Are You Ready For Some Sun Bowl?

Getting ready here! Sadly, I won't be attending (thanks to a failure of friends who can afford to go), but I will be off to Chicago to watch the game with friends. Should be fun!

The last time I posted was on July 27, 2010 (which is obvious if you just look at the next post down, but I am a captain of stating the obvious, so I'm doing it).

It's not like I have some great excuse for not posting. While I did change jobs in that time period, I have had the time to post. I've had the good fortune to attend several games this season. I might have even had some stellar insight (though that's probably unlikely). What I haven't had is the motivation to post. Really, it has been like this for a couple years. I was just tired of losing, of not having hope that things were going to get any better. And the beginning of the season didn't help matters. It was easy for me to just ignore my blog, to find an excuse not to post. I couldn't build up the enthusiasm to even post links, as easy as that is.

But, after last night's win over USC (exactly four months after the day I last posted), that motivation is back. Thank you, Irish. See you in Orlando (or wherever) - and I can't wait to be there with you!

39 Days...And the Grotto Goes Up in Flames

Well, maybe not so dramatic as that. But evidently the grotto caught on fire Monday night, 40 days before the first game. That has to be a sign of something...

43 Days And Counting...

Where will you be in 43 days? I'll be somewhere on the Notre Dame campus, having a beer (take that, Excise Police!) and a brat.

So close...

Edit: If you're looking for something to enjoy today, check out this video of Michael Floyd playing some softball against the ND Ladies - suffice to say, I'm pretty sure Golden Tate would have done better.

Look Who Is At The Ballgame

Turned on the television to watch the White Sox game, and look who's sitting behind the batter:

Coach Weis! It's quite distracting.

Welcome to Blue Gold Week!

Headed to ND at the end of the week for the festivities, but, barring work intruding (a real possibility), I will have multiple posts over the course of the week - all involving tailgating and tailgating recipes, as I attempt to come up with some new tastes for parking lot cuisine.

Is It Friday Yet? - And Getting Amped Up for Utah

I woke up this morning super excited about it being Friday and the start of spring football...yeah, needless to say (but I will anyway), when I realized it was Thursday, I was quite disappointed. On the plus side, less than a month until Blue Gold!

A quick link this morning, via The Wiz of Odds - it appears that people in Utah find northern Indiana to be an enticing November vacation destination, as Utah has way more requests for tickets to the ND-Utah game than they have actual tickets. But my fave part is when the school hits up their donors for more money:
"This is turning into the biggest road game in the history of the program," Knuth said. "There are a lot of good things going on with the program and people are excited."
Fans who are worried about getting tickets to the game can still better their chances by donating more money before the May 15 deadline, Knuth said.
Always nice to see fans of other teams being the ones hit up for the bigger donation.
