This is basically just a little hobby. You know, UNI's not the most time consuming for me. It only takes a couple, like a day or two out of my week. So I thought I'dfill up my time, especially in lockdown, with something else, and this hasbeen more than enjoyable, to be honest. It's been very rewarding.So, yeah, I'm not doing this for fame or anything to get views, but it is kind of Nice, you know, when people get aroundyou. So I appreciate anyone who said anything nice about the show, anyonewho's supported it in any way whatsoever. And but today's episode to celebrate thefifty special. I thought it would be quite fitting to those who are theloyal listeners those who are new. Episode one, me and our man here, Christian, we sat down and talked about our top five favorite live sportingmoments of our lives. Is, so it's something that we were actually outin person and a moment is, you know, something. It's not likeI don't know the right a cup is not a moment, it's something small. So something like, you know, a couple minutes or something, theend of a game, a certain shot, stuff like that. So today,what I thought would be fitting is if I get every guest who's beenon the show so far to send me in their favorite live sporting moment andI would make a bit of a montage of every single guest we've had.We're going to be going through them in chronological order, so from who appearedfirst to who appeared the latest, if you know what I mean. Andyou know I might pop in in between a few just to introduce a fewpeople if they haven't introduced themselves, but just quickly, because you know meand you can't be left out of this completely. What did you say tothose who didn't listen to episode one? What was your number one moment?Don't we don't need to go into it into too much depth, but soI'm not left out of this chat. What did you have? Yep,so mine was the was Stephen Locks match whinning goal in the twenty eight andshowdown at the Adelaide Oval, which we both witnessed live. Yeah, yeah, a great moment. Love that. And then mine was a bit ofa pod. I think. I can't. I don't even know the year byheart. I think it was the two thousand and twelve a league grandfinal, the Brisbane Ror, famous wall, famous for SOC fans, a leaguefans in particular, but one of the great soccer matches of all time. They, you know, came back from to kneel down in the lastten minutes of extra time and then one on penalties. So that was mymoment. The Brisbane rule, the mighty raw. Can't lie. I haven'twatched a raw game in about seven years, but the mighty row got up.But before we quickly get into first up we've got Campbell because he wasin episode three. You were in the first two episodes. But before yougetting too young, C Macca, I just need to thank you pilch.Obviously I thank everyone equally, but I think you deserve a bit of anextra thanks the amount of times I've sent...

...you a message the night before,sometimes even on the day that or do you mind recording today? I needto get an episode out, or just anything. You've helped me like,you know, pick titles, pick thumbnails for the Youtube. You've made melike think of ideas and you've always been there the whole way, supporting it.

Always a pleasure to get on the show and I'm honoredto have that many appearances. And told for the next fifty episodes, yeah, I'm looking forward to I was singing that before in the shower, likeepisode a hundred, like fifty's been a long time. Episode a hundred,we might be like out of lockdown, or we might be who knows,the whole might change. That's like sixteen weeks. Way, I think Iworked it out the other months.

Got Okay and put a new calendars.But yeah, so thanks a lot, pillage. Once again, thanks toeveryone who's been involved in anyway. Thanks to the listeners who listening now,even though they're not listening so I can't really thank them, but thanks toanyone who's listened to any of them. And Yeah, so here is Campbell. Hi Guys. So I'm Campbell. You may know me from him she'spodcast. I usually talk about movies, marvel wwa. That's usually my fortune. You've probably heard my voice and I've seen this face. But the questionis, what is my favorite live sporting moment of the decade? So Iwould probably say I have a tie for to so my first one was wewent to Sydney last year to watch game three state of origin. So itwas already pretty tense because I'm pretty sure this was the tie break around.So my whole family was an edge. I was on edge. It wasalso was a very special my more all dressed up in blue. It wasthe first time we've into a state of origin game in quite a long time. So we were already so pumped and the game was the most intense andrl game I've ever seen in my life. Blues was smashing it, we werecrushing the game and then Queensland came back and we won the game withinthe last twenty seconds, which is just unheard of, you know. Andit was just the crowd going crazy because we were also near a blue supportersso it was just the crowd was just really into the game and it wasjust everyone was screaming. I lost my voice the next day. It washonestly one of the CRAZIEST AND LL Games I've been to and it was greatto see former West Tiger player while he was with the westones. I know, here's what the wrists. The Time Teddy James Tedesco Man of the match. So yeah, that'spot event. Was Pretty, pretty crazy. So mysecond sporting meant would have to be when, last Christmas we went over to England, lucky enough, and we went to an EPL game and we wentto Liverpool versus wolves and the game already started off amazing the day already startedoff amazingly because my team, Chelsea, one like twenty minutes prior because itwas a game just before live pool, as wolves so I was already elated, but just being in the St Adium, like you always see epl games likeon the TV or you watch the match highlights, but you never seeit in person and it's just just crazy, like when the fans saying never walkalone. The energy in that room. Everyone was holding up their red scarfs. Who was I was just stunned by the Camaraderie in that stadium andI think that's what really makes these two sporting moments the best of the decadebecause of the energy in that stadium, like the Blues Energy and the LiverpoolEnergy was just crazy. So those are my life sporting events. Thanks forthat one, Campbell. Next up is phraser, my dad, phrase mccorcadale. He has been in four episodes of the PODCAST and he's first appearance wasin episode for the my parents episode. So let's see what he has tosay. Congratulations, a missing your fifty podcast is a fifties put podcast orfifty anniversary? I'm not sure, but...

