Notre Dame Info

I went to Notre Dame this weekend, and I thought I'd share a couple of quick observations with you.

When Tammi tells you that she likes to talk, it ain't a lie. But for her first ND game, she underwent a strange transformation... think Rain Man... "yeah, happy... definitely happy. Christmas and birthdays... yeah." "I'm so happy..." "Formigable game... yeah, definitely football." "I just need to feed him." Put the occasional three minute pause in there, and you've got her conversation for the day. Now that was a treat...

ND fans don't seem to like it when you take pics like this:

Yes, Virginia, that was a UT touchdown, and yes, he was really that wide open. Heheh...

Trying to take pictures of ND cheerleaders makes your camera batteries go dead... and it sure as hell ain't because they're bad looking. Two words. Hot... and Spankies. mmmMMMMmmmm

Once we finally got to our seats, the only scoring done by ND was a nice 78 yd punt return by Zbikowski... all else was done by UT. Using the excuse of "rain," Tammi made me leave, so that I wouldn't "get sicker." Unhindered by my opposition, TD Jesus propelled ND to a victory. Yeah... fourth quarter was just after we left. Go figure...

South Bend has an ungodly amount of Catholics running about. Yes, I know that their denomination isn't based on a catheter fetish... now. They just creep me out... especially with that mural of Touchdown Jesus.... (shudder)

However, with great numbers of Catholics, comes large numbers of Catholic School Girls... a fact not unnoticed by an eye such as mine. It more than balances out.

All in all, a very pleasant experience.

I almost feel betrayed. ND? Go 'Canes!

Touchdown Jesus? LOL!

DUDE! Pictures would have been nice... But the dead batteries was god punishing you for having lustful thoughts about his saintly cheerleaders!

Sorry... I can't keep a straight face anymore.

Huh. I always thought that was Field Goal Jesus...

Somewhere in Florida, there's a wide left, and wide right Jesus I hear. ;)

A buddy of mine ventured to ND for a game one time. He said it was awesome, and he was a Buckeye fan, so it had to be good.

Maybe, we(Buck's and Irish) can meet up in a Bowl game somewhere along the way...

I'm speechless. REALLY.

How did I miss all that?!?! Were we at the same game????

Some of the Usuals were in a local Irish saloon/eatery, which is a Notre Dame stronghold, during that game. There was a three hundred pound guy who would put on a gold helmet and walk around the saloon every time the Notre Dame Fight Song played. No one gave him any shit, and I was damned glad I didn't buy one of those U of T hats at the airport. I'd have gotten my ass kicked.

.. yeah, Jimbo... UT got their asses handed to them in the 4th quarter... great bloody hell.... it was like UT/LSU except in reverse...

Well, the Touch Down Jesus is better than the egg beater Jesus in Huntsville, AL...
