Wanted: Pure Shooters Wearing Gold & Blue!



We're missing a "pure shooter" or two in our line-up -- we just don't have that...

Our Fighting Irish missed many open shots and missed too many free throws in a 77 - 73 loss today to #17 North Carolina State.

45 Years Ago Today -- This Happened at ND!


Domer Vic Lombardi is Colorado's Best!



Our good friend Vic Lombardi '91 -- was just named Colorado's Sportscaster of the Year!


Vic, has been kind enough to return "home" to Notre Dame these past two years to join our Notre Dame Day broadcast team -- and he zipped down to Dallas last month to co-host our Cotton Bowl Party.

That's Vic in action on Notre Dame Day in the video above...

He's very good at what he does (he has won 30 Emmys) -- and he's fun to work with.

Congrats Vic!

Domer John Sullivan's Super Bowl Chance...



I'll be rooting for the one-time college roommate of my son Jimmy '08 -- they were roommates on paper before Jimmy showed up for his first day in Dillon Hall and he was moved to another room, leaving Sullivan and Trevor Laws in a room alone...  

The interview above took place before the season started.

John Sullivan, in his eleventh year in the NFL, is the starting center for the Los Angeles Rams -- and one of two Notre Dame alums left in the NFL Playoffs with a chance to play in the Super Bowl.

Manti Te'o -- is on the Saints' roster -- though he was a healthy scratch for their NFL Playoff game last week...

Thus, I'm all in for Sullivan and the Rams -- here's some recent stories about John;
