Sports Fever! S01E10 Review

Never push the button.

They did it! They can’t of! They really did it! They grew up! Santo, Sam and Ed went all golden ticker-tape for their 100th series finale episode of Sports Fever! Primed with their Scarlett Butternut Brain Snaps, Santo Cilauro, Sam Pang and Ed Kavalee summarised the world of the oblong and round footballs and an early submission of Dive Dive Dive! After a quick ad break, the Aussie cricket fans were more than excited while the Windies fans danced on with highlights of the English cricket fans admiring the good cross-section of birds on the ground.

Sam showed the exciting golf tournament, while the team briefly ‘crossed the ditch’ to get an update of the A League. Special guest Trevor Marmalade reported on the Dubai World Cup and all things horse racing around the world, especially the story of the “horse that could” and just didn’t stop. The horse not stopping, that is – not Trevor.

Black bands were worn in respect after the death of Darts champion Jocky Wilson, who, passing away at the age of 62, was disappointed that diabetes made him stop drinking during the game. We Watched It So You Didn’t Have To received an entry from Ten Pin Bowling that Ed sat down to watch… with tender love making demonstrated to the special ball, especially if you yell “Who do you think you are? I am!”. A pilot episode for Santo, Sam and Ed’s new show Come Off It was shown with some terrific sizzle. Will it have enough traction though? Come off it!!

Many fumble and tumble entries of Silky Skills as always, while Ed spoke to Bazza and Dave, supporters of the Australian Cricket team, who must share the same DNA as Santo and Sam – with happy wives in tow. With a delightful Pfister reference for Bin Night, too many puns used for a Sicilian Open that justified Santo’s bin failures for the year.

Good news though – Santo did mention that Santo, Sam & Ed’s Sports Fever! will return quicker than you can say shuszesa… shurshaesha.. umm.. come back as soon as possible!

Until then: interact with the team on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and catch what you can on Plus7 before it’s gone.


  1. If Sports Fever does come back, is there really room for two funny sports panel shows, or has Before the Game already cornered that market?
