RiotACT Rugby Review Podcast – Season 2, Episode 15

By johnboy - 8 May 2007 9

The RiotACT Rugby Review Podcast 14 of 2007 is available now. It features the music of Dahahoo from their new album Tarantism.

The beer for review this week is Leffe. The recording was done in All Bar Nun in O’Connor amidst much mirth and with many thanks to the bar for accommodating us.

As luck would have it our podcast coincided with the arrival of the Brumbies for their “Mad Monday” which is why we have the above photograph of Che and three Brumbies providing mutual support to each other.

The T-shirt with the picture of George Gregan on it says “have you seen this man?” and on the back they had a red cross with the words “Search Party”. We were informed, many times, that it has been 8 years since George went out with the boys on mad monday which is a sore point for some. Young brumbies kept pouring their Bacardi Breezers onto themselves to “give george a drink”. They went so far as to invite members of the public to “give George a drink” and even offered to buy us drinks so we could help out. It wasn’t just the younger players wearing the shirt, Mortlock and Larkham were also wearing them (but not pouring drinks over themselves deliberately as far as I noticed).

While at times it felt a bit like swimming with sharks being in the same room as so many very large, very drunk and boisterous men I have to say they were no trouble at all and pretty good blokes. Aside from offering to buy drinks for bloggers they actually swept up in the back room after themselves. A class act.

Oh and if you want to drink like a Brumbie (at least late on Mad Monday) you need a table covered in Breezers and “jam donuts”. A jam donut is a shot of chambourd with a lime and sugar rim and a splash of baileys floated over the top.

That thing with the George t shirts is a hoot. I miss creative drunken antics with one’s sporting club. That particular antic is a pearler.

Well, it’s not as though they are rugby league players. 🙂

And you should see the press gallery once they get their reports to bed.

It’s not just sportsmen & women, I imagine a lot of the Treasury staff will be partying pretty hard tonight.

beer tastes the best when you are physically exhausted.

& they’ve just finished a long, hard season. Constant training, playing, all the pressure. Same for everyone really…..I’ve been known to join in on a big night out on completion of a big project at work.

well they seemed to be having a lot of fun and weren’t hurting anyone.

cabbage 9:09 am 08 May 07

Why do you suppose sportsmen & women have to get excessively drunk after matches. I am not referring to the Brumbies in particular but to sports people in general.

Thanks to Mark Gerrard for bringing me into the photo, hope you had a good night fellas, and good luck for next year
