I was taught long ago that everything is right in the world when Notre Dame loses…plus I went to a grade school for 8 years which was also called Notre Dame, so it was beaten into me, as well. But that’s a
deposition yet to come horse of a different color.
Suffice to say I mustered what ‘enthusiasm’ I still have left in life to shriek a half-hearted “huzzah!” when I double-witnessed this magic with my own half opened eyes.
“Down with evil!” I shouted.
But then all of a sudden, yon internet was all a-Twitter with cries of conspiracy this and swindled that.
And swiftly to my mind did emerge, even when the damning evidence was clear, a familiar phrase which I often invoke…Shit, it’s only Notre Dame, fuck ‘em if they can’t take a joke.
Notice down on ESPN’s score line, the red 00, and the center still has the football.
