Maybe what am my listening to? You're listening to this Sam and Alex podcast, but we live. We're live. Do you want to have the honor of saying the code word this week? I was actually going to introduce a new code word this week because I feel like we've used that, the previous one, two times in a row. So I'm going to say so for the next two weeks, the code words going to be luck U Karacha, like Cougar, right Jack. It's also my it's also my safety word as well. Look, Hoo Karacha. That's yeah, actually know if I was like him, if I wasn't undercover cop or something like that, and you know how they've got like a code word when they're going at like when this Swat's gonna like run in and radar home or something like that, I would always I would always make the code word Lukukaracha, just to try and drop it into the weirdest sentence possible. How's your week be man? Well, you know, it's I've been pretty boring as well, as I think everybody's weeks have been the last sort of, you know month in a it. I think there was some good good news from the government. I think when I was it yesterday, they before yesterday, yesterday. Yeah, so things are getting a little bit better. I think they're going to start to eat some of the restrictions, which is which is good and bad, I think, at the same time. But word freedom. But yeah, no. So during the week I really, I did actually binge quite a bit on podcast just to get some I mean mainly to steal some stuff that we can use it. So lately don't don't see us. We're not big enough yet. Now we can't do anything. Yeah, so we can actually drop we could put in like full songs and nobody would care. So we should say hundred percent. Well, I mean our facebook following. We care. Big Shout out to our fans on facebook. We've officially hit fifty folders met and they excluding me and you from our personal accounts. I think. I don't think I even follow out now instagram or facebook. Are You Dick? So big shout out to the fans out there. But yeah, no, speaking of yet, podcast and everything like that. I during the week, I think might have been Thursday, they released Joe Rogan releases most recent podcast with Elon Musk. So he's done Reagan experience. The Jay Reagan experience. He done one. I think it will be like last year, you think, with you on mask, the previous one? Yeah, I think it was last year of the year before. It was I think it was just before Elon started to go a little bit crazy. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you had a bit of a rough patch for a couple of months. They didn't need the Old Elon. Yeah, they want but so, yeah, we were and actually you and I were talking about the the most recent podcast because we both we both are into that. It was it was a little bits you take. No, you would. You want to describe the some of the stuff that they talked about working, because it's a video podcast as well. Like you can sort of see the body language a little bit. Yeah, and he looks his looks a little bit broken and he's kind of I think he's so sick of being like the savior of the world that he's got of just he's really just taking a step back and is just trying to chill the fuck out. It's quite it's quite interesting because of watching. Yeah, he's he does seem like a dude that's kind of on the verge of cracking at any one time, just like the kind of a bit the bit, the bit early old where he's just like yeah, fuck it, I'm gonna sell on my personal possessions, and they just just like well, did you worth a lot, buddy, while you doing that's so hmm to I'm actually it's good point. Why am I to that? So here he's like I'm feeling yeah, I feel sad about it. So the fucking doing it. Do you can? You can almost see Joe look sideways at Young Jemy be like the fuck? I think they they probably the funniest part of it all, though, was when they're talking about so Elo must just had a kid. Was it probably during the wake? Actually might have been literally did. Yeah, and they were talking about, because it's kind of well documented that the name is interesting for the I think it's a girl, or is it a boy? Probably a little calmental comedy. Why? Think? I think the whole thing was that they were going to let the kid decide it's gender as a grow up. Hundred percent. That's as it should. You know it's that. We don't. We don't. We don't want to assume the child's gender this early on exactly. But yes, they were. Joe Rogan and Elon Musk of talking about the kids name. Do you want to have a t and have a cracket? How would you say the name? And I think I can say it. Look, it's a lot of letters and symbols that all all have a bit of meaning when he kind of spells it out. I did quite like, though, where Joe's kind of kind of trying to find a polite way of saying the fuck you call your kid...

