    I watched some Irish football in the brief period I had Setanta. Interesting.

    My Irish side reveled in a uniquely Gaelic pastime, my German side was repulsed by the lack of order, but enthused by the codified violence. Then I threw on a Van Morrison-Kraftwerk mix tape and went insane.

    Thanks Big Ten Network and Dish Network. Just the idea of being able to watch an Indiana-Arkansas women's soccer match is worth bumping Setanta and fascinating stuff like hurling, Aussie Rules, etc., off my service.
  3. I do wish they had a better term for punching the ball into the net than "fisting it in for a score."

    Maybe it's a veiled reference to "the troubles". Perhaps black and tans used to "fist it in for a score" to real fenian bastards they held in political prisons.

    Or maybe I'm overthinking this a tad.

    I do love GAA sports. Hurling and Gaelic football are joys to watch.

    I have this image of FB hearing a noise late at night, flicking on a light and picking up a hurley to go investigate.
