Today, at last (!) I have finally found one that I can live with.
You might have heard that there is a football game in these here parts tomorrow night. My beloved Alma Mater (she says with a hearty "Ahem") is playing the University of Michigan. This rivalry goes back a ways and is intense...just like almost every other rivalry we have with schools like USC, Miami, and anybody else that we've ever played in our storied 150+ year history.
(Wait a minute...could it be that a little Irish Pride has started to creep back into my veins?! How the heck did that happen! Somebody alert the authorities...she's starting to cave!!!)
Anywhoose....I thought y'all might get a kick out of having a little inside info in the event that you and yours decide to watch the game:
Notre Dame has officially launched the GOLD GANG. This gang is a group of student ambassadors that will roam the campus wearing full body suits (of gold) along with t-shirts that commemorate each of the 11 years that Notre Dame has won a National Championship. The idea is that these roaming gold guys will generate team spirit, hype the hype, and generally be something cool for devoted fans to look at while they're roasting their tailgate wienies.
Now here's where the inside info comes in.....you can tell everybody you know that you just happen to be close personal friends with the person that decorated the uniforms of the Gold Gang! Yes, that's right, our very own Aunt Chrissy is the person responsible for physically applying the digital transfer to the fronts and backs of all of the Gold Gang's t-shirts! How freakin' cool is THAT?!
Stewey and I will be back soon with updates on all of the shenanigans at Chez Spinster. We've managed to accomplish a LITTLE stitching, a little MORE cooking, a LOT of reading, and a TON of sleeping!
Until we meet again.....here's hoping that your very own corner of the world is indeed....GOLDEN!
