If you weren’t aware, before he was the world’s most famous fighter and mixed martial artist, Conor McGregor was a plumber in Ireland living off welfare. That was liiike, six or seven years ago.
Now, “The Notorious” sits atop a whiskey empire as a multi-multi-multi-millionaire, but hasn’t forgotten where he came from one bit. He stood atop the Chicago plumber’s float today, proudly hoisting a plunger as Backstreet Boys blared through the Windy City, and creating one of the funniest, most bizarre, yet inspiring visuals St. Patty’s Day weekend will have to offer.
Sláinte, Conor! Sláinte!
