Folks, as I write this blog post we're exactly nine hours away from something quite special...
At 6:42 PM ET today (Military time of 18:42 -- the year Notre Dame was founded) -- the LIVE EVENT called Notre Dame Day will commence. It's a 29 hour -- global celebration of Notre Dame that will be broadcast live over the internet.
