Happy St Patrick's Day

Everyone knows it is St. Paddy’s Day. Do you know why? Because it’s Patrick Duffy’s birthday. That’s right, before 1951, there was no day for the Irish. Then the boy who would become Bobby Ewing was born, spawning a grand holiday in his honor.

While many remember him as JR’s younger brother on the short-lived and seldom watched show Dallas, I fondly recall his work as Frank Lambert on Step by Step. Some will scoff and say it was just a cheap Brady Bunch knockoff. To that I say Cody, the Code Man, would whip Oliver’s ass.

So before heading off the get shillelagh’d on green lager, take a minute to remember P-Duffy, the patriarch of St. Patrick’s Day.
