Dear Notre Dame,
I’ll admit that I was picturing your campus to be far more Hogwarts-y and far less…college campus. I blame Disney for some reason. Regardless, it was pretty. Nice and old and well maintained.
A lot of your fans commented on how many Utah fans were there. We were surprised too. One guy even said he was tempted to go to Utah and steal everything since it seemed like every Utahn was in South Bend. I assured him there were plenty of BYU fans hanging around Utah and they wouldn’t let them steal anything without first trying to convert him to the gospel. (BYU JOKES NEVER GET OLD!)
Lots of traditions at your school, it’s impressive. I even stood in line for 45 minutes for a supposed legendary steak sandwich. It was pretty good. The money went to charity, so that knocked it up a few notches. Also? Notre Dame fans are kind of like BYU fans that drink. I’m pretty sure the entire liquor store inventory was in the tailgate lot.
Sure, there were a lot of Utah fans. But once we got inside the stadium and realized our tickets weren’t in the Utah section? There weren’t many Utah fans. At all. And Notre Dame fans have a whole strength in numbers thing. They were really nice. Until y’all started gently roasting our team. By the time you had kicked our proverbial butts…you got really cocky. It’s cool. I’d like to assume your cockiness came from regard for how awesome we are (well, were.) TCU kind of did us in last week. We may never be the same. You know who else will never be the same? Cody. He’s a sad, sad guy.
We haven’t been to a game where Utah had lost since 2003. It hurt. Not going to lie. But seeing how excited you were after winning? It was kind of cute. You rushed the field like you had just won a championship game. But really you had just won the fifth game of your season. Bringing your win/loss percentage to 50%. But yay for your celebration! YAY FOR YOU!
Thanks for accommodating us, and only making minimal jabs and jokes at our dismal loss. As a Utah transplant to Indiana? I totally get how a bunch of high mountain desert dwellers can choke when placed in dismal rainy Indiana weather. I didn’t dry out from three hours in the cold rain until this morning. And I was wearing a plastic bag the whole time.
See you next time, that is if Cody ever recovers.
