Do you have 35 minutes to spare? Well, even if you don’t hit play on the video below and I have a feeling you’ll find the time:
Best. Roundup. Intro. Ever.
Kudos to the guy behind this, seriously.
A quick update on Blake: Celeste has let me know that, thanks to your generosity, things are starting to come together. They now have two tickets and lodging to go along with their donated flights from American Airlines. What was once a dream is quickly becoming a reality in just a couple of weeks. This is beyond awesome.
Yes, Notre Dame always seems to have a “Rudy” story every season. But that doesn’t make this edition any less awesome.
Another day, another award. Brian Kelly has won yet another coach of the year award.
The Big Ten has an award for Athlete of the Year. It’s namesake, a former Olympian, has now been outed as a professional escort. Yeah, that isn’t a typo.
Yes, LSU suspended their punter. However, I’m linking this story because it includes the best picture of any punter ever. Seriously, can we re-make the Ray Guy trophy with that pose?
I feel like my worlds are colliding. My favorite pro wrestler has his kid playing major college football now. What? Don’t judge.

Since Christmas is nearly upon us, perhaps it is appropriate to try and mix some religion into the recommended brew.
I was fortunate enough to have a local liquor store decide to do an inventory clearance and was able to have some Chimay Blue Cap (or Grand Reserve) on the cheap. The beer was actually first brewed as a Christmas seasonal and is brewed within the walls of a Trappist monastery, one that bares the name “Notre Dame” no less. And at 9% ABV, it serves as a perfect personal heater for these chilly winter days.
Merry Christmas, y’all.
