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.

We spent all told about 2+ hours … [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...]
