Crowd cheers. Hey, settle, welcome back to the honorable podcast. Is Episode Fifty. We've done it, lads, raised the vast we have done it. I will be honest, I wasn't backing myself to get past episode ten, but we've got two fifty and we're going strong. We're not showing any signs flowing up. We had today joined by who else? They would only be fitting. I worked it out before. You've been on twenty one episodes. Could be wrong, my mask could be wrong, but we are joined by Christian pilcher. Welcome mate, thanks right, absolute pleasure as always. Yeah, it's a raids came to raise the boat with you. Yeah, I'm good. I'm good. How are you? Yeah, yeah, I'm very well, very excited for this. To be honest, it's been a good week with, you know, recorded a few other parties as well, but in the background I've been hurting together all these videos to make today's special episode for everyone. So I hope you enjoy it. First of all, though, before we get into it, I would just like to say a quick thank you to absolutely every everyone who's had anything to do with this, the guests, everyone. I don't think many people have said no or said like I can't do that time or whatever. Everyone has been I guess lockdown does help, but everyone has been so willing to help out. Everyone's been so excited to get on, which only makes my life easier because, you know, it'd be a bit dull if it's just me talking to myself a fifty episode straight. Anyone who's listened to any of the podcast, anyone who's followed us on Instagram, liked an instagram post, like to tweet, subscribe to the Youtube anything. I appreciate any of it. 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'd fill up my time, especially in lockdown, with something else, and this has been 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 around you. So I appreciate anyone who said anything nice about the show, anyone who's supported it in any way whatsoever. And but today's episode to celebrate the fifty special. I thought it would be quite fitting to those who are the loyal listeners those who are new. Episode one, me and our man here, Christian, we sat down and talked about our top five favorite live sporting moments of our lives. Is, so it's something that we were actually out in person and a moment is, you know, something. It's not like I 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, the end 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 been on the show so far to send me in their favorite live sporting moment and I 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 appeared first to who appeared the latest, if you know what I mean. And you know I might pop in in between a few just to introduce a few people if they haven't introduced themselves, but just quickly, because you know me and you can't be left out of this completely. What did you say to those 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 so I'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 and showdown at the Adelaide Oval, which we both witnessed live. Yeah, yeah, a great moment. Love that. And then mine was a bit of a pod. I think. I can't. I don't even know the year by heart. I think it was the two thousand and twelve a league grand final, the Brisbane Ror, famous wall, famous for SOC fans, a league fans in particular, but one of the great soccer matches of all time. They, you know, came back from to kneel down in the last ten minutes of extra time and then one on penalties. So that was my moment. The Brisbane rule, the mighty raw. Can't lie. I haven't watched 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 was in episode three. You were in the first two episodes. But before you getting too young, C Macca, I just need to thank you pilch. Obviously I thank everyone equally, but I think you deserve a bit of an extra 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 need to get an episode out, or just anything. You've helped me like, you know, pick titles, pick thumbnails for the Youtube. You've made me like think of ideas and you've always been there the whole way, supporting it. And, as I said before, twenty one episodes, you've almost been in half of them. So this point you basically cohost. But yeah, I really appreciate that, mate. So thanks, pilch. No, roys, mate spent. Always a pleasure to get on the show and I'm honored to 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, like episode 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 I worked it out the other months. Definitely not weird of me to do. I think it's like December, the fourteen or something. So episode hundred, so look out for that one. Got Okay and put a new calendars. But yeah, so thanks a lot, pillage. Once again, thanks to everyone 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 to anyone 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's podcast. 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 question is, what is my favorite live sporting moment of the decade? So I would probably say I have a tie for to so my first one was we went to Sydney last year to watch game three state of origin. So it was 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 was also was a very special my more all dressed up in blue. It was the 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 and rl game I've ever seen in my life. Blues was smashing it, we were crushing the game and then Queensland came back and we won the game within the last twenty seconds, which is just unheard of, you know. And it was just the crowd going crazy because we were also near a blue supporters so it was just the crowd was just really into the game and it was just everyone was screaming. I lost my voice the next day. It was honestly one of the CRAZIEST AND LL Games I've been to and it was great to 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 my second 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 went to Liverpool versus wolves and the game already started off amazing the day already started off amazingly because my team, Chelsea, one like twenty minutes prior because it was 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 like on the TV or you watch the match highlights, but you never see it in person and it's just just crazy, like when the fans saying never walk alone. The energy in that room. Everyone was holding up their red scarfs. Who was I was just stunned by the Camaraderie in that stadium and I think that's what really makes these two sporting moments the best of the decade because of the energy in that stadium, like the Blues Energy and the Liverpool Energy was just crazy. So those are my life sporting events. Thanks for that one, Campbell. Next up is phraser, my dad, phrase mccorcadale. He has been in four episodes of the PODCAST and he's first appearance was in episode for the my parents episode. So let's see what he has to say. Congratulations, a missing your fifty podcast is a fifties put podcast or fifty anniversary? I'm not sure, but...

