Once again, having barely processed all the excitement of the match we’ve just played, we’re hurtling towards another crunch game in this year’s Championship. It’s a schedule designed by idiots, for sure, but it’s one we’re stuck with. Which means that today is – incredibly – the day before our All-Ireland semi-final against Dublin.
I’m under pressure here myself at the minute so I’m afraid I’ll have to park the philosophical rumination for now. Tickets? Everyone should, I think, be sorted now that the early week panic has subsided. By the sounds of it, anyone looking to get to the game should be able to do so, even if there should be close to a full house there tomorrow.
Team news? Nothing as yet, for either the Minor or the Senior teams playing at Croke Park tomorrow. The former should be named at some point today but I’d say we’re unlikely to make any announcement about the Senior team until tomorrow (feel free to insert your own joke here about when today the Connaught Telegraph will publish the team details leaked to them). What’s fairly certain is that we won’t have a clear idea about what either team contesting the Senior semi-final is until shortly before throw-in.
Weather? It’s a grand morning up here in the capital, though there obviously was a nice dash of rain overnight. Warm, windy and a bit wet (more showers than rain) seems to be the prediction for tomorrow afternoon.
Podcast? Yes, there’s a bonus one on the way, with Rob and I getting together up here with a few others later on to record some audio for it, following which we’ll be hunching over our respective laptops to put it online. I’ve no idea when it’ll be up but it will be at some stage tonight and well in time for you to be able to listen to it on the way up tomorrow.
That’s it for now – Lordy, is it Friday already?
