Well Pitched on Kiwi FM

We were on it!

Did you hear Graeme announce our name?

"State of Play", a sports program hosted by Keith on Kiwi FM, gave us our 10 seconds of fame when Graeme came on air for the cricket segment of the program.

I was out painting the town red (it was half past midnight on a weekend in Dubai!) when Well Pitched was supposed to be mentioned.

But thank heavens for iPhones and Blackberries, which enabled not only me but my friends as well to have a hear.

And hear we did amidst all the noise.

At first Keith introduced "Graeme Beasley from" on to the show and the two discussed the turbulent flight experience that Graeme went through last week, on his way to Wellington.

That entertaining chat educated us Pakistanis about the fact that PIA isn't alone!

Graeme then gave us the line that we were waiting for, "Good morning New Zealand, good morning DUBAI, Q from the cricket blog actually listened to the show last week and put up a transcript from that interview with Jrod that we did".

That was my 10 seconds of fame; thanks to Graeme, Keith, Kiwi FM, Jrod, and my note-pad!.

Graeme continued, "we've got a plug for the show on his blog, which makes us the top ranking New Zealand sports show because of those people listening by the internet in Dubai".

Little did he know that we had our phones patched to our ears.

Keith then joked about how he would speak to the bosses about that and get them a pay raise.

If you guys get that raise, I want my piece of the pie too.

Keith then gave some important information to his listeners, "if any of you travel to Dubai you can win a debate on New Zealand sports with any of those who listen to this show because they obviously get very inaccurate information".

I'll tell you this much people - if you stay updated through Sportsfreak and listen to "State of Play" weekly, you will surely be as up to date with New Zealand sports as any of the Kiwis who come down here. Maybe even moreso.

I didn't listen to the rest of the chat, which I would have if I was home and would have told you about it.

I did manage to record the clip though, but I couldn't upload it here because blogger apparently does not support AMR or mp4 format.

So if any of you know how I could do it or if you want a copy of the sound clip, drop me a line.

Plus, if you want to listen to the State of Play cricket segment, then its on every Friday at 8:25pm GMT.

Here is where you go to have a hear.
