Here's another historic photo -- and it's of senior running back, Robert Hughes of the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame -- scoring the first touchdown in the history of the new Yankee Stadium. For the record, it was a one-yard run over the left guard and tackle. Photo courtesy of @fightingirishff

This is the photo of the day! That's Tim O'Connor a Notre Dame alum, who's a team member at AgencyND and his Dad -- sharing a moment of a lifetime -- Notre Dame at Yankee Stadium! Tim and his wife Liz have been gracious enough to "tweet" a number of photos from today that we've shared here at the ND GO IRISH BLOG...

Many thanks to all of the Notre Dame students, alums, faculty, staff and fans who "tweeted" pics and video during The Band of the Fighting Irish's performance today in Times Square. A special thanks goes to Kate Gales (@kategales) who tweeted the first photo and Tim O'Connor (@oaknd1) for the next three photos that he "tweeted" from Times Square. And, here's a link to a video that was "tweeted" by Liz O'Connor (@lizsmc1) -- the "better half" of the O'Connor clan -- of the Notre Dame Victory March being played in Times Square! -- Pretty special!

Folks, I went online this morning at the UND.COM store to see if you could still buy a copy of today's Notre Dame vs. Army @ Yankee Stadium Game Program and it says it's SOLD OUT! That's too bad, I thought the design was so cool -- that I had to show it to you anyway. The cover price: $15 -- it's NYC! Here's the link to the UND.COM store site that sells the game day programs for every Notre Dame home game -- you may want to check it again next week to see if they have any extra copies to sell!

The game was also played at Yankee Stadium -- and it matched the #1 ranked Black Knights of Army vs. the #2 ranked Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. I won't spoil the outcome -- just click on the link below to video highlights of what many still call "THE GAME OF THE CENTURY."

University of Notre Dame Professor, Dr. John Renaud -- is "fighting for those who serve" by providing safer vehicles for our military. Here's another of the "award winning" promotional videos created by the University of Notre Dame's Public Affairs & Communications department (see link below). It features Notre Dame alum -- Captain John Dickson, U.S. Army Third Infantry Division. Who do you think John will be rooting for tonight?! Quite appropriate -- on a day when our Irish take the field with Army at Yankee Stadium.

7:00 AM: Tune in to NBC's Today Show -- I'm just guessing that the Today Show will spend a pretty good period of time this morning promoting their PRIMETIME telecast tonight between the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame and the Black Knights of Army at Yankee Stadium. And, I suspect Notre Dame fans will "take over" the plaza outside the Today Show's studio in Rockfeller Center -- so look for the Irish when they do their "remotes" from the plaza. The Today Show runs until 10:00 AM.
10:30 AM: Notre Dame Mass @ St. Patrick's Cathedral. University of Notre Dame President, Rev. John Jenkins -- will preside over Mass at this Catholic landmark in Midtown Manhattan.
12:00 PM: The Band of the Fighting Irish's traditional "Concert on the Steps" @ Times Square! The greatest college marching band in the land will set up on the "steps" in Duffy Square in the middle of New York City's Times Square. This should be a "must see" for all Notre Dame fans in NYC today!
1:30 PM: Game Day in NYC Tailgate Party @ Sheraton Hotel & Towers. This event is already sold-out. It runs until 6 PM.
4:00 PM: UND.COM's exclusive pre-game coverage begins -- LIVE from Yankee Stadium. Just click on this link and get ready for the big game!
Please note: It's been rumored that The Band of the Fighting Irish (all 390 of them) will be taking the Subway from Grand Central Station up to Yankee Stadium. And, it's also been rumored that the subway cars they'll be riding in -- have been "wrapped" in a design celebrating Notre Dame's famed "Subway Alumni." Now, I haven't been able to confirm this -- but, those of you in NYC for the game, you may want to ask around to see what the Band's plans are for getting to Yankee Stadium.
5:00 PM: Notre Dame "Young Alumni" Event @ Billy's Sports Bar next to Yankee Stadium. This should be a "hopping place" before game time!
7:00 PM: NBC's Prime Time telecast of the Notre Dame vs. Army game begins. The pre-game ceremonies are expected to be quite special -- with former Heisman Trophy Winners from Notre Dame and Army on the field for the coin toss to be joined by a member of the late George Steinbrenner's family. And, the Army's "Black Knights Parachute Team" is expected to make a "grand entrance" into Yankee Stadium. See the link below to one of NBC's best ever "tune in" promotional spots for today's game. THIS WILL GET YOU FIRED UP FOR TONIGHT!

7:30 PM: Kick-off of the first football game ever in the new Yankee Stadium -- between the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame and the Black Knights of Army. It's the 50th meeting between these two teams with Notre Dame holding a 38-7-4 edge in the series.
10:00 PM: UND.COM will be broadcasting a LIVE post-game show from Yankee Stadium as will the gang at NBC's Notre Dame Central. See Brian Kelly's press conference and Notre Dame player interviews. Here are the links to these two sites:
