'If Usain Bolt was on Yogurt, he’d probably be running the 100m in less than 9 seconds.': It's your Comments of the Week

Did you make the cut this week?

THE RIO 2016 Olympics is in full swing by now and we’ve had a monumental week of sport over the last seven days.

The O’Donovan brothers brought home Ireland’s first Olympic medal of 2016 today by coming second in the men’s lightweight sculls this afternoon. They’ve won over the hearts of the country with their humour over the last few days, but Fiachra Ahern reckons the humour is just a front.

Ya gas men alright but don’t be fooled by their ‘jack the lad’ carry on. They are deadly serious about their rowing.To be honest the ‘jack the lad’ ‘gas men’ stuff is a front to be fair. It’s a Cork thing really. Pretending to not really care but secretly being very serious about it.Come on the biys!!!

A lot of Olympic coverage has been closely linked to doping controversies, and when Yulia Efimova was beaten in the 100m breastroke, she asked “if yogurt gets banned and you’re positive, is that your fault?”

Gordon Glynn thinks she may be on to something with the yogurt.

If yogurt gets banned and you’re positive, is that your fault?” Silly comment, of course it is. Yogurt is the greatest of all the performance enhancers. If Usain Bolt was on Yogurt, he’d probably be running the 100m in less than 9 seconds.

This weekend will see the replay of Kilkenny and Waterford for an All-Ireland semi-final place. Conor Ryan felt there was something familiar looking about the tied clash last week.

Has the feeling of an Ireland New Zealand rugby series.
First test… we run them close.
Second test… well..

Ever since Sky Sports started showing the GAA, a lot of English people have commented on our own Gaelic Games. Donal wondered where all those English fans were after last week’s semi-final.

Any chance we could have some comments from random English people about how awesome they think hurling is having seen it for the first time, wondering how they haven’t heard of it before?

Kerry’s Kieran Donaghy announced the release of his autobiography, to mixed reaction. Lorcan Bosanquet offered his potential summary of the book.

Born, lived in Kerry, played football and basketball, shouted into a microphone because Joe Brolly annoyed me. The end.

Shane Long scored the only goal in Southampton’s pre-season win over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. Brian Les came out with this peach.

Good to see Long basque in the glory of that finish.
