pictures from first footy (Australian Rules Football) practice  
Amy, one of the organizers, put a picture set on her Flickr stream.

As you can tell, no brutal contact. Just kicking, handballs, catching, and a lot of fun!

Hey, who let that old bald guy in there?

Less blood than I hoped for.

"hoped for"?!?!?

We're definitely amateur here. For the big blood, you have to check out the professionals on YouTube.

Besides, I like my blood on the *inside* of my skin...

Hmmm ... vampires. Brazilian vampires. Brazilian vampire who do capoeira (?) and listen to technobraga (sp?). There's something there...

What do you know about technobraga? I heard something about it on NPR the other day and the music and culture sounds interesting. I think I'm spelling it wrong as Google searches turn up very little in the way of info or music...

Brazilians are very creative. New musical styles pop up all the time. This is the land of samba, bossa nova, MPB, pagode, forró, etc...

The radio article said it's a "remix culture", which sounded neat and intriguing. I'd like to set a story there someday.

And now I must go to wikipedia to find the styles you mentioned that I don't know!
