    (I couldn't think of what to choose for a username at the time, had my iPod on shuffle, that song came on...and there you have it. I'd probably change it if I could)

    It's amazing they have been together 41 years. My entire lifespan.

    I saw something on Twitter the other day, without revealing your age (which I don't think really matters) what would be something from your younger years you could tell a young person today that they would never have heard of or experienced? Obviously cell phones and the like. But I was telling my niece the other day that as a young teen, I would have to take the phone (with a cord of course) and drag the cord under the door of my room to get some privacy. She was amazed. Seems amazing now. Also Blockbuster video...it's only been closed for like 10 years or something but it seems a life time away. Going to the store to rent a clunky VHS tape and having to bring it back the next day....Seeing the "staff picks"......the separate porn section behind a curtain....people renting porn in public in a town they live in, the teen behind the counter seeing the title they picked??? i would NEVER have had the stones for that!!!

    I used to work in an adult shop in Letterkenny. Small town, only just over 20,000 people, so was likely to see people I knew coming in there from time to time. Porn DVD's and magazines still sell, and rent, or at least they did as of around 5 years ago. Sometimes selling to people who I knew, but didn't seem to recognise me, was particularly awkward.

    Interesting. Can't really see you working there. Women were always too embarrassed in person but now online porn is approaching 50/50. When people can be anonymous...they are much more up for it and it has made people out in the Van Nuys/Chattsworth crap section of LA a fortune.

    So were you ever like "Nigel says Black Hookers 2 is a best bet for today."

    Is Lady Gaga on the new U2 album as well as Haim and Kendrick Lamar???? That can't be right. The Fonz is warming up his motorcycle if so.

    A piece of information I only found out this evening has absolutely blown my mind.

    For years, it was frowned upon that any protestant would play Gaelic Football.

    The All-Ireland championship is the biggest tournament in the sport. The trophy is named after a protestant man, Sam Maguire.

    This may be common knowledge to a lot of people, but that little nugget has just left me with a sore head.

    Frowned upon within the GAA or within the protestant community? I had no idea, a fair few protestants in our part of world certainly played GAA.

    What was the cause of you finding this out?

    I've never heard it being frowned upon in Dublin or anywhere really any way at all!

    I played with a guy with Liffey Gaels whose dad was from Milford and had moved to Chapelizod ca. 1993. Never an issue and it never cropped up. In fact it was never commented upon amongst the dads of the club etc.

    Chapelizod has 2 National Schools. At the time they were called Chapelizod NS No. 1 and Chapelizod NS No. 2 and on his first day of training I asked where he went and he said Chapelizod and as I went to Chapelizod NS I was naturally excited to have a team-mate as a classmate then only to be rather disappointed that I found out that he went to the "other" (No2-COI) school. And I was the one with the better left foot.
    Ballyfermot had a few COI families in the club and in fact despite going to the RC school we had a number of Methodist and Baptist pupils and again they had no issue playing GAA.

    I know it's only a microcosm, but in my 30 years of playing and then watching GAA I only ever recall one incident of proper sectarian abuse and it was towards that Darren Graham of Fermanagh about 10 years ago (though I know there have been more) and I have never heard any sort of "Hill16 for Fenians Only" sort of attitude from ANYONE, fan or otherwise! (That's obviously not including the "hilarious", "What's it like to have a Queen?" chants you used to here to any fans from FATDAD came South to play.) But you get what I mean...

    In fact I've been bringing a filthy black Prod loyalist mate of mine to Croker the best part of 4 years now. He's well in tune with the greening of his mind.

    In fact my formative years in the early 90s had a Protestant President of the GAA and e constantly talked about Douglas Hyde as a the Patron of the Association in history. So it never would have cropped up re Prods and the Gah in a negative light. I'm actually gonna ask a couple of heads that I know from mixed towns in Tyrone out of curiosity what the attitude was like for Protestants to play for their clubs.

    Different story when it related to rule 21 of course however at the time.

    But yeah, curious to know what happened that brought this up?
    DID YOU NOTICE A SIGN OUTSIDE MY HOUSE...?

  22. Thanks From:
