That Argentina haven't won the Copa América since 1993 - i.e ten tournaments in a row without success. That's a pretty terrible record considering the calibre of player that's been available to them over the last three decades.

The Lost Boys - Wikipedia

The original poster for the The Lost Boys is actually a painting not a photo collage. The detail is phenomenal, though if you zoom in on Michael's sunglasses you can see defined brush strokes.

Brian O'Donovan from RTE news (the US correspondent) has the most reporter way of speaking of all time. 

He speaks exactly like this lad taking the piss

Talk about punching above your weight.

Agreed. 

Ronan can definitely do a lot better than her. 


She looks like the actress who played Don Draper's daughter in Mad Men.

Fair enough. I've never seen mad men so I'll take your word for it. LOL

He mentioned Magma alright. He classed it as psychedelic music, so I kind of just presumed it was dance, could be prog rock but couldn't really tell the difference.
They showed a clip of him in action and the audience were more swaying than dancing.

Are you sure it is dance music? I know he is a massive fan of prog rock and has done radio shows and DJ sets on it. I think his favourite band is Magma, a well-known French prog band. I am not sure how he listens to it, but different strokes...

Turned on Sunday Brunch yesterday and thought it was Graham Lineham too.

Another one from watching Sunday Brunch yesterday, is that ex snooker player Steve Davis is DJ and plays psychedelic dance music. Never would have guess that.

Whoever wrote the script, do you think we could get them in as EIRE manager?  Maybe they could bring our mannequins to life.
