Episode 2784: The Monday Morning Rocket Scientist, The Split Season Split, Kerry In Da Club
The Kerry county final should be one of the showpiece occasions of the GAA club season, but when East Kerry won their fourth title in 5 seasons yesterday, there was a hint of a cloud overhead.
There is nothing more labyrinthine in the GAA than Kerry’s club championship structure but our guide today is Maurice Brosnan of the Irish Examiner, as he talks to us about proud clubs getting relegated, amalgamated sides dominating, and the impact of the split season.
We also discuss back-up quarter-back Josh Dobbs’ heroics with the Minnesota Vikings yesterday, who used his background in aerospace engineering to show that playing quarter-back in the NFL isn’t exactly rocket science.
