It was a dark and stormy morning at the SCG on the second day of the Australian test match VS South Africa.

The kind of day where the wind howled through the streets, and into the stadium.

As I sat huddled in my seat, trying to stay warm, I could not have foreseen that at lunch time, I would discover one of the greatest crimes to have ever been committed against the Australian people. A crime so heinous, so revolting, that it left a sour (unsweetened) taste in my mouth and a sense of outrage in my heart.

So where does the S.C.G. get off charging $2 for sauce? This is nothing short of hostile, and an act of war on Sydney sports fans.


Just because S.C.G. has declared war on Sydney sports fans, it does not mean that The Brag is encouraging, or asking anyone to steal sauce from the S.C.G. Stealing overpriced sauce is illegal, it is wrong, and has no place in a civil society.
