John Michael summed up why Robbie Keane should be adored after he decided to play against Scotland despite the tragic deaths of two of his family members:

He was the only one who got a decent shot on target. He travels from America to sit on the bench and still plays after the deaths of his cousins. They should be building statues of him outside the Aviva. He’s an absolute legend with a fantastic attitude.

I opened this article in hope and I’m so delighted the packie photo was there. Packie was my idol. I even still have the yellow jersey with the pads on the elbows. Doesn’t fit me tho. I want an adult size one of these.

Rob O’H was quick off the mark with this one-liner after Fergus McFadden tweeted a picture of a horse-racing fan passed out in Ascot:

Yer man better roll away quick or he’ll be pinged by Barnes.

Ricky Fowler’s putting was pretty poor as he ended the first day of the US Open in second-last, but he almost scored an incredible hole-in-one on the 12th. Alex Eustace analysed his game plan perfectly:

“Oh man, that was so much easier than putting. I should just try get the ball in the hole in one shot every time.”“Good plan”
