Faith an' begorrah*!! We (sorta) celebrate St. Paddy's Day After with games!
greentrain greentrain goo greentrain greentrain



Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.
(And game like you don't care who wins)!**


Monday crowd is rocking steadily around 25 players each week, and tho scheduled 6:00-10:00pm, we've been staying until 1:00am almost every week! devil

My favorite "Irish"-ism:
Here's to lyin', cheatin', stealin', and drinkin'! ***
If you're gonna lie, lie for a friend!
If you're gonna cheat, cheat death!
If you're gonna steal, steal a heart!
And if you're gonna drink, drink with me!

greentrain greentrain goo greentrain greentrain

* As an Irishman, it pained me to type that. It's a "familiar" "Irish" expression, but know you that no self-respecting Irishman ever says that. shake

** Last line was me.

*** Variations on this exist. I prefer one that uses "Fightin" in place of "drinkin" (as I don't drink, and my soccer teams have used the fightin' version). But if we're stickin' to true Irish today, I suppose it has to be drinkin... shake

Gather ’round, ye lads and lasses, set ye for a while
And hearken to me mournful tale about the Emerald Isle
Let’s all raise our glasses high to friends and family gone
And lift our voices in another Irish drinking song

* Ties broken by remaining cash

Kenny was killed in Kilkenny and Claire, she died in Clare
Tip from Tipperary died out in the Derry air
Shannon jumped into the River Shannon** back in June
Ernie fell into the Erne, and Tom is in the Toome


** He went downstream, his Raft went upstream...

“Cleanliness is godliness” me Uncle Pat* would sing
He broke his neck a’slippin’ on a bar of Irish Spring
O’Grady, he was 80 though his bride was just a pup
He died upon the honeymoon when she got his Irish up
-CHORUS-#


* ...also attributed to Aquaman.

When Timmy Johnson broke his neck it was a cryin’ shame
He wasn’t really Irish, but he went to Notre Dame
McNamara crossed the street and by a bus was hit*
But he was just a Scotsman, so nobody gave a (ARRGHH)

* at least it wasn't a cable car. Mind the gap.

Me drunken Uncle Brendan tried to drive home from the bar
The road rose up to meet him when he fell out of his car
Irony was what befell my great-grand Uncle Sam
He choked upon the very last potato in the land

(Rebellion, Revolution, whatever...)

Conor lived in Ulster town, he used to smuggle arms
Until the British killed him and cut off his lucky charms*
And dear old Father Flanagan, who left the lord’s employ
Drunk on sacramental wine, beneath the altar boy

* hopefully, the onlookers voted by giving a THUMB up or down...
