This NSFW St. Patrick’s Day News Blooper Is Utterly Ridiculous

St. Patrick’s Day festivities were in full swing in Chicago this weekend, from the dyed green river to the excitement of the Big Ten tournament.

The deal did come with the proviso that the group not wear shirts or hold signs that make specific reference to sexual orientation, but it was nonetheless enough for Walsh to praise the agreement and subsequent invitation as the “biggest step in 20 years” toward full inclusion.
