Without any actual sport to focus on at the moment, we've decided here at Off The Ball to take a look at the wonderfully weird world of press launches involving GAA players.
A few standard rules makes themselves apparent as one sifts through photographs of the last 10 to 15 years in search of the stand-out shots.
If you required a footballer or hurler to help sell your product or idea, there's a good chance Marty Clarke of Down or Joe Canning of Galway would be involved along the way. Furthermore, if Croke Park is off the agenda for some of these outdoor events, only one's imagination was the limit when it came to selecting the location.
Without further ado, here's a selection of the very best photographs we could find of the GAA's many, many, many press launches over the years.
