What Should the Big Dog Wear in The St. Patrick’s Parade? [Poll]

The St. Patrick's Parade set for a week from tomorrow (March 14) in Quincy. It will be the 29th year for the parade and over the years I have tried to come up with different things to wear. I even wore a kilt one year and took so much flack over it that I decided to show them and wear it a second consecutive year. The question always comes up though, "Are you going to wear a kilt again this year?"

It’s the End of 2014, Where Did the Year Go?

Happy New Year! Where did the year go? I cannot believe we are celebrating a new year arriving already. Wasn't it just March and the St. Patrick's Parade? Wasn't it just Gus Macker time in May? Wasn't it just July with fireworks going off at the Quincy Gems game? Wasn't it just the last Blues in the District time in September? Wasn't it just Halloween, Thanksgiving and even Christmas? Where does time go?

This is How The St. Patrick’s Parade Started

It was a morning in 1986 when I was working at 99Q Radio with Dennis Oliver. He was just finishing up his morning show and I was beginning my mid-day stint (after working the morning show on WTAD earlier that morning). It was about a week before St. Patrick's Day and I went up to D.O. and said we need to have a St. Patrick's Day Parade in Quincy.

If you ever get the chance to go to Spring Training, whether it be the St. Louis Cardinals, the Chicago Cubs, or any other Major League Baseball team, you should make the trip.
