Sunday's weather looked to be a repeat of Saturday's: hot and sunny. Four teams made it through the semifinal and two others would battle it out to avoid taking home the wooden spoon. After the first day, it seemed like the two pool winners Calgary/Montreal and New York/Baltimore would be the favorites against the second seeds from the opposite pool.
The USAFL is returning to Louisville for the 2010 USFooty National Championships. Champions will be contested in four Men's Divisions and a Women's Division. In addition to an exciting tournament, a series of Women's Footy Seminars will conducted throughout the weekend.
This years women's tournament appears to be wide open with several traditionally strong teams rebuilding or missing key players. Newer teams are coming into their own and seeking to knock the old cats off the wall.
3 days of fun and mayhem crammed into under 12 minutes. This video tries to capture the experience of the US Footy Nationals.The US Footy Nationals are held annually during early October. Each year the location is moved and generally is held in a good size regional town. In 2009 attendance was at an all time high with some 35 clubs consisting of more than 40 mens and 8 womens teams. The town of Mason, Ohio embraced the bunch of rowdy footballers and learned a lot about our crazy sport!
The women's division trophy from the U.S. Australian Rules Football national championship resides in Wisconsin. Earlier this month, the Milwaukee Lady Bombers won the eight-team tournament, beating the Calgary Blue team, 8.3 (51)-1.5 (11), in the championship game. Thomas, of West Allis, who won the Geoff Cann Medal for MVP of the final, tried to explain "footy" to the Journal Sentinel's Dave Kallmann, who was lost from the opening ruck.
