Let The People Sing

So me and my pal Fabulous headed up to Brisbane on the weekend to see Celtic play local lads Brisbane Roar.

Besides the fact that we wiped the floor with them (Celtic 3-0 Brisbane Roar), and that it was a genuinely entertaining game, the atmosphere at the pubs around the stadium was amazing.

If you don't get a lump in the throat when there's 30,000 people all singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone,' then you're one cold hearted son-bitch.

FYI, a 'shebeen' is (or was) an illegal bar or grog house where illicit booze was sold. The term, whilst obviously Irish in root, is still relevant in parts of South Africa. And anywhere Glasgow Celtic FC supporters are drinking.
