Episode 852: Being Joe Canning, Pressure And Positivity, Ireland World Cup Draw
Joe Canning begins his tenth season as a senior inter-county hurler with Galway later this month – still on the trail of an All-Ireland medal.
This year seems like as good a chance for Galway as any, and Joe joins us in studio to talk about the League final win over Tipperary, why a year out is not for him, and the importance of family to one of the best players of his generation.
There’s also Ireland’s favourable Rugby World Cup draw… that is, if it really is that favourable. Scotland and Japan are in our pool, but is the spectre of a World Cup quarter-final loss to South Africa looming large over all this positivity?
Plus we issue a public apology to Muggsy Bogues, scaremonger about ninja shortages and Ken analyses Japanese rugby, Japanese society and Japanese sports crowds… in 30 seconds or less.
