We brought out the big guns this week. It was Pies’ choice to remember the year 2000.
Before we get into the year in review we kick off by taking a look at the current state of play.
The NRL title was taken out by the Broncos. Lote Tuqiri and Wendell Sailor were the wingers and Luke Phillips played a blinder in a losing GF side.
Essendon were one of the best sides to ever play AFL. They won 21 of 22 during the home and away season and romped through the Finals to win the flag.
But the Sydney Olympics were the big story of 2000. We remember Cathy Freeman, Ian Thorpe, the 4 x 100m Freestyle relay, Tatiana Grigorieva and Jai Taurima. It was a golden Olympic Games for Australia and the best games ever.
Then we rattle home with the rest of the sporting world including 3/4 of the Tiger Slam.
