ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Hamish is joined by old guest of the show Josh Brown and new guest Tom Morris to discuss which sporting events they wish they were alive for. The boys go through their top 4 events whilst telling interesting stories and cracking funny jokes.

Hewelcome back to the honoballpotCASIS's episode, forty two of the show, and it always feels like I'm joined bytwo new guests, but Bronnie you were on very early. SO WELCOME BACK! Thank you!HAPP! You be back yeah wh when you were on. Was it like episode, fifteen orsomething it was like? It was like episode, five M, okay, yeah early, dofo, tennis and then We'e got a actual new gest. He sent in a little cameomade a cameo appearance in one of the footy episodes as a Melbourne Fan, butwe've got to Morris welcome ate. She is called good to be here good to make theshow Dabu Yeah it's a beautiful day. Actually I don't know there's Somehongin the air right now I' feeling good. I don't know what it is. Maybe it'slooking at your Murrymos yeah got me up and about H A couple into the esirtscoming along gicely I like well horse can growmor overnight, so I don't thinkwe need to Ha thatone M, but yeah. So today I'm actually exited for thistopic. I don't know I don't know who made me think of it or anything, but we're doing things th. Well, sport, notthings sporting events that you wish youre alive for or like I know, one ofmine I was alive for, but I wasn't really, you know paying attention. Iwasn't. I wasn't hi in Richmond at the POB watching it with the boy on I wasin in the NAPPIES, so Um yeah, that's Pretty Much Hal we're doing. We we'vegot a top four each, so we're just going to roll through those and you hato see see what comes of it yeah. So it's this was not actuallymeant to be an episode for like three weeks, but we managed to get all thepieces together bit faster than I was expecting so here we are an episode,forty two! So who wants to kick US o? Or can westart with UMOS WE'LL? Let debuton go first? What in number four ypsoundsgood to me ine glad he said t he could be alive for these because technicallyI was seven years old. Oh seven days old, when this h ams or the catyframemen gold medal at the THR thousand Olympics, Um Yep, sorry, N Mon as well Soygo, EO Bo. I guess we can all NT,then Yeh. So I've got a bit of a new bound appreciation in love for thesport of running I'm a bit addicted at the moment, so yeah and iways reckon y sport ingeneral, um and even bigger than Spor, like average Aa Col chabing accepted inlike Australia, imarcin. That was a pubial Marmen, because she she also litthe flame at the Games, which was a little bit controversial at the time because, prior to the Olympics, no onereally knew who she was, and I thinking ill hang on a minute while they gettinghead a lot of fime. But then she backed it up and won the four hundred in thatpretty iconic certai that she will so yeah. That absolutely would have to bein my top foll, even though I was alive for it technically, Brannie werewar was it in Yotl. Thatwas at my number one wel. I Haven' put him in orer so that Wul E,my number one n I've just got you knowthat was my number two. So I was remember one. I didn't actuallyknow that I was alie for that. But apparently I was 'cause, I'm B olderthan Noumos, but I've watched that video on you tubemany times, Sommi say of her winning in that pact: Um, an Ed stadium in Sydneyand everyone's just going crazy, and she you can tell that she's, just like so like overwhelmed when it happens,like it's just like an incredible...

...moment that I watch like. But once amonth I must say on you tub 'cause, just the best uge wish. If you werewatching it, live at the time and didn't actually know that she won whenyou were watching it, that ut swould have been the coolestmormatever, especially the home Olympics, likethat's crazy, yeah, its just there's, there's a few of mine that actuallylike this, but it's just like. I want to go back to see what it was like.'cause I've heard all these stories from mum and Dad 'cause. They wereInsedin at the time and they actually went to a few of the events of theOlympics, but yeah. I just think it would havebeen so crazy because the sport like athletics, it's not really like peopleget around the hunter me to sprint every Olympics, but apart from that, noone really gets around it, especially in between the Olympics. So to see likea country united over a four hundred meter race, I think it would have beenpretty interesting to watch and yeah. I was talking to mom last night about it.I was like 'cause. I was looking at her metal statsand yeah, the re obviouslygreat, like to in a gold metal t the Olympics. She did well the COMWEALTHGames and a couple of the world chance, but I was like wise, like Alzac, isSally Piecin, comparable to her and Mom Double Lik da, not even close. LikeCathy Fremean was such a bigger star after the two thousand race, where,even though salad persons like acudly, be more successful in her career, soyeah, I s think it would have been really interesting to watch. What wasthe raison behind the body suit? Ioyeah, I'm not sure just aerodynamics,or was it actually like a I'm, not sure yeah ont think she wore him for, likethe hates and the the faneer was leading out to the actual foial, but ye H, I'm not sure where that camefrom yeah. So I know she had she wan silver Atlanta. So there was a bit of likeexpectation of her going into it, but I'm pretty sure between Olympics. Shemight have had a couple of injuries and I think she actually took like a yearoff or something in nineteen. Ninety Eight! So I'm pretty impressive to winthat th. I was watching it last night. Actually, the four hundred meters, Ithink, did you do four hundred mots yeah to eight hundreds, yeah you're,both athletes, you too um but yeah. I I just can't handle thefour hundred like it's like a ninety percent sprinting the whole way like Idon't get, how they do it yeah. My tank is one fifty Max, I think, it'even ahundred, an rateaonorlike. She actually looks like she's about to fal over halfthe time. 