Episode 2788: The Curse Of The Colonel, Roddy Collins Pep Rally, Hall Of Fame Horgan
The Curse of the Colonel has been broken. The people of Osaka have awoken!
Yes, that’s right, we are talking today about Hanshin Tigers securing their first Japan Series victory since 1985 and we are joined on the line by Trevor Ray of Hanshin Tigers English News podcast to guide us through the wild world of Japanese Baseball and this crazy crispy chicken curse.
Meanwhile, back in the home country, this Sunday’s FAI Cup Final is set to break an attendance record set way back in 1945.Branno dives into the history books, attends a Roddy Collins Pep Rally and sets the vibe, while Inchicore Murph exudes an air of smarmy confidence that could see him have to eat his words on Monday.
And we tip our hat to one of our own; Shane Horgan, who is today inducted into the Irish Rugby Hall of Fame.
