Ho Ho Ho | by Jay

Today's the anniversary of the only football game Notre Dame has ever played on Christmas Eve. Strange, but true. Nineteen years ago tonight, the Irish squared off against Southern Cal in a rare, late December matchup. Details are sketchy on what exactly transpired in the game, but we do know that ND jumped out to a 7-0 lead with 27 seconds left in the first period, on a play that was good for 52 yards. (A security officer at Nakatomi Plaza who looked like Huey Lewis was heard to have remarked, "Aw, shit! I got fifty bucks bet on them assholes!")

From all of us at BGS, Happy Holidays, and yippee-ki-yay.
