There you go Pomchop, for some reason I thought you were English.... cool.pnglaugh.png

Without getting too deeply into the quaint rituals of our American cousins the obsession with educational institution sports in the US has always bemused me.

In my high school/college football days in Australia... real football... (AFL)... we rarely saw a spectator. smile.png

what!!! no parents there abusing the umpire... that was real football. only one umpire to umpire the game , he couldn't see what happen when he was at the other end of the ground...

You should not have seen a spectator when you were playing sceadugenga....you are supposed to keep your eye on the ball.

Usually on the netball girls who came down to watch us if they finished early, often still wearing their short tunics.

The point is, school sports were played during school hours, weekends we played for our local side in the junior grades.

The first time I encountered these guys on the trail, they came running like they were out for blood. The thing is, I like dogs and they were acting just like my dogs, so I stopped and called them over. They were a bit shy at first but soon got over it. Now they are my friends.


Just a different perspective on wild aggressive “sounding” dogs.wink.png

My father-in-law had this unusual looking dog, like a basset hound/German Shepard cross with fox terrier colouring. (I have photos if anyone wants to doubt).

He used to travel far and wide in the pursuit of the fair sex and we still see what must be his progeny/grand-progeny many miles from the village.

Indeed, however you can change the rules and play those sports outside as well so long as the officials are not aware of the rule change.
