State of Origin

There's a rather large - okay huge - Australian sporting event on tonight:

Described as "sport's greatest rivalry", the State of Origin series is one of Australia's and the region's premier sporting events, attracting a huge television audience and usually selling out the stadiums in which the games are played. Despite the existence of international tournaments and State of Origin being a domestic competition, it is frequently cited as being the highest-level of rugby league played anywhere in the world.

That might contain just a wee bit of Wikipedia bias. In any case, I'll be watching with the neighbor across the hall, Andrew - on his brand new 46-inch, HD, 3-D, death-ray capable flatscreen TV - and his folks and some friends, so this will be a significant Austrlian learning experience for me. I'll definitely be filing a report on it tomorrow. If I remember anything...