...that for then he's like Yo, it was my partner that totally came up with that name. Bra just brought just like the smoothest handball and you've ever seated your life just gets a full accountability for that's just like what you think. I came up with that me. We youd it. It was so funny. Jay, he said, obviously doesn't care about anything anymore because the last, like the last three symbols, I guess, of the name Literally Elon's favorite air of plane. He clearly doesn't give a shit anymore. It's it is yet I think that was that was probably one of the highlights of the week, just watching it to our podcast with Elon Musk and the sort of slowly watching him go a little bit crazy throughout it. Was Yeah, and and and as much as I love Joe Rogan, I mean you and I do take the piss now and again because he does like to bring up a lot of the same points. Get our Joe, but then but I do genuinely raid him as an interviewer, like he's in a viewed some pretty fast ating people, Sam Harris, Jordan, Peterson, Ben Shapiro. Yeah, but with Musky you can tell it was kind of at the edge of I don't know, what would you call it, the intellectual capacity? Yeah, you just have kind of like a threshold for smart conversation before you like Nah, he's get back to dumb shit. And I think Joe Reaches it about our and a half ed where he just he that just goes. I think they go from talking about neural link or ai or something and he just brings it back to Jiu Jitsu. Does with every guess. Yeah, for Jake you should. It's like, Dude, you see that out, you should totally take up jiujitsuit. He was like Ah, really, you reckon? He's like yeah, hundred percent, Bro, and have said breath. Yeah, so that was that was definitely a highlight of the week. I think what about you. How's your week? All rights, it was fine. You know, I kicking it along this this is always the highlight of my week. You know, I've got it. I've got a coffee in front of me, I've got some water and well set up. We're having a bit of a chat. That's kind of as good as life gets at the moment. You know what, all, can you ask for a zoom call with your best mate? It is yeah, it's some. It is a definite highlight. Okay, so one thing I actually wanted to bring out, HMM, is that obviously they during the time that we're like, we're kind of we don't have a huge amount of things to do. So I've I've really got into mobile games. Oh yeah, so not like the dodgy ones where you try to like, you know, you spin things when money and crap like that. Matt May I may ask, is this since your girlfriend banned you from watching Internet porn you know, could they tells not important the details on of no. So this is gay. If you seen the movie the gentleman? I have not. Is that with our favorite Matthew mccarna? Hey, yeah, all right, or at all right, all right, all right, it's nobody knows if the stock is going up or down or lad ways. You know what a forgets? He is. Yeah, sure, forgis. You forgets, you forgassy. It's a Wissy, it's a will see, it's it's not on the elemental charge anyway. So He's in that movie anyway. So it's a feel essentially about how this one guy kind of creates like an empire around weeds, round marijuana, and so this is game that I found on mobile called empire. So I've I've start up playing that recently. I'M gonna say it's probably take it up about, let me, three quarters of my time. It is Eddie has to be like the best game you can buy. Everybody go to the the APP store or Google play or whatever it is, and and down La. It's is unbelievable. I think I've dropped about probably five hours into it so far. Well, we can just say five fuck hundred dollars or so. It's been cool with the Freemy of game. Yeah, that don't spend buddy on it, but it's a it is brilliant. So I've been that's been distracted me quite a lot in the in ISO times. What what do you actually do. So you start off is like a guy who just gets out of prison and you're going to try and build up your empire. So you think you've got like a few dealers kind of that you supply to know you're and you're creating the raw, the raw sauce, the Kush, the system very Jay's very jade. So, yeah, anyway, that's what Laz it. So that's that. Yeah, that's really being be taking up a lot of my time and it's it's really helping me get through isolation. It's it's brilliant. I can also taken up mobile gaming. Also decided that it's probably it's really not an area that I want to get into drug doing. I think there's just there's a too much logistics around it. My Yeah, and I've thought about...

...this a lot, the pure organization from it all, having watched, you know, you watch breaking bad and you just see, like is it worth it? Like there's no work life balance, you know, holidays to somewhat limited. Yeah, you're working in you know, a bit of it. Tapes. Ay, you want to be a meth dealer, for example, those Lad APPs not very hygienic. Exact great for your long term health. I think about the money. Money's good. It's tricky. Are you going to spend a lot of money on, like if you're a mess dealer and stuff like that? Like, imagine how much she dropped on like baths and stuff like is you got to get? You gotta get the Miss. You need like the the appliances to mix. It's a yeah, big it's a really big thing, and you got to get like people who can cook it. Yeah, it's not a business. You don't lightly. No, no, it's some yeah, it's it's not something you do. If you're a high school chemistry teaching you just kind of drop out and do it for a bit on the side. Yeah, exactly. This is like a good show. We should make a show about that. Should totally make a show about that anyway. So, yeah, it's actually my week is being yeah, and robbed out, watching Elon Musk and and playing games bremium cans. If you got any good recommendations for a few freemium games, let us know. GET US up. I'm personally a big fan of stick cricket. I did lose a significant chunk of my week on stick cricket. That's fair enough and that's a brilliant gay. You know that point where you kind of go to the toilet and then realize it's forty five minutes later and neither of your legs work? Yeah, I don't tell. You know, it's a good game. Yeah, I tend to call it once my legs start getting pins and need doesn't like. I properly should call it now that the keys