Henry Shefflin has announced he'll be making a statement at 12pm today and immediately everyone has assumed he will be announcing his retirement. But what if that's not case?
We're taking a look at some of the other possible reasons Shefflin has called this presser.
1. Fantastic news Dougal!
Likelihood: 10% chance.
Fairly unlikely given that he's already married.
2. He's following in Jackie Tyrell's footsteps
After Jackie Tyrell wowed some baseball folk during The Toughest Trade, it wouldn't come as a huge surprise if the MLB starting poaching our best and brightest.
3. He's running for office
In all seriousness we mightn't be too far wrong come the end of the year. We're not sure if Shefflin has much interest in politics but if he ran in the next general election he'd surely top the poll.
4. He's signing for Real Madrid
Fresh from another defeat at the hands of Barcelona, a desperate Real Madrid turn to Eamon Dunphy for advice. He points them in the direction of one man.
5. He's transferring to Kildare
Henry Shefflin is joing Coill Dubh, I'm sure of it. Sure why wouldn't he. I know he works in Kilkenny City but who could resist the club where all would-be hurling stars end up?
6. He's moving to Japan
This is actually more realistic than the Kildare idea. Henry Shefflin is so popular in Japan that he features in their geography books. Perhaps someone's roped him in for a show-and-tell.
7. He's debuting a new girlfriend
Fed up of all the attention these rugby girlfriend debuts are getting, Henry might be deciding it's time to bring the chat back to hurling. Again, the whole him having a wife thing makes this a bit of a stretch.
