No I'm not having little leprechauns or anything. I'm going to regale you with our adventures to Chicago and South Bend for the Notre Dame vs. Utah game. Yes my team got their bottoms handed to them on a platter.
However, we had the best time ever. If you have the chance to visit Chicago, do so. It's one of the cleanest cities we've been too. And the sights are awesome. But that wasn't the best part of our trip, it was South Bend and the campus of Notre Dame.
I've never experienced such beautiful, courteous, nice, friendly--and the list goes on and on--people. We were greeted, and thanked for visiting, over and over. Friday we went on a tour of the campus, during which I had to refrain from chanting, Rudy, Rudy! but I did, barely. I need to watch the movie again, just so I can point and say, I was there.
We watched as they lined up in their speedos, goggles and their blow up floaties ready to jump in. And one security officer came by and told them it wasn't going to happen any more. And they didn't even try to disobey.
The band was a small city, in number that is, and they were so good they sent goosebumps down your spine.
Well I'll stop boring you and post some pictures instead. I highly recommend a trip there even if you don't see a ball game!
