So, if you’ve got kids who were raised in the 90’s and after, they probably have a hard time believing you when you tell them about the good old days, when there were music videos on MTV and sports (other than poker) on ESPN after midnight.
I’ve told my kids (more times than they can care to hear, I’m sure) that they were raised on the oddball sports that ESPN showed at the wee hours (the times when I got to rock the babies back to sleep after the 2AM feeding) back when – things like Australian Rules Football. I tried explaining these novelties, seemingly to no avail.
But perhaps not. My youngest is off on a 1 month summer study abroad course in, of all places, Australia. So what does she do on one of the free afternoons? She goes to an Australian Football League game!
You never know what kids will remember (even when they don’t).
(That’s right – an AFL team named the Swans. What’s that all about???)
