Tackle Chess

In yesterday's Superbowl, the Pittsburg Steelers defeated the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 in what turned out to be a nail-biting finish. The game had a particular interest for Australians thanks mainly to Ben Graham, a former Geelong player who, yesterday, served as the Cardinals' punter.

But up in Queensland, there is already a strong following for American football. In fact, they even have their own competition. And up there, they call American footy (or gridiron), "tackle chess"!
