Éire Go Brách

My last name may not give it away, but I bet you my first and middle names do: Andrew David Michael Francis-Xavier. My sister's name: Erin-Quinn Marie.

Yup. You guessed it. I'm an Irishman. And an Irish Catholic to boot.

Today being an important day and all, I of course forgot to put together a piece on the great Irish tradition in sports. Bone-head move on my part, admittedly. So instead I have gathered a few songs together to help us celebrate this most festive day. On behalf of myself and the other Micks and this site (but not the Prods), Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

May your glass be ever full. May the roof over your head be always strong. And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.
