    Seen two, Jimmy Maloney in a hotel elevator in his roosters days, I said whatsup Jimmy and he said hows it going. Bever Menzies in a suit in Sydney CBD, surprisingly no head gear,

    A work mate saw Brad Clyde in a elevator in the Sydney CBD this week but didnt say anything to him. This guy is a life long raiders fan and still upset over the GF yet did not say booo to one of his idols. Sad...

    The last time I say Spud Carroll was about 10 years ago at a Southern Districts rugby union game
    He was complaining that he had to pay a $10 entry fee

    Not sure if this is the best place for this,

    But in 2006 I was in a band and we had a gig at a pub in Lithgow. Weird place and weird gig. Was quiet early but late that night we drew a massive crowd and it was a good gig and the manager of the pub was really happy. During one of the breaks between sets the manager introduces all of the band to his mate. It was David Peachey. Peach had been there watching the local group Grand Final and he was blind drunk but I hasten to add, a nice guy and well behaved. At the time it didnt really strike me as strange because my memory was that Peachey had a lot of injuries that year and I assumed he was injured and out.

    Gig finishes at 2am and the manager pours Peach into a cab (at Lithgow) and we all pack up and crash asleep at the pub. In the morning I wake up, drive back to Sydney, pick up my old man and go to Leichhardt to watch Tigers v Souffs. I am amazed when I open the Big League and see Peachey, D. next to the number 1. I say to my Dad there is no way Peachey is playing today and tell him what happened. Sure as hell Peachey runs onto the field.

    Tigers win the game 52-18 but I have to say Peachey was the best player in a Souffs jersey.

    I have no doubt its probably me previously. Ive not been sure if I posted it previously because Ive always worried a little about being defamatory, but as I stress he was perfectly well behaved.

    Paul Vaughan with his wife and kid, at a Wiggles concert recently. The Wiggles not only spotted him, they name-checked him in a song! Gotta love the Wiggles.

    Todd Carney buying Cold Rock at The Entrance a few days ago.

    Walked pass Jonathan Thurston in CBD outside a hotel during the this year NRL Finals promo. We locked eyes for 2s but being good nrl fan I didn't heckle/bother him.
