Wet spaghetti and a young Marty Morrissey: It's the week in comments

For the second week running, Trevor Welch’s custard creams get a mention.

HERE ARE THE sharpest, wittiest, strangest and most memorable comments from you this week, dear readers. If they’re not sharp, witty, strange or memorable enough for you, you know who to blame!

As always, thank you for your contributions.

TV3 announced this week that they have won the rights to broadcast the 2015 Rugby World Cup. John Craven already has a good idea of what they’ll bring to the table:

“Custard creams for all.. Sweet Jesus”

Some of Munster’s stars took time out on Tuesday to visit sick children in Limerick Hospital, and we had a little something in our eye after reading Jerry MacCárthaigh’s comment:

“Its fantastic to see, these guys are heroes in Limerick, Munster and throughout Ireland. A few hours of their time can make a monumental difference to these kids! Rugby really gives a lot back to the community!”

British Pathe released lots of archive footage this week, including a cracking clip of the 1934 All-Ireland final. The Druid seemed to recognise the commentator’s voice:

“Marty Morrissey sounds very young on commentary.”

The comments section hasn’t been too kind to Tim Sherwood lately and it was no different for the Spurs boss this week:

“Sherwood has the air of a man who retired, started playing football manager and thought ‘Yano what I could give this a go.’”

Ken Doherty qualified for his 19th World Snooker Championship and declared he’s ready to face anyone — even champion Ronnie O’Sullivan. Daniel has a fairly decent idea about how that match might pan out:

“Ronnie would beat him using wet spaghetti.”

After Sky Sports picked up the broadcast rights to the Top 14, Del McG found the silver lining for some fans:

“Great news for Welsh rugby fans who might actually be able to see some of their players playing next season.”
