As a kid, I grew up watching them on TV. There was always something for me about those gold Notre Dame helmets. So, when Marchin said he had a connection for tickets, I said I was on board. We landed in the Hoosier State about 11 AM Friday, and I stepped on the 'green' of the campus around 3 PM. In retrospect, I don't think we could have fit anything else into those 3 days. They were jammed packed. And, oh yeah, we saw a football game too. The results (USC 31 ND 17) was the only 'downer' of the entire weekend. One of the unexpected highlights of the game came at the end. Hearing the the USC band play and the famous Song Girls dance to Tusk, that classic by Fleetwood Mac, made the cool end of the evening, warm. Red Pat, you guessed it right the first day. How did you do that? Three days spent in the shadow of the 'golden dome' (seen here) was a football, as well as a life highlight. Now, it's back to the real world.
