Hey, hey, we're the monks, by Andrew Webster - The Sydney Morning Herald - 16th June 2008
The Swans faithful started cheering wildly when they thought they saw the Dalai Lama walking across the SCG after the victory against St Kilda on Saturday night. It was actually one of six Gyuto monks from Tibet who had attended the game after watching the spiritual leader preaching at Homebush earlier that night. Decked in Swans scarves, they performed a chant in the rooms and presented resident Swans Buddhists Brett Kirk and coach Paul Roos with white scarves. And in a sign that sport really does bring people together, also sighted was Underbelly star Les Hill and Shane McMahon, the son of WWE promoter Vince, who was distributing tickets to yesterday's "Smackdown" in Sydney.
