DAY 5: SOCCEROOS

8 Jun


Nothing too much to report today. It was a pretty uneventful day or as uneventful as a day in Sydney can be. We started it off with our internship orientation meeting. This was two hours of common sense and stating the obvious. It was even more exciting then it sounds. Anyway, after that we had a travel meeting, which was actually really interesting. A travel agency has all these different trips we can do. I just have to decide which trip(s) I want to go on (dear mom and dad, please send money J.

After those meetings, I went on a mission. In one of my previous blogs I talked about how we visited Olympic Stadium and there was a big game coming up. That game, State of the Origin, is the biggest rugby match of the year. I want to go. I have to go. Well, that game is actually Wednesday night. I went to a ticket office and purchased eight tickets for part of the big group that all wants to go. All together we purchased 35 tickets and are all sitting together. It is going to be awesome. I really can’t wait.

After returning to my apartment, I found out there was a friendly (exhibition) soccer match between New Zealand and Australia (The Socceroos). Knowing that soccer is huge over here, some of us thought it would be fun to go to a pub and check out the atmosphere for the game. We went to a bar called Cheers and watched the game there with some local Aussies and even some New Zealanders. It was quite the atmosphere. We had a great time. I don’t even like soccer but this game was pretty exciting or so I’ve been told. Australia trailed 0-1 early, tied it in the second half and then scored the winning goal in stoppage time. Although I have trouble getting into soccer, it was fun to be a part of and I am looking forward to going back during the World Cup.

Well, I don’t have any pictures to share today. Day 5 wins the Boringest Blog Award. Tomorrow I have my interview and first class so hopefully there will be more to report then.

Cheers!
