No worse fate can befall a young man or woman than becoming prematurely entrenched in prudence and negation.


So Henry has signed up for Auskick, which for the uninitiated is a program to get kids playing Australian rules football (boys and girls). In doing so, he had to nominate *his* favourite team. Forced into a bind he wisely chose the (sixteen time Premiership-winning) Essendon Football Club [his Father's team] over the travesty that is the South MelbourneSydney Swans Football Club (the rabble that his mother follows).

Wise move Henry!

Even more exciting: the Auskick season hasn't even begun but we have already flagged an urgent request has come in from Auskick HQ. Yes, Henry's first ever game will probably be as curtain raiser to the nationally televised North Melbourne Kangaroos /Greater Western Sydney Giants stoush - for full Premiership Points - on the 8th of April at Bellerive Oval!

Yes, ten minutes into his career and he's featuring at the top level...

Just betweeen you and me, how far can he punt the ball? Or is he going to use the often maligned drop kick?

Or will he just run around and have fun? Don't forget the fun, Roddy!
