SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- It's a dilemma for SU followers and St. Patrick's Day fanatics, as the Orange take on their greatest Big East rival during the City of Syracuse's annual Saint Patrick's Parade.
Most have probably figured out by now which event they'll be focusing on, but what about their wardrobe? Will it be orange for SU or green for the holiday?
A few local shirt stores are helping to make that decision easier. Manny's and Shirt World, both located on Marshall Street, are now offering green SU shirts and hoodies.
Manny's manager said it's a great way for fans to represent both events.
"We're still bleeding orange inside, but we're going green for a couple days here for the St. Paddy's Day Parade and Saint Paddy's Day next week. So, we'll have plenty of green in the store," said Bill Nester, Manny's store manager.
Both Manny's and Shirt World will open shop at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, leaving plenty of time to grab your shirts before the parade starts at noon.
