Notre Dame Fighting Irish Pre-Game Warm Ups

Irish Pre-Game Warm Ups

The past several days we have written about the Notre Dame Marching Band concert at the steps of Bond Hall, about their entrance and music played inside Notre Dame Stadium prior to the Fighting Irish home football game, and about the Notre Dame Bagpipe Band playing at the foot of the Main Administration building (the one with the Golden Dome of Our Lady) all during home game day activities. In these articles there were a few pictures as well as numerous video clips. Today I thought I would … [Read more...]

Notre Dame Football Weekends – Bond Hall Concert

University of Notre Dame Marching Band at Bond Hall

Last year in late October we had the privilege to visit the campus of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana for several days. This included the Friday before a home football game as well as Saturday game day. It is just incredible how many different activities occur on those two days. For those interested in our experiences last year, with lots and lots of pictures and videos feel free to visit our Notre Dame page. This year, for the second year in a row, we had the same … [Read more...]

University of Notre Dame and South Bend Highlights

Golden Dome

Yesterday I wrote about, with pictures and videos, our Fighting Irish Game Day experiences. Today I thought I would wrap up this series of articles by selecting the highlights of our trip. Asking what were my highlights of my week long trip to the campus of the University of Notre Dame and South Bend / Mishawaka is like asking a parent which is their favorite child. However, here we go in no particular order. The people. It is true what they say, that everyone who you meet and talk … [Read more...]

University Of Notre Dame Fighting Irish Game Day

Yesterday we wrote a lengthy article with lots of pictures and videos about the Friday before a home football game at the University of Notre Dame stadium. Today we recount our experiences on Saturday, game day, at the home of the Fighting Irish. First we went to the tail gate of Leon, a local Notre Dame fan we met during the week. Unfortunately when he told us to meet him around 10 am he had forgotten that he had to take his son to his basketball game that morning. So, he did not … [Read more...]

We have been writing (and sharing some of the pictures and videos we have taken) all week about our experiences in and around the campus of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. Today we quickly (because it has been a very long day already and tomorrow is game day ... another long day) write about our activities on the Friday on campus before the football game vs Boston College. It rained very heard during the night and rain was forecasted for most of the day. However, we were … [Read more...]

University of Notre Dame – The Athletic, The Souvenirs and The Spiritual

Notre Dame Heisman Trophies

Yesterday we wrote and showed some of the pictures taken from our first impressions of the campus of the University of Notre Dame from a life long fan's perspective. We now continue this series on our week in South Bend / Mishawaka area. Yesterday we spent all day at the campus doing three different types of activities. One article cannot even come close to all that we experienced, so I will try and summarize our experiences today and leave for later articles in future weeks for more … [Read more...]

On The Road To South Bend and Notre Dame

Irish Guard and Touchdown Jesus

If you are reading article on its publication date, I should be on the road travelling to South Bend, Indiana to spend a week in and around the University of Notre Dame. It is a 7 to 8 hour drive from where I live east of South Bend, so I am told. As I have wrote previously, I have been a fan as long as I can remember. So, this vacation week sees me visiting for the first time ever the campus of the Fighting Irish, doing all the touristy things, and generally just trying to soak it all in. … [Read more...]
