Perhaps the Saddest Notice of Them All

What has happened, you see, is that the Sydney Swans lost to the Western Bulldogs in the Australian Football League final.  That's like the Indians beating the Red Sox for the pennant.  Since all of Sydney is now sad, it's the perfect setting for my arrival.

[If you have never seen Australian Football, you don't know what you're missing.  It is not our football, soccer, or even rugby; it's an entirely particular sport that demands the most out of its players, none of whom appear to be older than their mid-thirties and all of whom look to be an orthopedic surgeon's meal ticket for decades to come.]
