Kickin' With Klatt: The One from Melbourne

July 2017 – Now that it’s been a year since I dropped everything and moved to Australia, I suppose it’s time for an update.

Examining American AFL TV Ratings

We are nearing the midpoint of the Australian Football League season, and it is shaping up to be a fantastic one filled with some fantastic stories.  From North’s hot start to the resurgence of the Western Bulldogs and the blossoming of GWS, it has been captivating so far.

Kickin' with Klatt: The One at the SCG

As I sit here on my 14 hour flight back home, listening to Spotify and trying to get some sleep, it all keeps running through my mind. With sore muscles serving as a constant reminder that I just played an entire game of footy with no rest the day before, it's hard not to keep thinking about it. Add to that the fact that I just played on the historic Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) in front of what got up to an estimated 6,000 people before the GWS Giants and the Sydney Swans took the field, and you can see why it's all still racing through my mind. 

Between the Posts: All of the Footy.

I want to say I've had some time to reflect on the weekend now that this is my second Monday of the week, but everything has been such a whirlwind the past 36 hours so I haven't had time to really digest the situation. Arriving at the Sydney airport led to my frantic 2 hour sprint around the building because I found out I didn't have an actual ticket to get home (shout out to Cyclone Winston), so I didn't have time to really gather my bearings before the long sleep in the air.

Kickin' with Klatt: The One the Day After

I've now had a day to sit back and reflect on the big day. To first go over it a bit, I'll say that it was a really fun time and a great experience. The morning session was all fitness testing. I was middle of the pack (of about 50 girls) for all of them, as I expected, although my 20m sprint was on the better end. So those results were no surprise to me.
