John Sullivan to Rep Notre Dame in Super Bowl


Very happy for the Los Angeles Rams' center John Sullivan -- he'll be the sole Notre Dame alum playing in Super Bowl LIII.

Got to love the ND tattoo on his shoulder in the photo above!

44 former Notre Dame football players have won a Super Bowl ring -- here's hoping John is #45!

Go Rams!


OT: Doing the Right Thing...



Our youngest son Brady did something like this during his freshman year on the swim team at Detroit Catholic Central High School.  It was the Detroit Catholic League Championship -- and a senior on the team had swum a relay leg for Catholic Central in the prelim heat -- only to see Brady take his spot on the relay team in the Championship final.

This senior had been dealing with the failing health of his Dad -- who was dying from cancer -- all season long.

Well Brady's relay team won the 400 Free Relay in the Catholic Championship Final -- his first high school "gold medal" -- I remember when we got home I asked "where's your medal?"

He replied -- "I gave it to ____ (this was the senior, whom he swam for in the Final) -- he deserved to have this, I know he wanted to give it to his Dad. I'll have more opportunities in the future..."

A very proud moment for this Dad.

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;
