    I've never been to a baseball game before. Gimme a break, I'm
    only 37! Held in Brisbane last night. Must say it was quite
    enjoyable. Not a huge crowd, but was a good atmosphere. Think I
    counted 3 SLR photogs there. Me with my 30D, a Nikon D200, and a
    Pentax. That was it I think.

    For an international game you could stand right on the fence,
    take photos and I was chatting to some of the players. Fun.

    Althought I've watched heaps of sport I've never photographed it
    much, let alone night sport, and these were all taken with my
    70-200 f/2.8L IS since it's the longest I have.

    So which camera does the 70-200 fit?

    Nice shots.. Since this was Canada against Australia, the better
    question would be "How much beer did they bring?"

  6. Ship beer _to_ Australia? Bit like pouring a teaspoon of water
    into the Pacific.

  7. Naaaa......Everybody likes whatever is imported from somewhere else, whether
    it's better or not. We send California olives to Italy, where they squeeze
    it into olive oil, and ship it back as "Imported Italian Olive Oil" - And,
    it sells like hotcakes for twice the price of the domestic stuff. I think
    you could make a good living just shipping the same thing back and forth
    from one place to another and changing the labels......In fact, I'm sure
    some people do just that......How about this: You buy a little island in the
    middle of the ocean. There is nothing on the island but shipping docks, and
    label factories. You make a living by unloading stuff, changing the labels
    on it, and reloading it back on the same ships to return it to wherever it
    started out, only now it is, "Imported", and therefore commands twice the
    price......You can call your island, "doublemania"....:^)

    We got killed. I had to leave in the 8th innings and Canada was
    up 11-1. :( There's still 2 games to go.

    Canada easily. Congrats to you, I guess :) It was an Olympics
    qualifier series. Still 2 games to go.

    :) Only beer on sale was VB and XXXX Gold. Neither are my
    preferred beers :(

    Funny thing - there were these Pepsi promo girls there with a
    truck full of Pepsi Max and they couldn't give it away. Kids
    were getting the cans and shaking them up to spray each other
    with it LOL.

    Yeah I saw it was a L IS, silly me.

  13. VB is pretty good, although my preferred Oz beer is Coopers. But then I
    was staying in Adelaide for a year and Carlton didn't cut it, great ads
