This was the crowning moment of a historic two days for the University of Notre Dame - "that little school in the middle of nowhere..." There's not another school in America -- that could have staged two days like this -- in the media capital of the world.
Then I hear this, from the 'so called' voice of Notre Dame football on NBC (Tom Hammond) -- after recalling Rockne's famous "WIN ONE FOR THE GIPPER" speech that took place in the old Yankee Stadium at halftime in a game against Army -- Hammond drops this doozy:
"There's question as to whether this really ever happened..."
Tom Hammond, NBC's chosen voice for Notre Dame Football -- the most storied brand in college sports -- IS GOING TO CALL INTO QUESTION ONE OF THE GREAT STORIES IN AMERICAN HISTORY???!!!
And, he's going to do this -- on national television -- in prime time -- at Yankee Stadium -- on Notre Dame's chosen TV network??!!
What's with Hammond? And, what's with NBC? Is this how you treat your partner??!!
Will we see Hammond this Thursday -- during NBC's coverage of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade -- tell the world when Santa Claus arrives at the end: "There's question as to whether this guy in the red suit..."
This is blasphemy!
How dare Tom Hammond take on the legend of Knute Rockne, Notre Dame and American sports culture -- especially on last night's big stage!
It's time for Notre Dame to put the DOME DOWN -- and let NBC know that Hammond must go!
