Score One for the Domers

Given my undergrad degree from The University of Michigan (yes the "The" is capitalized), coupled with the unforgiveable loss a couple of weeks ago, to say that I am not a Notre Dame fan is an understatement.

But it is impossible to read this story about Coach Weis and a young cancer victim and not think that it is one of the most moving sports stories out there. What a class act.

(Nevertheless, I cannot believe that I have an ND logo on my blog.)

That's really a touching story. Thanks for sharing it.

... and I would go ahead and capitalize the "Of" while you're at it. Go Blue.

I agree with you and the earlier poster, one of the nicest stories I've read in a long long time.

Michigan has a football team???
I could've sworn ND was playing St. Mary's.

That was a great story on Coach Weis. It made the papers in Texas and with all the problems on the Third Coast recently, it was a little touch of sunshine.

Alright, when my own father starts making Michigan jokes, all lines of decency have been crossed. And while my Wolverines truly deserve no defense (considering they have none of their own), I will still not tolerate ANY pro-Notre Dame posts. This is my blog and I get to make the rules, especially when it comes to the team from South Bend. For clarification, Coach Weis - good, Notre Dame - not so much.

Michigan jokes?
You're being redundant.

Even Texas beat ND. And my two favorite teams is whoever beat Texas last and whoever Texas plays next.