'cause she's, like just taking such long strides at such agreat pace for so it's like by there by like thats three hundred Bock, it lookslike she's getting a bit Nacken and who was going to hit the deck Beah, as shesaid, Brownie that moment at the end, like the crowd's just going off like itlooks like a socker crowd or something like people, 've got their tops offlike Wa ining around and yeah. She just like hit the deck you could kind oftell in her face. She didn't really couldn't really comprehend what Sheh djust achieved in that moment, but yeah that would have been pretty special to to observe. I actually saw her theother year at Southland, Om, Fo Yeah. She lives around this area nowadays, Ov. I know it as well. The first heavenmetal I won in running was presented by yeah, Cathy fraymon Fra, H, yeah athletics is a tough sport to bein Erican ecause like Shewell. Obviously she want to go andMeit so she's, one of the best outt like in her era, for that distance, butYoure, just like not even a meg a star really like it's just once. Every foEERYFOR O s y recognition, Ian y am Boo. Somone Frangis, like that, unless you repetitively do it. If you just do it, one off like evensomone like a Semon biles is already kind of gone by the wayside, and theaverage person probably wouldn't know who she is, despite the fact that shewon like six gold medals or whatever, and one Olympics like the Olympics asjust a strange phenomenon. Um Moving into my number four...

...mine's a bit more. My top three are alllike just general things, but my number foll's, a personal one, so the WestTiger's actually on the premieship in two thousand and five. So I was oldlike I could walk, but I was only four years of Ol Age. I don't remember. Iremember like the preliminary final 'cause, Iwas there, but I don't remember the actual game. I just remember my afterthe game. My cousin was like you know those Thundersti Yeah. My cousin waslike smacking people over the head, like dragons fans with thethundersticks weird. I don't know why that's y ter, rebut yeah so we're likea pretty bad club, similar to Yourtnmo the oldmelbourne demons sinlar to sitKudo all kind of in the same boat, Um Yeah, just haven't, had much success atall. We were. It was actually two clubs merged intoone in two thousand and since then, we've made the finals three times sothree, three and twenty years n we so we finished in, like fifth or somehing,an two thousand and five and with five rounts to go, we went actually in thetop eight. So it was like a bit of a Cindarella story and we were justknowing for like playing really exciting foody and we, like man play,was like this twenty year old, new Zealandr, and he was like doing allthis crazy stuff, like fli passes behind his back just stuff like that.So I wish I was there to see that 'cause. You never really know well, asMelbourne demons fans would know. You never really know when the nextprimiership's going to come. You' probably underestimate how long theweight might be so be ifty es yeah exactly so. That's why I wish I wasthere, but that was just a personal one for me, but what's your number forBrownie or if you don't have the rainkpots, so minofor was anothermoment from the Sne Olympics and it was the four by one hundred mad of FrestyeRelai, where Australia, like the? U S, I'm pretty shord one like eight nine ten, something like that ina row of that exvan. They domnated that event. They woele just expect it to winthat event again and then Australia got the world record. It was like neck andneck. All the other countries are out of it: NECKANDNICK, Australia,Australia! U S the whole way. Enn thought was like half a lengthbehind with like twenty five meters to go and Maage to get the job done andget the world record, and that just would have been. It's not a moment thatI've like thought about that much. I haven't watched it as much as the Cathiframe, an one, but it just. I know that I'm a big Olympics fan, like I getaround the Olypics a lot when it's on and that just would have been the mostincredible thing to be watching live when we're like half a length behindwith FIF twenty five minutes ago against the? U S of anyone which, like,of course, wo want a beat, especially and swimming with us in them Ito a bigrivalry that would have been an incredible moment for that world recordand that victory the very last second in the Ho Olympics as well. Yeah.That's definitely up there, there's quite a few murments in tnot Olympicsithink yeah that I wish I was there for. Then there was like there was beefbetween the teams, which I don't think's, that common in a SI really'cause like. I know one of the American swimmers he came out and famously said,we're going to smash them like guitars and then the Olses when they won. Theywere like doing the EG guitar thing, taking the piece out of win so bit abit of swimming beef, probably the last swimming beef until Sunyang,an the boys was bozz Ur swimmer as well asAranas. Did you have you watched that moment? Um Yeah. I've definitelywatched the race a few times yet, but I hadn't didn't, have an O, mytk for I v kind of merved On for my thin Das, but yeah o definitely a moment toremember and I'm sure. If I was alive at the time, I absolutely would haveBene Tuny into it, especially at the Home Olympics. Itwould have been a pretty special arment for everyon there having the wholecrowd behind you and then yeah. You come from a couple of boyo likes, Ohalf Abod life behind with twenty five Figar that would have been...

