Spotted on Friday night:
On the tram up Bourke Street, a quietly-spoken Irish couple asking how to get to Telstra Dome.
Getting off the tram, many International Rules (Australia vs Ireland) fans.
Along the Bourke Street bridge, some enthusiastically doing Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi.
Then boisterously providing a rendition of a whole chorus of We Are Australian.
Down into the station. More crowds of footy fans moving through to the game.
A steam train rolling through platform 13 with the usual impressive combination of noise and smoke, as commuters looked on with bemusement, wondering if something similar would appear for their trip home.

An Irish bloke staying upstairs at the pub I go to had the snot kicked out of him that night. The people sharing his room had to move due to the blood.
