The Fortune Feed: The Latest Sports, Entertainment, and Hot Topics

The Fortune Feed – Feb. 19-25

 

G’day, your mate Joe Fortune is here with my ‘Week in Review’ for 19th Feb – 25th Feb 2024. There’s been a bit going on with the Taylor Swift’s Eras tour continuing, along with a mankini hitting the headlines, so here’s the latest on hot topics, Aussie sports, and entertainment news.

 

Rose in Bloom

Eventing and Show Jumping doesn’t often hit the news, so it’s been a surprise to see three-time Olympic equestrian rider Shane Rose in the spotlight. At a competition last week Shane Rose decided to bring some colour to the event and competed in a Duffman beer suit and a gorilla suit, but it was his mankini which caused him issues. A spectator didn’t like what she saw and complained about the Aussie wearing the skimpy item, known around the world due to it being in the film Borat. Jeez, thankfully sense has prevailed following an investigation as Rose was cleared and is all good to head to the Olympics later this year, no doubt with a few more clothes on!

 

TayTay Boom

After all the hype about Taylor Swift’s concerts in Australia it looks like it’s given the economy a massive boost of over $2billion – spend it wisely, Albo! After fans filled the MCG for 3 nights Tay Tay has gone on to not only fill up the Accor Stadium but had thousands of Swifties headed to Homebush to buy themselves plenty of merch before then just hanging out and listening to their hero from outside the venue.

Whilst the US singer might not have performed in Canberra, that didn’t mean she didn’t have an impact there last week as on Friday, the appropriately named racehorse TayTay Bay won at Thoroughbred Park giving the local punters a nice little fill up.

 

Always look on the Brightside of Life

As we head into Autumn, the top thoroughbreds are coming back into action, and this past weekend we saw some of the best horses going about their business. Wow, how bloody good did Mr Brightside look in the Futurity Stakes at Caulfield… After 2 wins from 2 this season, he’s well fancied to make it 3 in the All-Star Mile next month.

Over in the UK, there was a controversial shock result as the Pom’s team Wigan beat Penrith 16-14 in the annual World Club Challenge. With the Warriors being awarded a dodgy try and the Panthers denied one, let’s just say that home advantage helped!

The Fortune Feed: February 12-18

 

How are you all going… Joe Fortune back with my latest ‘Week in Review’ for 12th Feb – 18th Feb 2024. There’s been plenty going on over the past week, so just in case you missed out, here’s your easy, quick, and unmissable summary on the latest hot topics, Aussie sports, and entertainment news.

 

Touch-Down Under

The week kicked off in Vegas with Super Bowl 58, and whilst it wasn’t a high scoring match the drama didn’t disappoint as Kansas City Chiefs scored a touchdown in the last second of overtime. Taylor Swift didn’t take too long to head down and join her boyfriend Travis Kelce on the pitch to celebrate the historic win.  But she couldn’t hang around and party for too long as fans in Melbourne were ready and waiting to enjoy the start of Swift’s Eras tour in Australia, which got underway last week at the MCG.

Talking of musicians in Aus, it’s been a while, but the mighty Simple Minds have continued their latest tour down under. Last week saw the band perform in Melbourne as well as heading to Adelaide and then to the Gold Coast. I think most of you can guess which gig I’d prefer to be at!

 

Albo’s Valentine Yay

Who needs to be watching MAFS when your PM delivers you the real thing? On Valentine’s Day Albo proposed to his partner Jodie Haydon, who said yes! There is no indication on when or where the wedding will be, but I reckon I can be sure that your mate Joe will not be getting an invite.

Jeez, he wasn’t the only poli to be in the news this last week. What about former National’s leader Barnaby Joyce? Now, I don’t mind having a few cold ones but… to finish up on a public footpath in the middle of Canberra lying on your back and swearing away on a school night isn’t a good look. Fair play though, as he seemed to have made a quick recovery, the next day he was fronting up and answering questions from the media. Apparently, it was his prescription medication that was to blame…

 

Hitting Well Hard

If you blinked, you missed it, as Glenn Maxwell walloped the fastest t20 international century in Australia with what can only be described as a bloody awesome innings at the Adelaide Oval. Maxy was simply unstoppable as he brought up his ton in just 50 balls, and yeah, it goes without saying that the Aussies won the match against the Windies.

