    Howdy Liam,

    My best friend hails from Shark Bay, Australia. And I've been a huge AC/DC fan from way back. That's the extent of my Oz connection.

    I'll bet your Charvel sounds great through that Marshall. Welcome to TGP!

    Liam,

    Welcome! I am new myself. I am a Brisbane Lion's fan. How did they do last year? When does the new season start?

    Thanks!

    Hey Oldjam, not sure on the Lions, don't really follow the AFL, but I don't think they did too well. The glory days are over. The new season starts soon though, early March I think. I am into the rugby league, and go for the North Queensland Cowboys.


    Thanks for the welcome everyone!

    I wish you well then. I met a few league players at a sports club in Sydney but I can't remember their names now. It was in 2001. I love the land of OZ. I had one of the best times of my life in Brisbane at a Lions game! I drank my weight in Carlson Cold and had quite a few people buy me beers all night. I went to the playoff game and everyone was joking with me about being a Yank and not knowing the rules. They taught me the rules in 10 minutes and I out cheered them all. Could have been the Carlsons. I had a great time. When the game was over (Lions won), about 30 people stayed surrounding me and talking to me about American Pro and College sports. Wonderful place wonderful people! I will never forget it and it will always be a major highlight in my life.

    G'day Mate!

    Awesome! How has the surf been this year? I am one of the few landlocked surfers here in Colorado. Well, not really a surfer. I have caught 19 waves over the last 5 years, but I feel I have the soul of a surfer. I also have a killer surf video collection.

    Great to have you.

    Surfs up!
