Found these Adidas shoes online and thought I'd start this ND GO IRISH BLOG Poll Question: How would you feel if the Fighting Irish were to wear a "Notre Dame" edition (BLUE, GOLD AND WHITE) of these shoes -- for the Sun Bowl game? See the POLL on the upper right portion of the blog's home page.
The University of Notre Dame's Band of the Fighting Irish, was awarded the Sudler Trophy this past week -- the "Heisman Trophy" of awards for marching bands in America -- by the John Phillip Sousa Foundation.