to push through the first phase for the start turning purple. That's what you've got, an issue. That's so yeah, that's the's rial commitment to the to the cause. I think. Sticking on isolation, obviously we've been an eye for over two months now. And Look, when you spend a significant period of time with someone, you do notice, no matter how well you get on with the you do notice things about about them that really start to annoy you. Things can get a little tense, tempers get short. You know, the slightest thing annoys you and it's a natural part of life. You know, I've got a roommate, you live with, very serious, long term girlfriend who I'm sure doesn't have any faults the whole, hypothetically speaking. What what are some of the pet peeves that have kind of either correct into your life or were they're already they give you the absolute shits. Warning, warning, aren't rage ahead? I think so. I actually don't have a huge amount of like household pet peeves, because I feel like the most annoying. I never do any housework. Yeah, I feel like the most annoying as my house is me. So yeah, it's I imagine that she would have quite a few pit peeps about me, but there's not a huge amount in reverse. But I think one thing, one thing that does really peeve me off is, and something that I think my girlfriend will understand, she is somewhat involved in I understand that there's people that sort of operate about ten minutes lower than everybody else. Like that's fine, I think that's a that's like genuinely a thing. But it's people who make other people late. So, like if you're in a couple, there is always a person who's a little bit slower than the other person getting ready or maybe, know, trying to finish off whatever they're doing. And Samuel, who might that be? Is that very serious long term girl, but without naming names, it's definitely her. It's key. Key Ham said if you're if you're under dress, I'm winking ferociously. Yeah, so I think that's that's one of the pet. The things that quite frustrates me is that there's like in relationships, or even just in house, like you know, if you're got a roommate as well, there's always one person that really slows down the other and that's something that really frustrates thing. I'm a hundred percent with you on this one because I'm quite a punctual person myself. You and I are always done time to stuff. So, yeah, when someone's even makes me late, it really really stresses me out. It gives me the shits. Yeah, I feel like you and I are both not emotionally mature enough to have that conversation with that person. We just kind of stew. Oh yeah, the next two three hours. What's wrong? Fine, yeah, fine, I don't care. Let's just go ORT to go home. Jesus, it's get to know we've got the emotional capacity of a toddler. Yeah, exactly. Do you have...

...any any sort of household pet peeves that sort of ever risen in the making the last two months? Yeah, this one has, in a Riversen in the last two months, but it's more one that I've kind of had from back when I kind of lived in a sharehouse. Now I don't want to break too much, but I'm doing well enough that off got my own bathroom. So this is a an issue anywhere. No, this is people who live. You leave, you know, the shower mat, the Bath Mat. Yes, when you get out of the shower and drives your feet, leave that on the floor after a shower. Yeah, really fucking Shit's me like there's nice tomorrow. Hang it up so can drive. It's ready for the next person, because then they get moldy, they get smelly, they never dry and quite off that they're not cheap, like a decent you know, because the cheat ones they don't absorb any water. They just kind of sit on the floor and stay wet. Yes, sure, see, sure, you gotta be dropping at least twenty and twenty five bucks on this thing. Like look after it, and not before my current house, Matte, the house before that. None of the guys. I lived in a house with three other guys. That's probably a bad sign. Yeah, sure, none of them used to hang it up and it just absolutely getting in shits. Yeah, I get that. This is like that. This whole sequent is like. Yeah, the family guy episode where it's like what grinds my gears and thinking, how do you say? I think there's definitely a so many that are around the like the bathroom. It's just a chasm of ever annoyance. I think the bathroom, I mean, I mean there's there's some that are probably a bit a rational one. I think you could probably empathize with this one as well. This is a kitchen related one. Sure, people who don't soak dishes? Oh yeah, now I should preface this by saying I'm a bit of it. I'm a bit of a neat freak. I like to keep a house, you know, clean and tidy, and I don't mind actually doing other people's washing up. That doesn't bother me. I quite enjoy washing up. I quite enjoy earning. I find the both therapeutic. Sue Me, but I will not, I will not tolerate this, when you leave your shit in the sink and not even a little bit of soapy, soapy hot water in the bottom, because, yeah, try scrub a pan after some of that, particularly if it's rice. Rice is one of the worst ones. Sure, Jesus, you leave bloody fingernails. Yeah, I can, I can, yeah, I can definitely empathize with that. I think it's a yeah, yeah, simple. It takes two seconds, literally after you finished eating or cooking or whatever. I know what's wrong with people. It's quite simple. You're already by the sink. You have no excuse exactly. It's a it's just something that happens, I think. I think it's it'll happen to the to the the end of days, and I think it's a yes, we be resolved. No, I won't tolerate that. It's got to stop. It's why people like me have short a life expectancy. Yeah, you stress itself out so much about people are not rinsing dressing, about having to buy that a sixty pad really the last one? I think so. Yeah. So one of the pet peas were not so much in the house because yet, as I said, I think I'm the primary cause of pet peeves in the house, but on the right, I think is one I've already mentioned before as well, is if you drive like clists. Yeah, driving down the road and you got to cyclists, like writing to a breasts, which I feel like. I feel like that's been happening more recently with the like, you know, because it's not a huge amount of