Get Well Telf!

telfer-headshot

I was getting excited about the imminent release of Brendan Telfer’s A Life In Sport in the next week or two when the Herald gave me the awful news that’s he’s in an induced coma after a bleed in the brain. I wrote a profile of Telf as my journalism profile a couple of years ago, which we published on DeadBall a couple of weeks back. To hear that he’s in this perilous state fills me with dread, because, as much as we and others take the piss out of him occasionally, he’s pretty much the best sports journalist in the country, and has nose for story like no other. He can be obstinate and old-fashioned, but there is no better interviewer in any field, and I can’t stand the idea of the airwaves being without his mind. Our thoughts are with him and his family.