...pretty exciting stuff to watch yeah. Idon't know what it is about the relays. I actually love the reallays, probablymore than the individual events in birth, athletics and Swimming Iegrowming about it's just something about it's kind oflike a megatame, almost like, like, especially when Jamaica wee had thefull by one hundred team, like they had three guys from the one hundred meefinal like altogether yeah there something I love about the relays andthen, like obviously like the Campbell sisters more recent times, they'veprovided some good moments in the reallays, not so much in the individualevents, but Um less say that about the Veli said aboutthat Meder for them, Um, so yeah Moss. What what's your thirdone or the next one you wanti'll put them in order from Noworra, I think, being a days fan. I just hadto put this in so the the nineteen sixty four permitr elthe last on thedays, tasted, the ultimate ecess on a football field. I couldn't tell you whocouldn't name a play up for the days uing that year couldn't tell you who Iplayed against, but yeah, just just D's, following O,pretty pretty much heartbreak taking way. Maybe three thousand and twothousand and ineteen as well, I'm apart from that that's Ben, prettysleeppakings Um, so yeah Ayou got Ta tank what you can get saing in daand,sorry, I'd travel back to Noni, sixty four and just celebrided out with thefellows yeah. It was was your doubt alive. Then Hey with Tur sae SAAmelbourn Fan from the GETCAR hate dropping Perth. So yes, how? How areyou a Melbin fan actually well in in the waffl he's the O for West purse?The cardinals and I had the same song is Melwoune and I will assign colors oron times the IFBEL. That's when Hekona just jumped on the Melburn milbin days.Becaus thank colors Sayne, so I think my family friend might have played forWest Perth. You Know Chelsea M my family friend C Yeah, her dad, I'm likeninety five percent shore. He played a couple of games in the WAFFL and it wasfor one of the perteins. I like I don't know because thete's, like I'm prettysure, there's northeast south of Yeah Theanyum, so I'm not exactly sure whoit was full. But on ninety nine cent sure he played a couple of games in theWALLFL, I don't think he played like years and years but yeah. I think hewas pretty handy at footy, so yeah fairengoff, the most AE. I I can to be honest, Helvin's,probably even less successful than the Tigers, which is weird werd to thinkathe tigers are like no one is one of the worst in the NRL, but I definitelyfeel your pain. I I think, sank killed up apart from like twenty ten. Havethey been pretty similar to w? Who are the other clubs have beencalten rat? Have they but Carld at the last twenty years. That was Mary Ooudall the way through, like the lost century before that, so the Tigers arekind of like that, because the Bowman tigs, who, as like half of out club,they were like one of the three original teams, so they won like bothprimianships in, like the nineteen tens, so itd be like we're up there in termsof primie ships, but not there's only like three perso nineteen fifty. So itdoesn't really count. Um Then said: Brown. You've got you two'cause we've already Sai Cathic Framan, my number three, it's not really aspecific event. ASD such, but I want to go back and watch Don Bradman becauseI'm a big cricket fan'. Probably arguably one of my it's probably Agu myfavorite sport. I've played it since I was the age of five. I've watched itsince who knows when and brabminishest like everyone inAustralia kind of knows the story about Bramon, which says enough like there'snot too many sports and where Um you C, you just find out about them withouteven trying, but he's statistically the...

