Today was a truly memorable and historic day for Waterford Hurling as they claimed their second National Hurling League title … a whopping 44 years after claiming their first. What makes the victory even sweeter though is that fact that they beat a Kilkenny team and denied them their third title in a row in the process – sweet!!!
Most impressive was the late, strong finish put up by Waterford – something they had not been known for in the past, especially against teams like Kilkenny (Cork and Clare too). Sure, we have beaten teams well in the past (from time to time) but usually had a strong lead much earlier in the game. But in this instance, the teams were still level at the start of injury time and to see Waterford put in such a determined, dogged final 4 minutes was very, very pleasing.

Hasbro, Inc. are planning new All-Ireland Edition of the popular board game where each segment on the board will represent a different county in Ireland. However, as there are only 22 squares on the board, then only 22 counties will make it into the final edition. Hasbro have decided to hold an election to determine which counties will succeed.
I also think the fact that Hasbro Ireland has been located in Waterford City since 1976 is of particular importance and this should entitle us to an automatic spot on the board. I mean, how could they possibly consider the game to be legitimate when the very county where it will most likely me manufactured is missing?
I am obviously voting for Waterford and would encourage you to do the same, now!