The Fortune Feed: February 5-11

 

How are you going, punters? Joe Fortune here with my latest ‘Week in Review’ for 5th Feb – 11th Feb 2024.  If you’ve not read my feed before, where have you been? This is your easy, quick, and unmissable summary on the latest hot topics, Aussie sports, and entertainment news.

 

Smiley Kylie

Early last week, all eyes were on the Grammys where it was business as usual for Taylor Swift as she became the first four-time winner of the Album of the Year. But it’s elsewhere that us Aussies have something to smile about. The ever-youthful Kylie Minogue won her second Grammy Award, some two decades after her first one. Our Aussie superstar claimed the award for ‘Best Pop Dance Recording’ for her hit ‘Padam Padam’. Also the former Mrs Liam Hemsworth, known to the world as Miley Cyrus, won her first ever Grammy, I don’t think us Aussies can claim that one as our own.

 

Ange in the Pool?

EPL fans won’t have missed the news that Jurgen Klopp will be leaving Liverpool at the end of the season. This sudden announcement continues to leave the media speculating on who will take over, and one name that keeps appearing is big Ange Postecoglou. The Aussie has quickly been embraced by the Spurs’ fans as one of their own, but as a childhood Liverpool fan, rumours persist that he is on the shortlist to leave London and head north at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, in the NRL, there is some relief as the teams heading to Vegas for the season opener have ticked all the right boxes with officials at the US Embassy. I can confirm that all players have finally got their visas to enter the country. Jeez, for a while, it looked like the ‘Vegas Dozen’ weren’t going to be allowed into the US for the groundbreaking matches in a couple of weeks’ time.

 

TV is Hotting Up

As we head into Autumn, the TV wars hot up again, and MAFS is back with its usual drama. Both Jack and Timothy lying about sex – strewth there’s a surprise. But don’t worry, as Cassandra and Tristan are going alright so far! Just quietly, I’m relieved that elsewhere, Andy Lee has returned with his merry crew of celebs as the latest season of The Hundred has started. It’s great that we get to see what real Aussies thoughts are without tears and tantrums.

The Fortune Feed: January 29-February 4

 

I’m back punters! Joe Fortune here with my latest ‘Week in Review’ for 29th Jan – 4th Feb 2024. The summer holidays might be over, but there’s still plenty going on as we head into Autumn. So here’s my quick catch up on all the latest hot topics, Aussie sports, and entertainment news.

 

Better Than Sex

Jeez, it’s back again, and Married At First Sight, known by viewers as MAFS, is delivering more tears and tantrums along with all the weddings, bombshells, and dinner parties. Fans of the show won’t be disappointed this time round, as food-loving, party girl Lauren has already set the scene and created plenty of headlines. She’s made a strong claim to any future husband that her homemade schnitty is better than a certain type of sex! Having been set up with Richard, the oldest person ever to be on the show, this is definitely one partnership viewers will be watching with big interest.

Strewth, that’s all a bit much for mine, so I’ll level you; this is more my sort of TV. After years of enjoying the Pommie version of Tipping Point, we now have our own Aussie version hosted by Todd Woodbridge. The new show launched last week, and it seems like the former tennis player has been given an unlimited budget to tempt players to go for the jackpot. There’s plenty of extra cash and holidays being offered up and with an audience encouraging players to gamble, it certainly gets my vote.

 

Windies become Lose-ies

After shocking the Aussies at the Gabba in the final test match, the West Indies couldn’t conjure up another surprise as Australia showed its dominance in the ODI series. In game 1 at the MCG, it was Xavier Bartlett taking 4 wickets along with Steve Smith’s unbeaten 79 that saw the Aussies cruise to victory.

Then at the SCG, it was the ‘Sean Abbott Show’ as the all-rounder smashed 69 runs, took 3 wickets, and claimed 2 catches. This standout performance helped the Aussies win by 83 runs and claim the series with one match to play in the best of three.

 

Sizzling in Autumn

Bugger, just as most of our Aussie holidays were coming to an end, then mercury decides to shoot up. El Nino, that’s the hot weather, has been predicted to stick around until well into April, so don’t put your suncream or caps away just yet!