...best sportsman to ever live like his. He is that much better than everyoneelse, whos plaged cricket. It's like actually ridiculous. I think someonegenuilely worked out statistically, who was the best sportsmanever and I thinkbrabman was ahead of like babors and just some of the other freaks of theworld. Obviously it's very like I'm very skeptical about himbecause it was like in the Nineteen Twenties Thirties O. I don't think theyfielded the ball, I'm pretty sure. If it didn't go straight to then theydidn't pick it up. Like they didn't dive or anything and there's a lot ofstuff like that, where it Toud be, you know like bi, dodgy butt for someonewith such good stouts like I just want to go back and see if he was actuallythat good or if it was just all a Hark like yeah. So the day, I'm picking inparticular is in the nineteen thirty ashes first day.The test he scored three hundred runs in one day only play to ever. Do itnormally, if the team school three hundred an one day, tat's pretty goodeffort m. So for one play to do it, I must have been a bit of odd day so yeah.I basically just want to go back, not even sure if I'm going to be impressedwith what I go back and see, but I just wanted to see you know it's just something that kind of bugsme about cricket that there's this goat of the sport that no one there's likeno much. There is a little bit of footage, but it's kind of ugrainy andblack and white. So it's hard to tell if it was really that good, it's hardto know if the bowls were bowling like a hundred Kas, an Hou or a hundred andfifty um so yeah, that's just I wan to go back and see if the big fellow was any good atHese craft Um. So yeah. True enough t Bronnie O an my number three is in asimilar tame to Mozses, but North Melbourne, premorship Ittoo, there's been four so imoregenerous than Um for you, guys for and they've all been more racent, but, andit was very hard for me- a decide, but I nleft jus go in in Hon nineteen ND,seventy five, which was north Elban's first primiership, and at the time they were the only teamThayd Bee, the Vafelt. Then for fifty years, an o the only team to never avewan a pramirship at that time, so Um that wouldav be in a pretty cool momentif you're like obviously once yet. I know a few playes from that team, butnot many and like obviously, I'm not don't havean extensive knowledge of what was going on at the time. But Um, if youwere a life, long, Nonlban Fan and now only tame should never win thepremashipe of that time, that being pretty special, but it was tightbetween that and nineteen a D. seventy seven 'cause that was t e year thatNorth Melbourne drew the grand finel and then on in the second week so realyyeah. That was the first time that that happened. Obviously, twenty ten ih wellthat happened, but that was the only other time that has ever happened so,but I end up just going with ninetnen seventy five B'cause. It was the firstver on Um and now toe being a pretty incrediblemoment at the time. If you're a life along the Orselben fan yeah, no, theonly team, it'snever Whin, and then they get it done. Finally, after beingin the lake for fifty years, yeah so good to say, we've all just got atanspretyd in there hs ams of one friendships in our lifetime or not was pretty confident. I waspretty confident Al Three of us were going to have that yeah she's selling. The only thing is, I feel like it wouldbe a bit surreal witd in the Fremirship, like I'm, not sure I feel like you'd, almost take it forgranted a little bit, but um it'd be definitely good to just be apart of like the party like you saw how richmen celebrated in twenty seventeeny, a like just destroying the city just ading around that stuff, especially nowthat we're older Um. I think if you want it, when you're like ten, thatwouldn't be that good, because you'd just feel ops, I go a little tye of itin throe thousand and Ingeteen after the days of Al for a while and then hadthose few, a couple of finers wbet, I beged Yolong Baked Hol Thorn Clang otcaught up in it a little bit made, I ivate apair and things are going really.Obviously, everyone nows that got...

...absolutely smashed in that that BONL Bup until the end, that kind o felt like I, we had won the premership justbecause just ben bad for sorry Lov. So I canonly imagine what I wid feel: Likeif es ever ever managed to go the for way.Yeah yeah there's something about. Like I'm glad I I say pretty much. Every week afterwe lose the I'LL LIP tot off and be like Wite, you have to pick this team,you know, but I am glad overall that I go for a team. That's not successful,because it just makes them more interesting. I don't think followingthe sport would be that interesting. If you wouldn't premisehip once every fiveyears and like the P, the people we know who go for hawful and like half of them are just fair weather fansnow because they just wint every second year. So as soon as they're out of thetop EI te who knowsdo you see, I I've got a question since our tames havenever won or like we don't really remember them, winning you think whenyour Ta wins a primrship. Do you think you'll be like satisfied and like notfollow the sport and not follow the team to the same degree that you didbefore? Or do you think that you'll be like more you'll be more into it afterthey win the premartship and then you'll get more disappointed when theyjust not win the next year 'cause. I personally think that one might. Ifollow the Footy, but when my team went to pemiship finally, and I like tofollow it and I'm like a big fan of it, I think I'll be like okay, like I'mkind of satisfied, and I don't need to follow my team to the same degree as Idid before, because I've experienced that I'm kindo just waiting for thatmoment. Once I've got it, I feel like. Maybe I won't, I don't know, but that'sthat's an interesting point. What do you EALYO think abos Um Yeah? I Li it's a very good question.I've never even thought about that before I reckon if the days teyve awine which surely they have to e mylo o I can, I cani absolutely be satisfied with it and then Ikin the next year. I'd belike you know what we wanted, like I'm barely happy with that poly there's nonort hi that you can Gor yeah on an art. It's it's Ha not go tosa unless you're in e situation. I know my dad in two thousand and five. Heregrets that he like said he wasn't even that pumped when they won. He saidhe was like more pumped when they made it to the grand final and then he saidlike the week. Building into it and like the celebrations he said, he' tlike kind of took it for granted and almostit didn't really kick in till, like you know, a couple of months after they'dactually won the Premiur Shi and by the kind of runs that ship's kind of saled,so something you've got to be in the moment for, but in terms of how I'd beafter, I don't know I feel like it would always be like a big sprint to the finish. So maybethe next few seasons, I might fall a little bit off, but then my boucherieswould like recharge and I'd be back on the horse again. But it's hard to say if they B, if theythen became a team that just came top for ever if, like ten years straight,maybe your expectations would rise and you would just like if they startedplaying average again. You wouldn't care that much, but I reckon I'd bestraightback into it. Maybe it probably wouldn't inspire me to go for it more.I don't think I really care that much about success, but like Um yeah, I D N T, I don't think I'd falloff a hundred percent, but maybe my expectations would kindo be like. Idon't really care how we go for the next. Like five years, we've got outpremishit and M, but then, like after a few years F, youknow, disappointment might might lowel those expectations again. Then St Startcracking the whip on the fellows again m. So what does that? Take US toyoumost?How many have you said of yours a Ho Sofa? What's your third one for thisone, I thoyre not playin to be a boxing fan at all bout Mohammed Ala, justnorthfought in particular, just like his whole career, just the hipe thatwas surrounded by American. It was probably one of the first athletes thatwas more than just an athlete and he...

