It's christmas time, so that means a loose recap of what caught our eyes in 2018. Shoutout to 2018! The cricket, the footy, the tennis and a little bit of everything else. Including Fab fighting a dirty vagrant at a letter box and, hell, even the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show gets a run.
It's a light week sport wise, so naturally Tim, Sean and Fab get sidetracked into talk about stuff, nonsense at Carlton. The NBA and NFL lead us off, Fab freewheels as the Bulls GM, opines that the Eagles will win a wildcard and Tim reads a poem. Then we do a draft recap, Carlton's best team for 2019 and a Mt Rushmore of Blues icons... Let there be more sport in the coming week.
Sean talks about his favourite sports movies of the 21st century, Fabian waxes lyrical about the best game of NFL he's ever seen and Tim closes the book on Spring racing nuggets. Oh, and theres some decent chatter about the AFL Draft, NFL season itself, Australian cricket and Tim Cahill's place in it all.
Fabian thinks Sean is phoning it in, but Sean just hibernates during the Australian sports off-season. Tim wraps up his nuggets and tries to hold it all together, Sean has a new, costly obsession, Fabian wants to chat sport... but its international break. There is no sport. It's plenty loose, this one.
The boys' gather to reconvene their collective descent into madness, documented for all time so that wiser heads may one day make sense of the rambling. This week Fabian, Tim and Sean do a deep dive on First Man, The Meg, sprinkling in some sport for variety. AFL Trade gets a go, as does Australia's issues in the cricket in Abu Dhabi, NBA opening day, NFL comings and goings, postseason baseball and Tim's nuggets ahead of Caulfield Cup Day.
Back after a week off and a false start, Tim, Sean and Fab dissect the AFL Grand Final, rule changes and trade period, Carlton's co-captains, Manchester United's stuttering starts, Winx's legacy, Conor and Khabib, Lewis Hamilton's world title cruise and a whip around the horn of the NBA, NFL and MLB.
It's Grand Final week in the two major codes and that means several things: previews of the big games trips down memory lane re-living former glories that's it The boys also talk former NFL players whose names rhyme with major awards, Manchester United's current issues, heritage listed stands, cultural relations and more!
Tim is at a primary school showing of Aladdin, so Sean and Fab call in the big guns. It's like replacing Lionel Messi with Cristiano Ronaldo. Into the guest chair comes Kelly - shoutout to Kelly. It's a loose, loooooose ep. AFL Finals, ticketing, some NFL, F1, Champions League and all sorts of weird tangents.
You like sport? Tune your ears to this week's chat about the AFL Finals, NFL Kickoff, Kimi Raikonnen's move back to Sauber and a certain temper tantrum at the US Open... As well as all the usual stuff and nonsense: movie chat, remembering Burt Reynolds, Days of Thunder and everyone's favourite wrestler turned escort, Buff Bagwell.
Father’s Day is a sham, an unintended plug for Chromecast, an AFL Finals preview, unintended finals traditions, NFL season guide and Fab’s fawning praise for United’s heroic 2-0 win over Burnley and Sean and his text exchange in the aftermath are top of the pops. The boys also listen to Fab explain the UEFA Nations League and Sean decalre that Lewis Hamilton has one-and-a-half hands on the Formula One's World Driver's Championship.
Tim returns from his travels abroad and joins Sean and Fab in chatting nonsense about AFL, a little F1 and parenting. The boys dissect the AFL Finals ticketing fiasco, the priority pick debate and muse on some possible trades. Outside of that, Milli Vanilli, David Copperfield, Tales From The Punt and more headline an extraordinarily weird chat.
New Top Gun call signs, annoying human beings in advertising, Orlando Bloom doesn't want help from his on-film son, Buff Bagwell... and some sport. Sean, Fab and a very special guest - a legend of the podcast - chat AFL priority picks, coach re-signings, draft chat, media coverage and the Demons finals qualification. Then have a robust and willing discussion about Manchester United and Jose Mourinho's tenure. Talk turns to Arsenal, Goal the movie and... maybe, a Deontay Wilder update. Loose....
Wowser is this a loose ep! Sean and Fabian are all on their own as Tim absconds to Bali for a humanitarian mission, and in his absence they talk about everything from the week in AFL, a review of the first weekend of EPL, a Deontay Wilder update, the fate of the Davis Cup and... a lot of wild, off-topic nonsense. Cocktail. Again. Oh, and Sean has a surprise for Fab!
Much like Wrestlemania XIV - one of the best Mania's - it's only fitting that episode XIV of The PrenderCast is one of our best! We unveil a new full-time recruit, the one and only cultural attache to Provence, France - Tim Davis and dive deep into the AFL, EPL and F1 with a few detours along the way (Cocktail). The Gaff hit, the Giants' premiership tilt, the punch; the EPL contenders previewed and reviewed; Daniel Ricciardo's move to Renault and more.
In this week's episode the boys discuss the goings on in the AFL, NFL drugs scandal, player movement, Buff Bagwell, Tim's thorough Le Tour update, Jose Mourinho's Manchester United future, Patrick Cripps for All-Australian captain and much, much more...
