I can't imagine Australia's national pastime being anything that can be played indoors.

I thought their national pastime was requiring everyone to have big boobs:

Presumably this is so they can get more thumbs when they post pictures of their girlfriends on BGG.

I thought losing the Ashes was Australia's national pastime?

You do most of your beer drinking outside?

We're an inventive lot - we can drink beer almost anywhere.

I've certainly spent more time playing boardgames than watching Australia lose the Ashes, drinking beer or eating pies.

Ouch, that one hurt.
Good thing we touched up the Windies tonight or I'd be crying myself to sleep after that nasty slur!

Interesting after dinner conversation I got into last night, obviously after one of our national pastimes of boardgaming, was that it appears that heavy binge drinking is becoming the norm, a lot of the younger people do it and some of these people tend to be the peope who got into fights or be a nuisance to others....geez, I'm beginning to sound like an old person.
