Ireland asks for W.C. spot

Ireland wants a World Cup field of 33. The Republic wants an honorary berth due to the legendary Henry hand-swat assist.

If the Irish can come up with a tournament that fits an odd number of teams, I'd consider not laughing at them so much.

Nope, still hysterical.

Sure they think they were wronged, but I'm pretty sure Ireland got an extra point or two in qualifying for an equally abhorrent handball decision a while back.

Unless I don't remember this one correctly.
