Good Fridays w/Padre: A Tale of Two Teams

HLS EFS CSC Guillotine

It was the best of seasons, it was the worst of seasons; it was a game of touchdowns, it was a game of turnovers; it was the inspiration for belief, it was the cause of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the autumn of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had a playoff berth before us, we had a second-tier bowl before us; we were in Heaven on earth, we were in a cold, wet Stadium of defeat. Since 1887, we’ve had worse seasons, but few as … [Read more...]

However, though I am called Father, I have never had children of … [Read more...]

No other sport encourages to keep your own score and expects you not to jinx the perfect game going on in front of you. It's one in which fans collect cards and obsess over trivia like no other.

Pinstripe Bowl Logo

Well, that's it. No more football until April. As the sun dropped behind the skyscrapers and the shadows engulfed the canyons of Yankee Stadium, as Jay-Z cruised by State Street and theatre-goers spilled from their matinees, The Figthing Irish closed the books on the 2013 season by defeating the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights 29-16. It was a good win for Notre Dame, but one that featured many of the problems that denied the Irish a ten win season. Perhaps as a tonic to some of those … [Read more...]
