Big Sam Paid Tribute to Kim Kardashian When Crashing This Dublin Night Out

Big Sam Paid Tribute to Kim Kardashian When Crashing This Dublin Night Out

Picture the scene: you are a student and have gone to a college night out with friends at an unspecified Dublin venue. The DJ has elected to go with some light rock, so people are dancing vigorously without opting to tackle each other in some sort of barbaric mosh pit.

You have had a few drinks and just when you think the night has reached its peak... Sam Allardyce appears with a drink in his hand!

You might think that idyllic and expertly painted scene is too good to be true - but no, it is almost verbatim the story that was told on this week's Second Captains podcast.


Ken Early has recently gotten himself hooked on Big Sam the way conspiracy theorists might hole themselves up in a room studying footage of the JFK assassination. The lads talked at length about Allardyce's book this week, which prompted a listener called Dave to send in this story, which was read with a flourish by Ciaran Murphy.

I can report that BS [Big Sam] did seem to find himself somewhat perplexed to find himself upstairs at our student indie night at which I was working. As a mass of sweaty adolescents thronged about this colossus to the strains of MGMT, he maintained a bemuse calm.

While clearly being more accustomed to Lillie's on a Saturday, he retained his good humour, whispering lustily to me 'this photo is going to break the fucking internet' with a Cheshire grin. This was at the time of the Kardashian picture, with which Sam was evidently well acquainted."

You have to give Dave credit there for painting such a vivid picture of the night in question but the funniest part of the story is that you can definitely picture Allardyce actually saying something like that. A friend of Dave's even sent us in a photo of Big Sam on the night. As Ken remarked on the podcast, Big Sam's hand almost makes that pint look like a shot glass.


I don't know about you, but I'm going to trawl every student bar in Dublin tonight in the hopes of creating my own random Premier League meet and greet.