opportunity to sort of get how the house, yeah, the house, and get fit and all that sort of stuff. So I think. I think people are riding their bikes around a lot more and try to do it in pairs or whatever, so they've got slick and company. Yeah, and it's, yes, so frustrating. What why do they feel the need to have a conversation? You know, case now or whatever, the cycling along at it's just like, yeah, stop, get learned the road rules. Get behind this guy like no one drives a car to abreast into one coming through the other car. A chat exactly, I i Dave, what did you see here? What's going on bag? And actually, at the moment with social distancing rules as well, you see it with runners and walkers as well, like they're trying to walk side by side, like a meter apart, and then you've got nowhere else to go if you're walking down a footbath. It's ridiculous. And actually that is one yeah, because when you go for a run now days, like to say you do have walkers that are a major part, but then where do you go if you're the runner wanting to work? To take exactly go in the middle and break social distancing? Did you on the outside of risk getting hit by a car? It's just a for you. Do you do what I do? Ken He to the back of one of their heads to keep you going now,...

...exactly. That's all you can do. Please edit that bit out. You know what, no, grisw is, people who don't edit shit out. Yeah, and I've actually I've got one more pet peeve. Actually, sorry to keep going. I feel like now this is good. We're getting out of the system this. I don't repeat it. So, particularly with work at the moment, emails are becoming more and more important and being obviously not being in the office, you tend to if you're sending an email, there is going to be quite a fair few like points within that email. So, like, if you're asking a question, you might or you might start to be asking like three or four questions within the email because you want to get a really sixcinct response so you can just sort of move ahead with all your work without a need to go back and forth, back and forth. So my next pit peeve is in the workplay is if you're sending an email to somebody with one with more than one or two with more than two questions. Yeah, people tend to only respond to the first question in that email. If you notice that got that annoys me. See, like you'd be asking like you know, you know, question why? Question to question three? People will answer question one, they might consider question too, but they'll never get to question three, and it's just something that gives me the absolute Shit's particularly. Yeah, obviously because we need to be communicating via emails so much more or whatever, like. Yeah, it's just becoming so frustrated. Absolutely for me, I've found over three dot points becomes a phone call just because I don't have time for the back and forth shit. But yeah, like you say, when some when you when you drop three and they quite three, three separate clear points. Just respond to all three. It's even put I even put it in a bullet point list so it's easier for you to just put it in in the different color text. I tend to me. I tend to do that. I've saided some bold at now and put like you know, one dot. It's just it is. Yeah, it's like dealing with children. It's really frustrating. Do you that drop the old as per by email below where they yeah, miss a point that I do that all the time. I'm really noticed. Actually, recently I've been doing out so much more. It's just like, per my previous email, you're a fucking idiot. I so I saw on the other the day it did happen to be having someone else where the they said, as per my email below, and then attached the the same conversation thread, but two emails earlier, as they attachment to that email. Yes, I have likeic that. That's checkmate. There's no coming back from that. I have. Yeah, I've definitely say over there. Yeah, I sadded do the the the attachment, the email attachment within the letter, just to really rub it it as like, no, you're just an idiot. I have. We should probably move on, but I have. I have got one more. This is a sporting related one. Good, that really annoys me, particularly cricket as well. You know, you and I big fans of cricket. Is when you're batting, you probably have an experienced this when you actually in you've got your eye in. Okayse I think I find cricket most of my life and I think I've ever had that feeling before. Yeah, sorry, let me put it in your terms when the balls coming out of the middle, no, that's not right. When you kind of in and you've met, you're on on a twenty or thirty your side and then a new batsman comes to the crease. Yes, sure day, face an entire over and then call us, call you through for a single off the last ball to help the strike. Yeah, well, when a tail ended does that, had really really gives me the shit. But there's no tomorrow. There's nothing worth the tail ender that backs themselves when they really shouldn't back themselves. Yeah, yeah, it's like I find how I'm finding it really hard to relate to. This is never I've never really felt like I've been in. I don't think I've ever made twenty before. So I appreciate you made a gritty thirty seven a few couple of seasons ago. Didn't. I didn't. I didn't want to bring that up, but yeah, I did save the day that day. But yeah, although we did and we did still lose. But Anyway, when you when Your Dad came to watch, and I think thirty three of those runs came from fine leg. But that's besides the point. So clearly besides of point, and I think you were scoring. Also, we can't be understad sure I have any runs. I did actually hit off the pack. Actually, actually, I'm pretty sure that's one like the previous cricket club that we paid for not to get to sidetrack. You and I have a habit of when we're scoring together, we don't give buys to the filthy t we give it to the batsman. Obviously, if anybody from our new team is listening, we do apologize, but there's probably quite we don't do that with we haven't done it since, but we definitely used to do so. I'm pretty sure. I'm pretty sure to remember when a made viewers came down to play, when we played it in a thirty nine degree day, sticky. Yeah, yeah, and I think he made probably about ten more...

