Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). I am happy to report that mostly I ate well. I didn't have my camera most of the time - now I have a DSLR it is too attention-seeking. At the end of the week I took my camera along to take a few photos because I found the venue made me quite nostalgic. Pleasingly I also had one of my favourite lunches of the week.
Replays on the scoreboard were great because I am sure I always looked away when a wicket fell. I knew how to follow a game of cricket but even more, I loved watching the crowd - the witty signs people would hold up and the larrikins in Bay 13. I had fun doing the Mexican wave and chanting "he's going home in the back of a divvy van" after the police took away a drunk from Bay 13.
It is a long time since I have been to the MCG to see the cricket. I think my last visit was a football match but my memories aren't that clear. Nevertheless, I found it quite nostalgic to be there. The MCG is a Melbourne sporting institution and a great meeting venue too.