The Fortune Feed: January 22-28th

 

Joe Fortune back with you again delivering my latest ‘Week in Review’ for 22nd – 28th January 2024. Here’s my quick and easy to read review with all the latest Aussie sports and entertainment news, hot topics, and other fair dinkum, need-to-know stories.

 

Sydney gets Bashed by the Heat

The new format BBL ended on Wednesday night where we saw the Sydney Sixers get thumped by the Brisbane Heat at the SCG to win BBL13. It was the Heat’s second win in the tournament.

KAYO saw record levels of streaming this season with the most watched moment of the regular season being Aaron Finch’s final match between his side Melbourne Renegades against the Melbourne Stars.

 

Other cricket news saw the Aussie Men’s team lose the second and final Test Match of the series against the West Indies at the Gabba. In one of the biggest shocks in recent Test Match Cricket the Windies pulled off a surprising 8 run win to level the series 1-1 against all the odds.

 

Sinner Sinner Carrot Dinner!

What a couple of weeks of tennis we’ve been treated to in Melbourne, in the blink of an eye the Aussie Open has been and gone as Jannick Sinner overcame the 10 times champ Novak Djokovic in the semis before landing his first Grand Slam win in a five-set thriller against Daniil Medvedev in the Men’s Final. Elsewhere Aryna Sabalenka destroyed all before her as she retained the Women’s Open title in stunning style. The Belarusian was in a league of her own, winning the Aussie Open without dropping a set.

 

Barbie Gets Busted

Despite the enormous box office success Aussie superstar Margot Robbie has been surprisingly snubbed for a nomination in her role as Barbie in the leading actress category at this year’s Oscars. But don’t feel too bad as we’ve got some more winners to toast…

 

Doja Cat Dominates

The time-honoured Triple J’s Hottest 100 was taken out this year by the bookmakers’ fave Doja Cat with her single Paint the Town Red. The US rapper saw off Melbourne-born G Flip who finished in second spot with their hit The Worst Person Alive. The other winner announced over the weekend was the Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular Top 100, known as GABS. This year the NSW brewery Mountain Culture with its Status Quo Pale Ale retained its position as the top tipple ahead of Queensland’s Balter Brewery with its XPA and the Canberra-based brewery Bentspoke with their Crankshaft IPA.

The Fortune Feed – January 15-21st

 

G’day, how are you going? Joe Fortune here bringing you my ‘Week in Review’ for 15th – 21st January 2024 with a quick look at the latest Aussie entertainment news, hot topics, and an update on how my mate J Webby has been going.

 

Sport

Week 1 of the Australian Open tennis saw Alex di Minaur leading the way for us Aussies in reaching Round 4 before losing out in a thriller to the charismatic fifth seed Rublev. Elsewhere despite a couple of tricky opening rounds Novak Djokovic is into the quarter finals as he continues his quest for an 11th title.

Over in the Women’s Singles, the shock of week 1 came when the world number one, Iga Swiatek, was knocked out in round 3 leaving the draw wide open. As week 2 gets underway both Gauff and last year’s winner Sabalenka are looking good, and I reckon the conqueror from their potential semi-final clash might well lift the trophy. Don’t forget you can enjoy all the action on Channel 9 and STAN Sports.

After all the talk about who stole David Warner’s Baggy Green Cap it’s been nice to be focusing on how Steve Smith would go as an opening batter against the West Indies. The jury is still out for mine, but after a thumping 10 wicket victory it was a good week for the Aussie team, let’s hope for more of the same in Brisbane later this week.

 

Entertainment News

At the Emmy Awards there was Aussie joy as Sarah Snook went better than her two previous nominations and won the outstanding leading actress for her role as Shiv Roy in Succession. In other news, the Australian-made and recently released Boy Swallows Universe has quickly become a global phenomenon on Netflix, sure it’s a bit weird but certainly worth giving it a watch.

 

Hot Topic of The Week

The New York Times has just listed it’s top 52 spots to visit in 2024 and it’s great to see two places in our great country featuring as both Tassie and Brisbane get on the coveted list… you beauties!

 

J Webby Can Eat Update

I’ve given my mate J Webby a couple of challenges recently whilst he is holidaying in Hawaii. First up see how he goes try to eat a dozen Malasadas and if that doesn’t fill him up I then gave him 12 Musubis to try and munch his way through. Jeez, he has got some appetite that’s for sure!