...than he pretty technically scored off his back. I think. Yeah, I think we gave it. We gave you about twelve runs of the yellow hit the ball three times and they came off of wet. How a would he did I get? We were twelve. We were really okay. Did yeah, it's the only way. It's so you gotta away like if you get to get forced to score cricket in forty degree. Hey, you may as well have a bit of fun with it. Yeah, you can. You can be asked filling in multiple column and know so much as too much work on that. We should we move on to our next and next piece of content. So this is actually this is being a bit of this has been in the works for a while, I'm pretty sure. This next this next piece of content we're going to introduce. Yeah, we're going to introduce this a few weeks ago, but then I think we decided not to because we went like twenty five minutes over. Anyway, actually have that. I'll get you to introduce this one, because this is one of your original topics. So I'll give this to you in a percent man look. You know, in in a lot of yours of mine, in our private conversations that we have when, you know, just guys being guys. Sure, they generally involve neither of US understanding much, or literally anything, about women, in spite of conducting, you know, numerous surveys, watching youtube videos. I've watched literally every wrong calm under the sun and to everyone who's come back and me and said not in Hill is not the best of all time, come at me, Bra I'm glad somebody back to me up there, but I'd so many good I had a few girls come back and go, you are so wrong, like add it up. It's like when you read the comments on Youtube feats. I've got into one of those wars. But anyway, we're still know wiser on our quest to understand women and heal a straight this point. What we thought is we've come up with some attributes that men have to varying degrees, and we thought we'd have a go at ranking them. Show you you know what's from what's least important towards most important to a woman. Welcome the love, Connor. Now we won't actually announced who won in this show. Will each conduct our list. We then going to give this list to your very serious long term girlfriend. Sure he's going to view both lists and decide who's closest to being a winner? Sure, sure, so I'm going to have I'm going to read out the original list in no particular order, and then we'll have a bit of a go at rearranging the list in order, in descending order. Sure, almost most important to listen, most important to listen, but yeah, yeah, thanks. Yet sorry stumble through that bit. Dinner not even at the wines. Today, this is coffee. Jesus see, I've had three coffees. I'm shaking a little bit. But let's get us heart rate at what died. So these are the attributes. Muscles, financial stability, dress sense, sporting prowess, how well groomed you are, it taste in music, what her friends think of you, you, how big you're is if you have a car, and how nice of the person you are. Sure, let's go on. So what I'm thinking here is we each go through like what's you number one, number two, and we'll debate at each stage. Sure, sure, okay, sounds good. Do you want to go first? My all right, I'm happy to. I'm happy to start this one. Okay, sure, so I should mention so when we, I did prepare this when we originally came up with the segment, and it has actually it has actually changed in the meantime. So so that's how that's okay, you ready? Yeah, okay. So number one, the most important I said, is how nice a person you are. Would you? Would you? Would you agree with that? I've actually got that as well. Oh, could. And then we go. How we go? Well, let's just go in our order going all the way down. Should we do that? We'll talk about our different yeah, let's do that. Okay. So, yeah, how nice a person you are. Definitely number one. Number two, now this is a bit interesting and I think you'll have this one. I've said dress sense at number two. Yeah, okay. What's yours? Sporting prowess, of course, because it's kind of all I've got to hold onto. Probably probably explains what I'm sickle Jo Joda, back up, you are, do it not? So? I think quite a few girls out there like a bit of an athlete. Yeah, that's that's what. That's very true, and this...

