Footy final fever (of the Aussie kind) in Fulham Here we are at 7am celebrating the victory of the great Sydney Swans in the AFL Grand Final for 2005! I dragged everyone out of bed at 3am, and we all shuffled down to the pub where we were presented with a meat pie and six Extra Dry's (mmmmm....breakfast). Massively outnumbered by Western Australians, a handful of Sydney supporters shared hugs, high-fives (and ok, maybe the occasional tear) when we JUST won by four points. But there were no hard feelings, and at the end of the game when the music came on and we all launched into a drunken rendition of 'My Happiness' by Powderfinger, closely followed by 'Land Down Under', it was great to be an Australian in London :) Posted by Picasa
