Whiskey, You're Me Darlin'

Time to start getting warmed up for St. Patrick's Day and prepare yourself for my favorite sport, Competitive Drinking. Nobody parties like the Irish, and tomorrow, we're all Irish. What's your style? Shots of Jameson? Guinness? Both at the same time, a la Shane McGowan? (Interestingly, I once heard that Shane's drink of choice is tequila and grapefruit juice -- mmmm). What makes your Irish Eyes smile? Drop a comment and let us know how you plan on celebrating. In the meantime, here are a few tunes to get you in the spirit, so to speak.

MP3: The Waterboys - "Fisherman's Blues"
MP3: The Pogues - "If I Should Fall From Grace With God"
MP3: The Marlarkey Brothers - "Whiskey, You're The Devil"
MP3: The Tossers - "Nantucket Girl's Song"
MP3: Flogging Molly - "Drunken Lullabies"
MP3: Cruiskeen - "Whiskey In The Jar"
MP3: Flogging Molly - "Rebels Of The Sacred Heart"
MP3: The Pogues - "Irish Rover" (Live from Boston, 1987)

P.S. How are your brackets holding up?
