Just found Geekzone when trying to find out why my Orcon email takes s o l o n g to download.
Currently I am in Melbourne whics is definitely NOT the World Capital of Sport = contrary to all the Melbourne spin !
In fact unless you are infatuated by that spiteful concoction they call AFL there is virtually no 'access' to winter sport for us couch potatoes.
I use broadband to read the newspaper reports of REAL sport such as rugby (league and union) as well as MotoGP, WRC, and anything else Kiwis excell at (sevens, golf, IndyCars, sailing, etc) and to sort thru the Aust tv channel LIES about what sport they are going to broadcast and when so that I can maybe catch real sport at local sports bars etc.

AFL will grow on you!

Just tell people you're a Collingwood fan and that Eddie McGuire is god and you'll have plenty of friends! Smile