...actually comes from a conversation we had with you very serious long term girlfriend, where she said she wanted you to get back into footy because she wanted to come what you play. She did say that. Yeah, got evidence. Boo. Yeah, and I would I would sort of argue that that's probably somewhat like a legitimate trait. That's important. But yeah, I've just got included that one. And so my number three is it's similar to sort of dress sense, is how well groomed you are. So I think interesting. I think dress sense, dress sense and how well groomed kind of can be interchangeable at at two and three frothing points. Yeah, yeah, that's happenings. I've gone for a bit of a contrabution. Want what a friends think of you. I would I almost agree with that one as well. Yeah, I feel like that's I couldn't work out where in the top three put that one, but I knew it was high sum. Yeah, now, definitely, I definitely said agree with I think that's and that's why I've put that one up for so I've got what a friends think of you at number four. Okay, number four, I've gone for how big your because well, look, in spite of what girls say, I feel like a to a certain degree, it is important, I think. I think having a good like a good sex life, I think is important. I'm not sure how important that like, as long as you can you know what as you know what you're doing somewhat. You know, after watching all the videos that I've watched, I think I understand it a little bit better. You understand Japanese fishing like there's Day to borrow. I have a great a expert fixing your photocopier. Yeah, I can. Yeah, I can fix a kitchen sink or or delut. I can deliver Pazza, I can fit you fix a kitchen sink and I could. Yeah, I can get fish in Japan. I'm also really good at cleaning a pool. I. Yep, Yep, that's important. Being a tennis coach. Are you? I can't think of any other. Yeah, that's a few. Yeah, that big stepfather controversial as so, sitting on my next one, I've got his financial stability. So I thought that's yeah, I rank that one so so by I've got that. I feel like that as as you kind of get older, you know, we're in our meat to late s now. Yeah, I feel like that one's drastically creeping up the list. Yeah, I know which is which isn't great. So I need to get I need to get a better job, or we can start like running from this. Who knows? That would be good. You know, if any sponsors out there, you know, I want to give us a bit of coin to this so we can move that bit higher on the list. That a bit would be swell this. Well. So the next my next one, I said, is sporting prowess. Interesting, I've gone for dress sense. Yeah, next one. That's fair. Yeah, I say that then my next one is how big your is. So I've I've put that down at it's at seven. Yeah, seven, seven, interesting, not like. Yeah, yeah, I'm reflection. That's probably probably a bit more accurate. Oh night, it's hard to with. Like you know, if any girls are listening, would love it if you guys can. Can send in your own list absolutely soon. It's send us see in your list, because I assume it changes from bill to girl. Yeah, suretentially, I feel like how big it is only becomes an issue if, you know, it's not quite how do I put this up to requirements? Yeah, exactly, I think, and I think it's or it's surplus to yeah, yeah, exactly. of it becomes painful. I think that's that's definitely an important factor as well. Hm. So my next one, I said, is muscles, which I really surprised that you did have this at number one. To be honest, I did. I did think about it and, as a you know, like any logical guy does at the end of any relationship, I do have a follow up survey. You know. How would you rate your experience, Daddy Alex? How likely I you to Recommend Alex? You family, your friends? You did that could approved. You did that once, did you? Didn't you do that? Yeah, for server. Yeah, no, all jokes aside, I did that once. Purely gives this chick was like that shit crazy. I don't know I ever went there in the first place, but that's a completely separate story. So I thought, Oh, this would be funny. She did not find it funny. Now I remember having the conversation,...

...remembering the conversation with you next day. It was pretty is a pretty funny conversation, to be fair. Already go what positioned you do? So would be funny. Shit's again. So then I've got so I've got tasting. I'm finishing off with tasting music and then, if you have a car, there might there might interesting. Interesting. Okay, well, kind of my last few below financial stability. Kind of sit from seven downwards. I've got muscles, taste in music. How well groomed you? I feel like this is less than less of a factor, because I know if you find a load of get like all the guys in Fitzroy or Brunswick, they look practically homeless and never all got girlfriends. So that's true. You know, I don't think it's a factor. And then having a car. I know, I think it's big deal when you're one thousand, six hundred and seventeen. Yeah, exactly. Oh my God, he's got a car. That's like so, Huh. Where now it's more Channi Twain. That don't impress me much. Yeah, but tell me more. Tell me more, like does he have a car on the side night sho I twain. It hard to impress her, I know right. Feel like I go, well, Daddy Schneis Twain or even Brad Pitt couldn't impress her. So, like, that's ridiculous. Doesn't impress so much. Ah, here's one. Yeah, send it into the send it into us. What do you reckon? SCHNAIA TWAIN'S LIST WOULD BE, obviously if you have a car, big bottom of her list as well. You Chine I twain. Single Cam as actually potentially my given given how, given how piky she is, the nentire song was all about stuff that doesn't impress her. Well, you know what love, what the Fuck does impress