At least you will have a good view when that scoreboard falls off the rock face and crushes Henderson!
Quite jealous of everyone who is going, looks a very unique stadium.
Hope so mate. We need to get them all playing together and hopefully things will start to happen for us and it will be a better performance.
It is incredible. I have never seen anything like that. Are their fans all mountain goats?
