Ok….so I’ve strayed slightly from football, but seeing as the Boxing Day test is currently playing out down at the MCG, and what with my love of grandstands and stadia, this photo seemed apt.
Yes, straight from 1994, it’s mine and my brothers Test Match game on steroids, with much thanks to our extensive collection of lego. Note the Richmond fan standing on the grassed area, and the red & green 3rd umpire lights adoring the ‘main stand’, as was the style at the time.
Click on the below thumbnails and see the oddly placed cameramen (a la Waverley Park cameras in the pocket) and the apparent car accident in the car park!
Most of the grandstands have survived and are sitting around somewhere at mum and dads, but the test match game has long since disintegrated.
Thanks to mum for the pics!
