Parade Politics ?

So I did go To The Parade for St. Pats Day .... And to be honest I had debated how to post about the Parade because I don't want to make a political post cause it kinda isn't worth it ... But how far should one go with it being a political post .... I'm still not sure so I guess what I will say is this and not connect it to anything .....

-I am Irish but I'm not like a lot of Irish People or Sterotype ones
--Not Really a fan of Irish Music Now it is pretty good when Morphed with like Punk or Metal or HardRock
--Food Wise I don't like Irish Food really No Corn Beef and Cabbage yuck Now I do like shepherd's Pie but I grew up with Beef not lamb that is the real way I guess
--I don't like beer not Green not Guiness
--I have had some good Jack Daniels but that is Tennessee not Irish Whisky and flavored version Never tried any brand of Irish Whiskey
--Never been to Ireland it would be cool to go but Not on the top of list so many other places maybe as part of a big tour would be fun
--Never been to South Buffalo or is that Old First Ward Parade

Now that being said though I like The Bag Pipes and Irish dancing is pretty cool .... And I love Shamrock Shakes ... And think the Parade is a lot of fun more a fan of watching then partaking But I also watch stuff on Sunday nights and wake up early on Mondays so that might be a factor... But I would love to get trashed :) have in past and it was a blast and yes I would like to some year check out a parade in another city and see where they turn the water green in person ....

Now That being said I love that on that one day a year everyone is Irish or maybe it is just in #Buffalo we turn everything into a drinking Holiday or add a drinking Element to every holiday :) I am Not offended , It doesn't bother me that people put on bad fake accents :) HA and that some people do the Notrde Dame Fighting Irish thing and use it as an excuse to drink and fight .... And years back when SNL came out with a bit about a CD or Irish Fighting songs I laughed my ass off .... Hey everyone becomes Italian a little bit (or maybe I'm just a west sider ) for the festival ... Some people become Polish for some time at Dyngus day.... I think it is great ... Ok so some photos ......

I tried to get photos that covers the scene But it is kinda tough to do or is beyond my level ..... Think you have to be a Pro then you can like walk up to people and get the scene ? was a fun time though

-P.S.

I do not know if it has been an Issue and didn't hear about it this year in the News in Buffalo or about NYC or Boston it was that you could be gay and that was fine but you could not be a gay cause ... I disagree ... I think that if you are Irish and You have a group then it is fine to be in the Parade .... But I kinda get that they don't want it to turn into a Pride Parade and that there are a lot of traditional values But if you can have Iron Makers and Unions and fire trucks why can't you gays being out in the Parade.... That would be fine... Again I have no idea if that was ever an issue in Buffalo though ......

St. Pats ? Bandits The 13th

So Today is Friday The 13th and the Bandits had it as Fright Night ... The Bandits won and it was a lot of Fun they beat The Toronto Rock and they did have some fights at the end ..... On Saturday Night they play in Toronto... I bet that would be a lot of fun go to Toronto stay over and yell if any of your voice left and I assume they have a huge Parade as well .....

I would not know really But I assume they have a big St. Pats that would be fun I bet... I have had some great days with you peeps , and been before with my Family.... Now there is a way the Bandits Tie in.... They Have a bag Piper before the game as Part of the intro... There was a point in Time when the guy who did the Bag Pipes was from the Band Jackdaw .... He knew that I know of one of (e:peep) and maybe more ... Saw them I think twice at two different places for the Holiday but not sure but all ways a crazy and fun time ..... No idea if they are still around or make new music any more .....

I have to admit that I have never been to the Parade that is in South Buffalo on Saturday... Now in terms of the Parade on Sunday there is a part of me that thinks they should not have taken away the snow.... Let the kids sit on the snow banks and me so I can see over people in the street ... HA but what about the drunks (nothing wrong with that ) falling off of them .....

That brings up another Point. I saw an article where they claim that cops will be cracking down on open containers ... I have trouble believing that ... I could see if it is not on the Parade route ... Now also I think Coors is sponsoring a program and cabs and things.... I would seem that what would make sense for Bars and the cops is to let people drink in front or by the bars where they have the Barricades and then that would have families who don't want to drink in other areas that would seem to make the most sense ? not saying that is what they are doing but it seems like that is the goal :) ?

Mayan Ruins

So as part of the Cruise one of the ports was Cozumel I picked to go see the Tulum Ruins.... Yes with both ports there was stress just all the getting ready and having to be a certain place at certain time and not knowing how stuff was going to go down .... But I made it through it .... Now the one bad thing about it is it takes a lot of time to get there you take a boat ride that you have to get on that is very very bouncy and got some people sick ... IF I would have bought a Drink I would have Puked to.... I saw things in Mexico that I didn't get pictures of wasn't fast enough like a guy with some kind of little big cat of some kind and other animals .... Then On the way back there was a place to eat and drink but I didn't eat there cause of the boat ride I would be on later and also a bus trip was part of it..... Now at the ruins there was a beach but it was not safe to swim it was closed... And I did learn a lot it was a lot of fun .....

Bandits Win and Arena

So I do still Have Bandits Season Tickets and Today I am going to a WWE House Show at the Arena... I know the people who work there like at all NHL Arenas and some places have multiple sports like Buffalo do a great job doing a change over.... I have no idea what they do and if they pull up rug and then lay down stuff ... If it is Hockey do they just cover the ice like they use to with those boards ..... Or is that the Job of the WWE and I wonder what time they came in... Not to mention they have to have the ring set up before the event so wrestlers can hit it first and kinda go over what they do ..... It is a 1PM Bell Time and the game ended at close to 10 .... But they always do a great Job .... But I wonder how much pressure is on the crews to get it all set up ......

It was a great Bandits Game last night and the Bandits won.... I forget the New Goalies Name but he did a Victory lap before the rest of the team did that was kinda cool a few pics .....
