Who knew when we planned a little family vacation earlier this year that we’d be going to the game where Notre Dame claimed their first BCS number ranking in a long time (ever?). Now, I’m not a huge ND fan but it’s centrally located to a big part of our family and we are all able to get there with a few hours of driving. As a kid we’d head down to game every couple years and the campus is still a really magical place. It was good to go now that I’m older so that I could actually appreciate some of the traditions I didn’t necessarily fully understand as a kid.
Photo of the Day – Touchdown Jesus
Touchdown Jesus was busy last night as the Irish scored 38 points on five touchdowns – most in the first half. We watched the Wake Forest players come off of the buses and enter the stadium and even then we had a feeling it was going to be a long day. I’m a little guy (5’7″. 175 pounds) and therefore football players usually overwhelm me with how massively large they are. The WF team didn’t do that – for the most part they were on the small side and knowing there record was 5-5 I knew they were in for a long day. My little second cousins were happy with the blow out because they got to cheer alot and because it was senior day I suppose I was happy too because the senior football players were able to leave the field mid-game to a gigantic standing ovation. I can’t imagine the chills that go down your spine when you have 79,000 people standing and chanting your name.
