Titus O'Reily, Australia’s least insightful sports writer, takes you through the history of Australian sport and the people who made it. In his inimitable comic style, he explains how sport has shaped this wide brown country into the greatest nation to ever stride the sporting globe.

 

Covering League, Aussie Rules, Tennis, Cricket, Football, Swimming, Netball, Union, Quidditch and many more, Titus looks at how sport has united Australians and given them something to do in their spare time. Part history, part social commentary and part the ravings of a madman, Titus examines:

· League vs Union, what it says about you as a person· Why it’s the AFL’s fault that Victorians are so awful
· How soccer is the biggest threat to Australia since Communism
· Can you not like sport and be an Australian?
· The etiquette of watching sport
· Cricket, is not boring, OK Sharon?
· Horse racing, not just about betting but mostly about betting
· The Olympics or why Australia is only important every four years
