Born and raised in the glow of the dome in South Bend, IN. I have been an avid ND fan my entire life. I am often optimistic regarding the Irish, yet I don't drink the "kool-aid" often consumed by other Irish fans.
Hi Again Ed,
I don't know how to do the "private message" thingie, so I will post this where I know you can read it. Thanks again for your kind offer and wishes. I too wish I was there, it would have made for a hell of an article too. I would love to work on a article with you, that sounds like a great idea!
I will also pass along your best wishes to my brother, he appears to be doing better although they has to extend the treatments. Don;t forget about next year, I hope your possibly coming out here works out better than my coming out there did for me this year.
Again Ed, your kind offer means a lot to me and I thank you for it immensely. Take care my friend and we will stay in touch!
How are you my friend? Damn, I meant to get back to you earlier. It doesn't look like I am going to be able to make it this year. I am finishing my credential program full time at school and I am teaching at two different places (which I wasn't anticipating). In addition, my brother is going through cancer treatment and if he needs me, I have to be available. I apologize for not getting back to you.
Ed, I just want to reiterate my sincere appreciation for your offer and abundant hospitality. You and your Notre Dame community are great people and I never miss an opportunity to let people know. In fact, I wrote an article today extolling the virtues of Notre Dame fans (and other subjects too). I have included a link, if you get a chance, let me know what you think.
Don't forget that next year my offer stands for you and yours if you can get out to sunny southern California! In the meantime, I'll count the days with you bro!
Ed how'd you like watching Tate torch those 5 stars of Notre Dame. Got to say the game lived up to the hype and so did Tate. Any chance you think he's the real deal now?
The Michigan/Notre Dame game has the feel once again of a typical rivalry game. Both teams look good last week, but see what the Irish NEED to do in order to be successful for a second Saturday in a row. Don't be shy, even you Wolverines!
The great debate continues, and I share my opinion on it in my latest piece. I'd also like to hear your opinion,so don't be shy!
