Cheer Cheer For Old Notre Dame

Wake up those echos, it’s time for ND vs. LSU in the Sugar Bowl.

I’ve got one question before the game starts … as I am watching the pre-game, I have to wonder, am I going to look like a heartless human being rooting against LSU tonight? I mean, the game is IN New Orleans, every human-interest story is about Katrina, is it completely terrible that I am still hoping that the Irish beat the living hell out of them?

Ummm, No its not a bad thing to root against LSU. I mean new orleans has gotten nothing but good press and I k now people have had a hard time, but its football. Hey the saints kicked my giants in the skull last week so that town needs a good sports kick in the teeth, anyhow I am rooting against old notre dame, i am sick of charlie weiss and brady quinn, but you have every right to root against LSU!!!

In addition I am heading to rhode (hopefully) this weekend and wil lpass th ebug.

You’re not heartless for rooting against LSU, but maybe soulless for rooting for Notre Dame…wink wink…being a Boston College fan all my life has engendered a deep and abiding hatred for all things golden dome…to me, it’s like rooting for the Yankees. But that’s just me…

God, was it painful to watch the Sugar Bowl last night. It certainly wasn’t heartless of you, FINY, to root against LSU. They play their home games in Baton Rouge, and not New Orleans. I know my Cajun friends down there will make it all the way back from Katrina. I even hope the Saints make it to the Super Bowl. But I could never root against ND, no matter who they play against.

Ditto! You did the right thing, FiNY & feel NO GUILT about it:

Party On!
