ND Band stars in music video

One hundred and twenty members of The Band of the Fighting Irish appeared in a music video for the band OK Go - performing their hit song; This Too Shall Pass. The music video was shot last fall in an area close to the Notre Dame campus. OK Go got its start as a band in Chicago, before moving to the Los Angeles area. OK Go's music video for "Here It Goes Again" won a Grammy Award for "Best Short-Form Music Video" in 2007 -- maybe a Grammy is in the future for The Band of the Fighting Irish! Here's a link to the video.


Father Ted -- one of a kind...

Father Theodore Hesburgh - AKA; "Father Ted" - ran Our Lady's University from 1952 to 1987. The longest tenure as President in Notre Dame's history. He holds the Guinness Book of World Records record for "Most Honorary Degrees" with 150. He's been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Congressional Gold Medal and United States Military Academy's Sylvanus Thayer Award. He speaks five languages and even found time to appear in the movie Rudy. Father Ted will turn 92 years young in May. Here's a link to a video tribute of this Notre Dame icon.
