GAA Clichés


#282

Like wasps around a cat


#283

Additional time: At least two minutes. Two minutes.


#284

Waterford will win an All Ireland with this team in the next 10 years


#285

“There is no talk coming out of Tipp.”


#286

That point keeps them in touch


#287

And Kilkenny are All Ireland champions


#288

There s a Tyrone player down


#289

“There’s no way that team will line out as selected” or “there’s no way that team will start”.

Team lines out as selected.


#290

Referening gears when talking about a teams performance

“Sure Kilkenny were only in second gear when they won”


#291

How many gears would a team generally have?


#292

Five.

Sometimes a mythical sixth is referenced, but this is bullshit. Or a myth.


#293

One of the camogie ladies on Sunday night (not Geary, the other one) came out with “goals win games.”

Galway 0-26 Tipp 3-16.


#294

Galway 3-10 Kilkenny 0-17.


#295

You forgot the reverse gear. Which Tyrone will be stuck in next Sunday.


#296

Teams can be in 1st gear, 2nd gear or 3rd gear. Occasionally 5th and rarely 6th.
They cannot be in 4th gear for some reason.


#297

Unless a heavy favourite looks like they’re going to be beaten at some point they “didn’t get out of second gear”.


#298

“Hurling, the Riverdance of sport”


#299

Those 21s will have one eye on the senior final


#300

If there was a transfer market in the GAA…


#301

Galway bandwagon
