A story.

Back on St. Patrick’s day, I was hanging out with Keith and we wound up at the Claddagh in Mounds View, where Sam joined us after work. We started off in the small outside area initially, with a bite to eat and a pint. While we expected Irish music (being an Irish pub on St. Patrick’s day) we figured out quickly that the band was really a cover band playing various hits. The only actual Irish music I heard was U2, and that’s only really Irish by technical definition. The band was good at what they were playing though, and the songs were good songs, so we went with it.

We started out on the small outside area with a bite to eat and a pint. While we were out there, we watched a small news crew from the local cable channel setting up. They apparently took segments over the music, so they must have had good sound filtering. I was only really sure they were filming when they brought the manager or whoever out for an interview. I couldn’t hear any of the interview over the music, but I got to watch with bemusement, and wonder if it was by design of the band, or simply and expression of humor on the part of the universe at large.

Through the interview, the band in the backround was playing “Dirty Laundry” by Don Henley.  It was beautiful.
