O People in Ireland have been celebrating the feast day of St. Patrick on March 17 since sometime during the ninth or tenth century. Its celebrated on March 17 because St. Patrick is believed to have died on March 17, 461. O Some lore regarding St. Patrick says he raised people from the dead. O St. Patrick's Day falls during the Christian season of Lent, when many practicing Christians abstain from eating meat. However, these Lenten prohibitions of meat are typically lifted on St. Patrick's Day, when celebrants are allowed to indulge in traditional Irish meals, which may include Irish bacon. O Though many assume corned beef is a traditional Irish dish, it's not. In fact, corned beef was used by Irish immigrants in New York City as a substitute for Irish bacon, which was more expensive. O About 13 million pints of Guinness are consumed each St. Patrick's Day. That's double the amount consumed on other days.

O Irish soda bread gets its name from the use of baking soda instead of yeast as a leavening agent. O Nearly 35 million U.S. residents claim Irish ancestry. That number is seven times the population of the entire country of Ireland. The U.S. Census Bureau notes that there are more than 144,000 current U.S. residents who were born in Ireland. O There are about 60 churches and cathedrals named for St. Patrick in Ireland. One of the most famous is St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin. O Three-hundred species of plants are considered clover, a grass-like plant. Bees frequently use clover flowers as a prime source of pollen for honey production. O The Druids helped establish the clover as a Celtic charm, and other folklore indicates clovers helped people see fairies and chase the little sprites. O The word "leprechaun" is derived from the Irish "lu chorpain," meaning "small body."w

OTHER FUN FACTS ... St. Patrick was not Irish. He was born in Britain to an aristocratic family. He's credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland, but there were actually monasteries on the island decades before Patrick's time. Now, however, he has about 60 churches named after him in Ireland alone.

Q: I just did an at home whitening and my teeth are aching. How long should I expect to feel this pain? Is there anything I can do to relieve the pain? A: First, you should contact your dentist. He may have a product that you place in your whitening trays that will help with your sensitivity.With any whitening product you generally will experience some degree of tooth and or gum sensitivity. If you have healthy teeth and gums, sensitivity can last from a few hours to a few days. Generally, it will subside after a few hours. Avoiding highly acidic drinks and food (fruits, fruit juices, and sodas) will also help. Using sensitivity toothpaste or over-the-counter fluoride often helps.

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day on River Street Since 1813, Savannah has been celebrating its Irish heritage on St. Patrick's Day. Now the second-largest celebration in the United States, the city's St. Patty's Day parade attracts over 300,000 visitors each year. This year's parade will begin at 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, March 16, and the St. Patrick's Day Celebration on the River festival along historic River Street will keep the party going all weekend long. This year, if you plan to drink alcohol on the streets during St. Patrick's Day weekend, you'll need a wristband. For your how-to guide to enjoying the party with pint in hand, keep reading. What do I get with the wristband? With the wristband, you get to listen to live entertainment and enjoy your adult drinks to-go while you walk around the biggest party of the year. If you only plan to drink in a bar, you don’t need a wristband, but if you plan to join the rest of the revelers in the street, it’s required. Where do I get one? You can get your wristband at one of the 26 booth locations downtown. (See the handy little map below.) Signs will help direct you to one of the white sales tents. Credit cards will be accepted at select booth locations. Someone will check your ID — so don’t leave that behind! Make sure to

hold on to your ID because bars and restaurants are still required to check them, even if you have a wristband on. How much do they cost? You can buy yours for $5 each day. However, you only need a wristband if you plan to drink in the control zone, otherwise known as party central. The control zone is the 36-block area of historic downtown Savannah set aside for the biggest part of the year (again, check out our fancy little map). Also, wristbands will not be required during Tuesday's parade, but they will be needed starting 6 p.m. after the parade is over. Do I have to purchase a wristband


each day? Alas, yes. There will be differently colored wristbands for each day of the festival. Select wristband locations will be open as early as 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 14. Visit for a full list of locations and sales times. Wristband enforcement hours are: Saturday, 10 a.m.–1 a.m.; Sunday, 12:30–10 p.m.; Monday, 11 a.m.–midnight; and Tuesday, postparade, 6–10 p.m. What happens if I forget to get a wristband for the biggest party of the year? You could face a fine and court costs totaling up to $67. Not worth it! You'll be as sad as the little leprechaun

on page 15. What else do I need to know before I get my drink on? To drink on the streets, you need to have your beverage in what Savannahians call a “traveler” — that’s a plastic cup that holds 16 ounces or less. Bottles and cans of alcohol are not permitted on the street. Many restaurants will provide you with to-go cups if you wish to take your alcohol with you. Where is the money going from the wristband sales? Throwing the biggest party in Savannah, paying the bands, cleaning up after you’re long gone — that takes a pretty penny.w

Just another Irish drinking song playlist There’s “lots of fun at Finnegan’s wake” in any version of the song, but The High Kings’ iteration is infectiously lively and catchy. 2. "Whiskey in the Jar," by The High Kings — Another musthave on your playlist, this one’s an adventure tale of a highwayman who robs a rich army captain and then gets duped and betrayed by a pretty girl. Like any good Irish song, it’s got plenty of fun innuendo if you’re willing to look for it. “She stole away me rapier” — did she now? Maybe you should have kept it in your pants — er, sheath. Anyway. 3. "The Old Dun Cow," by Harry O’Donoghue — The local pub catches fire! What do you do? Most people would evacuate, or help put out the fire. In this song, a group of men barricade

