The Notre Dame Way Part 1

I was recently fortunate enough to spend a long Labor Day weekend with my aunt and uncle in Indiana, and attend my very first college football game. A biggie, like tremendous even…. First game of the season in South Bend with the Fighting Irish! My uncle’s an alum- class of ’64, and got the tickets via the university’s lottery system. I had the choice of going to the game, or attending ReggaeFest 2011 on the beach the same day. Kind of a no brainer, even for someone like me who’s not a huge football fan. Let’s Go Irish!
People travel to the game in style

We took a regular vehicle though, lol. My aunt and uncle have a system when they go to a game. They park in downtown South Bend across from their favorite Irish pub, the Fiddler’s Hearth, www.fiddlershearth.com</

And then, up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light 😉 – it was the Dome. I knew this was gonna be fun!
