In celebration of St. Patrick's Day, over several Guinness, my friends and I decided to compile a list of the best African-American athletes whose names could be confused for Irish guys.

Fortunately, I googled the topic and came up with 17 blogs that have already covered it. We hate those bloggers.

However, we've added two names to the list. Please fell free to contribute others!

Honorary Captains:

1. Mean Joe Greene
2. "Spud" Webb