...well done. It's been some riveting conversations, some good, some bad, some ugly, but at least you having a crack and that's a good thing. From my well, question that I've been 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 of sport and lots of exciting things and it's one of those things that you're more you think about it, the more you remember the good things and the dangerous poses relativity. By that I mean you remember myst more recent things. So if you look at the last twelve months, you know the two things that stand out is the state of origin, the climactic state state of origin, and then, of course, the soccer matches that we saw, football matches we saw in England when we were over there for Christmas, and they really do, you know, they are the stop. But the thing you think to yourself is, is that Itage, cause that's more recent. It's interesting that football should be in there because most of the sporting things that I've watched is dominated by cricket and Rugby League, because that's my two passions as a sporting person, cricket more in a cricket I've seen lots of things. You know, 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 will play together. We saw Michael Mitchell Johnson just tear apart England on that last day in the first test. Went in the recent actions, or not recent, but two thousand and twelve thirteen, two thousand and thirteen fourteen ashes which set up that summer. So there's been some really good cricket events and I'm sure the more I think about it more or come back, probably the highlight for me for cricket is Jeff Thompson versus the West indies back in on UN nine hundred and seventy six when he absolutely just tore through the West indies and I never ever seen anything like that before. So you see lots of individual great things, but I think crickets also an interesting one because it's more of a 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 a much faster rate and rugby league so you remember more. Probably when I now look back, there's I mean obviously following a team like Balmaine and then West Tigers. The good times a few and far between, but when they have good times it is good times. And probably the game that stands out and the live event that I really treasure the most is was the semi final against St George and the two thousand and five premiership rain. I like that game while I was there, whereas the grand final, we didn't go, but I was think the grand finals a bit more of an anti climate compared to the 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 was a pure tribal game, like Saint George and at West Tigers. Half the crowd was in orange and half the crowd was in white. So it really was what everyone talks about when you see that tribalism, and it was just a magical night and I think you know that I had you know, I was there with Nick, I was there with Tommy Moreen, Michael Cameron was there with his girlfriend somewhere else in the crowd, and then of course you had Hamish, you were there and lock them was there and hey, me issue running you put five years old, and then nick was there. So it was, you know, a true family event. And it was a one of those magical nights where things huge, crowd huge, huge impact. Then, of course, Benjie Marshall scored a try very early in the match where he just ran right around Mark Gasnier and that that just set up the tone 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 where St 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 and things were starting to get all this going to get a bit edgy and during that period the school board or the timer on the school board broke and so you had no idea really how long was left in the game and you were trying to guess. But then there was a period where the Tigers got a bit big enough lead and with five minutes to go you knew they were going to go the grand final and and I remember the buzz in the crowd as people 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 crowd had success was in one thousand nine hundred and eighty nine. You could actually feel the enthusiasm and that just use buzz of excitement as people know that they're going to make it, and I think that's what I really enjoyed was that last 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 seat and 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 got autographs and it was just a great night and, like I said, I was 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. So that that by far away is my best sporting memory, the one that would come pretty close to it now, and, as I said, I do worry that this is more recent so it's in your head. Was the day 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 just thought that was just a it was hard to describe and you know I then was so lucky to be there and feel it and you could only imagine what it must be like when there's a big, big game on. I enjoyed that and 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 be now my number two. The state of origin obviously, would be in that top three. So it's quite interesting the two of my top two of my top 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 think it 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 a support 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 and it was just fantastic. So that's it, Amish, and as I said at the beginning, well done on all your podcasts and I look forward to being a more important part of the podcast going forward, because when I'm on it 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 in three episodes of the PODCAST, similarly debuted as dad did, in the my parents episode, episode four of the Potty. So let's hear what she has to say. Hi, I'm the coal hoishes mum. First off, I'd like to congratulate Hamish. I'm reaching his fifty podcast. The dedication that I've seen over this time of him, you know, trying to come up with great eyed ideas that were interesting and that we engage the people that he had on his podcast, as well as his audience and how he included family and friends. It's been a real testament to his dedication and strive to always deliver something that's all of a good standard. So congratulations, Hamish. When I was trying to think of my most favorite live sporting event, I did come up with a few things at first, and then I sort of had a light bolb moment one night. I know that doesn't happen very often, but I actually think I'm not going to. I'm actually I'm actually attacking this a different way. I actually think my most favorite live sporting moment is that is those that leave you with a tear in your eye, that you remember that feeling 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, the next month, the next year, the...

