What we learned this weekend...

There was plenty of lessons to glean from the weekend’s action.

1. Dream Team has predicted everything that ever happened in football

Ashley Cole shot a work placement guy at Chelsea’s training ground on Sunday morning with an air rifle. For many amongst us it brought back painful memories of Jaws’ car.

2. Don’t mess with the Irish rugby players… on social media sites

After their uninspiring win in Edinburgh, some of our top egg-chasers took to Twitter to defend themselves.

As Jamie Heaslip wrote: “If you’ve got something negative to say go elsewhere or unfollow”.

3. LeBron has eyes on the back of his head

The Knicks scored a huge win over LeBron James’ Miami Heat yesterday, but LeBron still had a memorable highlight.

4. The Connacht and Ulster champions will meet on St Patrick’s Day

St Brigid’s of Roscommon and Crossmaglen Rangers of Armagh will contest this year’s All-Ireland senior football club final after both sides recorded memorable wins in their respective semi-final clashes this weekend.

5. Sparky has very strong opinions on handhshake technique

He clashed with Tony Pulis over this seemingly trivial topic before and yesterday the former Man City boss was unhappy with his Eastlands successor over the post-match grip-and-grin.
