So Melbourne is so cultured you discuss the footy at cultural events.
..take that Tchaikovsky and Hoffman
Forgive me for pointing out the obvious...but you usually go to the ballet / concerts / art gallery to discuss other issues like your appreciacion for what your experiencing.....or even...how Sydney is so much better than Melbourne, cause they are just too obsessed with sport down there, for example these people sat next to me and discussed sport at the ballet!
Did you all get up and wave your cummerbunds (in club colours of course,) over your heads Sheady style after the event to show your appreciation.
In my 6months in Melbourne i discovered there is such a thing as taking things too far...i.e. Babies in all Collingwood getup.....cars with baby blue on board, not only on the sticker on front and rear bumpers but on the sun shades and fluffy toy on the rear parcel shelf. I'm not saying you don't see things taken to that extent in Sydney..it just occurs less, and their bogans as Bazza so elequently puts it or the english on a cricket tour:lol:
You see jerseys around Sydney, but it does work on a sliding scale from east (least amount) to west (formal wear).....But surprisingly the western example occurs at an alarming rate the further north and south you get out of the greater Sydney metro area.
sh*t if I could were my Wallabies / Souths / Australian Cricket get up all day every day i reckon i would...so im moving to Melbourne...what the F**K am i wasting my time in Sydney for.