1. "Finnegan’s Wake," by The High Kings — This one is a staple of many an Irish drinking song playlist. Tim Finnegan falls off a ladder and his family members, believing him dead, carry him into bed and rally the community for his wake — where they proceed to mourn, get outrageously drunk and, in true Irish fashion, start a brawl.

the cellar while it’s unguarded and try to drink it dry, racing the fire (and, later, the firemen). You thought you were good at keg stands? You’ve got nothing on these guys. 4. "Seven Drunken Nights," by Celtic Thunder — The fellow in the song stumbles home drunk for a week and discovers items clearly belonging to another man strewn around his house. What makes it wonderful, however, is that in each chorus, the wife creates a completely outrageous lie to convince her husband he doesn’t see what he thinks he sees. “What are these boots doing under the bed?” “Dear, those are flowerpots.” “They have laces.” “…Yes. Yes they do.” 5. "Space Shanty," by The Senate — This obviously isn’t a traditional Irish drinking song, but it’s done in a similar style. I wrote

about The Senate’s hilarious lyrics several months ago, and I stand by what I said: “Space Shanty” is clever, funny and perfect for your intoxicated shenanigans. Reach for the whiskey, boys. Reach for the skies. 6. "Another Irish Drinking Song," by Da Vinci’s Notebook — Again, clearly not an authentic Irish song, but its shameless riffing on the tradition is riotously funny. All the verses are full of Irish stereotypes, puns and allusions to other songs or stories. Not that you need to get the references to enjoy the song. My favorite line: “Irony is what befell my great-grand-uncle Sam. / He choked upon the very last potato in the land.” There are, of course, more Irish drinking songs than there are redheads in Ireland, but this list should suffice to get you started. You’re welcome — and have fun!w

I’ll say it bluntly: If you’re celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day without an Irish drinking song playlist, you’re doing it wrong. I’m sure the Irish drinking song has a long and rich history, but let’s be honest: Most of us don’t care about the “noble tradition” so much as we enjoy that rollicking accent, Irish humor and getting happily tipsy. Despite the fact that most Irish drinking songs have dead-depressing lyrics, you can’t help but feel unreasonably cheerful when you hear them — especially, as I stated before, you’ve gotten happily tipsy while listening. Now, I happen to be an amateur connoisseur of Irish drinking songs, and my boyfriend has a wonderful knack for finding great versions of some of the best ones. I am far from an expert on the subject, but if you need a wee bit o’ help starting your drinking song playlist, I’m more than happy to lend a hand.

Eagles aim to join the Dance Eagles enter Sun Belt tournament as No. 2 seed It’s tournament time. This weekend in New Orleans, Georgia Southern is looking to punch a ticket to the Big Dance for the first time since 1992. The Eagles will enter the Sun Belt Conference tournament as Alex the No. 2 seed, which means Southern receives a double bye into the semifinal round. Last week, the Eagles sent their seniors off in style with a Thursday night win over UT Arlington on senior night at Hanner Fieldhouse. The Mavericks jumped out to a 17-point first-half lead, but Southern never panicked. The Eagles closed the gap to six points at halftime and used a 28-7 second-half run to take control of the game and win 76-64. Georgia Southern’s win combined with a Georgia State win at UL Monroe set up a regular season championship game Saturday afternoon in Atlanta. Southern and State were tied for first place with a one-game lead over Monroe and both owned the tie-breaker over the Warhawks, so both knew they had clinched a coveted double bye and that Saturday would determine the regular season champion. In what was Georgia State’s third sellout in program history at the GSU Sports Arena, the Panthers jumped out to an early lead and never really let the Eagles into the game. Southern trailed by 11 at halftime and was able to cut the deficit to four early in the second half, but State immediately countered with a 10-0 run to stretch the lead back into double figures. Southern never got close again as State went on to win 72-55 and win the regular season championship in the process. As a regular season champion, Georgia State not only gets the No. 1

seed in the conference tournament, but should they lose in New Orleans this week, they are guaranteed a bid to the National Invitational Tournament as a consolation prize for winning the regular season title. Brown Georgia Southern will play Saturday afternoon at 4:30 against an opponent to be determined by games earlier in the week. No. 6 South Alabama takes on No. 7 Arkansas-Little Rock Thursday night. The winner of that game will face No. 3 UL Monroe Friday night. Georgia Southern will await the winner of that contest Saturday afternoon and the Eagles will be well rested by the time they take the floor. On the other side of the bracket, No. 5 UT Arlington plays No. 8 Texas State Thursday. The winner will face No. 4 UL Lafayette for the right to play No. 1 Georgia State in the semifinals on Saturday. The championship game will be Sunday at 1 p.m. The winner of the tournament championship will earn the Sun Belt’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Like Southern fans were accustomed to in the SoCon, the Sun Belt is typically a one-bid league, so no team will receive an at-large berth to the dance this season. March Madness is upon us and anything can happen this time of year in college basketball. I sure would love to see my alma mater on my bracket this year. Meanwhile, Georgia Southern women’s basketball closed out its season with a big win over Georgia State Saturday.
