OK, I promise not to turn this into a sports blog, but they have done it to me once again. My Fighting Irish have given me cause for hope yet once again that they can overcome the obstacles we all face and the obstacles that come with being the University of Notre Dame. They might actually win the national championship! You’ll notice the stated goal is not to just make the playoff, but to WIN. Unfortunately, I still burn from the ass-whipping Alabama gave us the last time we made the CFP. I don’t like Alabama fans. Those stupid makeshift toilet paper rolls “Roll Tide Roll” doo-dads are NOT clever, not even funny. Notre Dame has the Blessed Virgin Mary and they have toilet paper. To each his own. I have been to many ND games in different states and my top 3 best fans (based on enthusiasm, CLASS, and loudness): 1—Michigan (Don’t like the team, but their fans kick ass), 2—Georgia (nonstop party), and 3—USC (students rock, and the older fans all look tan, rich, and unconcerned about football). The WORST: 1—Florida State (that fucking Tomahawk Chop chant), 2—Ohio State (they were arrogant even when they were not winning), and 3—Oklahoma (I love EVERYTHING about the state of Oklahoma, but the OU fans). For some unexplained reason, they believe by divine right they should always have the best college quarterback and be penciled into the CFP every year. Who the hell do they think they are? Notre Dame?
I include several thoughts on college football in my book EMOTIONS: Not Your Mama’s ABCs!:
….My impartial take is simply everyone is a Notre Dame fan; some just refuse to admit it. In the Final Walk up to the pearly gates of heaven, those standing in line as they approach St. Peter will undergo a slight metamorphosis. Forget “On Wisconsin,” “Hail to the Victors,” and “Fight On.” Inching closer to FINAL ADMITTANCE through the gates (and I have NO doubts about this), EVERYONE will start humming the Notre Dame Victory March.
Just in case.