...well done. It's been some rivetingconversations, some good, some bad, some ugly, but at least youhaving a crack and that's a good thing. From my well, question that I'vebeen posed is what is the best live sporting event that I've seen,and I've been very fortunate in my fifty seven years that I've seen lots ofsport and lots of exciting things and it's one of those things that you're moreyou think about it, the more you remember the good things and the dangerousposes relativity. By that I mean you remember myst more recent things. Soif you look at the last twelve months, you know the two things that standout is the state of origin, the climactic state state of origin,and then, of course, the soccer matches that we saw, football matcheswe saw in England when we were over there for Christmas, and they reallydo, you know, they are the stop. But the thing you thinkto yourself is, is that Itage, cause that's more recent. It's interestingthat football should be in there because most of the sporting things that I've watchedis dominated by cricket and Rugby League, because that's my two passions as asporting person, cricket more in a cricket I've seen lots of things. Youknow, I've Seen Greg Chapel break records, I've seen Dennis Lille break records,I saw them play their last three test, last test where they willplay together. We saw Michael Mitchell Johnson just tear apart England on that lastday in the first test. Went in the recent actions, or not recent, but two thousand and twelve thirteen, two thousand and thirteen fourteen ashes whichset up that summer. So there's been some really good cricket events and I'msure the more I think about it more or come back, probably the highlightfor me for cricket is Jeff Thompson versus the West indies back in on UNnine hundred and seventy six when he absolutely just tore through the West indies andI never ever seen anything like that before. So you see lots of individual greatthings, but I think crickets also an interesting one because it's more ofa gradual build up. So it's always you know, is it that event, whereas with Rugby League a much shorter time frame and things move at amuch faster rate and rugby league so you remember more. Probably when I nowlook back, there's I mean obviously following a team like Balmaine and then WestTigers. The good times a few and far between, but when they havegood times it is good times. And probably the game that stands out andthe live event that I really treasure the most is was the semi final againstSt George and the two thousand and five premiership rain. I like that gamewhile I was there, whereas the grand final, we didn't go, butI was think the grand finals a bit more of an anti climate compared tothe week before. And the thing that I loved about that game was,first of all, we were there. It was a sold out out.It was over fortyzero people and it was dominantly. You know, it wasa pure tribal game, like Saint George and at West Tigers. Half thecrowd was in orange and half the crowd was in white. So it reallywas what everyone talks about when you see that tribalism, and it was justa magical night and I think you know that I had you know, Iwas there with Nick, I was there with Tommy Moreen, Michael Cameron wasthere with his girlfriend somewhere else in the crowd, and then of course youhad Hamish, you were there and lock them was there and hey, meissue running you put five years old, and then nick was there. Soit was, you know, a true family event. And it was aone of those magical nights where things huge, crowd huge, huge impact. Then, of course, Benjie Marshall scored a try very early in the matchwhere he just ran right around Mark Gasnier and that that just set up thetone for the rest of the night and then the Tigers just actually dominated.And then there was a period, I remember, in the second half whereSt George started coming back, because you just knew that they would come back. I think Trent Barrett either sent up a try or scored a try andthings were starting to get all this going to get a bit edgy and duringthat period the school board or the timer on the school board broke and soyou had no idea really how long was left in the game and you weretrying to guess. But then there was a period where the Tigers got abit big enough lead and with five minutes to go you knew they were goingto go the grand final and and I remember the buzz in the crowd aspeople realize that this team was going to...

