In Zagreb Aussie Rules OK

As my travelling companion just crudely retorted, no im not the slightest bit interested in footy at home – PERIOD. When im overseas however, it pulls on my little ocker heart strings.

Yesterday wamdering around the Croatian capital of Zagreb we found an expat pub called the Old Pharmacy Pub. We popped into check it out and they had what appeared to be something from the Hawthorn Hawks footy team on the walls. Au Contraire. It was the Zagreb Hawks footy team, playing in the local Aussie Rules leagues.

Locals would be handy at the game too. They come in two sizes. Five foot five and stocky, or big and built like a brick supermarket. Chuck in a crazy war vet and I reckon youd have a quality game of footy id happilly watch. Not like that contrived crap they syndicate at home.
