In a comment to my post on Los Rangers, a reader notes that the Chicago White Sox (the World Champs, no less!) sell jerseys in Gaelic. Gaelic, I tell you! That’s a foreign language! And, to make matters worse, the reason was to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day–a holiday from overseas!

Here we have stunning visual proof!:

From there your intrepid blogger has discovered that one can order a Boston Red Sox Pedro Martinez St. Patrick’s Day BP Jersey. The insidious nature of this is made clear by the fact that in the AL the pitchers don’t hit! Further, I have discovered that Pedro Martinez (what’s up with the Spanish-sounding name?) wasn’t even born in the United States!

And egads, the Phillies are involved as well! And the Twins!

When will the madness end?!?

    Isn’t Christmas a holiday from overseas? This may run much deeper than we think.

    I don’t see the Irish illegally crossing the border and demanding citizenship.

    c.v.,

    And neither have a substantial percentage of American citizens of Mexican descent. You make my point by equating the usage of Spanish to illegal aliens. There is no cause for an automatic negative reaction to the Spanish language–which is what we have here with the “Los Rangers” jerseys.

    What does Cinco de Mayo, per se, have to do with illegal aliens?

    Further, you don’t think that there were Irish immigrants in the late 19th/early 20th centuries who came into the country illegally?

  4. Sean Hackbarth Says:

    Since immigration laws we pretty much non-existant hardly any immigrant was illegal.

    There are thousands of undocumented Irish in the country RIGHT NOW. And, actually, if you had read any news reports of the marches, you would have seen that Irish illegals were active participants.

    afda:

    Good point. I had forgotten about the Irish illegals. Indeed, there were stories around St. Pat’s Day about those immigrants seeking amnesty.
