Illini football sings a victory song

I saw this happen after the game today and thought it was, well, sweet. During the game both the football team and the band perform but rarely do they interact. I liked this because they stood there, looked at each other, and sang together. It was like "we did it, together."

Why does Dublin O’Neil’s have coins in its wall?

So we just sat down to dinner here at Dublins and noticed there are coins placed in the cracks of the wall, by patrons I assume. They aren't fixed with a glue. But they are all throughout the wall! Pretty cool. What is this all about? Perhaps an old Irish pub tradition?
