The Footballer

The Footballer Guessed what prized possessions i got my worthless hands on this week?

A book that’s over 2 centuries old, on Australian Football.

As a non-footy fan, i couldnt give a hoot about this book. I would, however, keep the book for posterity’s sakes as it fetches a high price.

Now wouldn’t you, a footy fan, covert the book?

How much would you pay for it?

    Whats it about? Where did u get it from?

    200 years old in a specialised subject, start

    the bidding at $500.00, that’s in American Dollars,

    convert to the Australian Dollar it’ll yield priceless

    to some one or you can give it away to the person

    it means the most to, not being me since its not about baseball!

    1877 is not over 2 centuries ago, it actually 129 years ago which is just over one century.

    Altho watching a game of AFL does feel like 2 centuries have passed.

    I found a WWII dictionary today with a special section

    on War terms-I kept that bastard it was in a bag

    on the side of the road.

    My mate thinks I’m nuts.

    @Laurie, Interesting…

    @Bjorn, You think AFL games are slow? Please don’t tell me your a soccer fan.

  6. Bjorn (unregistered) on August 30th, 2006 @ 1:40 pm

    Nope, I find watching soccer to be similar to watching paint dry. I fully understand why soccer fans are so angry, watching a game for 90 minutes and only seeing 1 goal must be torture.

    There is only one football and that is Rugby ;-)

    Now I will run away very quickly before the Soccer and AFL fans beat me up.

  7. Neil (unregistered) on August 30th, 2006 @ 2:13 pm

    Ok, Rugby is a good answer. Lets also add cricket to the similar to watching paint dry.

    Before you pick on baseball think of how passionate

    a baseball fan can get and your likelihood of ending up

    on the floor during innings.

    Best sex I’ve ever had was between innings.

    How often does your mate take ‘ya watching footy.


  9. Neil (unregistered) on August 31st, 2006 @ 12:42 pm

    Haha, Its usually like 2 minutes between innings.

    With a footy half time break, you have enough time for sex and a sandwich afterwards.

  10. adrock2xander (unregistered) on August 31st, 2006 @ 10:45 pm

    Footy half time? Isn’t that like, 15 mins?

    And you’re able to muster an erection, an orgasm and post-coital feed?

    Whatever happened to good old fashioned foreplay? I pity your partner.


  11. Neil (unregistered) on September 1st, 2006 @ 2:12 am

    Half times probably a bit longer than 15 minutes.

    Foreplay?? I’m a (straight)man in a relationship.

  12. Laurie (unregistered) on September 1st, 2006 @ 4:26 am

    Think a 15 inning game; love those extra innings!!

    I get lots of foreplay through the game he falls in two.


  13. adrock2xander (unregistered) on September 1st, 2006 @ 8:28 am

    What are you saying Neil? You’re digging a deeper hole everytime you speak lol.

    Are you saying that, as a straight man, there’s no need for foreplay? Not only do i pity your partner now, i’m beginning to feel sorry for you.

    Guys like you are a million in a million – the kind all women genuinely try to avoid! Last thing they want is a case of I saw, I came, I didn’t conquer.

  14. Neil (unregistered) on September 1st, 2006 @ 10:22 am

    Hmm, dont really want to go down this road but lets just say everything is good in that category.

    My comment has half joking but as relationships progress there is less foreplay. Theres also less dinners out, roses, and chocolate. Its just a fact of life.

    So…how bout that football book

  15. adrock2xander (unregistered) on September 1st, 2006 @ 9:13 pm

    Haha, there’s no need to get defensive. A facet of a relationship is what you’ve just descrived – every sweet and oh-so-mushy stuff tends to lessen. But hey foreplay is still important!

    The book, well, i’m doing some research on Australian sports. My lecturer has been kind enough to show me his book collection.

    It’s hard, especially when you’ve absolutely no interest in ‘handball’.

    Oh, and that analogy on watching paint dry? Ouch, i pity your obscene lack of understanding in a global game. It’s ok, as long as you keep obsessing over your national sport, your myopia wouldn’t be frowned upon.


  16. Laurie (unregistered) on September 2nd, 2006 @ 5:48 am

    I can only speak from my own experience, foreplay

    gets bettre’ with age much much bettre’

    where do you mates get this confounded information anyways?


  17. adrock2xander (unregistered) on September 2nd, 2006 @ 10:39 am

    I think it’s still important. Though there’s less of it in a marriage or long partnership.

    I don’t know about Neil though. He cracks me up.

  18. Neil (unregistered) on September 4th, 2006 @ 12:39 am

    Too much time spent posting on here for foreplay and international games of cricket and soccer. I expect to see a post on “romancing the opposite sex”.

    @Laurie, Lets go Mets!
