    Maybe they were the rest of the seven dwarves.

    I wouldn't call it mundane, but I worked with Charlie Saab for a few years. Great guy.

    More mundane though was a minor road rage incident with Kane Cleal on one of those narrow streets at the back of Brookvale Oval years ago. Claimed he had right of way judging by his one finger salute to me.

    While on the topic on who hit on who, my wife claimed that she was hit on by Trevor Gillmeister whilst she was holidaying on the Gold Coast. It was before we met, probably around the late 90s.

    Justin Hodges when he just came back to Bris next to me at Subway. He was looking at me as if wanting to be recognised but I hated him at the time lol. I thought he was quite tall but fairy small for a footballer. Also saw him 5 years later having a darb at South Bank.

    Leon Bott on the bus to uni - his calves were the size of my thighs

    Clinton Shifcofske (?) also at uni, he also had massive calves

    Not a player but I saw Lincoln Lewis trying on shoes at a store yesterday.

    Luke Priddis came to our house once. He is a Catholic and his child was in the same group as my youngest sister preparing for their Confirmation.

    I don't think you can get much more mundane than that.

    Back in the late 90's I was at a mate's birthday party at some pub in King's Cross. He knew Jimmy Dymock and Soloman Haumono and they were there too. Also, Jacin Sinclair was there from memory...

    It was probably the first pub I'd been to where they gave you your change on those little plates, with the subtle message to leave a tip.... I was watching Dymock and I noticed he wasn't leaving any tips, so I thought, if that merkin who was getting paid a king's ransom during the ARL/Super League war isn't leaving a tip then I sure as shit ain't going to leave one!!

    the big 3 plus that other f**ker IBM has never heard of were getting a heap from the ARL and Parra

    Reservoir Dogs makes an excellent argument on why you shouldn't tip

    Coming to think of it, is mundaneness a word?

    While living in Bundaberg a few years back...

    Had many a beer with Ken Nagas at the Western Suburbs Leagues Club. Top bloke and very quiet.

    Chris Sandow decided to stand next to me at Slater Oval while watch his brother play Q-Cup for the Seagulls. I would have had to bend over to rest my chin on his head. Shortest first grader I've seen since Johnny Kolc of the Eels.

    At the same game, Dave Taylor huffed and puffed his way through the first ten minutes before staggering off. He staggered past me just before half time to return to the field. I expected some giant but quite short. It was his bulk that surprised me - a taller version of Les Boyd in build.

    A friend used to live next to Tony archer. Went over to a BBQ once and his family were there. Pretty solid guy tbh, although chose tomato over BBQ for his sausage sanga

    Paul Vautin at the Roundabout Hotel, Hurstville not long after he retired from the Roosters. I asked him for his opinion of Graham Lowe. He wasn't too impressed.

    Fair play to the girl. Her moot would've never recovered.

    Saw hindmarsh and cayless at the ettamogah one night having dinner. Hindmarsh walked past with two big plates of food and I watched him sit down and demolish them both

    Must have been a cheat day.

    Saw Shane Webcke and a few other Broncos staggering around Seven Hills area a day or two after the GF win in 2006. Was about 7am on my way to work

    Been a looooong time since I heard it referred to as that. Loving the nostalgia in this thread.

    Sat with the Parra players for a trial at Carrara during the pre-game. Paul Green and a few others were putting shit on Hindmarsh about his eating/fat ass and teasing him for being 'Smithys' pet
