  • 87 - The Fabulous Frank Worthington

    Unfortunately, we can't bring you Fine Cotton Part Two today, we explain why in this pod, but it will be arriving soon. 

    Instead, we present Frank Worthington, one of the wild men of English Football in the 1970s.

    A friend of George Best, he once famously failed a medical at Liverpool because he went on a bender the week before. 

    What follows is a wild ride of women, booze, gambling and some amazing football.

  • 86 - The Fine Cotton Affair - Part 1

    We are back, and with the most requested topic we've ever had.

    In Australia, the two most famous racehorses are Fine Cotton and Phar Lap but for opposite reasons. 

    When a handful of colourful racing types attempted to swap the poor horse Fine Cotton, for the much faster Dashing Solitaire, it all seemed so easy.

    What followed was an inept, sometimes tragic, sometimes hilarious slow-moving disaster, with a mystery still at the heart of it.

    We are doing two live Sports Bizarre shows on in Melbourne in February at the Corner Hotel. The first show is sold out and there’s only a few left for the second night. You can buy tickets here:

    Tuesday 27th February

    We are kicking off at the Corner Hotel because it’s a two minute walk from Mick’s house, but don’t worry if you’re not in Victoria, we will be announcing more dates in the near future.

    Bryan discusses his beloved Texas Longhorns and how millions of dollars are poured into high school teams.

    They also look at the Houston Oilers, the USFL’s San Antonio Gunslingers and why in Texas, the three Fs, Faith, Family and Football are so big.