...do it. And you know,when you consider the last time that a lot of the supporters in that crowdhad success was in one thousand nine hundred and eighty nine. You could actuallyfeel the enthusiasm and that just use buzz of excitement as people know that they'regoing to make it, and I think that's what I really enjoyed was thatlast five minutes where you just knew that they are they're going to do this, they couldn't lose, nothing that's going to stop them from doing it.Then you just sat and just absorbed it and you just sat in your seatand looked around and it just was an awesome night. Then, of course, we hung around and we most of the players came out. We've gotautographs and it was just a great night and, like I said, Iwas found the grand final a week later a little bit of an anticlimax.You know, it was great to win, but it was an anticlimax. Sothat that by far away is my best sporting memory, the one thatwould come pretty close to it now, and, as I said, Ido worry that this is more recent so it's in your head. Was theday we saw Liverpool the wolf's and field and for the theater of Sport,I don't think of cou get any better than to sit there. I justthought that was just a it was hard to describe and you know I thenwas so lucky to be there and feel it and you could only imagine whatit must be like when there's a big, big game on. I enjoyed thatand then when we backed up to see arson all about a week later, you know you felt it again. So live the Liverpool game would benow my number two. The state of origin obviously, would be in thattop three. So it's quite interesting the two of my top two of mytop three events is in. That is in. That is just recent,but by far away. It's all about the West Tigers. For me,two thousand and five doesn't get any better. Unfortunately, that night you didn't thinkit would be another least fifteen years before we see it happening again.I look forward to it happening again and that's what keeps you alive as asupport at that anticipation that's going to happen. But it was a great night.I got to share two of my three boys and got shirt Nicole andit was just fantastic. So that's it, Amish, and as I said atthe beginning, well done on all your podcasts and I look forward tobeing a more important part of the podcast going forward, because when I'm onit I think the standard lifts. Okay, see, thanks that one. Dad, always trying to be a comedian. You up pretty funny. May.Next up we've got mum, also known as Nicole. She's appeared inthree episodes of the PODCAST, similarly debuted as dad did, in the myparents episode, episode four of the Potty. So let's hear what she has tosay. Hi, I'm the coal hoishes mum. First off, I'dlike to congratulate Hamish. I'm reaching his fifty podcast. The dedication that I'veseen over this time of him, you know, trying to come up withgreat eyed ideas that were interesting and that we engage the people that he hadon his podcast, as well as his audience and how he included family andfriends. It's been a real testament to his dedication and strive to always deliversomething that's all of a good standard. So congratulations, Hamish. When Iwas trying to think of my most favorite live sporting event, I did comeup with a few things at first, and then I sort of had alight bolb moment one night. I know that doesn't happen very often, butI actually think I'm not going to. I'm actually I'm actually attacking this adifferent way. I actually think my most favorite live sporting moment is that isthose that leave you with a tear in your eye, that you remember thatfeeling that you have at that moment at the live sporting event that you're at, that you remember that feeling the next day, the next week, thenext month, the next year, the...

...next decade. I think the mostfavorite sporting live moments are those that bring people together and allow people to sharememories together and experiences and hits you hard when it's maybe not a great outcome, or it fills you with elation when it's when it's a great outcome.So I think that's the true testament of the best live sporting moment is whenit leaves you with those feelings, just leaves you that with those feelings andit hits you right there and I think sport can bring people together and yeah, so they're they're my favorite live sporting moments. So a couple of theseexamples that that I'm talking about would be the two thousand and nineteen state oforigin in Sydney and at a and said stadium. It was just so great. The atmosphere, the VIBE and being able to share it with my wholefamily and my sister in law and watching the look on my boys faces.That was just amazing. And also the two thousand semi final Olympics. Thatwas another amazing moment. When Cathy Freeman was racing. There was so many, so many cameras and and the stadium was electrifying. So those are thethings that I think are the most memorable live sporting moments that stir those amazingfeelings inside. Thanks. Bit of an interesting take their mom but I appreciatethe calm words. The State of origins again a serious run around here,but I show you this next guest won't have it. Next I we've gotBrownie. He's appeared in four episodes, so same as dad. He's firstone was the women's tennis episode where we talked about the women's tennis players ofthe two thousand and ten decade. That was episode five of the PODCAST.So let's see what Brownie has to say. So for me the number one lifesporting evant that I go to every year is the Australian Open. Forsure. I go three to five days ground pass every year and I alwayslove it. So when I was thinking about my favorite life sporting event thatI've been to, I knew that it had to be from the Australian Open. There's nothing else that I've gone to live that really compares, in myopinion, to the Australian Open every year. So when thinking about the my favoritespecific match that I've been to, even though I've been to semi finalsand I've never been to a final. been to a semi final it waspretty ordinary. I've been in Rod Laver arena, but in the first fewrounds, so the matches are usually pretty onesided. When I think about thebest live sporting event, the best atmosphere, the match that I think of isa match that I went to in the two thousand and nineteen is StralianOpen with Braudy on show caught three, which the caught where usually the Australiansplay, and it was Alex Bolt vs Gil Simon. Seems pretty random,but it was last match on in the second round. Show caught three isusually a caught where the crowds get pretty hyped up, especially at night,and it's often the last court on at night where they're silver match playing,and it was in this case with the Australian playing. We got there early, so you've got us. We got up, we secured our seats,usually they're pretty hard to come by, and watched him. He was downtwo says to one. We weren't really expecting too much of him because Gillsomeone's a much better player than Alex Bolt, always has been. And then thefourth set tie rape comes around and Alex about saved a couple of matchpoints and one the fourth set tiebreak ten eight and then came back. Wasa break up in the fifth. Gil Simone broke back. Was For alland then Alex Bolt to kill the last two games and won the match.Six, four and the five. We were there the whole time. Itwas being played on, you know, channel seven and whatever. Before allthe night match has started and it wasn't necessarily a massive spectacle. There wasn'ta hundred thousand people there, but it was just a crazy atmosphere we willreally involved in at the whole time and it was just a it was justa crazy match to see, crazy match to witness, and the fact thatit was an Australian playing really amplified the atmosphere in there and nothing even thoughI've been to some. My footy team...

