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...]

University of Notre Dame Marching Band Performing Inside Notre Dame Stadium

Notre Dame Marching and Alumni Bands in Notre Dame Stadium

Following my recent visit to the campus of the University of Notre Dame to experience a football weekend of the Fighting Irish, I wrote two articles with lots of pictures and video clips on both the Notre Dame Bagpipe Band playing in front of the Main Administration (Golden Dome) building and the Notre Dame Marching Band playing on the steps of Bond Hall, both on the University campus. This article focuses on the University of Notre Dame Marching Band performing inside Notre Dame Stadium in … [Read more...]

University of Notre Dame – Bagpipe Band

Notre Dame Bagpipe Band

A few days ago we wrote about how we spent a few days recently on the campus of the University of Notre Dame and attended a home football game of the Fighting Irish. Today, I thought I would provide some of the short videos of the University of Notre Dame Bagpipe Band taken on September 25, 2010. As part of the game day activities on Saturday's in the fall when there is a home football game, the Bagpipe Band plays a concert on the steps of the Main Administration building on campus. Yes, … [Read more...]

Notre Dame Football Season Tickets

Notre Dame Football Tickets - End Zone Seat

Last week I wrote about the pair of Notre Dame football tickets I purchased for the home game against the Stanford Cardinals from the Notre Dame Ticket Office as part of its 'friends of ND' sale back in July. Well, just a few days ago I obtained another pair from Don, a season ticket holder out in California, for the same game vs Stanford. Don is not able to attend that game and his seats are near the 30 yard line vs the tickets we originally purchased which were in the end zone. Now, why … [Read more...]

Notre Dame Football Tickets 2010

Notre Dame Foot Ball Tickets 2010

Last year I wrote extensively about my first ever trip to South Bend, Indiana to visit the campus of the University of Notre Dame and to also attend a football game of the Fighting Irish. What a thrill. We even now have a Notre Dame page here on DailyHomeRenoTips.com listing all of the articles we wrote about last year's experience with lots of pictures and videos. So this year Harvey (who went with me last year for a guy's road trip) and I had already planned to attend the weekend of the … [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 Football Fridays

Ara Parseghian Statue

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 and The Chicago Blackhawks

DeBartolo Center for the Performing Arts - Regis Philbin Studio Theatre

Two days ago I wrote about and showed pictures from our touring of the campus of the University of Notre Dame. Yesterday, Harvey and I spent the day away from the Notre Dame campus to tour other attractions in South Bend. Wednesday was a very eclectic day. We started by going back to the University for a few specific items. First I wanted to go back to the Grotto to light a candle and say a personal prayer. It agree with those who say that visiting the Grotto is a unique experience … [Read more...]

First Impressions of University of Notre Dame Campus

Golden Dome

Well we have just finished our road trip to our hotel in Mishawaka, Indiana. It took just under 8 hours but with the catching up that Harvey and I did the drive did not seem to take that long at all. Here is a slide show with selected pictures of our travel. We went from Toronto to Sarnia and then across through Michigan, down to Indiana and then across to Mishawaka. Once we checked in around 5 pm or so, we headed to the University of Notre Dame campus for a very, very quick walkabout … [Read more...]

Notre Dame

Go Irish

I have been a diehard fan of the University of Notre Dame for all of my 50+ years on this planet. Like many Fightin' Irish fans, I had previously only seen the campus on television during the home football games in the fall. I never had the chance to see the GO IRISH painted sign on one of the walls within the Joyce Center. Pictures, like the one below the live WebCam of the Golden Dome on top of the Main Administration building (on the right) with the Basilica on the left, were only … [Read more...]
