Summary: The wearing of the green in Manchester.
It had been a long, but mostly peaceful St. Patrick’s day.
Naturally, Gene had thrown out the expected number of references to “thieving, drunken, inbred Micks,” but Sam got the feeling that was just putting on the style.
Late that night, listening to the umpteenth ear-splitting rendition of Whiskey In The Jar, he could have sworn he heard Gene say, “Can’t really blame the blokes. Just fighting for their patch.”
If anyone ever asked him why he’d come back to this time, and especially this man, he’d look them in the eye and say, “Musha rin um du ruma da.”