...winning fight of a couple of finalsand for me the tennis is definitely number one, the Australian Open in termsof live sport for me, and that match has to be the best matchor the most exciting live match that I've ever been to. Maybe feels watchit on TV it wouldn't be up there. I probably would have forgotten about itif I was watched on TV, but just being there in the momentmade it quite special yet. So that's my number one live sporting moment thatI've been to. Interesting forty there from Brownie. Wouldn't necessarily think she'll Simonand Alex bold would be topping too many lists in any context, but veryinteresting one, bit of a bit of a unique one there. I respected. Next up we've got curtis, also known as James because his name isJames. Last name Curtis. His first episode was episode six where we reviewthe NFL draft. He's been five episodes, so let's hand it over to JamesCurtis. Grow Corker, Congrat some fifty episode. It's great achievement.It's been great to be involved in. Sure those listening love it as welland keep pumping them out and you know, who knows where I go. It'sjust great to be involved in, as I said. So I believeare doing most memorable spoiling moment. So as a Hawthorne Fan, I've beenlucky enough to witness for premierships, three of each I've been to and alsoone that we lost, unfortunately, in two thousand and twelve. And despitewhen you three P in two thousand and fifteen, my most memorable spoil momentcertainly has to be the three thousand and eight grand final. It's only eightof the Times it was pretty young. I remembered to long being absolute pairhas day for the time they'll in the peak of what there was there probablymost dominant three yees been two thousand and seven, two thousand and eight andtwo thousand and nine. And I was remember whothor had a pretty young sideas well. Not obviously that I thought that were young, but I obviouslythought that they went as a matureish Geelong. And Yeah, I just remember wewere seeing the the fourth back row of the mcj, the very godsthe the MCG and yeah, I just had never witnessed something like it.Was a packed stadium it would be. It was so loud and I rememberthe final sign going and wed one. We remember a game where we wouldrush behind throughout. My Dad was was pretty pretty on edge the whole game, to be honest and dumb. Yes, you know that Sarren going and Ijust remember the whole crowd getting up, except obviously the Geelong support, butat all. The whole thing was suppose getting up and never heard heardsuch scial loud noise and then shrum, that confetti coming down and yeah,it was something I remember forever I was. It was unbelievable, to be honest. Yeah, and I there's just so many aspects I remember that thatcompared to the other grandfather final was I just don't really remember as much,and I reckon that's just because it was my first grandfrin order I'd ever witnessed. And obviously we got up, which is great, but yeah, justparts like shank crawl, food, yelling. That's what we're talking about. Andit was just the sharing, depret, the song go on repeat. Yeah, it was just sew I standing to be to witness and selling mymost memorable moment. It was. It was a tough sort sort of toughfor game. Yeah, but the the specific moment, if you want,would definitely be when that Sarah went in the three thousand a grand final andHawthorne got up, just something I never witnessed before. Is An eight yearold and it's something that will probably live with me for a lifetime, whichis a pretty awesome. Pretty Pretty Cliche to say, but yeah, it'spretty awesome. Yeah, and so that's my my most memorable moment of witnesssender. Yeah, keep going with the potties, mate, and yeah,maybe I'll be haun soon again. A thanks man. Good form, Kurt, really good whispering there, buddy. Respectful to the family. I likeit. Next up we've got redofs. He is the second highest appeared guestbehind Pilch, with eight. So pretty good form there. From Rena wasabsolute stoward of the of the show. His first appearance was in the UfaChampions League team the decade, which was episode nine, I believe. Solet's hear what he has to say. Hey, cork, thanks for havingme on again. Congrats on the fastest shifty of your career. So Ithink my most treasured sporting moment that I've watched live. Would have to bethe World Cup final in Australia and Melbourne at the MCG. I happened towin some free tickets so we had,...

