This is a picture of the rugby game that I attended at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Stadium! It was the Australia Wallabies vs. South Africa (the team that the movie Invictus was based on) and the Wallabies killed em so it was a really good time to say the least. What was so interesting was both the similarities and the differences between U.S. sports and Australian sports and the marketing/commercialization of each.
Interestingly enough, the price for this game was relatively cheap (only $40 AUD) and we were sitting literally 8 rows up from the field as you can see in the picture. For a Bronco game, which would most likely be far less entertaining these days, that price wouldn't even get you a nosebleed seat. Relative to everything else in Australia, their food and drinks inside the stadium were priced well too. Beers were $6 which is a pretty common price around here, I half expected them to be $12 in the stadium. Food was also pretty much the same price inside the stadium as it was outside.
The stadium itself is really pretty, I remember seeing it my first time I was here, and it hasn't changed much, but it is still cool to think that this is where the Olympics were!
Well that's all for now! I'm finally starting to catch up on these things. I have a couple more ideas, specifically one with an update on my classes and the University coming up so keep an eye out. Also, I uploaded several videos to Facebook today so feel free to look at those. Adios!
