I realize that there are a lot of Notre Dame fans out there. There are also a lot of us who are not Notre Dame fans. We have a message for our friends, the Domers: "We Don't Care."
So, the Fighting Irish have lost three games straight. Big whoop. People who cheer for other teams are quite used to this. It happens all the time. Ask any Cub fan!
We also don't want to hear endless stories about your glory years at Notre Dame. We don't want to know what you think about the new coach, quarterback, point guard, or cheerleader. We don't want to go on your Notre Dame alumni golf outing. Some of us don't even like golf although I understand that this is a required activity for Domers.
I'll let you in on a little secret. Sometimes, when a Notre Dame team loses, some of us actually like it! We actually cheer for the other team! As much as it hurt us to hope for a Michigan victory, we did it.
Hey, we can still be friends. We like you guys most of the time. It just gets a little tiring hearing about that damn school. So, next time we're out for beers, let's just talk about the Cubs, OK? Misery loves company.
Q: How many Domers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: 25. One to screw it in and 24 to reminisce about it.
Sorry. I couldn't help it.
Let's get some runs!
