#200: Gaelic Football

I have now experienced the Irish version of what we in Texas call L.I.F.E.

Gaelic Football, or GAA. It's played on a pitch. My version is that it is a mixture of basketball, football (American), soccer and probably some other stuff. It looks like there are a bunch of guys running after each other in gym class chasing a ball, trying to get it into a goal.

I just watched Mayo play Sligo, though really it was Mayo beating on Sligo. Here's the stats.

Before game festivities - note that it is NOT raining
The sky on the way back to Galway!
