Who needs sunshine when you've got BOD? It's the week in comments

If your name is Shane Long or Antonio Valencia though, you might not want to read on.

You decided to ignore the great weather and watch Ireland instead. Good call.

IT’S BEEN ANOTHER busy week of sport, but thanks to you and your witty comments, we’re ready to do it all over again.

Here are some of our fondest below-the-line contributions from the past seven days.

Even the hottest day of the year wasn’t going to stop Liam is ainm dumb from watching the Six Nations finale

“Absolutely LOVELY day outside…. best open the curtains and let some sun in as I watch the rugby.”

Poor Shane Long wasn’t getting any love from Pat Nolan as his Ireland team-mate Seamus Coleman scored yet another goal

“Seamus Coleman (a defender) more PL goals than Shane Long this season.”

Gary Murphy had a unique take on how Kilkenny can work their way back into All-Ireland contention after their loss to Dublin in the Allianz Hurling League. 

“If Kilkenny can get their dual players to concentrate on the hurling this year, they have every chance.”

Some of you are a cynical lot, especially Silent Majority who wasn’t impressed at all with the cricket newbies after Ireland’s victory over Zimbabwe.

“The bandwagon will be departing shortly from platform 5. Could anyone with minimal knowledge of cricket, a large leprechaun hat, and a confused sense of patriotism please make their way immediately to platform 5. Thank you.”

Robbie Keane pulled off a brilliant trick-shot involving a shopping trolley and Charles J. Ahern knew exactly where he learned the skill.

“He used to do that in the Square car park all time.”

Antonio Valencia’s eye was the size of an apple by the time Manchester United’s Champions League tie with Olympiakos was over, not that Sean Barber had too much sympathy.

“I feel bad for Valencia, usually he has to play the match with just one foot, now he’s playing without an eye too.”

The news that you’re no longer allowed enjoy a jog in  Burundi was met with disappointment by distance runner Tony.

“No Bujumbura Marathan this year folks.”
