Last night I took EldestOne and his mate SoccerHero to the "Bash for Cash
", SA footballs charity event to raise money for the bushfire victims (just to be clear here "football" is AFL
, or aerial ping-pong, not soccer). The two state teams, Adelaide Crows
and Port Adelaide
were playing cricket
against each other, which for US visitors, is a bit like ballet dancers trying to play ice hockey (only funnier).
Still, where else can you watch grown men being repeatedly and humorously hit in the groin with leather balls and raise money for charity? On the night there were about 8,500 spectators (not bad for something organised at ultra-short notice) and as of 9:30 pm last night they had raised $110,00 AUD (with more still to come).
