fighting irish of notre dame


A plane flew high, a pig was fried, and posters were everywhere
As College Gameday visited the U to see its campus flair. 
The weather was fair, but fans were not 
For they came to see a show. 
A rivalry refreshed 
Amid last season’s woes. 

Many a star will be in sight 
To see a glorious game. 
Many a chain will shine bright 
As new Canes stake claim to fame. 

Rosaries will be clutched 
By the fans in gold and blue 
To see the storied Notre Dame face off against the U. 

Seminole Lee Corso donned his beads and his hat
Hoping that Irish luck will prove his pick as fact. 
But Miami Canes have other plans 
This is not as it has been before 
They may be the underdog, but believe they can win one more. 

So tune in to ABC
At 8 o’clock on the dot
To see the Irish fight the Canes
And thicken this great plot.

Top Ten Games of the Week

10. #19 Washington State 8-2 (5-2) at Utah 5-4 (2-4)

Washington State is still very much in the PAC-12 North race. The Cougars have to survive a trip to Salt Lake City, a dangerous proposition, to keep up with rival Washington.

The Story of Joey Schmidt.

 Joey was told he was too slow, too small, not athletic enough to even play for Notre Dame. So the handsome blond put in some hard work that led him a nobody walk on to the starting MLB and captain of the team. Compared to the massive 6′8 300lb OLinemen Joey has to take on in every game his 5′11 230 does seem small. Still through intelligence, hard work and determination this sexy version of Notre Dame’s “Rudy” went form walk on to the team’s defensive MVP. Not bad for a cute little hunk from SoCal. To bad a few “bad apple” Irish fans take out their frustrations on Joey. Calling him, “umpa lumpa” “hobbit”. They think Joey is just not athletic enough to handle the huge monsters that play college ball. To them he is just the pretty white boy who can’t paly but gets all the girls on campus.Like or loathe him the guy earned everything that he has achieved. And like it or not Joey Schmidt is one studly work of manly hottness. Yes, maybe Joey is no Shawn Oakman (the monster in the last photo). Oakman stands 6′9 340lbs and Joey 5′11 230lbs. I for one would love to see Joey Schmidt vs Shawn Oakman. I believe Joey would truck Oakman and take him down, That is before the massive Oakman beats the “Schmidt” out of Joey.

Lets here some feedback.

So how do you think would win in a Joe Schmidt vs Shawn Oakman matchup?

What do think about Joey?

#40 Cal Petersen (Notre Dame Fighting Irish/Waterloo, Iowa)

I sort of want to sic the ghosts of Deborah Sampson, Alexander Hamilton, John Laurens, Baron von Steuben, Albert Cashier, and every other (“possibly”) LGBT soldier who fought for this nation on Donald Trump’s transphobic ass.

Especially Albert Cashier. I have an insatiable desire to see the ghost of a feisty Irish trans man who was basically the embodiment of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish guy (in the best way possible) fuck Trump’s shit up.

Top Games of the Week: Week 8

We finally have games featuring ranked teams again. So that’s nice. There aren’t a top, but it’s more than we’ve had the past two weeks.

Top Ten Games of the Week

10. Colorado 4-3 (1-3) at #15 Washington State 6-1 (3-1)

Series Ledger: 6-4 Colorado
Last Meeting: 38-24 Colorado 11/19/2016

These bottom games aren’t particularly important or interesting, but I have to fill out my top ten! You’ll probably be more interested in these games if you follow specific conference or division races. Washington State, for instance, needs to bounce back after their completely gutless performance against Cal. They still control their own destiny, they just have to act like it.
