We took a tour of the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground), I believe it's the largest sporting stadium in the Southern Hemisphere and the third largest in the world (I'm pretty sure that's what our guide said). If you want to know more about the MCG you can go here.
|4 pickles = benched|
|It takes 15 minutes to (slowly) turn the lights on (or Melbourne would be blacked out!)|
|The boys could give commentary on the actual game, while I would talk about the cuteness factor of the players ;)|
|Warming up is important. BTW this was the room for Collingwoods' game last Friday night......They lost.|
Did we jinx them????
|The next few pics are of the sporting precinct and Melbourne city. Isn't it pretty?|
|Team Pickle...ready to play!|
|Nanny & Grandad pickle.|
|This is the VERY highest seat at the MCG (nose bleed ). I carried a camera bag and the walk to the top had me out of breath, but Mr3P carried #3 and didn't even break a sweat!!!!|
|These lights keep the field nice and dry and are on 24/7 when there is no game.|
