As the whistle blew dead the last gasp effort of DeShone Kizer and the Notre Dame Irish, my wife must have seen the blood drain out of my face. She put her face in between mine and the television and said, “I’m sorry about your team. But your boys still love you. And I still love you.” And I knew she was giving me a sense of perspective, but I still needed time to be bummed.
It’s a week later. I’m less depressed today than I was that night, but I’m also relieved I don’t have to sit through another agonizing Irish game. I was finally spiritually ready to revisit that night a week ago and curate the most insightful, cutest and funniest tweets from that night. Here it is, dear readers: The #HLSRecap for the 2016 Notre Dame-Stanford game.
The struggling Irish blow a 10-0 lead and drop their fifth game of the year, 17-10, against a Stanford team without Heisman hopeful Christian McCaffrey.
