This weekend Dane and I enjoyed our very first Australian Football League game. By default, we have become Sydney Swans fans, and let me be honest, thats the team I would have picked anyway. I mean where else are you going to find an amazing mascot like a swan that rides a scooter around the field and shakes his tail feathers?
Here are the Sydney Swans warming up. I titled this picture "let's go girls." I think only Brock will get that joke, but it certainly made me smile.
We went with our amazing a beautiful friend Amelia and the night was full of firsts.
We had our first meat pie. Wow, they are good. Flakey pastry crust with a hearty beef center. So yum!
And for the first time ever, we saw the Olympic torch. But not only was it the torch, it was actually lit. I didn't realize this, but all Olympic sites around the world light their torch during every Olympic games. We just happened to be at Sydney Olympic Park and snagged a couple pictures. It really was quite impressive to see.
As for the game, the the swans lost, but it went all the way down to the end. As for me vs the magpie, well its 0-2, but tomorrow morning that is all going to change!
Love you all,
the kids down under
