    Default For you Australians

    We have this Australian basketball player on our NBA team. Good player, supposedly the dirtiest player in the NBA but we like him :-)

    Well it says here that he was born in Maryborough, Victoria, and played on your national team.

    I didnt know surfing had championships but I guess it makes sense! Surfing isn't real big in Wisconsin lol.

    Kite surfing on one of those massive lakes nearby? Can't imagine living so far away from the beach, there's something about the coast that I can't shake that is for sure.

    Yeah I agree , beach life is hard to beat . Favourite is snorkelling in the shallows and scuba diving for crays .

    Sheboygan is called The Malibu of the midwest. They host a surf competition in the fall in Lake Mighigan.

    Most of the surfers will wear dry suits instead of wet suits

    I did not know that. Lake Michigan doesn't really kick up surf waves, does it?

    Baseball Trivia time:

    Back in the 90's, the Milwaukee Brewers were the first team to have an all Australian battery (pitcher and catcher combo).

    Can anybody name the two players?

    You get one point... Dave Nilsson was the catcher. Though him and Davey Nelson are two different people.