...was like kind of a public figuf and Umpeople cared about like his life and what he was getting ut through otherthan just like what he did inside the boxing room and Faiin to die aboutMohammed Ala in his career and Dad Isn. A boxing fan Ala, but pope would takedays off school to watch him. Um Inhi, bouts against Im, like Duk Raser, andall that, so he aljust reckoned the whole justhysterial around him would have been really coll to get caught up in, say mynobator yeah rumble and the jungles, probably the most famous one yeah. Ithink thatwas when he came up against George Foreman yeah, but I think thatmight have been. I don't know if, when his prime was exactly, but by that age,Hehad already had like fifty fights and he was already into his thirties. So Ididn't know if that was like passes promarade of prime or whatever, butthat's kind of the most famous one. That is the most random event, though,like looking back to just have a world class boxing fight in the middle ofAfrica like when they when they called the rumble and the jungle, I thought itwas just a name, fror promotion and then, like the other year, I allergicgoogled it and it was in the Democratic Reco Republic of Congo, and I was likeWik what and so yeah I don't know if they did it for charity or something or maybe they couldn't decide on a place,so they just went somewhere round and so no on. So no one had a UM, an upperhand but yeah a hundred percentagree with you that mos he seem Lichael legend, and I remember I can't remember whatOlympics it was. I ight have been twenty sixteen. I think he had parkandsins disease, but he might have held the torch or a little bit andyeah. Iknow my parents, they were like almost in twrs like he just seemed like he wassuch in megastyl and, as yhe said, everyone just loved him like more thana sportsman, and he just seems like the ultimate professional guy. He was likea bit of a performer as well. AH, exactly and yeah yeah con is Qoits aswell like when he gets to his bad goom. He turns a lot off and he's in bedbefore it's dark, just although I saw to qat so I ooy got around him so muchyeah, just boxing in general. At that time I think, there's quite a fewsports there's one. That's actually my final event, but there's quite a fewsports. Even golf like going back and watching home foror spoiling anyone'sother point, theyr going watch going back and watching Craig Norman Um inhis prime there's a few sports nowadays that I just don't think we get aroundas much and boxing's. Definitely one of them. I think the heavyweight storiesof the Sixtis, seventies and even eighties are like pretty amazing andnowadays, like I, I I've gone into it a little bit in the last twelve months,but yet no one cares nearly as much. I don't think many people on the streetwould be able to tell you who, like the heavy weight contendents, are at themoment. So I don't Knowyeah Itwould, be definitely interesting. One to watch.This is brought back bad memories, O Mas. I actually got this question wrongin the quiz. They said who did Mahamadali fight in the rumble and thejungle, and I said Joe Frasie, and it was George Foreman and I legit listenedto a pod cast about it like the day before. It's probably one, I'm a bigtriker in the queen wh when I guess Thewrong slike, brother, some bats and bad merriments in thestressh with me, O Cayo, O in Oa Shovlr Brown you're, a big boxing fan, aren'tYo iw, no, the first cloth, like obviouslyI know whom Mahammedalymmble the juggle es but like it's, not something that Iever really think about. It's not somehing that I even considered whendoing this, to be honest, but it wouldn't be cool at the time to say itall. Yeah yeah, there's qat, Oyurli t. You know your service of pople have noidea about the sport, nor all your famous pots, and always all es lie, owe still n oheMohammed Al Yeah, that's kind of a similar unline, similar kind of Trinasalt. With the Dumbbrabmon thing you...

