    I know it’s spring in Australia, but seriously? Ice cream truck during the school season?

    It’s school holidays in Queensland this week and next week. Not sure about the other states.

    Yep … Victoria, too.

    We’ve had some “nearly ice-cream weather” the past couple of days, but expect an icy blast for the next few. AFL (Aussie Rules Football) Grand Final day, Saturday, is forecast to be 16C with rain.

    Having watched part of an AFL game, I can only ask, will the players realize it’s raining? My son’s girlfriend plays rugby; I have assured him that Aussie Football is rougher. :)

    When all I have is a hammer, everything looks like a smashed thumb.

    Here in Sydney we have the ice cream vans all year round.

    The players realise it’s raining when the ball gets slippery. Today’s elite players are “wusses”, some games are even played inside under a stadium roof these days.

    If you can find them, look at some old games from, say, the 50s and 60s (mostly black and white films – maybe now on You Tube or somewhere). The rain was often so heavy and the grounds so muddy that all players became caked in mud and it was very difficult to tell “who was who” and for which team they were playing.

    Those old days were also the era of the “enforcer” players who seemed to spend more time belting the opposition players than chasing and playing the ball.
