What are you doing to celebrate the end of exams? Can I make a suggestion?
Well, the Breakers are versing off against the Cairns Taipens in a Student Night on 9th November at Spark Arena. I know, it’s sports. Trust me, I’m bookish it’s not really my thing either but here’s the genius of it all: You don’t have to be a fan to go.
Amazing, I know! At its heart, this isn’t about the game. Think of it like a music festival – you don’t have to be a fan of Ed Sheeran to go to Glastonbury. Okay, here’s a better analogy: You don’t have to be a fan of any of the teams to go to the Sevens. Honestly, do you genuinely think that a whole bunch of drunk people dressed as mustard bottles are there to support the US team?
No, they’re there to have a good time. It’s about the spirit of the event, the experience of it, and just having fun. If you bring your friends along (and why wouldn’t you? You’re celebrating), it’ll be a great time, even if you don’t know where the ball is supposed to go. It’s supposed to go in the basket – I think, don’t trust me on that, I’m just making the assumption that, since the sport is called basketball, the basket might be involved in some way.
