Missed This Last Night - Classy Move by Domer


Josh Berlo, a Notre Dame MBA alum and former member of Jack Swarbrick's Irish Athletics staff -- and now Athletic Director at the University of Minnesota-Duluth -- tweeted this before last night's national championship game...

Congrats Josh -- we hope the ring is back on your finger today!

He May Have Just Topped This Life Moment...


Masters Champion Patrick Reed is a big-time Notre Dame fan.  This was his tweet from last September with his wife Justine...

The first Augusta National member to greet Patrick after his win -- Notre Dame alum and Trustee, Jimmy Dunne.  Jimmy and Patrick have played three AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am's together...

I was told before he teed off today -- from a very reliable source -- that Patrick used "blue and gold" tees today to win the Masters.

We're hoping to have Patrick as a guest on our upcoming Notre Dame Day broadcast.

Very Cool Projection Design at Frozen Four!

PGA Tour star Patrick Reed -- here with his wife Justine in their Fighting Irish gear -- is leading THE MASTERS, going into today's final round.

Rumor has it -- HE IS USING BLUE & GOLD TEES TODAY!!!

This is a photo Patrick "tweeted" on December 30, 2014 -- with the words GO IRISH!
