Gluttons for cricketing punishment, we were off to the MCG to witness days three and four of the Boxing Day Test (it didn't make it to Day Five).
Our team was very disappointing, but theirs was good and the ground was sensational. Him Outdoors has always wanted to see a Boxing Test at the MCG, so now we have, and although far from thrilled with the result, it was still a good experience.

|The Scoobys were happy|
|Nice ground: shame about the result...|
Fortunately, the bars were still open.
