Just thought that I'd send out an initial blog after having just now joined this group/website.
I'm from Melbourne, currently living in Chicago and desperately looking for work. Oh, and I do follow the Sydney Swans, have been since they were South Melbourne and have some very vivid memories of them when under their old name.
I like collecting football items and am a big stats fan - so the AFL Yearbook is one of my favourite books.
As for players, well, of course I do like the Sydney boys, especially Brett Kirk and Adam Goodes, but also like to watch just good plain football.
