Potato Blight Led to Two Most Successful Sports Franchises of All-Time

Between 1845 and 1852, all of the potatoes in Ireland started to die and nobody knew why, marking the onset of what would become known as the Great Irish Potato Famine, a catastrophic event that reshaped Irish society and led to widespread suffering and mass starvation. However, from this tragedy, two positives would emerge: the formation of the two most successful sports franchises in history, each with the most championships in their respective leagues—the Boston Celtics in the NBA and Celtic FC in Scottish football—both deeply rooted in the cultural resilience and spirit fostered by Irish immigrants.

Instead of protesting outside of a Boston courthouse about whether or not Karen Read murdered her police officer boyfriend, it is much more fun to support the Boston Celtics and Celtic FC. Both are champions of the world, today!

For Celtic FC, they are champions in both Scotland's men's and women's leagues.

For Celtic FC, they have Celtic Park, which is similar to MLB's Fenway Park. Both have rich histories that span over a century. Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox since 1912, is one of the oldest baseball stadiums in the United States. Similarly, Celtic Park, home to Celtic FC since 1892, holds a significant place in the history of Scottish football.

Although the Boston Celtics are privately held, they are about to be sold for a record-breaking figure of perhaps $7-$8 billion and this will create a stampede of investors loading up with shares of Celtic plc (LSE: CCP) or CLTFF, which will likely become one of NIA's most successful stock suggestions of all time!
