Finally, there are a group of Aussie puntas (above) that Mookie is trying to track down. They have become stars on American TV. Let us know if you know any of these guys.

do you ever actually blog about anything? Or just copy and paste from all over the internet? Trusty google gets done what you give us. Or I could go and read the world's best basketball blogger on Yahoo Sports every day of the week who actually writes about something.
