On paper it was going to be a great game – Bulldogs vs. Broncos, or second against third. I thought that I’d be one of those annoying idiots that turn up to a game with the colours of a team not playing – Melbourne Storm.
We met up with Nay’s work colleague Sarah and some of her family. I brought along the sports ears and relayed most of the referees calls to bemused fans.
After 20 minutes, it was pretty clear that the game was a bit one sided. The Bulldogs has three injured players, one other on report and were three tries down. It didn’t get any better and the final result of 30-0 was flattering to the unlucky Bulldogs.
On the walk home we spent some of our time staring up at the Holden blimp with its enormous bright television screen on the side. Luckily I didn’t fall into the swamps.