...next decade. I think the most favorite sporting live moments are those that bring people together and allow people to share memories 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 when it leaves you with those feelings, just leaves you that with those feelings and it 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 these examples that that I'm talking about would be the two thousand and nineteen state of origin 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 whole family 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. That was another amazing moment. When Cathy Freeman was racing. There was so many, so many cameras and and the stadium was electrifying. So those are the things that I think are the most memorable live sporting moments that stir those amazing feelings inside. Thanks. Bit of an interesting take their mom but I appreciate the 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 got Brownie. He's appeared in four episodes, so same as dad. He's first one was the women's tennis episode where we talked about the women's tennis players of the 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 life sporting evant that I go to every year is the Australian Open. For sure. I go three to five days ground pass every year and I always love it. So when I was thinking about my favorite life sporting event that I'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 my opinion, to the Australian Open every year. So when thinking about the my favorite specific match that I've been to, even though I've been to semi finals and I've never been to a final. been to a semi final it was pretty ordinary. I've been in Rod Laver arena, but in the first few rounds, so the matches are usually pretty onesided. When I think about the best live sporting event, the best atmosphere, the match that I think of is a match that I went to in the two thousand and nineteen is Stralian Open with Braudy on show caught three, which the caught where usually the Australians play, and it was Alex Bolt vs Gil Simon. Seems pretty random, but it was last match on in the second round. Show caught three is usually 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 down two says to one. We weren't really expecting too much of him because Gill someone's a much better player than Alex Bolt, always has been. And then the fourth set tie rape comes around and Alex about saved a couple of match points and one the fourth set tiebreak ten eight and then came back. Was a break up in the fifth. Gil Simone broke back. Was For all and then Alex Bolt to kill the last two games and won the match. Six, four and the five. We were there the whole time. It was being played on, you know, channel seven and whatever. Before all the night match has started and it wasn't necessarily a massive spectacle. There wasn't a hundred thousand people there, but it was just a crazy atmosphere we will really involved in at the whole time and it was just a it was just a crazy match to see, crazy match to witness, and the fact that it was an Australian playing really amplified the atmosphere in there and nothing even though I've been to some. My footy team...

