Happy St. Patrick's day!


I'll miss the parades and distinctively Irish pubs of St. Paul this year, but the green river in Chicago is probably the best midwest celebration of St. Patty's day.

I've rowed on this river numerous times, straight through downtown with the Sears tower looming over you. Even the residue of eerie green dye in a race just days after March 17 was a bit of an adventure. Felt a little like being in Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.
