There Is A Frankly Stupid Amount Of Top Quality Sport On TV This Weekend

There Is A Frankly Stupid Amount Of Top Quality Sport On TV This Weekend

We have a bit of a weird relationship with live sport at the minute.

It is one of the few avenues to keep people entertained in current times, with little else left to occupy our weekends.

However, there is a certain sense of fatigue when it comes to sitting down to watch it at this stage. The Premier League has been bombarding us with games, while the international break hardly did too much to further enthuse Irish football fans. The GAA having yet to start is also a blow.

Then you have the fact that any events that do take place usually do so in front of an empty stadium. There's only so much artificial crowd noise that you can take.

And yet, we couldn't be more excited for this weekend's action. After all, this is no ordinary weekend of sport.

Here's what you have to look forward to.
