No one parties like the Irish

March 17, 2009

Straight from St. Patrick’s Day parade in Savannah, where there are usually 250,000 revelers here to celebrate.  The parade is now 3 hours long, down from FOUR hours.

Of course, it started with the requisite sirens and uniformed law enforcement. We loves us our cops and so we thoroughly enjoyed their leadership role in the festivities. Men in kilts, who wouldn’t love them? and especially when they’re playing bagpipes. Someone told me the definition of a gentleman is a man who knows how to play the pipes, and doesn’t. Well, that doesn’t apply today, with so many kilt-wearing, bagpipe playing southern gentlemen.
Oh, and can you imagine? The New Jersey Sons of Shilelagh were out in full force.
