The Roar got their season off to a good start with a 2-0 victory over the New Zealand Knights. The match was played in front of 20,725 spectators, which was a record for a normal league match in Australian soccer. However, this record was broken soon afterwards with a crowd of 25,208 turning up to watch Sydney FC versus Melbourne Victory. That match ended 1-1 with goals from Dwight Yorke and Archie Thompson. So the new league is off to a great start, then.
Unfortunately, Karen didn’t get her hotdog (we had chips instead), but she did get some beer. Apparently it wasn’t enough beer to make the game exciting, though. :-) I’m not sure what’s wrong with her; how could it have not been exciting? ;-)
