We wait with baited breath to see just what The Independent's documentary on John Delaney will revel at 7pm tonight as all manner of people line up to describe just what makes the FAI's overlord tick. It is a cultural event that reduces an All Ireland hurling final and a Euro 2016 qualifier to mere footnotes and thanks to the Independent magazine we get to hear just why he's called The Baptist and the epic tale of the time he met Eric Cantona and three women.