...me and my dad had some ofthe best seats in the house. And then to see Mitchell stark knock overBrendon mccullum with, what was it, the third ball of the game,was was just insane. More than that, I think it was just the waythat the crowd reacted and went off. It was just an unbelievable moment.And then to cap it all off, to see Clarkey in his final,I think was his final, Odi innings, to smash around the NewZealanders and then to walk off and have everyone standing clapping him off was justunreal, seeing as I was like my favorite cricketer growing up. So thatwas the one for me. congrats on the fifty mate. See soon.Thanks for that one, redos. Nothing cheap gag. They're about how sly, but really appreciate it. May next up we've got lock, my olderbrother. He appeared in five episodes the potty debuted in the same one asred off. So let's hear what the Big Fella has to say. Hey, guys lackland mccorkodial here. I'm the older brother of the host of thePODCAST, Hamish. He's asked me to give my greatest sporting moment that I'veseen live, and there was a few. There's a few ones that come intoit. There was JE's it was a game I think two thousand andseventeen, the Tigers knocking off the storm in the last minute. I waspretty good and have a few friends there as well. As we went outand enjoyed the night getting closer, like standing six feet from tait woods.Last season the President's Cup was pretty amazing, but I think the number one forme would be last year's state of origin in game three. We werelucky enough to attend in Sydney, just a second orige of game might attended. I think the previous one was at the MCG a couple of years ago. I wasn't a deciding game so obviously didn't have the importance of the onelast year, which I think it was one all heading into the last game, obviously, and you know it's a pretty tight game. I think Queenslandand fought back in the second half and we're up by a couple of pointsand then it was like the last couple of minutes. That really, youknow, really made it exciting and given it was in Sydney, most ofthe crowd was supporting Yourself, Wales. So you know there's coming down tothe last couple of minutes and you know it was getting pretty nervy in thecrowd given the the the blues were just a couple points behind the brons.That came down the last play. I think it was. I was likemaybe thirty seconds ago on the match forty seconds and I think Mitchell Pierce hadshifted the ball right from thirty out of their own line. Here I thinkm bid come in from Queensland to try and make a tackle on the backRos and on he's the past gone straight past him. It's ended up withTom Troy of issues drawn in the winger. Given the pass out to the wingerand the bike. Focus was sprinting down the sideline and he nearly wentout. He was just like tip doing to the sideline, really falling overand I can't I don't know any man. It's just staying. But he didand then he think he drew the fullback poinner bank threw a ball insidethe TESCO twenty is then Tesco step back inside and sprints of the remaining defendersto score in the corner and like everyone's went nuts. It's incredible, oneof the one of the greatest things I've ever seen in person. And haveeightyzero people just going off their brains as the blues wind. It's called thewhin. He tried the final second of the game. I think there's aqueens an a similar over to the ninety four series of Mark Coins try,but this was New South Wales is turn and like I couldn't believe it thewhole night. Train back to a nun's players and yeah, and just thinkingabout it now, like I she's a company. That happened was incredible.Good form. Their lock once again, state of origin, getting a real, real working over here. I can assure you that's the last time it'sgoing to be mentioned this episode. Next up with got rosive Angus row.He is appeared in four episodes. He actually made his debut in episode elevenin a Buddha's league of preview, but is more known for his AFL appearances. But let's hear what the Big Fella has to say. Did I havea good day boys. How Y all doing? So my favorite sporting momentI've been to is actually a two way tie. Could not split them.First of all, I'm going to name some honorable mentions. So first ofall, I went to the two thousand and eleven prem final between Geelong andwest coast, just because it's the best AFL game I've been to, consideringI'm a saints Fan. I didn't get to go to the grand files andO nine and ten, so that was good experience. However, it wasa pretty comfortable to long win. Also went to semi final in the AustralianOpen between Eddie Murray and Tomas Birch a few years back. It was prettycomfortable Inter Murray, but I had some very nice court side seats, sothat made it very good experience as well. Also been to a couple of lastball finishes in cricket and so on. However, my two way tie firstof all was in two thousand and eighteen to nineteen, the test seriesagainst India. It was the boxing day, Test Day too in the afternoon,so I don't know if any will...

