Episode 1861: Sam Bennett On Taking Home The Green Jersey, Waterford Winners, Ken Reviews Cobra Kai
Sam Bennett’s achievement in winning the Green Jersey at the Tour de France has been possibly the best bit of sporting news we’ve had since the world turned upside down, and he joins us on the show today.
Yesterday was really a dream come true and to win on the Champs Élysées with @deceuninck_qst in the maillot vert was definitely part of that dream.

He talks to us about why he thought this would never happen, how he struggled when his first stage win meant expectation was ratcheted through the roof, how he sensed vulnerability in his rivals and went for broke, and how he plans to stay humble even after all this success.
“Come on Sam!” @Sammmy_Be’s grandad, Pat Cashin, cheers his grandson on to victory on the final stage of the Tour de France!

Ken binge-watches Cobra Kai and breathlessly reports back, while also finding time to check out Man City’s first game of the season – plus Robby Keene, two Fine Gael leaders battle for control of the dojo, and there’s a possibly gratuitous mention of the Mudlark.

Does today's football show come with a complimentary impression of Seamus Coleman courtesy of Ken?
