What’s The Dumbest Thing Ronnie Blakey Has Said On Air?
Beach Chair: Jack Freestone’s candid interview with Mr Blakey.
We’re back with another “Beach Chair” episode, direct from the divine shores of Namotu. This time your pals at Stab and Corona sat world tour heartthrob, Jack Freestone next to webcast hunk, Rondog Blakey for a battle of looks….and wits.
During a “Freaky Friday” reversal Lindsey Lohan’d be proud of, Jack revealed Ronnie’s real name, his preferred tour venues, the reality of surfing Chopes during a CT event, the importance of opinion and his most embarrassing moment involving an Adrian Buchan heat. It’s a window into the life of the commentary team, or as Ronnie describes them, the “bottom feeders” of the tour.
Now, we did assist Mr Freestone with that scribbled notepad of questions you see occasionally come into frame, however, we’ll be the first to admit that gent from the Gold Coast has a knack in this game.
