One show down, another 40 odd to go!
Things couldn't have gone much better on Saturday, but we were helped in a large part by some great guests.
After such a long break there's always a bit of ring rust. Both Disco Dave and Rocket were running around like headless chickens and with only half their clobber on just seconds before they were supposed to be on screen for Redknapp or Blackmore... and they weren't the only ones.
Still, we avoided any major disasters, so that's something. Next comes the difficult second show (a bit like a second album... but not a lot), but we've already pencilled in a huge guest in every sense of the word; NBA star Ron Artest!
He might play at 'small' forward but at 6ft 7in he's anything but! In fact that makes him even taller than the leggiest one out of all of us... Lavvers, and that's saying something!
I really want to get a tortoise now! They're so cute. I even googled it when I got home and I found some baby ones.
Quotes of the week
We also hear that the LA Lakers star is not someone who you want to get on the wrong side of... if you want to know what we mean, google 'The Malice at the Palace'!
Trev even spotted him taking in a bit of WWE action at SummerSlam! What Trev was doing watching men in leotards jumping around on top of each other is a whole other question...
Back to last week and despite having a sofa filled with the likes of Marcus Hahnemann, Kasabian and the boys from The Inbetweeners, the stars of the show were the two tortoises used in Redknapp or Blackmore... at least in Lisa's eyes.
"I really want to get a tortoise now! They're so cute. I even googled it when I got home and I found some baby ones!"
Buying baby tortoises off the internet... what could go wrong?!
Aside from tortoises, Tuesday's meeting was dominated by two goalkeepers who made very different starts to their Premier League careers.
On the one hand we were all massively impressed with Swansea new boy Michel Vorm who played brilliantly against Man City, despite picking the ball out of the back of his net four times.
The Dutchman made 11 saves in the game according to James and Baby Elvis, which is more than any other 'keeper managed in a Premier League game last season.
David de Gea, meanwhile, was getting goalkeeping lessons from Phil Jones and Anderson after Man Utd's 2-1 win at West Brom! It's early days in his Old Trafford career and we're sure he'll come good, but he looks like he could do with getting on the weights!
If he does choose to hit the gym our own resident shot-stopper Bobbie will happily give him a few tips after he told us all about his new gym regime.
"I've started a new program to bulk up, it's called 'go heavy, go hard'! "
Now usually when players bulk up there's always a concern they might lose a bit of speed and agility, but clearly Bobbie isn't concerned after he compared some of his saves to Vorm's at the City of Manchester Stadium:
"He actually reminds me a lot of me, I make some great saves at 5-aside!" he said with tongue in cheek... at least we hope it was with tongue in cheek. Either that or those protein shakes are going to his head...
Elsewhere, Baby Evils was visibly hangin' on Tuesday after returning from a stag-do in Budapest. The highlight of which (from what we could work out) was getting half the plane to help him look for his iPhone, before discovering it in the toilet.
And finally, a happy and momentous day in the Rocket household after he became an uncle for the first time!
Congratulations uncle Rock, we're sure he'll be looking up to you for years to come... or at least until he hits puberty!
See you on Saturday!
