Hot shots: Aussie Rules Football recovery session

New, 4 comments

U.S. sports teams need to start this tradition.

Aussie Rules Football is a fun sport to watch and easy to figure out the rules after a short time. It helps that the players are uniformly hot.

They also have a tradition Down Under of team recovery sessions, where the players train near a body of water and finish it off with a nice dip. It's a shame American pro sports teams don't start a similar tradition. People would pay to see Jordie Nelson, Buster Posey or Reggie Bush in a swimsuit.

Here are some great Getty Images photos by Michael Dodge of a recent recovery session of the Collingwood Magpies.
