Without A Trace Star Anthony La Paglia: buys into Sydney FC. And turns up at the launch of the new Australian Leage side wearing boots and gloves. A real passion for the game, although he was a goalkeeper...

I'm shallow - I always think better of stars when I find out they're sports fans (with the exception of 'Scottish' football fan Rod Stewart). This knowledge doesn't excuse La Paglia's god awful English accent in Frasier though!

Good choice.. about time a guard was chosen.. Fits right in with the other guards picked in the past.. Of course Jerry West would have fit right in there as well.

Is Australia a nice place to live?

SF, I enjoyed my three week vacation there, the women seem hotter on average than here and the coffee's definitely better, but you have to drive on the wrong side of the road and you're 12 hours off for European matches.

Excuse my ignorance - I always thought that football (sorry, soccer, whatever) was a minority game among the Aussies? I thought rugby, cricket and aussie rules held sway over there? Mmm, maybe it just seems like Leeds United signs all your best players.
