Posted on 01/04/2013 9:12:00 AM PST by MinorityRepublican
Despite the Roland Emmerich film, I wasn't too worried about the Mayan End-of-the-World scenario, predicted for Dec. 21, 2012. I confess it was an occasional topic of conversation around my home. However, my five children all enjoyed the film, and more than one of them asked me what I thought about the possibility. My answer was always the same:
"If the world does end, I'm glad we're going out with Notre Dame ranked No. 1 in college football. Because that's the way it's supposed to be."
At my answer, my childrenranging in age from 10 to 21simply rolled their eyes. As would, no doubt, fans of Alabama, Michigan, USC, Miami, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Nebraska, Texas, Florida or any other team with a long tradition of football excellence that regularly aspires to be No. 1.
I get that others might feel differently. Growing up, even I wasn't a fan of Notre Dame. I was born in Omaha, and with uncles who'd attended Nebraska, I still retain a fondness for the Cornhuskers. Furthermore, because my father received his doctorate from USCand though I know these are fighting words to my fellow ND alumniI root for the Trojans as well. In fact, I wasn't a fan of Notre Dame football even when I first arrived in South Bend in the fall of 1984. I'm pretty sure I was the only freshman on my dormitory floor who opted not to buy football tickets; I used those quiet Saturday afternoons as a chance to catch up on my studies.

I am rooting for the Crimson Tide.
Roll, Tide! Drown the Domers!
They tell YOU!!
War Eagle and Roll Tide Roll.
Let’s hope their loss is as great as losing their soul to their lord and savior 0bama.
I supported Notre Dame in my youth, when it was still a Catholic institution. Sadly that’s no longer the case. Notre Dame is as Catholic as the Planned Parenthood clinic down the street, less so actually. During 40 Days for Life nobody was arrested for praying the rosary on behalf of the unborn in front of PP. Can’t say the same about Notre Shame.
Not only did they give that man a degree, they also removed or covered all Crucifixes and crosses from his sight at his request. They disgust me.
I think it was Georgetown that covered all the crucifixes, but ND probably would have done that, too.
This clown is a fan of ND, NE, and USC. I bet he’s a cat person as well.
I despise Notre Dame, and want them humiliated next week. Damn those abortion lovers to hell.
I missed that one, can you provide a link?
I know too many people who love Notre Dame. And when you ask them why. They say it’s because they hate Boston College.
They win for each other. Sniff. How touching.
They are too special to win for each other. Alabama - just pay the refs more than ND and ROLL TIDE.
I’d say that’s a very dedicated Bama fan. But I could be wrong. But there might be some people around my parts with Lombardi’s mug tattooed somewhere on their person. (snicker)
