Fighting Irish

I attended the USC vs. Notre Dame football game in October.  I did not attend either of these universities nor would I call myself a fan, but this game was great.  It even brought out some celebrities.

Notre Dame football has some unique traditions because of its long history.  One tradition is that the team attends mass at the Sacred Heart Basilica prior to a home game, and fans form a line for the team to walk through after mass.  You can read more about the history and traditions of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Wikipedia.





The game was great to watch, but the campus was just as amazing.  Every building and structure was stunning.







If you're ever in northern Indiana, I recommend you visit South Bend/Notre Dame.
