If we're getting into football (soccer) here--being Irish I'm more for Celtic. That's just the way it goes. But the more the merrier.

You need to be a lot more than Irish to support septic, you would be surprised at what their fans sing about.

Not a fan of the footballing Rangers, but always good to see more UK representation.

You always have affection for your own people even when they're being ****ed up.

Ever hear Alistair Hewitt's 'Among proddy dogs and papes'?--great song.

Anyway there's a lot of New York Rangers fans with Irish heritage. The bars all around MSG are mostly Irish as well. Callahan, McDonagh, Boyle about as Irish as they come. And it's not the same here as the football wars back in England and Scotland--though Rangers fans do have a tendency of invading the Devils and Islanders arenas in great numbers.

Cally's mom is Italian. His dad is Irish. Basically he's a working class guy. At least that's what I got out of the hour thing MSG did on him. And truthfully if you're an American you're usually some kind of mix. I have Irish and Lithuanian on one side and French on the other. The Irish and French sides both emigrated to Canada first--the one setting up in Prescott Ontario--just south of Ottawa and the other in Quebec City. They eventually moved south to the United States to work in coal mines and on the railroad. Both my grandfathers fought in World War I. My father in World War II and was about to go into Korea but that's when the armistice was signed.

Supporting Celtic has got nothing to do with being Irish, it's about religion. Celtic for the Catholics, Rangers for the Protestants. Most Irish people tend to be Catholic.

wrong its to do with politics. Celtic fans tend to support the IRA and their murderous campaign against anything British whereas Rangers are very proud to be British and support the union and the monarchy. There are Irish catholic Rangers fans but catholics do tend to support Celtic.

But those political views stem from the religious backgrounds.

Anyway we aren't allowed to discuss politics here, have you ever been to a Braehead Clan game? If no there's nothing better than watching hockey live and you will be boosting the British game at the same time.

Yeah it's pretty dull on the TV and the commentators are terrible, being a southerner I don't really care for the Elite league but I'm hoping I'll get to be a linesman there in a few years, I line in the EPL right now. You should definitely go, it looks crap on the TV but when you watch live there is the atmosphere and the standard looks a lot better and it's a good day out.
