Last sports event you paid in to (apart from last Sunday)?

GOC: As a reward for winning last year's All-Ireland, we brought the U-21s over to Old Trafford in January to watch Man United v Liverpool.

DM: Same as that.

If you had the opportunity to attend one sporting event, what would it be?

GOC: 'El Clasico' between Barcelona and Real Madrid.

GOC: Ah Jeez, do I have to? 22.

DM: I don't play.

Taste in Music?