...kindof just want to see what all thehopes about like I'm, not even really too fast if he was great like a greattechnical baton or a or a Horx, and he was t a hack or something, but I justwant to see what, like all the height, was about pretty much so yeah Um Bronnie. What's your final one, so Minumber two, my number one 's. Obviously Cathy Freeman, that we talkedaboutyefor my number two. I was actually seven when this happened.It was intalcarnight which is quite old for, but I put it in because I didn't know T was.I didn't follow it at the time I didn't know it was happening at the time oranything, but the two thousand night wimbld and final Um between Rafa andRoger, which Rafer one in what they say is like the best wimbled in final thewhole time over five hours. Five sets, I think it was eight six and the fifthset to Raffal, and even though I'm a Roger Fan, the re like Roger, is myfavorite playever. The reason I put desin is because Um Roger had won five Wimboodn zerogoing up to that point and Rafford really he'd won a few grand slans, butthis was his first Grand Slam, not hat the French Open He'd already won a fewFrench opens, but Um. This is his first non French ive been and everyone justassumed Roger was going to winners always and he did it and in the bestwimeldand match of all time, when no one thought Ratha could be competitiveor if no one thought he would ever beat Roger at Wimbledon. It was justridiculous to think that, because Roger Seemed unbatable, and even though I'mnot a big Rafper fan o a big Roger Fan, I'm also a big fan of like not the sameperson winning all the time, and I think the reason I'm a big Roger Fan isbecause I've only been a big tennis fan for the last ten years, where Rogersonly one three or four grand slams, and if I was a tennis fan during big t. Asclose as I am now during the four years previous to that or the five years,Preto that, where Roger won everything, I don't think I would have be. I wouldbe a big of a Roger Fan, which is a weird thing to think about, but Um and I think I might have even beengoing for Raffer at the time and him winning that matching the way that hedid in the best tennis. That people say Ito the best Tennisa they theye e Senejust would have been incredible just to watch that entire, like five hours, anso much drama. There was a few a couple of rain delays like Roger Saves, SepMats bashpoints in the fourth set and then won the set and then Goden into afifth and then Raferen lit winning. What ut she ben an incredible moment. Yeah I actually Wen la. I didn't evenknow that that that was I know. Thate was obviously some of the world's bestmatches ever Y. AH, in that Pere Bue that specific one to be honest, m yeah,I have to say in general I kind of wish I pre like I got around it, but I wishI appreciated tennis from about two thousand ND, eight to two thousand andfourteen a little bit more 'cause. Nowadays I KINDOF looke back on at Iwas like yeah. I just took it for granted, but there was legit three ofthe best players of all time in their primes, almost in their primes likeCockvich, probably not anhis, prime then, but and like they would justproduce five sets Troua Laf te Farset thrand. It would have been at that timeas well 'cause. Nowadays, everyone's Kindof used to it and it'skind of like okay lcome. We sae someone else because these guys have beenproducing these best, also matches for over, like since probably two thousandand seven thousard a night when rafferand Rogers matches really startto pick up. And if you, if I was let's say ten years older, I think I wouldappreciate the three of them, especially referred.Roger'll, probably appreciate them. L A lot more yeah, a hundred percent M and yeah thelike Ironen es, trying open like twenty eleven and twenty twelve. It was just agiven that the semifinals would be five set, thrillers that go to midnight Yand nowadays it's like there's, obviously gray matches each year butkind of lucky to get that so yeah, no,...

...no light in t rannie. Although Li ne Otget a mention I feel like I wouldn't have like, even though now it would bedifferent, but I feel like at the time Australians being successful in tennis,wasn't as rare, so it wouldn't have been, as I did think about it. I didn'tthink about some Australian moments, but we did have like the mid nineties inthe early eighties and late seventies were times west Aranes weren't assuccessful, but I think it wouldn't have been long enough for it to be likefor it to be especial like Um, Philiposis and Rafterhad, both beenquite successive for the few years beforehand and like pack cash onewimbled in like Fif ten just over ten years before that, like you know, I just don't feel like it'sfar removed enough from Australian success to be as special to watch it yeah. I would like to go watch like aDavis copduring that period, I don't know if they won any. They won like thePo Rafter. The A insu Combo would have been yeahwatched 'cause they're, bothlike entertainers. So yeah. Are you a big lighten you fan, though he doesn'treally strow hes a Brannn kind of I'm, a big lateneat fan in the time that I, like F, watchedtennis like the last ten years, but I feel like everyone's beeing, a Bigg,late and Jewart fan in the last ten years and het was a bit more. He waslike a less controversial person an I feel like at that time. He was like alot of people didn't like him when he was like at his Pik when he was liketwenty one ye twenty two. He was like an Burg Yeah and Lo was just a bit of aDrat and lots of people hated him and he did like maturebut. I don't know Y.Obviously e wasn't like curious level, but pretty sure he was a rap bag. Ithink he might Hav had like a ratztailor one yeah very early yeah. Hehad like a Mala. He was like a bargain. I think Hetwas from Adelaide yeah. Soexplain yes, but O it's DEF, um I'll I'll, say myfinal one. So in mot you can be the Grand Fera. Hopefully we don't have thesame one that will be bit of it. I don't think we will but yep well, myons et of a pot, but I'm Ge, I'm going with the nineteen eighty three bottheclote that I result result results, I'm going with the Americas come. This is just something I cannot get myhead around. Why is why we'r sailing V A big event Um? I don't think sailingsever been talked about in Australia. The only reason I know anything aboutsailing is well, I don't even know anything about, but like Um, theHaylebury sailing first captain caught St busome- that's about much as I knowabout it, Um, but no. I have they've started this new sailing thing calledSAGP and it's like a f one type structure, so they go to like a fewharbors around the world and they do like two days of Rac and Kindof like avet because te on type thing and I watched they started in the SidneyHarbor and I watched at- and that was actually kind of interesting but yeah.So the America's Cup has been going since eighteen, fifty one it it's notconsistent, so there'll be like a four year gap or two yea gap at ten year.Galops, it's a bit weird, but the New York yact club apart from well, I din'tknow how there was a defending club in t e enorver, one like not sure how theywon it before it started. The New York Yacht Club had one the first well. Theyhad won every addition of it from eighteen. Fifty one to this one nehosanine hundred and eighty three. This is the first time the New York yactclub had lost so Australia had tried. Nineteen sixty twonineteen sixty seven nineteen, seventy nine teen and seventy four nineteen.Seventy seven nineteen eighty lost all of them pretty convincingly four neel,if not fulr one and then Alan Bond. He decided to invest in this. In thisnewboat caued, Australia, too Hehad had...

