    Most people I encountered didn't know who Andrew Bogut was, even though he is Australia's highest paid athlete. They knew that there was an Australian on the team that won the NBA championship. They didn't know the team and didn't know his name. I guess I always assumed that more Australians followed basketball since there a quite a few Aussies on the board and there are a few Australian basketball players.

    Obi Wan Kenobi and Wolverine are Australians. That's all that matters.

    I am disappointed. I thought this would be a discussion of the direction toilet water swirls in Australia.

    I think any sport fan here would know who he is. Non sports fans wouldn't but that's the same anywhere.

    While in Perth I thought that Aussies were taller than average.

    They don't have basketballs in Australia. They do have a large group of folks that follow football religiously though. Football would kill there.