...remember, but we got smash thatseries. We was when we didn't have Smith the water around them. Sotop order consisted of, you know, marks, Harris, are and finchin all them, however. So the day to it was the start ofthe day side with India finishing their first inning. So Pajara made a hundredand they've made pretty good score and declared. They then rolled through us for aboutnot much, about one, about two hundred from memory, and thenwe came into bowl. It just it's started off looking like another typical Indiandominance until pat commings stood up took the first wicket of Vahari, if Ithink it was fifteen roughly, and then Pajara, the man who turned upin the first innings. Patty Cummins got him out, I think second ball. was absolutely unbelievable. See that, we all thought when Paja was walkingout of our here we go, you know, another three hundred ball ton. I was about ready to leave with Jack Brauben Finn Broadband, who bailedearly, but Jack Grender and I, good made of mine, stay thereand witnessed my one of my favorite ever sporting memories. So he got thegiant for a to bull duck. We thought, well, this is awesome, because the entire mcj was filled with Australian fans will just sick and tiredof the Indian dominance in the series so far. So we got absolutely aroundhim. It felt like a hundred thousand crowd. And then what do youknow? Verak colie walks out, obviously better than any enemy to the Australianside of the time. Got Him out very cheaply as well, so hewas gone for another duck. And then Rahana, who's obviously very quality,very good cricketer, came out. Got Him out and the space of twobowls. So we took out three or four very quality bats when Patty Cumminsdid in the space of about half an hour and just the scenes were incredible. There was a hat trick ball that was nearly out actually. But yeah, considering I'm a saints Fan and I'm most of my games were had stadium, I haven't really witnessed a massive MCG eruption like I did that day.So that was absolutely awesome to finish the day off. My second favorite sportingmemory was in two thousand and thirteen round twenty three was in an mcj farmor anything like that. It was simply the last game that Saint Kilda trio, Jason Blake, Justin Cause you ski and who's a then on Stephen Milneplayed for the club. It was against fremantle. They were making finals,so they arrested their entire squad and I think we finished near the bottom ofthe ladder, but we absolutely obliterated them and it was just awesome. Cozywas my favorite player as a kid growing up, so it was good seemin his final game he came on as a substitute and he kicked for behind, his last behind. Everyone thought was a goal. So we got themassive celebration, everything, all of Eddie had just absolutely erupted. The roofwas open, which made it better. So that's probably the loudest Eddie hadas ever been in its history. To cosy keep that golden was reversed,which those booze I couldn't hear myself. Think Jason Blake as well. Awesome, lockdown, tall defender. He managed to kick a goal. He's famousfor only ever having one brownlow vote, but he was a very solid saintkilled a player, so got to see him and of course Steven Milne managedto keep I think a couple in that last game. So just to seeall those boys off and for all them to kick a goal, except Cozi, who sort of got to live it but statistically didn't. That was anabsolutely awesome day, obviously growing up seeing them in the grand finals, justgrowing up absolutely admiring them and meeting them at those kicking all that, sayingthem off like that with the massive crowd followed by an awesome win by us, was such a good memory. Argue him, I say my favorite StKilda win ever. So yeah, hopefully, if we do this again next year, hopefully it's celebrating a saint killed grand final win. Not Going toget ahead of myself, but yeah, thanks boys and go saints. Thanksfor that one, Robbie. Next up we've got Jack Broadban, also knownas broady. He first appeared in the AFL two thousand and twenty predictions episode. He's also appeared in a recent one about the golf, so he's gota total of two appearances many more to come. Let's hear what Jack broadybroadbent, what's to tell us today? Get our guys. I'm here forthe on the ball podcast, special fiftie episode and my favorite live sporting momentsthat I've been to. So I've now it down to three. I've beenvery lucky and gone to a lot of great sporting events around the world andmanly in Melbourne. I first one, being a Carlton supporter and loving myAFL Footie, is the two thousand and thirteen elimination final where Carlton came downfrom about five goals at halftime and beat...

