Itís St. Patrickís Day here on the OíPasty Cam, whether youíre Irish or not, itís always a fun time to celebrate this holiday, with everything GREEN! There was a parade happening in Hancock, back in 2001 and the late Daryl Laitila was on hand that day to snap this parade memory. Iím not sure exactly what the young manís sign means, but there sure was a lot of green happening in this shot!

Jumping ahead to 2008 and we have a branch of green in Aladino Mandoliís photo of the bridge over Swedetown Creek on the Maasto Hiito Trails in Hancock. Sure looks like a peaceful place for skiing or snowshoeing.

Then in 2011, Shawn Malone took us to the shores of Lake Superior in Marquette, to view the Aurora Borealis turning the night sky a shade of green, just in time for St. Patrickís Day.

Beth Jukuri had her young granddaughter out snowshoeing with her recently, along a tree lined trail, which fits perfectly in todayís green theme. What a great shot with that little person amongst the blue, green and white.

Our video feature takes us to the St. Patrickís Day Parade in downtown Hancock, back in 2012. Note the lack of snow and people out in shorts and t-shirts. It was an unusual March 17th that year, with 70į and sunshine. We are nowhere near that right now, but in the 40ís for this weekend. At least thatís a step in the right direction!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!! There'll be a parade
and a big celebration in the next town. I hope
everybody stays safe because it seems as though
there's always a bad accident somewhere. Be
responsible, folks.

I love that 2nd picture. And the little boy out
for a hike is a keeper also.

Congrats to the MTU Huskies who beat Jbuck's & my NMU Wildcats 2-0 tonight to win the WCHA CHAMPIONSHIP!! Both programs with new first year head coaches, should be an even better rivalry over the upcoming years!! Good luck to the Huskies who receive an automatic bid to the National Tournament, good luck and make the U.P. proud and bring home the National Championship!!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 12:11 am:

Way to go, Huskies! Now, if only the Wolverines
didn't look so awful in the March Madness
tournament. They should be made to shoot free
throws for hours. Wow! How can they miss so many
of them? Oh well, they had a good run. Go

By Uncle Chuck (Unclechuck) on Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 02:27 am:

I do believe that Michigan won.

By jbuck (Jbuck) on Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 08:22 am:

Yes, was sorry to see our Cats lose; impressive night
for the goalie for the Huskies. UP pride!

You'd think the green team could have brought home
the win on St. Patty's Day!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 12:36 pm:

I saw that. When I typed this, there were 3.7
seconds to go and another turnover. It was
sloppily played and they didn't deserve to win,
but I'm glad they did. That was quite the shot
with under a second to go. Hats off to them. I
still want State to win, though.

I'm glad Michigan won too!

By jbuck (Jbuck) on Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 05:19 pm:

Killer game.

Neither game went the right way today.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 05:22 pm:

So sad that the Spartans lost. There goes my
board, but more importantly, there goes their
season. Izzo should have made them stop shooting
3's. Can't believe they didn't change strategies
when that wasn't working.

By jbuck (Jbuck) on Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 05:24 pm:

Yep! Got 'em in foul trouble, but that wasn't
