As many of our readers know, we are big Notre Dame fans. I mean we bleed gold and blue despite never attending the college and only stepping foot on campus for a few football games over our lifetime.
I was in a business meeting with a young man like myself and we exchanged pleasantries and the like. When we mentioned what college we went to, he replied “Notre Dame.” So right away I trusted the guy with my child I may or may not have somewhere in Panama, FL. As I was asking him all types of questions, he stops me and goes…”I went to Notre Dame College…in Ohio.” WHAT?
Is going to Notre Dame College, which I am sure is a fine Catholic institution, worse than not ever going to Notre Dame and still being a die hard fan as if your ancestors have been going there since the doors have opened? I mean some schools should only have the original in any way shape or form. Imagine saying “I go to Stanford..community college.” Or whenever I hear an ad for “Northwestern College.” I always imagine someone telling me they went to Northwestern and automatically assume they’re a Wildcat when actually they went to Northwestern College. I guess they’re technically not lying.
The Spring Practice “Blue & Gold Game” is only weeks away. Never too early to start thinking about next season!
