Despite my apparent sabbatical from the blog recently, I couldn’t miss the 4th Annual Condition: Poor St. Patricks Day Parade of Cards, once again led by the Grand Marshal, the Mets’ own “Irish Hammer” Daniel Murphy. So without further ado, let’s get to the wearin’ o’ the green. Grand Marshall Murphy, lead the way.
