We've already had a few upsets including Mexico's victory over Germany and Brazil's tie with
Seriously though, the AFL did continue playing through the World Cup. And stuff happened! Let's get to it!

Well, apparently that's what our computers said this morning as there is no Internet and the drives are down. There is no actual productive work to be done.
So, I look to DFO to keep me amused.
Last night was fun with the Spelling Bee. After that, though, man nothing.

This is my favourite "theme" Round that the AFL does to promote a cause or honor a group of people. In this case, it is Sir Doug Nicholls, a pioneer in advocating for Aboriginal people's rights in Australia.
