VIDEO: If your GAA nickname is Big Balls, you better have the stones to back it up

Walking the walk

With great nicknames comes great responsibility.

The end-line challenge is sweeping the GAA-loving nation quicker than a 2003 Opel Corsa that has just been in for an NCT tune-up.

The latest set of brave souls to undertake this daunting, skill-based test were Garvan Dolan, Cormac Sheehy and sharp-shooter Frankie ‘Big Balls’ Dolan.

To paraphrase The Big Lebowski’s Stranger, we won’t say a hero, ’cause, what’s a hero? But sometimes, there’s a man. And I’m talkin’ about Big Balls here. Sometimes, there’s a man, well, he’s the man for his time and place.

Cheers to Michael Holland for tweeting this nifty video along to us and Marc Gavin for the steady camera-work and commentary.
