Sorry, but I found it utterly boring. Watching men watching a game on TV and then relaying it to us is not really great.
(I used to go to games all the time, so when my team didn't play I wasn't that interested)
If I was an aussie reading this I don't think I'd be happy that migrants come here, slag the place off because it didn't meet their expectations (how can something be too laid back?!) and go home moaning.
I really hope Adelaide doesn't catch up to Britain. We're too materialistic, too work focused, stressed, grouchy...and if that means that I have to talk to an employee at the checkouts...so be it.

Well, I'm 'having a ball' but there again I am over 50. We enjoy being nearer to our family and baby sitting the grandchildren occasionally, winetasting, eating out, walking (and swimming) along the many beaches, free concerts in the parks, farmers markets, cricket and footie (to watch), tennis (mainly on TV), bowls, aquafit, crafting, cardmaking and scrapbooking, quilting. Having coffee or a BBQ with friends.
Now the fitness levels have improved going to give cycling a go around Mclaren Vale. Art Galleries, Museums, wildlife parks, visiting Victor Harbor, Goolwa, Port Eliott and the Coorong .......... boring? not for us. We love this great country and count it a priviledge to be here. Yes, it has its faults (doesn't every place) but we don't dwell on the negatives and life is one big adventure (even at our age)
