notre dame irish

10

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.

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.