...to crack the the three S. prevous seeUm. He D. I don't know what their role is. If they're like the finance or ofit, I don't know if they're like the C of the boat or something but yeAustralia too, it was nineteen, an eighty three, the Royal Perth YachtClub, R scupid by James Bertrand, and I'll be honest. I don't know who thosetwo people are, but I've heard of them a lot just because of this I didn'treally know who albond is, and I don't really know who James Bertran is. But Iknow I know my dad's talked about them, a lot yeah. So I don't know if this issomething to do with bias M my dad's not a sailor. Anything he's not aboat's person, but my dad talks about this event and onthe stop we're eventalking about it. Last night 'cause I brought it up and struggled to get himto shut up about it for good thirty minutes and yeah. I just the main thing issimilar to the DON brabbonthing. It's just pure intrigue. I want to see howthis country got like engrossed in a sailing race. Like I just don't get it.I know tha. I know the America's cop used to be a huge thing, but now, like I watched it once and it's justlike, no one cares about it, like you'll, just see it on Fox borcs duringthe day every four years, and yet this really just changed thelandscape of the Americas g, probably ruined it. Actually Um 'cause. Now,there's like all these random international um yachts, like newZealands onted, a couple of times Switzerland of onteed a few times, soit's probably affected the prestiage on it, but yeah, there's apparently,Australiajust went nots like Dab was saying you were trying to get into pubsto watch it and they were like knocking people back because there 's too manypeople there and UM. I don't know, I think it was Bob Hawk,came out and said any bossu sacks a worker for not turning up today as abum like th y. They wanted him to make a public holiday, but he wouldn't go tothat extreme, but he just said that and yeah I don't know. I think they wereyeah. That's right. They were, they went trenal down. There was threeone down. So they were Tu newled down, then they went three one down, soAustralia had to win the three final races and they did it and yeah. It wasthat Fi, the seventh and final race September, twenty sixth and I think,everone just lost t Australia just went into mayhem, which is just kind of abit of a theme of my antwer. To be honest, I just want to see the intrigueof stuff. That's a bit mysterious. Like John Bramanan. I want to see Australiaunited behind something like they were with Kathy Freeman, so yeah. That's the reason why I'vegone the America's CUF, because it just seems outrageous that there was anation getting around sailing yeah, something that you definitely can'tunderstand unless you were there 'cause. I Jusa I' m M. I've always heard aboutthis thing. That's like put Australia on the map, I'm like how it doesn'tmake any sense to me yeah when I als my daugt about this is well hey, that'sthe first one that he brought up and whenever we go back to Pearth, wealways go to the the Perth Yoct club and Ni still out the Australi tobot inthenanluckit a got a hold musm just build around this one. Bard FSOIT's.Clearly a pretty good thing back m but yeah. I haven't really heard not toomuch about it, but at the time it would have been absolutely huge, so yeah, WerHon, no one call and then the peryock club rocked up in nineteen and eightyseven. So if you win, you get to Hosos in Freemantl, got smacked for Nel andAustralia have never made the Americas culp again. So it's just like once in alifetime phenomenon that, as you were saying Brownie you just like that's just the main thing, ie's,so much intrigue as to Haw. This was such a big thing. It's like a lot ofthe things we talked about. Like I want to S. I want to go back and watch GregNorman 'cause. Apparently he was like a national superstar. I want to go watchthe Kathy Fram and race and yeah. It's just a lot of stuff like that. For me,but yeah Moswhat is your final one o round off the episode mate. Well, mynumber one is just pretty much just a love sport. So one thousand ninehundred and eighty nine grand final...

