Your St. Patrick's Day mission: Get as drunk as this guy...

Here's a look at an excellent, and exceedingly timely, moment in local TV history: Channel 31's coverage of this year's St. Patrick's Day parade. What's so great about it? The report is largely narrated by Adam, a boisterous reveler who spends the better part of two minutes whooping with delight, commenting on traffic accidents and saluting St. Bernards, because any dog that carries whiskey is all right by him. Click above for more St. Patty's inspiration than the average liver can stand. And if you're around town tonight and see Adam trying to get behind the wheel, drag him to the nearest bar instead. Both of you will be glad you did.
