Best of our TU Community Blogs, March 17, 2016: Ten for Thursday

So today is a very special day.  It’s a day for wearing green.

Okay, this means that if I can use my woods and irons judiciously, and with a little practice… one quick trip to Augusta, a lucky ricochet bounce off the Eisenhower Tree, and Tiger Woods puts that green jacket on my shoulders…

Yeah, yeah, I know.  And the alarm clock goes off.

Doesn’t matter.  Today is St. Patrick’s Day, and with that comes the traditional wearing of the green, the eating of corned beef and cabbage, and the donning of T-shirts with slogans like “Kiss Me I’m Irish” and “I’m looking over / a three leaf clover / that I overlooked be-three…”

Yeah.  Funny stuff.

Anyways, you didn’t come to today’s blog to read my bad St. Patrick’s Day jokes.  So let’s get to the TRUE reason why you’re here.

Oh wait.  I just have to make one little adjustment.

There.  That’s better.  I mean, it is St. Patrick’s Day and all…
