Happy Thanksgiving | by Pat

Among all of the many things to be thankful for on this day, I think we should also note that it was 119 years ago today that a handful of Notre Dame students got together with a group from a school up in Michigan and played the very first Notre Dame football game. That was the start of what has turned into something special: a football tradition that has been a source of entertainment and inspiration for many, many people.

We here at BGS want to also say thank you to all of the readers and commenters and emailers who make this blog a joy to write. At this time last year, BGS had just passed it's 1,000,000th visitor and now we are nearing in on the 3,500,000th visitor. The increase in traffic is very flattering and quite frankly, more than we ever expected. Thanks again to everyone.

Happy Thanksgiving!
