I know what you mean. I saw Russell Crowe (or some famous Aussie actor popular in America) do an interview, like, 10 years ago. He was wearing his team's hat and talked all about it. The Rabbit-oh's? Does that sound remotely accurate?
Anyway I thought, "Hrm, that's interesting."
A month later I saw a friend of mine wearing that SAME ****ING HAT. I remember because it had that damn rabbit logo. How convenient that Russell Crowe just did an interview on The Daily Show in which he talked up his recently purchased sports team, and that my friend is actually a huge fan of that team! In a sport that gets precisely zero attention ANYWHERE in America!
