Happy Paddy's Day to all Irish people everywhere, both fake and real, and especially to the Irish international rugby team, who are on the verge of claiming their first Six Nations Championship today, and to the Irish international cricket team, who are on the verge of claiming a historic one-day international victory over test giants Pakistan.
Good luck to both the rugby and cricket teams today. Hope you do Ireland proud.
Edit: And a Belfast touch judge in Paris has given the championship to France by gifting them an inconclusive try. Shame. Good luck to the cricketers, who are storming the Pakistanis at the moment.
Further edit: Pakistan are 132 all out. That's a stunning display from Ireland. They've given themselves every chance of taking a huge scalp here.