...winning fight of a couple of finals and for me the tennis is definitely number one, the Australian Open in terms of live sport for me, and that match has to be the best match or the most exciting live match that I've ever been to. Maybe feels watch it on TV it wouldn't be up there. I probably would have forgotten about it if I was watched on TV, but just being there in the moment made it quite special yet. So that's my number one live sporting moment that I've been to. Interesting forty there from Brownie. Wouldn't necessarily think she'll Simon and Alex bold would be topping too many lists in any context, but very interesting 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 is James. Last name Curtis. His first episode was episode six where we review the NFL draft. He's been five episodes, so let's hand it over to James Curtis. Grow Corker, Congrat some fifty episode. It's great achievement. It's been great to be involved in. Sure those listening love it as well and keep pumping them out and you know, who knows where I go. It's just great to be involved in, as I said. So I believe are doing most memorable spoiling moment. So as a Hawthorne Fan, I've been lucky enough to witness for premierships, three of each I've been to and also one that we lost, unfortunately, in two thousand and twelve. And despite when you three P in two thousand and fifteen, my most memorable spoil moment certainly has to be the three thousand and eight grand final. It's only eight of the Times it was pretty young. I remembered to long being absolute pair has day for the time they'll in the peak of what there was there probably most dominant three yees been two thousand and seven, two thousand and eight and two thousand and nine. And I was remember whothor had a pretty young side as well. Not obviously that I thought that were young, but I obviously thought that they went as a matureish Geelong. And Yeah, I just remember we were seeing the the fourth back row of the mcj, the very gods the 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 remember the final sign going and wed one. We remember a game where we would rush 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 I just remember the whole crowd getting up, except obviously the Geelong support, but at all. The whole thing was suppose getting up and never heard heard such 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 that compared 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, just parts like shank crawl, food, yelling. That's what we're talking about. And it was just the sharing, depret, the song go on repeat. Yeah, it was just sew I standing to be to witness and selling my most memorable moment. It was. It was a tough sort sort of tough for game. Yeah, but the the specific moment, if you want, would definitely be when that Sarah went in the three thousand a grand final and Hawthorne got up, just something I never witnessed before. Is An eight year old and it's something that will probably live with me for a lifetime, which is a pretty awesome. Pretty Pretty Cliche to say, but yeah, it's pretty awesome. Yeah, and so that's my my most memorable moment of witness sender. 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 like it. Next up we've got redofs. He is the second highest appeared guest behind Pilch, with eight. So pretty good form there. From Rena was absolute stoward of the of the show. His first appearance was in the Ufa Champions League team the decade, which was episode nine, I believe. So let's hear what he has to say. Hey, cork, thanks for having me on again. Congrats on the fastest shifty of your career. So I think my most treasured sporting moment that I've watched live. Would have to be the World Cup final in Australia and Melbourne at the MCG. I happened to win some free tickets so we had,...

...me and my dad had some of the best seats in the house. And then to see Mitchell stark knock over Brendon mccullum with, what was it, the third ball of the game, was was just insane. More than that, I think it was just the way that 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 New Zealanders and then to walk off and have everyone standing clapping him off was just unreal, seeing as I was like my favorite cricketer growing up. So that was 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 older brother. He appeared in five episodes the potty debuted in the same one as red 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 the PODCAST, Hamish. He's asked me to give my greatest sporting moment that I've seen live, and there was a few. There's a few ones that come into it. There was JE's it was a game I think two thousand and seventeen, the Tigers knocking off the storm in the last minute. I was pretty good and have a few friends there as well. As we went out and 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 for me would be last year's state of origin in game three. We were lucky 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 one last 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 Queensland and fought back in the second half and we're up by a couple of points and then it was like the last couple of minutes. That really, you know, really made it exciting and given it was in Sydney, most of the crowd was supporting Yourself, Wales. So you know there's coming down to the last couple of minutes and you know it was getting pretty nervy in the crowd 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 like maybe thirty seconds ago on the match forty seconds and I think Mitchell Pierce had shifted the ball right from thirty out of their own line. Here I think m bid come in from Queensland to try and make a tackle on the back Ros and on he's the