Episode 173 – Pulling The Team

Geelong Korea Walkoff

The Sydney Storm has kept Big Zacko stranded on dry land for another week. And Pies was a late arrival. But we managed to get through it all.

Zacko and The Producer recap the last couple of weeks in the NFL. Cover the big stories. Then Pies turns up to tip a big upset.

The Producer and Pies then take over and discuss the touring Indian side and the upcoming test series vs Australia. Australia have selected an interesting squad and there should be at least one debutant for the first test.

Pies and The Producer joined Erik at the ballpark for one of the Sydney Blue Sox vs Geelong Korea baseball games. Hilarity ensued. Hear our recap here.

And the final round of the Supercars was held in Newcastle. The Producer was watching all of the action and controversy.

Episode 172 – Darl The Rains Are Here

Oriole Park

Big Zacko is stuck on the farm with the bridges to the boondocks washed out. So it’s Pies and The Producer in studio and Big Zacko via carrier pigeon.

The NFL season is shaking out with the cream rising to the top of most divisions. There’s still some interesting races going on though. Week 11 should give some clarity to those divisional battles. Or will it?

Australia and South Africa completed their 3 game ODI series with South Africa winning 2-1. Perhaps Australian cricket isn’t completely dead. Can the Marsh Brothers dig us out of the hole? Or is there another saviour on the horizon?

Pies and The Producer are off to the baseball on Friday night to see Sydney Blue Sox play Geelong Korea. Should we spend more time talking about the ABL?

Plus we whip around the other sports including Soccer, Motorsport and the weird NBA season.

Episode 131 – Two Mediocre Teams Enter

The Ashes

Sports historian and newlywed Erik Nielsen joins us to preview The Ashes which kicks off tomorrow morning in Brisbane. We debate the selection nightmare that was the Australian team. The unknown English bats. And the possibility of the weather affecting the outcome of the series.

Then we introduce the Australian Baseball League to the podcast after Brendan and Erik spent an afternoon and night at the Sydney Blue Sox vs Adelaide Bite Double Header.

And the Rugby League World Cup just got a bit more interesting with Fiji and Tonga into the Semi Finals.
