This week Benny started up a Shiva Facebook Chat which has been inundated with Solitare, Snake, Basketball and the game where you keep a football off the bottom of the screen. As that venture has turned people away, lets remember what we’re actually here for - ALMIGHTY SHIVA! This week we announce the winner of the Mark Santillo Trophy for Shiva Musical Excellence, speak to the last remaining undefeated coach, give an important community service announcement and try to cheer BennyMacca up as we launch into another week of the SHIVA BLAST!
12 entrants have stepped up to win the Mark Santillo trophy for Shiva Musical Excellence. Who wins? You decide. Listen to the songs and cast your vote in the Facebook group. A huge thank you again to all who put in the effort and took the time to tribute. Shiva is in your debt.
After a week apart, it’s a beautiful reunion this week as both boys are celebrating wins. A new segment is introduced which is as good a reason as any for a fresh opener. Ant got his night’s wrong, so his deadpan reactions to my sense of humour will have to wait until tomorrow’s special edition. We look at close leagues, the lowest Shiva score ever, the impending finals and get a compliment from an unlikely source in this weeks, all new SHIVA BLAST
Much to the delight of Tim Cordner, we are Damonless this week, but we have McRath back to help take you through a packed show . We welcome the return of Shiva matches, review the round table discussion, and we have probably the craziest ants fantasy slant of them all. That and much much more, on this edition of the shiva blast!
Well what do they say about best laid plans? I’m not really sure but sometimes they don’t work out. The Shiva Roundtable has been remodelled and instead we bring to you tonight just a taste of what you usually get - but really, you don’t pay for this podcast so suck it up and enjoy your dregs! We find time for headlines, Benny’s trip to Vatican City and for my inarticulate call to arms on this somewhat shortened but not really SHIVA BLAST!
In this Shiva bye round, we open our doors to the Shiva community. It’s time to yank some new blood into the spotlight and in doing so, discover what’s going on in and around the leagues. The podcast has been hit with absentees, BennyMacca’s out and Ant Wingard took such a large pause between thoughts that we’ll catch up with him next week. To fill in we welcome back a seasoned fill-in co-host as we undertake another episode of the SHIVA BLAST
* Apologies for some audio inconsistencies during the episode. Also didn’t shut off notifications so there’s some message chimes that show up throughout.
10 rounds down and it’s time to draw breath, or drown your sorrows. Either way we have the next 3 weeks to actually watch football and not count every single point that your players do or don't score! We have the drunkest tee off yet, plenty of stats to pour through, Ant’s dark horse targets for trade targetting and a reminder of Mark Santillo’s symphony all on this week’s SHIVA BLAST
Shiva is a fickle bitch and after the many hits taken this year, a one point loss might have just tipped one of us over the edge. There’s plenty of headlines to cover, Ant steps up his game yet again and Bailey Rice - there’s some context coming for that later. Finally, a community service announcement, remember that if you want to Tee Off, we want to hear your verbal rage, or else you have to put up with our interpretation of your words. The ball is in your court. All that before the last pre-bye round on the Shiva Blast!
Patch had one out of the box, BennyMacca swindled Coach Chirpa, Ant Wingard has had enough of the NEAFL knockers and Tim Marsh obviously thinks Ben should be in Star Wars. It’s a bumper edition of the Blast as we prepare to take a few hits to our teams with a mini-bye and with only 2 rounds to go until the mid-season break, snagging an extra win is now even more important. We cover it all as we serve up another helping of the SHIVA BLAST!
When you decide to do a fantasy podcast you hope that you’ll bring some positive energy into it with some wisdom to share - unfortunately we are fucking light years away from that this year. So bring on the pained voices and the unnecessary slights on competitors. To bring some more class to proceedings Ant Wingard shares the player he thinks might take people to Shiva glory, Tim Marsh hosts another edition of The Blog Place and much much more on the latest SHIVA BLAST