past gone straight past him. It's ended up with Tom Troy of issues drawn in the winger. Given the pass out to the winger and the bike. Focus was sprinting down the sideline and he nearly went out. He was just like tip doing to the sideline, really falling over and I can't I don't know any man. It's just staying. But he did and then he think he drew the fullback poinner bank threw a ball inside the TESCO twenty is then Tesco step back inside and sprints of the remaining defenders to score in the corner and like everyone's went nuts. It's incredible, one of the one of the greatest things I've ever seen in person. And have eightyzero people just going off their brains as the blues wind. It's called the whin. He tried the final second of the game. I think there's a queens 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 the whole night. Train back to a nun's players and yeah, and just thinking about 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's going 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 eleven in 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 have a good day boys. How Y all doing? So my favorite sporting moment I'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 of all, I went to the two thousand and eleven prem final between Geelong and west coast, just because it's the best AFL game I've been to, considering I'm a saints Fan. I didn't get to go to the grand files and O nine and ten, so that was good experience. However, it was a pretty comfortable to long win. Also went to semi final in the Australian Open between Eddie Murray and Tomas Birch a few years back. It was pretty comfortable Inter Murray, but I had some very nice court side seats, so that made it very good experience as well. Also been to a couple of last ball finishes in cricket and so on. However, my two way tie first of all was in two thousand and eighteen to nineteen, the test series against 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 that series. We was when we didn't have Smith the water around them. So top order consisted of, you know, marks, Harris, are and finch in all them, however. So the day to it was the start of the day side with India finishing their first inning. So Pajara made a hundred and they've made pretty good score and declared. They then rolled through us for about not much, about one, about two hundred from memory, and then we came into bowl. It just it's started off looking like another typical Indian dominance until pat commings stood up took the first wicket of Vahari, if I think it was fifteen roughly, and then Pajara, the man who turned up in the first innings. Patty Cummins got him out, I think second ball. was absolutely unbelievable. See that, we all thought when Paja was walking out of our here we go, you know, another three hundred ball ton. I was about ready to leave with Jack Brauben Finn Broadband, who bailed early, but Jack Grender and I, good made of mine, stay there and witnessed my one of my favorite ever sporting memories. So he got the giant for a to bull duck. We thought, well, this is awesome, because the entire mcj was filled with Australian fans will just sick and tired of the Indian dominance in the series so far. So we got absolutely around him. It felt like a hundred thousand crowd. And then what do you know? Verak colie walks out, obviously better than any enemy to the Australian side of the time. Got Him out very cheaply as well, so he was gone for another duck. And then Rahana, who's obviously very quality, very good cricketer, came out. Got Him out and the space of two bowls. So we took out three or four very quality bats when Patty Cummins did 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 sporting memory was in two thousand and thirteen round twenty three was in an mcj farm or 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 Milne played 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 of the ladder, but we absolutely obliterated them and it was just awesome. Cozy was my favorite player as a kid growing up, so it was good seem in 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 the massive celebration, everything, all of Eddie had just absolutely erupted. The roof was open, which made it better. So that's probably the loudest Eddie had as 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 famous for only ever having one brownlow vote, but he was a very solid saint killed a player, so got to see him and of course Steven Milne managed to keep I think a couple in that last game. So just to see all 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 an absolutely awesome day, obviously growing up seeing them in the grand finals, just growing up absolutely admiring them and meeting them at those kicking all that, saying them 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 St Kilda win ever. So yeah, hopefully, if we do this again next year, hopefully it's celebrating a saint killed grand final win. Not Going to get ahead of myself, but yeah, thanks boys and go saints. Thanks for that one, Robbie. Next up we've got Jack Broadban, also known as 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 got a total of two appearances many more to come. Let's hear what Jack broady broadbent, what's to tell us today? Get our guys. I'm here for the on the ball podcast, special fiftie episode and my favorite live sporting moments that I've been to. So I've now it down to three. I've been very lucky and gone to a lot of great sporting events around the world and manly in Melbourne. I first one, being a Carlton supporter and loving my AFL Footie, is the two thousand and thirteen elimination final where Carlton came down from about five goals at halftime and beat...