you? Yeah, exactly one. So should I. Yeah, exactly. It's just it's not fair to the aspiring country singers who wants to, who want to use her to get ahead as very nice I think it's a good time to reflect on, like, you know, on earlier times, on your childhood, and there's actually there's actually lots of shows that there's also like the Netflix and stuff, where they like the majority of the show is literally a person reflecting on their earlier life. So, in a bit of a bla blast from the past, I guess we're going to go through some of our favorite and funniest sporting memories of playing sport taught with our parents and I suppose, like did anybody do anyone's parents, I guess, have a bit of a bit, like bit of white line fever, as they are as they started playing some sport, spouting chats. I definitely think when I have kids I'm going to be like one of those ones that I'll be a nice, sad yeah, I'll be nice until, yeah, until I play a set up like sport and like, yeah, absolutely brutal. I want to go home. Nice Sam got it the UPART, the oupires it come back to his car. Yet I want, I wanted to see the slash signs before I drive off. That's a yeah, I think that's definitely going to be a feature of my my parenting style. I think as I get older. I said that you start. Do you have any given in good examples that you can think of playing sport with either of your parents? Oh yeah, I should probably do a bit of a shout out to my dad, who is incredibly patient grown up. So also the best talent wise that any sport or still am frankly, he had a lot of patients. He always had a lot of time after work, no matter how tid he was, he you know, come out have bit of a ball or, you know, kick the footy or whatever. Sure, and I actually played create with dad for quite a few years and then actually he came out to Australia. You played in this game? I did couple of years ago. He's edging. He's just turned sixty actually now adds dad would have been High High S. and my dad, he tooks a very good game. He's got a very good cricketing brand, but when it's actually game time he gets so nervous it is unbelievable. And he's not one of those good nervous people that kind of keeps it to himself. He kind of talks to everyone and he doesn't need to do it, but he just kind of rambles on to the point where it's making you nervous. I remember. I think that the funny. So the funniest example of this was when we got to the ground, I think, and we had a bit of a hit in the net beforehand and like get my girlfriend happened to come down to the game because it was down at the coast and yeah, she wants to go shopping or, you know, go to the beach or something like that. And as you dad is some of beginning to hit this kind of nervous chatter. He went up for a son of talking to it and then, and like it always fight. And then I think you must have asked my girlfriend afterwards what what she thought of his dad's she was funded saying that he seemed like a cuddly teddy bear to which you relate to your dad, and he got furious. He's still furious about that to this day. That was bit...

...of the in it back in the day. But in this part in this particular game, Dad, Dad took a wicket. It took one thou hundred and twenty, I think, off about five or six Ivers, which pretty impressive for a guy. And is, you know, High S. yeah, but you know it's time. Kind of went on. When I was getting older. I started to dominate as bowling a bit more and he lost it. He lost a good yard of pace pretty quickly. See kind of have to pretend it's it's an intro too faster than it actually is. Get war cheese that came through. You know what I mean. You have to protect the ego bit more. Yeah, but probably my favorite game is there's a club I played for back in England. We had one game against top thele. He and dad start that they're really used to give him a bowl, but he came on and he got five for thirty and just essentially ran through the middle water like they really like. There is no to borrow every every celebration under the Sun. I think he chucked out that day. I think the I think the first one took it by a surprise. I should mention the three of them were caught close in the field and I took some absolute stammers. But I'm pretty sure, and he'll probably fight me on this one, but I'm pretty sure he broke out the Brittlely chainsaw after the five. I can see. I can see that happening. Yeah, to which in the car on the way back. I'm kind of, you know, spreaking him up, boosting the a little bit, and he didn't really say much for about ten fifteen minutes till he goes. Still got it, son. Driving is like that. The finger guns and kids go what's got two thubs? That just took a five at this dad. He's just a good sir, I think. Again. So my dad when I was younger, I think he he's very competitive, but he was good at sports that I didn't really enjoy. So he played like he grew up in Sydney, so he played rugby and growing up down in Melbourne we didn't even like, I didn't play rugby at all. So so that was kind of that was his sport and in a little bit of cricket. But then so I am because, like you know, he's a dad, so he'll do what I wanted to do. So I wanted to play footy, like I fel so we'd be sort of kicking the ball, would go down to the local footy ground and like have a competition about like kicking, kicking the ball to the goal and singing keep the most goals. And, spite not being very good at that myself, I would tend to always beat him. And Yeah, and so he'd get a little bit and then, you know, obviously you laid it a little bit, like he's like God, that was a pretty shot today at all bad. So so that that sort of went on for a while. Probably went out. This is probably, and I was like eight or nine. So the only way you could really get me