It's been a pretty arduous 30 hours for fans of Irish sport: Bosnia drawn in the playffs, hammered by Argentina, Billy Walsh emigrating. Faced with such sporting despair this afternoon, I did what I always do when the realities of being an Ireland fan get too heavy for me. I looked at photos of Anthony 'Axel' Foley in various states of bliss and suddenly all was well with the world.
As should you.