Richmond. It was a beautiful spring day at the G. There's about ninety five thousand people and I just remember that day being unbelievable atmosphere. Carton played unbelievably well. There was some stars, you know, with the three Amigos and Jard and Murphy and Gibbs and Nick Dagon was a hero kicking four goals and it was just an electric day at the MCG. So that was my first favorite sporting moment. My second one would be I was fortunate enough to go to the two thousand and eighteen men's I was open final between federal and Chilich that night. went to that match. It wasn't a classic in terms of going in the all time great matches in Tennessee history, but it went to five sets. Got To see Roger, my favorite player of all time, live for the first time and he won, which was fantastic. Once again it was a high quality level of tennis, great atmosphere inside Rod Laver Arena and it was a great night. And finally came to that. Last year, you know, I just split hairs between going to Wimbledon for the first time, which is of course most famous tennis Grand Slam on the calendar. But what just picked it for me was going to the ICC Cricket World Cup at Lord's. It was Australia and 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 food and drink, and we also were had the pleasure of sitting next to Alan border all day. So we watched the cricket, lots of Beer, eight lots of food and saw the OAZI's beat the Kiwi's quite comfortably. Trent Bolt took 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 times at the tennis, footy, been to the basketball, but those three stand above the rest and what will leave on in my memory. Enjoy really like that from you there, broad Ben. Next up we've got most the far the interesting combination of NFL expert and Pakistan cricket expert. His first appearance was in the NFL AFC predictions episode. He's appeared into podcast Ale up. Let's hear what Moustafa rates as he's number one moment. My favorite sporting moment would have 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 would win. In as it happened, on won the champions trophy. We had a very good team, I think. And Yeah, I think it was the biggest highlight for my life is seeing packs on win something. So then winning 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 up is Elvis Kel elvins. To be formal. He's been in one episode only, but we want to get him back on because he is one of the Funnier blokes going around. He's only appearance was in an episode where we just talked about cricket. Really was told stories, made jokes, mainly from cal 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 a Geelong Fan. This man not surprised you too much, but it's Tom Hawkins after the siren goal against Hawthorne. Round Nineteen, two thousand and twelve to keep that cannot curse rolling on. And this is it was sort of before Tom Hawkins, you know, now is considered like one of the best key forwards in the comb but this was, you know, a lot of opposition supporters still didn't really read him and he got a lot of hate, especially from a few mates of my dad who were Hawthorne supporters. They always getting stuck into him for being pretty useless and to have him, of all players, after the siren, you know, fifty five out, probably the one of the cleanness to drop points ever kicked like that thing. I went over the top of the goal posts from like sixty, probably like a seventy made to 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 we need 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 going to 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 asked by Hamish to give some of my most memorable live sport moments, so I've chosen to that really stood out to me, although there was a couple. The first one was the two thousand and sixteen AFL grand final, so it was the bulldogs against the Swan's, although I do support Essendon, so this might be a little bit of a cop out. But only grand final ever been 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 GRANDFAR AFL grand final in their whole life, so it was definitely pretty special and especially 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 was just bulldogs winning. Finished pretty low. I think they came like seven seventh that year, so weren't even expected to be in the grand final, let alone win it. And Yeah, just a really good game. Was Pretty close up until probably the last fifteen minutes and this after like bulldog supports were gone, mental guys crying and just raw emotion. You couldn't help but get involved 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 my second 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 staples center, which was I was pretty excited for that. I was amazing. Got To see Lebron, Anthony Davis, who just to just to say that I'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 the US. It's a big show and like they really sort of makes like a movie kind of atmosphere the actual game itself. The lake is one by a sort of Fif twenty odd points, so wasn't like a super memorable game in that 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 to an NBA game. You know, might be the only one I ever see again, who knows? And it was, yeah, just really special, pretty close to the court. Had had decent seats. So yeah, that'd be my second one. Thanks Nos. Some two very interesting calls there, but I like both of them. Next up we've got peanuts, recent appear on the show but is wrapped up to appearance in his appearances and he's got one coming soon. He first appeared in an fone MBA episode. But let's hear what peanut has to offer. You know, guys, hope are all well pleasury back on the podcast for a big, special episode. Big Fire though. 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 to Hamish in the party. Done really well. Hopefully get a few more mentions in a 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 and it was January seventeen, two thousand and twelve. It was the heat burst the Spurs in Miami. I quite lucky. Dad provided a little package deal for me my sister, so we got to kind of meet the team, the Miami Boys, before the game and got to shoot a free throw before before 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 to high 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 wade was out, but he was still at...

