The "Stories" Behind the "Fighting Irish" of ND



I find it rather ironic that the storyteller in this video is none other than a Brit by the nae of Simon Whistler who lives in the Czech Republic...   Why would he think to tell this story?

ND Practicing on Real Turf to get Ready for MSU


Domer Jarron Jones Now a Dallas Cowboy!


Former Notre Dame defensive tackle Jarron Jones -- turned NFL offensive tackle -- is now earning a pay-check from his THIRD NFL TEAM!

It was announced today that Jarron was signed by the Cowboys to their practice squad.

Jarron sure has picked up some frequent flyer miles in the process.  He started out playing for the New York Giants, he was released by the Giants at the end of Training Camps and was picked up by the Seattle Seahawks -- the Seahawks released him a week later and now Jarron is with the Cowboys...
