Into the white


“I ran back into a sea of jumping and dancing people. They were up on tables, under tables, going wild. It was like I’d come out the wrong door. Kissing, hugging, skipping, there were men virtually having sex with each other in front of their wives and girlfriends.”

– Roddy Doyle on Kevin Sheedy’s 1990 World Cup goal vs England in My Favorite Year
