Episode 8 - A Yank on the Footy
This week's episode takes a quick look at last week’s Super Bowl, but the main focus is a little known hybrid game that was developed out of necessity in 1943. A big shout out to Orville Gibson of Russell Island in Queensland, for pointing me in the right direction with some of the questions that I had researching the US military in Australia.
