Molly Moran and I return for another episode of HLS TV to cycle through some of the Notre Dame football stages of grief. Yes, we talk about that play and Jimbo’s strange postgame comments, but we do attempt to move on and talk about the game as a whole and what Notre Dame’s playoff chances look like going forward.
Today’s intro and outro is something you may have seen me post on Twitter after a terrible ND loss. A high school friend of mine, Michael Gruber, manned the audio board for the biggest sports radio station in the DFW area (KTCK The Ticket 1310AM/96.7FM). He now runs the music for the Dallas Stars, but one of his lasting Ticket legacies was the mix of Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt” with many different audio clips. This was played after any area team suffered a loss that eliminated them from postseason play or failure to even make the postseason.
It’s a perfect mix of pain and humor and has become a required step of healing from sports heartbreak and so I’m happy to share this with you. The song can be downloaded here if you wish to have a copy for yourself.
The latest episode of HLS TV is embedded below in the usual YouTube and Podbean formats. Let’s heal together.
