It seems inevitable that Bruce Springsteen will wield a hurley in Kilkenny this weekend, but until that happens, they’ve got the next best thing outside Nowlan Park.

Even when a bona-fide international superstar like Bruce Springsteen turns up in the city, Kilkenny people can’t seem to get hurling off their minds and the GAA have helped fans wanting to see their beloved Cats and Bruce on Sunday by scheduling the All-Ireland quarter-final with Cork for 2pm in Thurles.

The Boss himself was captured signing autographs for star-struck fans outside the K-Bowl Bowling Alley in the Marble City last night and while he wasn’t outside Nowlan Park in person this afternoon, he was there in spirit in the shape of this very impressive sign outside the home of hurling in the county.

We haven't seen Bruce's hurling chops so we don't know what position he'd play if he were to dabble in the small ball game but we'd suggest wing-back or midfield.

Why? Well, as he's said himself, the man was born to run.  *JOE goes to get coat*
