Saturday Mornings on Spirit Locker Room with Pablo and the Spirits Sporting Watch Reporter - Alex Benton
Get the guide for all the Sporting News each Saturday at 8:45am and prepare yourself for the Weekend.
Alex Benton known as AB is Spirit 1260's Sport Watch Reporter.
Originally born in Adelaide, South Australia, his first childhood memory was "playing cricket in the backyard." Which could explain why he wanted to be the Australian's Test Team first batsmen. Clearly this "didn't happen" even though AB comes from a family of 2 sisters where he had to "bowl,bat,field and keep score" by himself.
His sisters surely teased him while growing up as his first crush was with Pamela Anderson as he sat in his room dreaming of sport listening to his first ever CD; Harry Connick Jr which he claims "still holds up."
He's a techno savvy new age man to say the least and couldn't live without his "iphone , ESPN, Foxtel...basically anything that delivers me a sports score!"
AB's favorite TV show is Seinfeld and movie is Jerry Maguire. You're getting the picture here right?
He's sport obsessed.
Holidaying away for the FIFA World Cup in 2006-07 and finishing in West Indies for the ICC Cricket World Cup is his favorite holiday of all time. While if AB ever did get stuck on a desert island he would take "A Wilson sporting good volleyball" that he would name Wilson.
He'd like best to sit down to dinner with Barack Obama and maybe "we could discuss the NCAA Football playoff system and then shoot some hoops in between entree and main course." His obsession in sport doesn't stop here. He'd love to sleep with celebrity Gisele Bundchen and American Footballer Tom Brady which he claims "would tick a few boxes for me."
