The Greater Western Sydney Giants: A big, big sound from the west of the town

There’s a new Aussie Rules club in the Australian Football League (AFL) this year: The Greater Western Sydney Giants.

Greater Western Sydney Giants

The Giants even have their own theme song, the tune borrowed from the Soviet entry in the 1976 Eurovision Song contest, and featuring one of the original Igveski Brothers (now a resident of Greater Western Sydney). “There’s a big, big sound from the west of the town / It’s the sound of the mighty Giants / Feel the ground is shaking / The other teams are quaking / In their boots before the Giants / We take the longest strides and the highest leaps / We’re stronger than the rest / We’re the Greater Western Sydney Giants / We’re the biggest and the best”.

h/t Brony Ibs, late one night in San Francisco last November. I remember everything you said, man. Everything.
