Should auld acquaintance be forgot

June 30, 2010 | MIT Athletic Fields | Boston, Massachusetts | by Stephanie Holt

As Melbourne sank into a slough of perfect footy weather  – cold, wet, unpredictable – we were sheltering from the smarting sunshine and exhausting humidity of a Boston heat wave, elbow-deep in boxes and bags and bubble wrap, packing away a year-long expat adventure. We’d recently discovered that the day our visas expired was the day Boston’s 12-year-old Aussie Rules club would host its first ever tournament.

We wouldn’t miss it for the world.

Belzie: 3 goals

It's been a long dry spell for footy in Ottawa, six years in fact since Aussie Rules kicked off in the nation's capital, each of those seasons without any post-season activity. But it seems it's finally time to let the f word out of the bag: finals.
