The Guardian assigned a Sydney-based journalist to live blog former Australian rugby league star Jarryd Hayne’s NFL debut last week, and the results were hilarious.

Now, he’s back for more.

Matt Cleary is live blogging the 49ers-Steelers game starting on Sunday. You can follow along here.

“I’m on a couch in Sydney Town where it’s 02:47 a.m.,” Cleary started. “A sleepy-time you couldn’t assuage with an injection of the most potent caffeine from George Clooney’s magic coffee pellets. But we’ll do our best.”

Mr. Cleary is a hero.

What’s he got to say about Pittsburgh? It’s terrific, if you fancy a “great big hunk of steel.”

Surely, more gems will come about as the afternoon rolls on.
