30 BEERS FOR 30 YEARS STORIES

There's No Place Like Home

On December 10, 2013, Sotheby's London office auctioned off what could be considered the most important historical document in sports history - Seve Hemosteros' original World Series of Golf blueprint, drawn up at Robo Mediate's Macleay Place residence over a few drinks on Boxing Day, 1988.  This is the story of one man's fanatical quest to win back this seminal artifact at auction and bring the document home to Earlwood where Hemosteros was born and raised.  25 years after he persoanlly witnessed the blueprint's creation, Mediate inspired a group of wealthy benefactors to dream his dream and take a few shares in a couple of greyhounds as well.

The Prince Of Profanity

Reader discretion is recommended - this story contains frequent coarse language.
 
The young visco*#t rescued f*#m a post-apocalyptic Warsaw became famous in his adopted country when, at the age of 5, the first English words he uttered both contained four-letters, one beginning with F and the other beginning with C.  And well over half a century later, it's hard to discern even a slight expansion to the now Flemington Fruit Markets f*#klift driver's vocabulary.  WTF!!

Small Potatoes: Who Killed The Presidents Cup?

A bold challenge, a fearless experiment and ultimately, a spectacular failure.  In 1999 a new event challenged the establishment's cosy duopoly, the World Series and Match Play Championship, but after a promising start at North Ryde and final round at Eastlakes less than a decade later, The Presidents Cup disappeared from the ESG&EC sporting calendar.

Hit 'Em Hard - Balls, Babes and Booze

We remember the blonde mullet, a cigarette glued to the lips and those enormous fairway splitting drives that propelled him to victory at the 1995 World Series.  We knew Big Jack Daly as much for those larrikin traits as for the constant drinking, womanising and swearing, mostly done off the course, that forced him into rehabilitation and a premature sporting retirement.

Four 'Dog' Days In November

The streak began when he defeated hot shot 6th seed Kenny Crenshaw 3 & 1 in the Round of 16.  A week later, Heckle Sunday, he beat the favoured Tubby Waldorf 2 & 1.  The following Friday he saw off the well-fancied Hunter Meehan 5 & 3.  In the final match he defied the odds to beat Peard Fulke 3 & 1.  Was it skill, good fortune or an old-fashioned and carefuly orchestrated betting coup that turned the perennial underdog, Bourkie Baird, into the 2013 Match Play Champion?

Catholics vs. Convicts

Those few words printed in jest on a t-shirt by an savvy and opportunistic member took an already bitter rivalry and lit a blazing fire under it.  In October 1994, Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson (Christian Brothers) battled Seve Hemosteros (Canterbury High) to the death in arguably one of the greatest games in Match Play history.  It was sheer determination vs. swagger, Irish Catholic vs. Protestant, lowly public servant vs. corporate heavyweight.  The outcome shocked the sporting world and it's taken nearly 25 years for the players to come together and tell their stories.

Silly Little Game

Few of the thousands of players who make up today's multi-million dollar Earlwood Euchre industry know anything about the game's origins, nor do they pay any respect and, more importantly, dividends to it's founders.  That's about to change.  The ESG&EC, a joint custodian of the game, has engaged one of the country's greatest strategic and legal minds, Tack Nicklaus QC, to protect it's commercial interests.

I Hate Tubby Waldorf

He had money, butchery smarts, a reverse golf grip and became the first player to achieve the club's coveted home and away double, winning the 1990 Match Play Championship and the 2002 World Series.  So why has Tubby Waldorf been disliked so intensely, by so many, for so long?  Maybe it's the much maligned Saturday morning horse tips or a wardrobe of striped shirts.  But sometimes, perception isn't reality.

Dick Faldo - All By Himself

He was The Beatles of golf - a handsome, charismatic and slender figure from Engadine who worked wonders with the ball and thrilled galleries wherever he went.  But Dick Faldo was also the lead in a Shakespearean tragedy fuelled by alcohol and the fading memories of old sexual conquests.  We'll talk with the neigbours who nailed a bottle opener to their wooden fence to facilitate his afternoon drinking sessions and meet the only woman from the 'Lender of Last Resort' who spurned his advances - his sister - and ask her the big question:  Does she now regret that rash decision?

You Don't Know Boo Boo

He's someone who played two sports professionally - golf and soccer.  When speaking to others about him, I noticed something I'd never experienced before.  At the mere mention of his name, people either immediately lit up in excitement or fell over laughing.  Boo Boo's story isn't really a sports story, it's a superhero story.  A superhero who broke his thumb shaking hands before an over 45's game in the Sutherland Shire minor leagues and, as a result, signed on as a marquee player with Sydney FC and became the face of Nike's landmark ad campaign, "You Don't Know Boo Boo".
