  1. Hi Lorenzo,

    You've chosen three great facts to share with us. Before I moved to New Zealand in 2010 I had never watched a single rugby game or played one. Crazy 'eh?!

    In Canada (where I am originally from), we spend most of our time watching ice hockey on TV. We absolutely love the sport and will spend hours every week following our favourite team. My team is called the 'Ottawa Senators.' They had a great season this year and even made it to the final round of play-offs before losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins (a team from the United States of America). It was so heartbreaking when they lost because they'd put their heart and soul into it and played for almost 10 months in a row. It is a long season!

    Speaking of sport, do you have a favourite sport? I'd love to know which sports interest you and which one(s) you play.

    I hope that you have time to reply to my comment :)
