Pic: The Irish lads who blagged their way into the Super Bowl have made it to the Washington Post

After this, nobody will ever blag their way into the Super Bowl for free again.

We’re known for our charm and for the gift of the gab in Ireland and that was perhaps never better illustrated than the story of the two lads who managed to blag their way into the Super Bowl and seats worth $25,000 in Arizona on Sunday night.

The story of the exploits of Richard Whelan and Paul McEvoy, first been published on JOE on Monday, has gone viral this week and if you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard it yet, then you need to head over here immediately.

Richard and Paul’s story has gone so huge, in fact, that it has even made its way into the Washington Post, one of the most recognised newspaper titles in the world.

Not bad going at all.

If that wasn’t good enough, they also earned an Instagram shout-out from Lawyer Milloy, a one-time Super Bowl champion and New England Patriots legend, who was seated directly behind them during the game on Sunday night and was hugely impressed with the size of their balls.

We’re talking metaphorically, of course.

Richard and Paul, if you fancy doing something similar for the Champions' League final and want some company, don’t hesitate to give us a shout.

Legends, the pair of them.
