Pies and The Producer back together for one last show of 2021.
We wrap the first two Ashes tests and look ahead to the next three.
Then we touch on the last few weeks of NFL and EPL and tip our next rounds/
We recap the end of the Formula 1 season. Max Verstappen delivered on the promise Christian Horner saw in him all those years ago with a victory in the final race of the season. Lewis Hamilton did everything he could, but the Red Bull finally dethroned Mercedes.
Then the team give us some highlights, lowlights and predictions for 2022.
From all of us here at Bats Balls. Merry Christmas and here’s to a slightly more normal 2022.
290 – NFL, Soccer, Cricket, Motorsport, Other Sport
The Producer is wrapped in cotton wool and plaster so he should make it through the full episode. We’re back to cover all the sport.
In the NFL it’s a funny season. Are the Chiefs back? It’s too early to tell but signs are good. The Rams are in a hole and the Pats could be the best team going round.
In Soccer we’ve got the International weekend and World Cup Qualifiers. By the time you listen to this Australia will have played China in Sharjah. EPL is back this week and we give out tips. Arsenal have gone from the cellar to the hottest team in football in the space of 2 months.
Australia beat New Zealand comfortably in the T20 World Cup Final in Dubai. New Zealand have played the final of all three forms of the game in the last couple of years taking out the test championship but losing both forms of limited overs finals. Our friend Erik may have coined the phrase DSC So Big.
SVG is close to wrapping up the Supercars title with one more round at Eastern Creek before Bathurst. And in the F1 Lewis Hamilton kept the title alive with a stunning victory in Brazil.
Meanwhile in other sport, Pies is loving the NBA season because it actually looks like Basketball again. Josh Giddey and Patty Mills are doing some good things too.
Australia and England are heading to Brisbane to prepare for The Ashes. A preview will be out shortly.
And we finsih off with The Producer’s plans to fix the lopsided NRL draw.
