THE ALTERNATIVE INTERVIEW . . .
PADDY KEENAN AWAY FROM THE GAA FIELDS
Published 25/05/2013 | 05:00
Last sports event you
attended as a fan?
Had tickets for the NFL game in Wembley last year, but didn't get to go because of club commitments. Not sure after that. It wasn't a soccer match anyway! I like to play, but not watch!
Favourite sports person
outside the GAA?
Not so much a person as a team. I'm a big fan of the San Diego Chargers (right) in the NFL.
Favourite people to
follow on Twitter?
I'm not a big Twitter user, but I'm on it for NFL, so they are all NFL-related. Adam Schefter and Jay Glazer are two of my favourite correspondents. I'm an avid Fantasy league player, already gearing up for the new season.
The best thing a fan has said to you?
Not much! A legend after a score or two, but it generally doesn't last long!
The worst thing a fan has said to you?
Early in my playing career I heard a roar coming in over the line directed at me. 'Get the young fella off.' That stuck. You'll certainly listen to a lot more things said when you're 18 years of age than you do when you're 28.
