Sports Bio

I'm from Ireland, so I support the Dublin GAA teams and the Irish football and rugby teams particularly but I'll cheer for and look out for any Irish team or individual competing on the world stage (yeah I was at a Michelle Smith celebration party a few years back). I was raised a Tottenham Hotspur and London Irish RFC supporter too.

Other than that, I love baseball, and was a regular at Yankee Stadium during my 7 years living in New York. I moved from there to Toronto recently, and I'm a big believer in rooting for the home team, so the Jays are my locals now. If anyone fancies a night at Rogers Centre email me.

Here are all the Irish born men to play major league baseball. Including, I'll have you note, the first man ever to hit for the cycle.

What does it take to save penalties?

You hear this in relation to other athletes too - Alex Rodriguez is the one that springs to my mind, commentators will say "there's that jealousy, he's so wealthy, so talented, so handsome". But I've never heard anyone at yankee stadium say "I hate that A-Rod, he's so bloody good looking". It's odd.

After consulting with his family, Beckham hands in captain's armband.

He does seem to have been enjoying his contrarianism a little too much throughout the cup.

Interesting Beckham post and comments over here, by the way.

Buh-bye Becks. In other analysis, Terry Butcher ain't pulling his punches. * giggles with glee only appropriate for a Paddy *

World Cup Semifinals Set: Germany, Italy, Portugal and France

I'm just curious, I thought he was posting from the US point of view a while back. I'm going to confess that I find the "adopters" fairly baffling. I'm Irish, we sure ain't in it (thanks Israel!) and I'm still watching it all but can't imagine getting so foul mouthedly invested in another country's team. But different horses, I guess . . . .

Angels designate pitcher Jeff Weaver for assignment; Club recalls pitcher Jered Weaver from Triple-A Salt Lake

Yeah really. How does their next phone conversation go? Awkward . . . .

Promises kept.

Priscilla Oppenheimer sounds like a formidable chracter - with a good heart. Fair play to her.
