With all the sport being put on hold for the foreseeable future, there is nothing but replays and reruns to fill the void left.
Liam: How are you going with the lack of sport being played at the moment mate
Speedy: It is driving me up the wall. It's just repeat after repeat. They are playing everything from the Creet Cup that use to be played out at Hillston to the test matches. I can tell you who bowled in 1963 and took the last wicket between Australia vs England.
Liam: They are making a living of blasts from the past.
Speedy: It's the same with the League and the Aussie Rules, and then they have the golf channel showing all the major championships. I don't mind watching those ones. You have some of the cricket that you haven't seen in a while then they will switch to the Big Bash from this year, and you get game after game of that.
Liam: I can imagine they are well and truly getting their money's worth out of it.
Speedy: The trouble is the commentators. Can we have Richie Benaud back, please? Blokes like Bill Lawry and even Ian Chappell wasn't too bad. You could watch the game, and you didn't mind the way they were commentating, but these new breed are all experts and approach it entirely differently.
Liam: There are some who drive me up the wall. There is one in particular who was a handy leg spinner but makes an awful commentator. Finds one topic and just talks about it for the entire time he is on air. The one thing I do like is the old Ashes tests whether we win or not I always like watching those.
Speedy: Well, we all love beating the Poms, especially in cricket. Doesn't matter what format it is. It is a bit of a two-way street really watching these replays. It is very nostalgic when you think of the old days. It does bring back memories from me it might not for the younger generation like yourself. I just hope in this modern world of ours with the technology that we have we are able to find a cure sooner rather than later.
Liam: The sooner we can get through this difficult time, the better it will be for everyone. Have a bit of live sport on TV and then spending the weekends watching the local teams battle it out. Weekends around here can be tiring, but I'm missing that now I can tell you that much.
Speedy: With all the pubs and clubs being shut I'm missing spending time with my mates at the Northside on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Liam: And I'm sure those boys are missing you as well mate. It's a shame the AFL season didn't kick along one week longer because your Bombers and my Swans were looking good.
Speedy: We will just have to wait and see what happens.
