The opening Thursday of the NCAA tournament just happens to fall on St. Patrick's Day in 2016, making for one of the least productive work days of the year. UFC superstar Conor McGregor celebrated the occasion with a message for his Irish fans. 

Comments to the photo from Nate Diaz fans and McGregor haters are (still) brutal, but McGregor's girlfriend Dee Devlin shared this joyous photo of the featherweight champion, and he couldn't look happier.