...between the Hawks Anjolong, it's a gamewhere dam at Brarden got his ribs broken in the first minute, which kindof set the sane for the rest of the day. Garyavli kicked nine Golls in a losingside and on the norm, Mit til long had an eight goll come back in the lastquarter at the Hawks got the wind by a goal I think, which is probably onlydown sire other day, but yet just baing around for that game.Everyone talkd about the Jolongand hawthorn robbery in the aides and thatprobably the one grandfanter that gets brought out the most out of all of them,especially that dem at Derve Berden getting cleaned off in the firstquarter and still going o pie pretty good game. I think Odan really watchedthe whole Guy Tye, apparently still Sta. even though had the broken ribs and sayI ICAN just going back and watching that would have beenen a pretty coolone to be out of I be lotful is that is at in, like of AFL F clor is like thegreatest Grandfa in level yeah. It's the one grandfather that gets talkedabout just always brought up in the top fove and best grandfars of all time.Sorry, yeah allright, it's just one of thise, one g O, let say im cra how highscoring was. If Garyno, I don't yeah Noi t a losing thought. I think it was well. I didn't Imaginaly, they bothturned oup yeah. It was so, I think, Jolon on twenty five girls for thematch, an Halson e twenty se. It was like a hundrd hundred and forty two, ahundred and fifty EI. It was that, like standard scoring for that tie, yeahitwas a hundred and forty four two O hundred and thirty eight Yeahyeahthey,actually both Toke twenty one guals. It was just woltorn- got six bonds, yeahat's insine, prethos coring. So that's always a good for a grant val. Itdoesn't happen very often that one would have probably guys downin five gloors one of the bast. They have ot sames crazy by the looks of it,the the if commentateds the people commentating this game sandy RomansonDennis t like Iwer Gointin five years ago, and what ell that's G, Harlythe, troopes, they'r,gem now, apparently Du it was just like asoup star back in the day, and I welli don't know, but based off the way helooks ot. I assure he was a bit of a roostarback in the day. Well, he thinkshe is now anyway, but Um yeah that would ha been good to watch. GaryAbhe's kind of would you say, is regarded as the best playabll time Imean definitely Meani the top thray. It's hard to deciis the best SimosBradman. I guess cs it's hard to compare Um the play. Ver Generationsciuse obviously plays as getting bet of Um as we trin to Goln Tollin IIT had to Hov to Conpar, but GarryAlet, saying y absolutely would have to be in the top RATEU billy bronlest isplaying. I know him, I'm just looking at who Iknow. Maacom Blit was t the coach I've heard of him not quite sure, W O he wasa player in the north. Seventy five and seventy seven primerships OHG. He musthave eenn young. He was coach and Playe for north an a SAA HA whathe coachedNorth Mellin, while playing that's also wh. Were there any that were close toyou or Um lists that didn't quite make it. I weren't lie: Mim were kind ofjust the first four that stuck to mine, and then I didn't really put yothoughtinto it. But some of your answers have deffened LEAV. I think the SydneyOlympics kind of just as a whole, I think, ah Wou'LD, be quite anoing there.The mine was jus. I was just thinking about their sinealing. Pictures wouldhave been something overall. That is definitely my number one wanted to bether the most the whole thing: Yeah, irfully, Australia, guess the Olympicsagain onsic stage they Bolcoa Bosketball Fan.I would have had h the ninies the Bulls in there and watching like a Jordifli,Bey a'R, not not big enough of a bascal fansnd get around there.

Yhi, I'm just searching up what I'm searching up. The awsomeFORSOM they'ave won golden bacelor in a Golden Atlanta. Just haven't rocked upin two thousand come OI was, I thought T I would have maiat it, and then they apparently came back forthe twenty twelve hows that even past I b Ossib there would away ing. I thinkit might have just been like one of them came back. Hyeah Yahit was justone boyback Hoel. How this is ye mist co Mo one yer I he was thirty eight, I think thirtyseven, so he must have been pretty young in the originals. Yeah Squadronsothat's, pretty much all I've go really Um, yeah, there's not really any. I didn'treally have any honorable mentions to be honest at as it's probably justanything on the same theme just like moments that Australia kind of gotunited behind m people who have a little bit of Intrigue About TheirKorea like in days gone by that no one really knows the level of play. Theywere at a race. I reckon that would be cool togo. What would be like? What's hat race, where all the hundredall hundred meted runners Wele, like O droping? It was like Michael Johnsonand Carl Lewis, or something Um. It was like in the seventies. I think,I'm not sure it's a famous race where yeah all eight competitirs and thehundredmetofinal were like doping and they were all like beast Beah. I guessthat probably wouldn't be the best spectaceat. The time you wouldn'tactually know Yo doping, so wouldn't be that interesting, Jus Beinaotherhundremato final. So that's pretty much got anything else playing for theDAYLIGDS, mols N, just a diet with the couch. I think watching. Iin Yeah, I'mnot too sure wether to go for a skateboard and ot, but yeah pretty muchjust going to be footy from one o'clock to to ten o'clock, as it usually isBrannie.
