I never understood why

I never understood why people are fixated on notre dame. They suck and always have. I even hated the movie Rudy! Is it an irish thing? I'm Irish and i still hate them. How did a french named school become affiliated with the Irish? Penn State is a true football team and Paterno is a true football coach and legend.

Most people in Ftown love

Most people in Ftown love the irish because of the name and the team used to be associated with whites ( just stating a fact b4 the morality police jump on me ) Im a HUGE PSU fan and ill be going twice next yr i hope .... But Fishtown has been a largly ND base since i was a kid . Come on how can you hate that lovely movie ??? lol

You're right ftown, the team

You're right ftown, the team isn't that good and hasn't been for awhile, but they're a Catholic school with the name Fighting Irish. As an Irish Catholic, who feels very strongly about being both, how can I resist? They feel like my home team.

More importantly, when my good friend took me to a game about 7 years ago, he insisted that I stop at the Grotto and say a prayer. So, I prayed for the one missing piece of my life; a woman to marry and a family to raise. Two weeks later, I met Kat, and my eyes twinkled, and my heart fluttered, and my knees shook.

We've been married a little over five years and I'm still crazy about her.

I'm sure if you prayed to joe paterno you would have gotten the same thing along with a winning football team.

Because I like Nunzio so

Because I like Nunzio so much I won't relate how much I enjoyed being in the old Orange Bowl years ago and seeing the University of Miami stomp all over Notre Dame 58-3. :)

(hey, the Hurricanes are the ones wearing the Irish flag colors, btw)

I guess they had to come up

I guess they had to come up with a good nick name for Notre Dame since the Surrendering Frenchies doesn't sound as fierce as the Fightin Irish.
