The hurling Championship is already a mouthwatering prospect.

Ger Loughnane's comments about Kilkenny being "functional beyond belief" somehow became a story way bigger than it needed to be, though hurling fans must be glad it got the ball rolling after a spring where everyone was being too nice.

As an aside, in most societies functionality is a prized concept - it means we do things that work, we make things people can use, we fix problems, we function. Somehow that notion is an insult in Ireland in 2016.
