Chris Addison is a professional funny person from the United Kingdom, who, like many from the United Kingdom, was unfortunate enough to go the majority of their lives without knowing that the sport of hurling exists.
This changed recently for 'Doctor Who' and 'The Thick Of It' actor, who managed to catch a glimpse of the fastest sport on grass and told his twitter followers just what he thought about it.
Saw some Hurling on TV last night so I'd just like to say congratulations, Ireland, on any of you being left alive.

Thank you, Chris, but it's really not that bad. Or maybe we're just used to it. Maybe you can ask Dara O'Briain about it next time you're on Mock The Week.
Foreign reactions to the sport of hurling is something we take great enjoyment of at Balls.ie, as the rest of the World just can't seem to grasp the speed and physicality of the game.
