  • An enigma. A character larger than life.

    Tell your stories, play your music, stomp your feet, wave your hands.

    You are larger than life to this crowd.

    Whiskey-drinking, curse-word using, curmudgeon, that you are.

    People packed in at Milwaukee Irish Fest to laugh along, stomp their feet, clap their hands.

    To listen to your stories. Listen to you talk. Listen as you shout curse words at the top of your lungs.

    You dirty, old man. You rambling bard. You - yes, you with the crowd in the palm of your hands.

    Oh you - yes, you, having the most fun of us all.
