Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh!

Today's title is Irish Gaelic for "St. Patrick's Day blessings upon you!" And thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone for your anniversary wishes! :)

Of course I absolutely have one of these! Well, except mine is all green with 4 leaf clovers on the shoulders. (I can't remember what year mine is from.) You can get one of your own here.

This year's WBS St. Patrick's Day jersey brought a little luck of the Irish to Dave Gove (above) on Wednesday (03-12-08) as he recorded his first career hat trick, helping to lead the Baby Pens to victory over the Norfolk Admirals!!!

LATE EDIT: I don't know HOW I forgot to include this in my St. Patrick's Day post. (Too much celebrating, I suppose... Hahaha!) From The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
Irish eyes were smiling Saturday at the American Ireland Fund bash that was painting the town green two days before the greenest day of the year, St. Paddy's Day.

Troy and Sidney Crosby

The East Club Lounge at Heinz Field was transformed into "Crosby's Pub," as a tip o' the hat to honoree and Penguins great Sidney Patrick Crosby (with dad Troy). Guinness flowed as 680 green-ties enjoyed continuous merriment and skirling pipers while sampling a Celtic menu. The leprechauns tallied $900,000 for the pot o' gold raised by guests, who paid $800 a ticket to help promote peace, culture and charity in the Emerald Isle. The irresistible band, Guaranteed Irish, entertained at cocktails while dancers of the Burke-Conroy School kicked up their heels in airs and jigs.
Too bad Sid couldn't partake in the Guinness, eh? ;) Thank you to the anonymous commenter below for mentioning this story.
