Nope, we don't want to see that happening.

The hurling championship is galloping towards us at break-neck speed and it won't be long now until we're discussing Leinster and Munster Finals, and once again cursing ourselves for ever ruling Kilkenny out... we should know by this stage you can never rule The Cats out.

Reigning All-Ireland champions Tipperary are the bookies' favourites before the Championship action kicks off in earnest this year, with Galway hot on their heels in the experts' eyes following their demolition of the Premier County in the League decider last month.

There are plenty out there who fancy Galway to come up trumps, but the majority of people still believe that Michael Ryan's men will be top of the pile following the first Sunday in September.

In interviews with RTE, Liam Sheedy, Anthony Daly and Henry Shefflin, three men who know a thing or two about winning All-Irelands, all stated their belief that Tipperary will make it a double this year.

But Waterford legend John Mullane believes that Galway will have a big say on where Liam will end up this year.

But that isn't the most striking moment of his interview, but rather his thoughts on Waterford's chances.

"I'm going to go for Galway,' Mullane said. "I think it's written in the stars. I think they'll beat Dublin, they'll be in a Leinster final. I think they'll win Leinster; it's going to be Galway's year. What I will say is, if Waterford win the All-Ireland I'll jump on a horse in the nude and go down the Quay!"

For the love of God, the rest of teams better not let Waterford win the All-Ireland this year.
