Tuesday is St. Patrick’s Day, a day when everybody in the world gets to feel a little bit Irish (and a lotta drunk). But of course there are some people who have a God-given right to feel a little bit more Irish than others because they actually are Irish. And within that group there are those who’ve had a measure of success in professional sports.

Today we’re going to narrow down that group further by looking at Irish-American athletes—or more specifically, the nine best Irish-American athletes of recent memory.

So throw another shrimp on the blarney stone, tighten up your kilt, and do whatever else it is that the Irish traditionally do, so you can better enjoy this list of the nine best Irish-American athletes (plus one honorable mention).
