It has to be that point, everyone knows that point. Last few seconds of the All-Ireland final. All level. A free is awarded a long way out over at the Cusack stand. Up comes the one and only Stephen Cluxton, the goalkeeper. 80,000 plus fans packed into Croker. He places the ball down, looks at the posts at the Hill 16 end. He calmly takes a few steps back. We all know he has the distance. But the accuracy! I'm looking out through my fingers at this point. What a shot! Yes it's over and Dublin are All-Ireland Football Champions for 2011. What a memory and I was there.
