Am I a Secret Aussie

2015 Women's FIFA World Cup Shirt

I am just womdering if somehow I am an Australian somehow. LOL. I have always been interested in the country since I was a little kid. When ESPN was in its infant years I used to watch Aussie Rules Football and still do when it is on. When I was in the U.S. Navy, I got to visit Melbourne in 1993. What a thrill that was. It has been cool that the Oakland A's have had a couple of Australian players in recent years and one of our D-1 college basketball teams in my area (St.Mary's) always has a bunch of Australians on their team every year. So am I a secret Aussie or just in love with the country:

2014 FIFA World Cup Australia Hoodie

The Australian National Baseball Cap for the World Baseball Classic

The Australian National Soocer Jersey

My Aussie Football Melbourne Demons scarf which I bought at a Demons game in 1993

My daugher got this scarf for me when they had the Silicon Valley 7's Rugby Tournament in San Jose in 2017

Got to love my Sydney Blue Sox of the Australian Baseball League

Maybe I am an Aussie at heart becasue the ball is always bouncing for Australia in my court:

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday.
