One Last SC week thought before it all goes down

this is not a poem....these are just my thoughts.

It is a Football Friday

the night before we play the Trojans.

There is a Trojan horse sitting out on Irish green right now

while there is a pep rally going on.

And everything in me is telling me that the Irish nation is going to pull out the upset

like they haven't done for decades,

and that the world must be in chaos

because i am here

and not where tens of thousands of bleeding Irish faithful



in light of my inability to change my own circumstances

and the fact that a victory tomorrow will be glorious no matter what continent i am on

and knowing that there will be thousands of other Irish faithful trying to catch the game online,

all around the world

let me just say,

that i am thrilled to be living in the computer age

the age of television

and the age of Notre-Dame-is-a-global-brand

because everyone in the world

(if they know us at all)

can tell how special we are.

And whatever happens,

we are the Irish nation--

a country unto ourselves

that no one can match

or touch

or clobber with a jeweled shillelagh.

Go. Irish.

BEAT TROJANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
