Wexford commentator loses his teeth with excitement and a third chance for Tipp?
How good was Wexford’s win last night? One local radio commentator misplaced his false teeth.
From the brilliant pictures during the game, to the epic picture Wexford captain Lee Chin tweeted this morning, last night’s Leinster U21 Hurling final has certainly been the GAA story of the week so far.
We thought we had heard all the elements there were to hear to the night but Wexford radio station South East Radio coughed up another nugget.
If you’ve ever been in the area during a GAA game you will have heard the dulcet tones of Liam Spratt. Spratt has been calling Wexford games for as long as anyone can remember and has surely seen it all in his time, including All-Ireland’s for the senior hurlers and the camogie team.
But last night’s dramatic win was so stunning that Spratt suffered a rather novel dilemma, as posted on South East Radio's Facebook page.
No news yet on whether Spratt has been reunited with his gnashers. Guess we will have to listen in to his weekend commentary to find out.
Have Tipperary gotten a reprieve?
As we heard on our own podcast this week, Tipperary folk are taking the defeat to Kilkenny hard. With their footballers also gone, Tipp’s senior representatives have a long summer cooling their heels, as does their fan base.
So a few may have clicked onto the Irish Times today and wondered if they got a third chance.
Sadly for the Premier County, it seems it was just a small mistake, and it will indeed be Limerick who line out at the Gaelic Grounds to face Pa Cronin and Co.
Thanks to Brian O'Connor for sending our way... we'd never make such a mistake of course *cough*
