the game this afternoon in Harvard square, but I’m not sure I’ll go. It’s $20 to get in the door, and I’m bound to be surrounded by people barraking for the other team.
