Sports on Canadian TV: Saturday, March 17, 2012

Seeing as Josh stole the Dropkick Murphy’s for yesterday’s post, I had to scramble for another Irish band in honour of St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow (Saturday). After considering old-school U2 (before Bono became a douche), and a band that would take the ‘video of the day’ post to a new low (Westlife), I went with a song I forgot existed, but I think was pretty popular at the time.
