Mondays are the worst, aren’t they? And by “Monday” I mean “the first day back from vacation”.
Here are your @andrewwinn stats for this week’s #HLSrecap — 319 tweets from 120+ contributors, with 14 first-timers making the cut this week. We now have over 450 unique contributors to at least one #HLSrecap this year.
As you know, each week we present the following highly-coveted (and yet totally arbitrary) accolades:
- Brick Helmet Stickers
- #HLSrecap MVP
- #HLSrecap Top 25
Brick Helmet Stickers
I incorrectly believed that I had handed out my final #BrickHelmetStickers of the year. Luckily for those of you who aspire to more internet glory (and who doesn’t?), you get one more round of these highly coveted imaginary stickers for your imaginary helmets. Go team!
So the Pinstripe Bowl. Yeah. Just like we all hoped for at the beginning of the season, right? Let’s face it – we cash advanced all of our 2013 breaks last season. It was time to pay the football gods back. And we’re never happy anyway so let’s just get on with the stickers.
@PDXIrish – Nina finished strong and managed to remain in #HLSRecapNina mode without being disowned by her grandmother. Nicely done, young lady. You can put your lady boner away now. Please.
@OptimisticDomer – His tweets don’t always live up to his handle, but that handle was a reach for a real Notre Dame fan anyway. This guys gets funnier every week and I hope he plans to tweet during basketball season.
@SupermanTDJesus – Strong. Again.
@thereidy – Here you go, Mike. At long last you finally stepped up your game. Now you can go kick your cat.
@1IrishChocolate – This performance was so strong that I had to break my “you have to follow me to get a sticker” rule. Holy crap I was rolling! Lou….you slay me, man.
Now, onto the quantitative measures. This is just as it sounds — whoever has the most number of tweets that make the final cut will be awarded the #HLSrecap MVP Award.

Season #HLSrecap stats are provided below, and since everyone wants their own Internet Trophy, we’re going to be hosting the Inaugural HLS Awards Show & Live Google Hangout coming up later this month. Let us know here what date/time works best for you, and you can submit an idea for an award and/or recipient here. Translation: we don’t exactly know what we’re doing, but the range of topics/content/ridicule will be vast. We’ll post more details as the date approaches.
The #HLSrecap offseason has begun. We’ll have #HLSrecapMadness come basketball tournament time, but aside from the Blue-Gold Game and possible Stadium/uniform announcements, pray that this offseason is quieter than the last.

#HLSrecap Top 25
As a reminder, @andrewwinn awards one point for each tweet that makes it in; 1/2 point if someone else retweets/quotes/modifies your tweet and it’s included. The Twitter Ranking Of Leprechaun Legion (T.R.O.L.L.) Scale is awarded arbitrarily.
2013 trolled ND fans enough — no additional T.R.O.L.L. Points assigned this week, so the final #HLSrecap is straight up.
