Let those terrorists know where you are

19 June 2007

Via Damien:

Also a bit of a telly round up: Prison Break is back[1] on RTE 2. Course I’ve been watching Heroes on SciFiUk at that particular time so haven’t been watching it. But thanks to the joys of d’internet I got to watch it last night. I wasn’t overly impressed[2]

Hopefully I’ll be more entertained when Rome makes its come back on Wednesday. And Sunday[3] Which might be awkward as I’m heading up to Sligo this weekend. Don’t wanna be on the train when Lamb and Chicken are back on the screen.

Over the weekend there was a feast of GAA action but there was too much going on. I watched the Limerick v Tipp hurling match on Sat. evening. I was cheering for Limerick, on account of that is where de mudder is from, but I didn’t think they win. And they didn’t. They did however draw. Again. So it’ll be a third replay.

On the face of it Limerick have simply trailed Tipp like a particularly enthusiastic puppy: every time Tipp have tried to shoo them away, Limerick have scampered happily back to their heel. Will Tipp finally rid themselves of the troublesome mutt, or will Limerick eventually bite them on the bum?

On Sunday we had a dilemma to face. Watch the Dublin V Meath replay in the football or switch over and enjoy the Cork V Waterford hurling? A peak audience of 792,000 watched both matches, with 342,000 watching the hurling and 285,000 watching the football, according to the Irish Times[4] but I’d guess that most people did what I ended up doing. Flicking between the two and missing out on most of the action. Luckily we had The Sunday Game later on for all the bits we missed. And the Sligo match. Which we won, by two points, which means that for the first time since 2002 Sligo will be in a Connacht final.

    Okay, I REALLY needed that laugh this morning. That video was perfect, Fence. I'll be putting the fear of God into everything I do today, believe me. Fair enough.

    Put the fear of god into your maths. Sweat additions! Multiplication. Have you put in 100%?

    Howld on there now me boyo! Is it a repeat or the second episode??? What?? There are only 12 eps, they'll fly through them if they put two on in a week. GRRR.

  4. Fence says:

    Well, obviously as I haven't seen them I don't know for sure. But the ad said Rome, on Wed. and continues on Sunday. So sounds like it'll be the second ep to me.

    Holy Crap! I don't even know who that is and I cracked up through the whole thing. Very funny.

    Rome is one of those shows that I have yet to see but am told by many that I will really enjoy it once I do. Maybe I can get to that this summer.

    That's Paul O'Connell. Well not really, Gift Paulie I suppose. You can hear a section that inspired it here
