The Monday Dump 28/Oct/02
Shots of Melbournes new Federation Square. HG was talking to Steve Vizard and Steve Vizard reckons Federation Square is made up of a million triangles.
Sunline, one of Australias most popular horses, has retired. Even though Sunline didn't win his last race, Sunline wasn't bothered because Sunline was there just for the fans. Roy knew this because spoke to him often. Roy and HG want the horse Northerly to take his place in the Melbourne Cup.
Mark Waugh has retired after being dropped from the Australian Test team. Mark Waugh was great in the team because he fielded, batted, bowled and he used to keep the bear cold. HG feels like a piece of him has been dropped since Mark was dumped. Given that Mark was dumped, Roy wonders how Mark Waugh could have retired since he really didn't have a choice. Reckons he should have fought on.
Roy and HG go through the England side that is touring Australia in the summer. Names like Caddick, Simon Jones (a surprise packet), Hoggard and Hamison (the wide specialist) leave Roy and HG worried about Australia's chances.
Choas at the Indy car races because of the rain. Lots of crashes with some Indy cars left with two wheels. Drivers wonder if they can drive on.
Shots of the speedway final. Roy reckons if they made the Indy car races run on a ciruit (like the speedway) the race will be much better because people can sit their with a bag of chips and watch the whole race without having to watch just a section of a road.
Bruce and a Horny Guitar
Tim May and Ian Healy
Someone emails in and asks, given the drought conditions, what is the best cut of meat for a drought effect cattle. Roy reckons its the bladder and liver because, they get bloated and diseased during drought conditions and are therefore the biggest. HG reckons the oysters aren't too bad either.
