Father's Day Story: Two Sons of Notre Dame

You'll want to read this story about former Notre Dame football stars; T.J. Jones (now with the Detroit Lions and his dad Andre Jones...


Happy Father's Day to My Dad & All the Dads!

I share this poem today with MY DAD -- that's one of his baseball cards from his playing days with the Detroit Tigers -- thank you for giving me my name.

I hope I've carried it well -- in your honor.


You got it from your father
It was all he had to give
So it's yours to use and cherish
For as long as you may live

If you lost the watch he gave you
It can always be replaced;
But a black mark on your name
Can never be erased

It was clean the day you took it
And a worthy name to bear
When he got it from his father
There was no dishonor there

So make sure you guard it wisely
After all is said and done
You'll be glad the name is spotless
When you give it to your son 

I framed this poem along with my other all-time favorite poem; 'The Man in the Glass' -- and placed it on the bedroom walls of my sons Jimmy and Brady as they were growing up (I am blessed to now have three sons -- with Conor Walsh marrying our daughter Kara).


Happy Father's Day -- Holy Cross Congregation

The University of Notre Dame has been blessed for nearly 175 years to have the "fathers" of the Holy Cross Congregation leading the way. 

Happy Fathers Day!

She's BACK!!! Skylar Scores 27 Last Night!

Former Notre Dame "All-Everything" -- Skylar Diggins scored 27 points last night leading her Dallas Wings to a TRIPLE OT WIN over the Phoenix Mercury 117 - 111.

Skylar is coming off of major knee surgery -- in only her fifth game back for the Wings.

FYI:  It's the most points ever scored by a Wings player in a single game.  (Now, the team has only played in Dallas for 12 games...)  Still, it's a FUN FACT!