Richmond. It was a beautiful springday at the G. There's about ninety five thousand people and I just rememberthat day being unbelievable atmosphere. Carton played unbelievably well. There was some stars, you know, with the three Amigos and Jard and Murphy and Gibbs andNick Dagon was a hero kicking four goals and it was just an electric dayat the MCG. So that was my first favorite sporting moment. My secondone would be I was fortunate enough to go to the two thousand and eighteenmen's I was open final between federal and Chilich that night. went to thatmatch. It wasn't a classic in terms of going in the all time greatmatches in Tennessee history, but it went to five sets. Got To seeRoger, my favorite player of all time, live for the first time and hewon, which was fantastic. Once again it was a high quality levelof tennis, great atmosphere inside Rod Laver Arena and it was a great night. And finally came to that. Last year, you know, I justsplit hairs between going to Wimbledon for the first time, which is of coursemost famous tennis Grand Slam on the calendar. But what just picked it for mewas going to the ICC Cricket World Cup at Lord's. It was Australiaand New Zealand playing. It was about thirty degrees, a hot London Day, and will fot enough to sit in a in a box with free foodand drink, and we also were had the pleasure of sitting next to Alanborder all day. So we watched the cricket, lots of Beer, eightlots of food and saw the OAZI's beat the Kiwi's quite comfortably. Trent Bolttook a hat tricks, so that was a real heart of the day.But Australia cruise the victory. So yeah, they're my three favorite sporting moments,as what of others? The Presidents Cup last year, lots of timesat the tennis, footy, been to the basketball, but those three standabove the rest and what will leave on in my memory. Enjoy really likethat from you there, broad Ben. Next up we've got most the farthe interesting combination of NFL expert and Pakistan cricket expert. His first appearance wasin the NFL AFC predictions episode. He's appeared into podcast Ale up. Let'shear what Moustafa rates as he's number one moment. My favorite sporting moment wouldhave to probably be the champions Trophy we want in two thousand and seventeen packson. Everyone had written us off, but I I still had hope that wouldwin. In as it happened, on won the champions trophy. We hada very good team, I think. And Yeah, I think it wasthe biggest highlight for my life is seeing packs on win something. So thenwinning the champions trophy was a big deal for me. So yeah, thanks, short and sweet from we'll see there, but we love it. Next upis Elvis Kel elvins. To be formal. He's been in one episodeonly, but we want to get him back on because he is one ofthe Funnier blokes going around. He's only appearance was in an episode where wejust talked about cricket. Really was told stories, made jokes, mainly fromcal himself. So let's see what Elvis, the musician, the musical genius,has to say. My favorite live sporting moment that I've witnessed as aGeelong Fan. This man not surprised you too much, but it's Tom Hawkinsafter the siren goal against Hawthorne. Round Nineteen, two thousand and twelve tokeep that cannot curse rolling on. And this is it was sort of beforeTom Hawkins, you know, now is considered like one of the best keyforwards in the comb but this was, you know, a lot of oppositionsupporters still didn't really read him and he got a lot of hate, especiallyfrom a few mates of my dad who were Hawthorne supporters. They always gettingstuck into him for being pretty useless and to have him, of all players, after the siren, you know, fifty five out, probably the oneof the cleanness to drop points ever kicked like that thing. I went overthe top of the goal posts from like sixty, probably like a seventy madeto drop on and I was at the game. It was pretty remarkable,pretty special memory that thanks for listening. Nice one, Elvis. Next up. We've got nos no barrens. He's made one appearance similar to cow weneed to get him back on because he is a loved member of the show. He appeared in the Manchester United team of the decade episode with Pilch.So let's hand it over to know and see what he would events he's goingto what moments he's going to talk about.

Hey, hope everyone's going well.During Corona, part of on the bowl podcast fifty episode. Being askedby Hamish to give some of my most memorable live sport moments, so I'vechosen to that really stood out to me, although there was a couple. Thefirst one was the two thousand and sixteen AFL grand final, so itwas the bulldogs against the Swan's, although I do support Essendon, so thismight be a little bit of a cop out. But only grand final everbeen to a probably any sport. So that first he's pretty big thing.But just the the atmosphere stops that occasion. Most people won't go to a GRANDFARAFL grand final in their whole life, so it was definitely pretty special andespecially got to go for a couple mates, so it was really good. I think the thing that stood out for me as well for that wasjust bulldogs winning. Finished pretty low. I think they came like seven sevenththat year, so weren't even expected to be in the grand final, letalone win it. And Yeah, just a really good game. Was Prettyclose up until probably the last fifteen minutes and this after like bulldog supports weregone, mental guys crying and just raw emotion. You couldn't help but getinvolved with it and just had massive, just really feel good kind of story. So yeah, that was my first memorable live sport moment and for mysecond one was earlier, earlier this year, going to like his game in Oura. So got to got to see Lakers versus the Knicks at their staplescenter, which was I was pretty excited for that. I was amazing.Got To see Lebron, Anthony Davis, who just to just to say