Mayo v Dublin: Some of the very best David Brady quotes
There are a lot of good GAA pundits out there, but none have a way with the English language that Elverys sports blog columnist David Brady does. Here are some of the gems the Mayo midfielder has come out with over the years.
“As a man says…”
The line David begins practically every sentence with.
“It was GAA porn yesterday without a doubt.”
The quality of some games is enough to get David excited. Very excited.
“I’d wear a pink g-string if Mayo were to win the All-Ireland.”
Be afraid Mayo people, be very afraid.
“Every man, woman and monkey didn’t give them a chance.”
Reacting to Mayo beating Cork in the 2011 Championship.
“I sought an extra ticket from the Mayo County Board last year and my letter and blank cheque were returned with the request denied!”
Apparently a previous Brady blank cheque had bounced (in case the bank ask, we’re only joking).
“I’ve been a loser all my life but today, Hogan Stand boy, pick up the cup.”
A breathless Brady after winning an All-Ireland club title with Ballina in 2005.
“Before the game, through constant reminders from John Maughan, that cheer had become a samba dance with added whooping and hollering.”
Allegedly there was a big cheer in the Tyrone dressing room after they drew Mayo in the 2004 All-Ireland quarter-final, so it was used as a motivation ploy by John Maughan before a game that Mayo would go on to win.
"They've probably slept together but they've never played together (in midfield), the two O'Shea brothers."
It’s obviously not as relevant this season but it was before the O’Shea siblings played in midfield together in the 2011 Championship.
