Weekend sporting highlights… and a suave PK take Late Late hot seat!
The Late Late hot seat has been filled!
Great! At last!
Yes! So it’s a big congratulations to a veteran broadcasting smoothie…
A man who…
Yes, a man! A man who has made us laugh over many years…
The great PK! Go PK! Go PK! Go PK!
But, but, but…
Suave, stylish, well-spoken…
Surely they haven’t gone back to Pat Kenny again?
You said the great PK…?
Not Pat Kenny… it’s PATRICK KIELTY!
(They pause to reminisce about the Ryan Tubridy era)
What a weekend of GAA action!
Hard-hitting stuff in the hurling! NOTHING held back!
Limerick and Tipp?
Clare and Cork?
I actually meant Dónal Óg Cusack and Joanne Cantwell! They had a very tense exchange in studio!
So, what was your highlight of the weekend?
Well, I managed to completely avoid the Phillip Schofield ‘story’…proud of that!
I meant sporting highlight…
Well, Mayo were impressive against Kerry. Galway won too!
Yeah, and what a win by Westmeath hurlers!
Yes… but a shame about Leinster’s loss in the rugby.
Amazing achievement by La Rochelle and Ronan O’Gara…
The Premier League is heading for an exciting finale.
Not really! Manchester City have it wrapped up.
But the relegation battle will be tense… Everton, Leicester and Leeds all in the mix!
Isn’t the Editor a Leeds fan?
Yeah! I told him earlier that I have relations in Hull. I said he could stay with them next year when Leeds play Hull in the Championship! Then I added that Leeds manager Sam Allardyce is probably past his best.
Did the Editor laugh?
No! He mumbled something about us being past our best!
(They pause to wonder if the Editor was being serious – or joking)
Well, MY weekend highlight was that sensational Block!
In a GAA match? Ah, good defending, it’s an art!
No! Michael Block! The club professional who qualified for the PGA, then finished in the top 15, played with Rory McIllroy on the final day… and produced a hole-in-one!
Yeah, what a story! The magic of sport!
And Rory handled it so well, offered such support. I saw a lovely video of Michael Block’s wife introducing herself to Rory…and he had the grace and courtesy to ask about the couple’s sons!
Apparently they are very good golfers too!
Great! I guess that makes them…
CHIPS OFF THE OLD BLOCK!
