Australian football will kick your sport's ass

There's a long list of pastimes that Americans just can't understand—cricket, Pai Gow, curling, shirling, etc. I've always shrugged off Australian-rules football as yet another bullet on the roster of baffling competitions. But this new ad for the Australian Football League does a pretty good job of explaining the sport. Well, it at least does a good job of explaining how every other sport is downright wussy-like by comparison. You even get to see a back-climbing "specky," which I'm personally excited about trying out in the office this afternoon. Not my problem if you picked the wrong day to reload the hallway printer, buddy.
