Rich men wanna be kings
The reason we were in Sydney was to see the Sydney Swans play St Kilda at the SCG. Wonderful venue. I've also seen The Boss and, appropriately enough, one-day cricket there.
This fan had an awesome hat but ended the night disappointed - the Swans lost by one point. K was beside himself though because it was the first time he's watched his team win live.
Referee throwing the ball in - it's a very athletic job.
The refs confer on a tough decision.
At half time they set up several sets of goals and lots of kids come out to play several mini games. These two boys were full of beans, waiting for their game to start. I watched them doing that jump-up-and-bump-chests manoeuvre over and over again. By the time I took this photo they had grasped each others' arms in order to crash into each other more successfully - note the different in height.