...the grain the game, so it was it was pretty cool to see them all in person. And then the game 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 hit a hit, a half caught shot at the buzz and halftime, so that was pretty crazy. And then the third quarter really the heat, heat caught why Lebron, lebrons was just splashing them from everywhere. The heat out school the Spurs thirty nine to twelve. And the third quarter Lebron was just taken over. Big Mikey Miller, big three points, specially if he went six from six for the night. So it was pretty something. American Airlines arena was it was rocking. Lebron drop thirty three for the night. Tennessists it was. It was pumped full stadium. Obviously Pretty Prime Miami Heat team back around those diet those days. So I was pretty pretty crazy and it's pretty cool. You get involved on the corn and stuff as well, which I think added to it. But yeah, it was. It was pretty late to see probably one of my favorite sports one of all time, definitely my favorite basketball Lebron, in person, and the way you played. Two really really came out and he was he was unreal that night. So can't beat it. For me, I don't reckon bi of an odd one. Nothing to I mean crazy. Maybe not finals or anything, just a regular season game, but for me as pretty special in the performance at the boys point I was pretty crazy in and I winning by twenty two or something enough to being down and a half time. So good game to be too. I've gone to ripper NBA Games, but yeah, the first one, first one takes the takes the cake for me. So yeah, congrats on the big fifty episodes, mate. Hope you hope you're doing well and thanks for listening. Everyone keep giving you our attention to the PODCAST is producing of quality content every week. So thanks, Cork, and hopefully I'll see you soon for another episode. But the this is Pein up, so I'm now. Thanks for that one, peanut. Very kind of you, mate. I didn't formally introduce you. Was Alexander Ben well, but I didn't feel like at you peanuts. What you're known as isn't it, but thanks for those kind words. Next up we've got Tom Morris males. He's appeared in one episode. He appeared in an episode with Brownie where we talked about sporting events we wish 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 episode made and thanks having me back on the show. My favorite sporting moment of all time would have to be the two thousand and eighteen final between Melbourne and Hawthorne. I had the flu the week before so I couldn't go to the game against you long, but luckily they got the win over the cats and I was able to watch some live in a final for the first time against hawks the week later. My favorite individual moment from that game would have to be I was early in the fourth quarter. The hawks are kind of amounting a bit of a comeback, but then Jakie Melksham rose one off the pack and kicks it on his left from about forty five meters out to kind of steady the ship a little bit. And the days at home and host after that. She's having got me on again. Cork and Cape Up with good work, mate. Thanks for that, Mars. And to bring us home, we've got our most recent guest, fin he appeared on the pja championship segment 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 more to come. So let's see what Finn has to say. The event that stood out for me was the Twenty Fifteen World Cup. We're Australia beat New Zealand 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 awesome to watch, and the way that the Ozi's well maturely got through the banning innings, not collapsing as same did a couple times, but got through the World Cup. So it's awesome to see them win and to be at the G 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. I might lie at this point. We're recording this on the Thursday. I haven't at this podcast, so this could have ended twenty minute episode. It could have been two hours. I actually don't know how long it is once I get all the videos together, but I appreciate every single one of the guests for sending in their videos. Much appreciated, and also thanks for them for appearing on the show. Yeah, once again, as I said in the INTRO. Just a huge thanks to everyone who's helped me out with this. I'm really enjoying as one of the, like my favorite projects I've ever done. Ever so much fun. Love talking about support. But in saying this, we've made a big who hir about this fifty. We will raise the bout once again. But it's...

...still doesn't finish here. We've got episodes planned, I don't know, four months on end. So we're going to keep producing content, three a week for this foreseeable future. And Yeah, thanks once again, pilled, for joining me today. I know we are only had a bit of a short gig today, didn't we? Not our usual hour of talking rubbish, but I didn't mind it. Just a little quick out, intro, outro, followed by Fort Session. But Um, I appreciate everything you've done for the podcast. I appreciate what everyone's done for the podcast and if you've got to this point, congratulations. It's very impressive that you've listened this far. And Yeah, looking forward to the next fifty, hopefully. You know, we don't lose concentration. Sometimes when you raise the bat you get a bit carried away with yourself. You're happy that there's going to be a fifty on my cricket and then all of a sudden you're out for fifty four and you face two hundred balls and you've flip the team down. But let's try and push on, let's make this the big one, let's make it count. We don't want any sprays from Duncan bully, as you used to spray lock for getting out for, you know, between thirty and sixty. So let's make this one count, let's not be English cricketers and let's turn up, baby. I'm looking forward to this next fifty and I'm looking forward to, you know, filming more podcast for you guys to listen to and Pilch to be a part of. But yeah, let's go place some Fort See you guys. Cheers, mate,.
