Athletes With Irish Connections

It's St. Patrick's Day. When I was younger, that meant everyone was celebrating at their local watering hole. In 2015, it means everyone is celebrating on Twitter. Either way, be sure to take a minute to click through the above gallery of Athletes with Irish Connections (click here for full-size gallery). And here's a gallery of notable Patricks in sports.

Underwater Ice Hockey

Sure you've seen underwater ice hockey before, but have you seen it played in full dive suits with the players not coming up for air until the contest is over? Next time you're in Siberia, give it a try.

Pro Wrestlers on Family Feud

This is the second best piece of journalism in 2015. I still give the nod to Complex's definitive ranking of every American Gladiator. 

P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

It's St. Patrick's Day. Who else would I feature besides Kathy Ireland (click here for full-size version).

Hot Clicks Giveaway: Top Five on DVD/Blu Ray

Not only is today St. Patty's Day, but also it's the official DVD/Blu Ray release of Chris Rock's hit movie, Top Five. And as luck would have it, I have five copies to give away. I'll send them to the 25th, 50th, 100th, 150th and 200th person who emails me (andy_gray@simail.com) the name of this morning's LLOD. Please make the subject line "Top Five."

Update (6:12 a.m.): Contest is closed. Another contest coming in Wednesday's P.M. Clicks. Stay tuned.

Tom Brady's Message to Vince Wilfork

V. Stiviano's Message to Donald Sterling


" I will forever be your ANGEL " Don't let the evil witch of the west Rochelle (Shelly) Sterling suck the living life out of you. I'm here for you. I've always been here. I'm not going anywhere. I'm turning thee other cheek while unveiling the truth. Mask the pain with LOVE and compassion for thy enemy. When things get hard wear the visor and let your tears of joy flow. There's nothing you can't handle. Don't give up on life now. You know the truth and that's all that matters. This too shall pass. I LOVE you. I've learn from some of the best people in the world. Lucky and very bless and so it is. #LATimes #LosAngelesTimes #News #NYTimes #NewYorkTimes #TheNewYorkBestSellers #1 #Author #Writer #NewsWeek #WashingtonPost #ChicagoTribune #Crown #Publishers #Publishing #RandomHouse #TheNewyorker #WallStreetJournal #Change #Politics #DonaldTSterling #LOVES #VStiviano LOVE is my only motivation.
