Ten years ago I watched the smoke billow out of the World Trade Center on TV in horror while I desperately tried to complete the key paper to my MA degree, laying out a new methodology for determining Dynasty XIII sculpture based on a relief from Elephantine. After handing in the paper I headed to Fitzpatrick's, deciding I'd earned a night out and it was the only place I could imagine going by myself, a dive but comfortable. And so began the bizarre odyssey with Donal, Declan and the other Irishman, with Timmy, Gene and Johnny as referees and coaches.