thatI've seen one of the grace of the basketball plays is pretty means a lot. Definitely memorable and the they make a good spectacle of the sports over theUS. It's a big show and like they really sort of makes like amovie kind of atmosphere the actual game itself. The lake is one by a sortof Fif twenty odd points, so wasn't like a super memorable game inthat that way, I think Lebron scored like thirty and got a triple double. But yeah, it's just just to say they've been able to go toan NBA game. You know, might be the only one I ever seeagain, who knows? And it was, yeah, just really special, prettyclose to the court. Had had decent seats. So yeah, that'dbe my second one. Thanks Nos. Some two very interesting calls there,but I like both of them. Next up we've got peanuts, recent appearon the show but is wrapped up to appearance in his appearances and he's gotone coming soon. He first appeared in an fone MBA episode. But let'shear what peanut has to offer. You know, guys, hope are allwell pleasury back on the podcast for a big, special episode. Big Firethough. Big Shout to Hamish for making it this far fifty so absolute,absolute effort and shouts all the listeners. Put in the time we could.The podcast will listen, so big share out to them. Be Shout toHamish in the party. Done really well. Hopefully get a few more mentions ina few more episodes and in the future. But yeah, big shoutouts. My favorite live sporting moment I've been to bit of an odd one,littles. The first basketball game ever went to in the for the NBA andit was January seventeen, two thousand and twelve. It was the heat burstthe Spurs in Miami. I quite lucky. Dad provided a little package deal forme my sister, so we got to kind of meet the team,the Miami Boys, before the game and got to shoot a free throw beforebefore the first tipoff. So luckily I catched up and drain the free throw. So that's something I'll remember forever for sure. But yeah, again tohigh five all the boys as they run out. Lebron and Chris Bosh,we're huge. It's really cool to see them. Unfortunately, do you wadewas out, but he was still at...

...the grain the game, so itwas it was pretty cool to see them all in person. And then thegame was very interesting. Heat were down by fourteen or so at halftime,maybe one thousand five hundred and sixteen. Danny Green for the spurs actually hita hit, a half caught shot at the buzz and halftime, so thatwas pretty crazy. And then the third quarter really the heat, heat caughtwhy Lebron, lebrons was just splashing them from everywhere. The heat out schoolthe Spurs thirty nine to twelve. And the third quarter Lebron was just takenover. Big Mikey Miller, big three points, specially if he went sixfrom six for the night. So it was pretty something. American Airlines arenawas it was rocking. Lebron drop thirty three for the night. Tennessists itwas. It was pumped full stadium. Obviously Pretty Prime Miami Heat team backaround those diet those days. So I was pretty pretty crazy and it's prettycool. You get involved on the corn and stuff as well, which Ithink added to it. But yeah, it was. It was pretty lateto see probably one of my favorite sports one of all time, definitely myfavorite basketball Lebron, in person, and the way you played. Two reallyreally came out and he was he was unreal that night. So can't beatit. For me, I don't reckon bi of an odd one. Nothingto I mean crazy. Maybe not finals or anything, just a regular seasongame, but for me as pretty special in the performance at the boys pointI was pretty crazy in and I winning by twenty two or something enough tobeing down and a half time. So good game to be too. I'vegone to ripper NBA Games, but yeah, the first one, first one takesthe takes the cake for me. So yeah, congrats on the bigfifty episodes, mate.

He appeared in an episode with Brownie where we talked about sporting events wewish we were alive to see. So let's hear what mores is rating is. He's number one sporting moment. Hey, court, congrats on the fiftieth episodemade and thanks having me back on the show. My favorite sporting momentof all time would have to be the two thousand and eighteen final between Melbourneand Hawthorne. I had the flu the week before so I couldn't go tothe game against you long, but luckily they got the win over the catsand I was able to watch some live in a final for the first timeagainst hawks the week later. My favorite individual moment from that game would haveto be I was early in the fourth quarter. The hawks are kind ofamounting a bit of a comeback, but then Jakie Melksham rose one off thepack and kicks it on his left from about forty five meters out to kindof steady the ship a little bit. And the days at home and hostafter that. She's having got me on again. Cork and Cape Up withgood work, mate. Thanks for that, Mars. And to bring us home, we've got our most recent guest, fin he appeared on the pja championshipsegment of Episode Forty Eight, where we reviewed the recent golf tournament,and that's his one and only appearance, but I'm sure they will be moreto come. So let's see what Finn has to say. The event thatstood out for me was the Twenty Fifteen World Cup. We're Australia beat NewZealand and watching Mitch Star Tear through their attack was awesome to see that.That deafening sound around the MCG when mid stark took out mccollum's stump was awesometo watch, and the way that the Ozi's well maturely got through the banninginnings, not collapsing as same did a couple times, but got through theWorld Cup. So it's awesome to see them win and to be at theG as well was awesome. Thanks for that one. Fin It's the boys. We're back here again. We don't have much to say this time.We're just doing a quick little outtry. I thought it would be nice for, you know, the usual two suspects to round off this fifty episode special.
