For­get Mcgre­gor, this is about Paddy Sports Fan

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - PARTY TIME! - PAT FITZ­PATRICK

IT’S been an in­cred­i­ble year for Paddy Sports Fan (PSF). His per­for­mance in Las Ve­gas was a new high, or low, depend­ing on how you look at these things. It’s fair to say that, in terms of sport­ing im­por­tance, the May­weather-mcgre­gor fight was ba­si­cally a shinty friendly, crossed with a gaelic foot­ball match in Kilkenny. How­ever, it was mega-gi­gan­tic when it came to Ir­ish peo­ple shar­ing videos of them­selves drink­ing a large city dry. Some 15,000 of our best PSFS headed for Ve­gas and broad­cast footage of them­selves com­ing down an es­ca­la­tor to show the rest of the world what it means to be the crack. Floyd May­weather hinted at the cir­cus na­ture of the whole thing when he praised Mcgre­gor for be­ing the “right dance part­ner”. How­ever, your av­er­age PSF didn’t get where he is to­day (pissed in the main square of a Euro­pean city) by pay­ing at­ten­tion to the de­tails. He is far too busy search­ing for ‘video of me help­ing a lo­cal’ on Youtube, to be both­er­ing with that kind of non­sense. As we know, this is a form of ther­apy for PSF and we can only hope he finds some way to chan­nel his amaz­ing sound­ness, and sense of fun, next year. Be­cause oth­er­wise, who knows what might hap­pen?
