With all due respect to Irish people everywhere — I cannot wear green, and if you’re reading this, I know you can’t either.
Well, in honor of our dedication to the city of Los Angeles and its sports franchise (maybe more so for our Celtic hate), The Lakers Nation would like to flip the script for every St. Patrick’s Day here on out. We’re calling on all Lakers fans everywhere to dump the green for purple and gold. Now, we understand the troubles that come with not wearing traditional green, but I assure you all — if you live in the greater Los Angeles area, people will understand, you will be spared.
Remember, its always better to get a pinch or two, than lose your pride.
Note: Alternative names for this annual day have been considered…
St. West’s Day
St. Bryant’s Day
Purple & Gold Day
Buck Foston Day (not very tasteful)
St. Paulina Pierce’s Day
We decided to just stick with St. Patrick’s day, just give it a bit of twist.
This has been a public service announcement from the offices (plural) of The Lakers Nation.
