As Lee Keegan put it, 2017 ended with "cruel disappointment" for him on the Gaelic football field as the 2016 Footballer of the Year again just missed out on All Ireland honours with Mayo in September despite scoring a goal in a second successive final.
As Dublin's Dean Rock prepared to kick the winning point, Keegan threw a GPS in his direction which ultimately didn't put off the Ballymun Kickhams club man.
"I suppose in hindsight, it's probably something that shouldn't be done or even thought of," Keegan admitted of that incident as he joined Nathan for a chat about a year of sheer highs and lows.
"You have to credit Dean Rock, he didn't bat an eyelid. He was never going to miss to be honest, he's that good a free-taker and you have to respect that."
He added that the way Rock pointed that winning free is a "testament to his never and character".
In the meantime, Keegan was the subject of since debunked rumours that were circulating regarding his health and in his chat with Nathan, the Westport club man discussed that issue.
"My partner originally just made me aware that there was a bit of general talk around the town first and then went around the county," he said.
"Me being a bit of a feather head, I don't really pay too much attention to what goes on most days.
"I didn't realise it was going to take off the way it did. I can definitely clarify I'm in perfect health. [The rumours] definitely took off quick and that was the first time I was made aware of it."

He added that it "became a bit of a circus for about two or three weeks".
The 28 year old also spoke about having keyhole surgery on his hip and explained that "it was nothing serious" but had been getting a little bit sore as 2017 progressed. In terms of return date, he feels making it back for a part of the 2018 Allianz League campaign is achievable.
At club level, former Mayo manager James Horan has taken charge of Westport and Keegan is looking forward to his input.
"Very positive news for us," he said.
"It's very exciting times for Westport GAA."
