I still need to get my student visa for the year. After multiple attempts and hours of waiting in line at the immigration office, I was still waiting on a document that needed to be sent from home before I could get my immigration card. When hearing about this, my assistant coach, who I am convinced knows everyone in the city of Galway, stepped in to see if he could help. He did his thing and brought me to the immigration office for my fourth attempt. With a long line of people waiting to do the same thing I was trying to do, he brought me to the front of the line. He then joked with the man at the counter like they were best friends and in about ten minutes I was approved with my student visa. One day before my game I was now eligible to play. This proved to me that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. Thanks Joe.
