Oish, mamele, go you Socceroos

Last night was a nail biter of a game. I was pretty stressed out watching the Socceroos annihilate Japan

It was a little touch and go at first, but those Aussies, when they got started, they really rubbed it in.

I went to my local- the Beach Rd. They gave out beanies and little balls. I got there a little late, so when I asked for "2 Tigers and a Beanie", the dude thought I said "2 Tigers and a VB" and so I got a free beer out of it, so it wasn't all bad!

People couldn't find me because I was wearing my "Where's Wally?" top and there was a little bit too much smoke and I still feel like I've smoked 10 packets of cigs...

The atmosphere was incredible. By the time we won, strangers were friends, friends were lovers and it feels about 6 billion trillion times better than the olympics. Especially when a pub is packed with people at 1am on a school night!

Here are some pics, and there is a video of the Beach Rd a few minutes after we won. I was too dumb to take a video as we won...but then again I wanted to really live the moment instead of look at it through a viewfidner!

The Aussies sure did great but they need to work on their goal celebrations.

Hopefully they will have what to celebrate for against Brazil and Croatia.

My preferences:
1) Kangaroos
2) Impersonating an Australian football umpire just after a goal has been scored.
