Yesterday was the Reclink Community Cup at Victoria Park, Collingwood. The sports ground has a long history with the Australian Football League, and was once hosted crowds of thousands of fans cheering the Collingwood Magpies. These days, crowds are typically much smaller, as what some regard as a hallowed field is more often used by dog walkers and local community football. The Community Cup brought about ten thousand people. I only attended for a short period, but it was good to see the old ground flooded with kids, dogs, musicians, and people having fun once again.
