Saverio Rocca at Norfland's cinema.

Was on a date.. lining up for popcorn and choc tops and that.. turn around.. big Sav lining up behind me.. I said.. hi Sav.. he said.. hi back.. and that was basically it and that.. on the inside.. I was happy as a dog with 2 tails to see him and that.. kinda like the feeling you get when you're ripping donuts.. burning rubber and that.. like sick man.. wanted an autograph a selfie a chat with him and that.. but played it cool on the outside.. like i was decelerating and that.. like shifting the gears downwards and that.. didn't wanna stuff up my date and that sort of a thing.

Date went well.

Shaun Hampson and Megan Gale just walked into the lounge I’m in at Melbourne airport.

They have their kids in tow so they’re being boring.

I on the other hand am getting tanked on the pour it yourself booze. Bottoms up.

Just spotted Jordan De Goey at a Virgin departure gate at Melbourne airport.

Was with a couple of other pies players in didn't recognise.

No hats in sight.

Totally unremarkable occurrence.

At stop 28 waiting for the G20 or G21.
Kim Koster drove past and glanced at me.
The 200 slowed down to pick me up but I waved it on.

Did you turn down the lights and squint real hard and pretend it was Sav later when you were entertaining your date at home?

Saw Sam Draper at Crown Casino last night shortly after the game finished and he walked past while we were waiting for food. He was wearing a nice mint green shirt and was with someone who I presume was his partner.

Max King at a movie theatre in Geelong of all places, seen him walk past with his girlfriend after the film. He took his rubbish from his seat to the bin, bit in that I reckon.

Bumped in to Jordan De Goey in Bali last week. He was playing chess at an old folks home with one of the residents.

Saw Aaron Francis at crown metropol a few weeks ago.

He was coming out of the lift as we were going in. He's taller than I expected. Very skinny too. Also - not 100% sure it was him, probably more like 90%.

Cricket one but here goes.

In the 90s we saw Richie Benaud walking out of the NCG after a mercantile metal cup game. He said 'G'day boys'

My brothers friend said 'is that the cream the bone the white the off white the ivory or the bage. Which I'm sure no on had ever asked him before.

Richie didn't reply and walked off

Very similar one with Tony Greig during a stinking hot test at the gabba early 90s.
He was walking out wearing a silly panama hat, being surprisingly tall, with drunk people yelling out things like "that's a bit harsh" at him.
He completely ignored them and slowly walked up the hill past the German club.

Could very well have been Andrew Phillips.

Ducked into aldi at Doncaster to buy some lunch whilst in the area for work. Literally bumped into Warwick Caper as I was walking in and he was walking out.

Can confirm that he bought an aldi bag and on-top sat a 24 pack of party pies. Was obviously intending on having a party, hence the party pies.

Did he take it at its highest point?
When I threw my popcorn at his head because all 2.05m of him blocked the screen? Yeah, he did!

Didn’t stick around for the post cutscene credits though, which given it was a Marvel movie I thought was quite strange.
