Richie Hogan's picture of his blistered feet is as impressive as it is revolting

How did he even finish the game?

THIS PICTURE RAISES so many questions.

First of all, how was he able to complete the match? Were his boots five sizes too small for him? Were his socks painted on? Did he not break in the new boots before playing a match?

Everyone knows how painful a bad blister can be.

You can feel it coming in, and you just know that the more you run, the bigger that bad boy is going to get.

Even Hurlers of the Year know what it feels like, with Kilkenny’s Richie Hogan posting a picture of his deformed feet following today’s All-Ireland hurling semi-final win against Waterford.

Both of Hogan’s trotters have been plagued with huge blisters with another couple on the tips of his toes.

The picture is pretty gross, so if you are relatively squeamish about these things, look away now.

Consider this regular picture of Hogan as a buffer. Once you pass this mark, we accept no responsibility for vomiting.
