Your boys took a helluva beating...

Yes, that really is a man in South Ossetia riding a tricycle through a war zone wearing a Tyrone GAA jersey.

No, the picture is not photoshopped. It was taken by an Associated Press photographer and was published on the Guardian website last Wednesday.

I can only assume that while the lad is somewhat unhappy about Russia invading his country and looting and destroying it, he might be just a little pleased to hear that his adopted Gaelic football county slaughtered the Dubs at Croker today.

Okay, maybe 'slaughtered' isn't quite the most appropriate word.

Or maybe he's happy about it. Depends whether he's ethnic Georgian or Ossetian. The Ossetians are very pro-Russian.

Those Ossetians who took Russian passports, you mean. As opposed to the Ossetians forced to flee the Russian occupation of the region, who certainly aren't so pro-Russian.