back was when would play cricket in the backyard. So I think we started playing cricket. I think we're not about six or seven and and so you need to learn how to hit the hit the like the proper group ball, hard ball. He would bowl the ball so quick to me, like most of the time. I couldn't see it like that. I'm about the same batting skills. I did what I was said. I it's good to know you batty has an improved it's you serve exactly. So you would purposely start in seat of running and bowl quite quick but like there was no sort of no worry about bowling short or anything. And I probably didn't even have a helmet back then. So probably, sure, I think sure, no helmet. It's like it's like that. Maybe he's got a fucking learn to play the shot. Yeah, so I think that's that's really that's probably the prime example I can think of of. Yeah, if dad being ultra competitive while playing sport, and it's something that I think I'm definitely going to pass on to my kids when I played, when I started saying support with them hundred percent. I think that's that's a badge of pride for kids. I feel like, you know, you take it personally. Likewise, dad attacking me, but your dad must genuinely rate you if he has to bring out the Chin Music. Exactly. Yeah, and my dad used to also to try, add to the intimidation, get my poor younger sister to field under the lead at short leg. And now, which she which he hated unstead yeah, just sadly, no down. What to go play by Bobby's no, I need totimidate the boy. Now. She's what she's Umpan, obviously one of the best short leg fielders I've ever seen in my life. Like nothing gets past he has great just all the walls, the Rale driver to short league. And what was you? Did you, dad ever have a bit of touch line temper, but of what line? Fever? Yeah, I mean, yeah, he was just he was ultra competitive with anything, particularly if we were playing. So, as I said, when I started playing junior footag when I was about, okay, nine or ten or whatever, he would he...

...would tend to do the goal I'm hiring because you know, lots of is not really that many parents will actually offered to do it, so he tended to just do it. Yeah, and they're quite a few occasions when, despite him not actually playing the game, he would be dishing he'd be dishing out some of the worst sledging as a goal on fire that you could possibly there was another one game one of our teammates are taking a set shot at goal, like and he was the goal umpire behind our goal and I think myself for somebody else was free in a little bit of a better position as so the kid went back miss the goal and dad sledged him so badly, like sledges like an eleven year old that is like that. You should have fucking passed him the Ballis in a better spot. Like it was worse the worst sledging that you don't like. I don't hear that bad at the moment. And we're playing some senior footage, so it was yeah, it's a bit of it was quite funny. I think watching watching dad sort of umpire for us because you were just crack it so badly at the other day. Or did you, Mam, ever get frustrating, because I know my dad did a bit of that too, like, Oh, you play with your shoelaces together today, so you see, you just just directed to other eleven year old ones. Boways Andrew, for God's sake, just again. No, it's not, it's not, it's not. You don't understand. I think it wasn't so much. I never really got sledge too much. It was mostly that my teammates, like if they didn't pass me the ball, it's ledge your tea. Yeah, it's such atte you for just not passing me the ball. It was. I think he's even done it once in senior footy as well. It was, but that was obviously a little bit scarier because you know, that's but yeah, I think that's that's definitely a pretty extreme example of some white light temper but yeah, yeah, so he yeah, he did that for a long time. It was, yeah, quite funny. Yeah, I feel like I'm going to be one of those DADS as well. Yeah, it's you get you get passionate like you and I love throwing a bit of it, you know, a bit of a sledge in there and just, you know, local cricket, a local footy or whatever it is. But yeah, if it's your rant kid, I can see how you're going to get so emotionally invested in it that you just threw out a cop that, you dickhead. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I think it's yeah, it's definitely be. It's definitely be a feat of feature of my future life. Just got to make sure you don't be calm like. Do you ever see that piside of south part where Randy Marsh goes to watch the baseball games? I thought this was America. That's just it's fighting. That's it starts training to fight the guys the last last game of the season. Yeah, it's like a rocky montage in the middle. That's a yeah, hopefully it doesn't get that far, but you never know. Yeah, feel out a healthy balance. That's our flice today. Find a healthy balance, throwing the odd bit of shade or, you know, just maybe stick your leg out as a kids running past trip him up. I feel if we have kids around the same age and they both play in the same sporting team. I feel like we'll get like that, because we'll rile each other up. Yeah, we will. Now, actually, now you know what we should when we get out, what we need to do is we need to offer to UNPI every single game of cricket, like together, like well, will alternate between short, between square leg and the main umpire and just drop so much gear while they're playing. It would be so fun. Yeah, cute guys. For a guy to two centers, please, Gay, don't not worthy guard. Maybe he's gonna be fun. Head off. You deserve that one. You absolute fly. No Bull. What Yat about it? Hit. Yeah, it's gonna be brilliant. We've been we've been talking from probably well over an hour now.
