A League of Their Own stars Jamie Redknapp, Freddie Flintoff and Rob Beckett were at Nowlan Park on Saturday

Comment: Three Brits playing hurling at half-time shows how far we've come - but Sky Sports' involvement in GAA is a bad thing 

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp was one of my favourite Liverpool players as a young girl, but he won't be featuring on my list of top hurlers any time soon. Watching him and England cricketer Freddie Flintoff try score against goalkeeping legend Damien Fitzhenry at half-time in Nowlan Park on Saturday was the latest attempt by Sky to show how they're embracing our 'bonkers' national sport.
