I can`t help thinking the world has gone slightly mad sometimes.
Having a cursory look around the internet tonight, I came across an article that made me chuckle.
Some people have got a little carried away by the goal scoring exploits of the Northern Ireland international during the European Championship qualifiers whereby he set a new scoring record, they want Healy to receive recognition, in the form of a gong, in the Queen`s Birthday Honours List later this month.
Much of the support is coming from those in the Irish province with the Killyleagh councillor, William Walker, leading the support when he remarks,
'David has brought all sections of our community together through sport and by his actions on the pitch has revived Northern Ireland football.'
'What a lot of people don't realise is the enormous amount of work he is involved in for various charities. Only recently he was back home highlighting the problems of child obesity."
'No one deserves such an award more than David Healy. The time is now right.'
Whilst we find the charitable exploits very honourable, we can`t help but think this is a big no-no, especially for a few years yet.
What next, a knighthood for Danny Murphy for scoring the goal that kept us up?
As you`ve gathered, I`m not really a fan of the honours system but I`d love to hear your views!
