Rukavina + Olympics

There has never been a Rukavina in the Olympics (pointer from Jason Kottke — to the site, not the Rukavina absence, that is).

Nephew in Australia plays field hockey, or “Hockey” as he calls it (that stuff we do is “ice hockey”). The girls don’t play much hockey — instead they play outdoor Netball, kind of like basketball, but you are not allowed to dribble — just pass.
Of course, the big game there is “Footy”, which we know better as Aussie Rules Football.
