Its Not Football Without The Brat

Bratwurst Pictures, Images and Photos .

We all gather here to pine our opinions and wage our schematic ideas on what to do for the next game, and its always the same. Notre Dame plays--win or lose--we all bitch about something lacking somewhere. Anywhere. On the field, in the box, out in the parking lots riding on horses, nothing is safe from the fanatics critiquing. There is always room for improvement! But the atmosphere of the game is arguably outside in the quads, standing on ladders screaming for your support.

Megaphones, barely dressed women in green paint, and short redheaded guys doing cartwheels need your salty palate for support. Support for what you might ask? Maybe for fraternity reasons, I dont really know why? But who really cares anyways? Sit down under a tree, eat your brat, listen to the band play over on the steps, and drink a cola. Whats to complain about now? Is the dog too hot, did the foil come off in the bun? .

Sometimes the simple things go unnoticed, the usher who pointed out the bookstore to you when it was pouring down rain, or the policeman who bandaged up your sons knee when he fell down playing quad football. Lets all take a chill pill and relax, eat a brat, and sip on some delicious cola. If youre missing out on college footballs greatest brat fest, then youre probably missing out on all of the other things as well. Dont leave the ladder guy hanging, hes just as important as the guys on the field.

Semper's Hook

Notre Dame Football Pictures, Images and Photos I was asking some of our staff what made them so fanatical for The Fighting Irish, and why theyd continue rooting after a piss-poor season, and heres another short story by SemperFi, a Domer Domain moderator. If you notice one thing we all share in common, is an intense belief in our team, one that wont waiver despite a poor showing. A passionate follower who understands what Notre Dame stands for. Heres a look back by Semper detailing some of his memories.

My old man was born and raised in South Bend, and I would regularly head out to the Bend to spend my summers visiting my grandparent and cousins for winter and summer breaks--so my allegiance to ND was second nature. My Grandfather taught me what Notre Dame stood for and would always take me to the stadium, the bookstore, the lake, and all the other wonderful places ND had to offer. But as a casual, youthful, Notre Dame fan that loved to sport ND gear at school (in Colorado), I would rarely catch a game unless the weather was too crappy to be on an adventure outside. I would still make it widely and commonly known that the Irish were my team, Gods team, and the best team on the face of the earth. So I might have been a little cocky and arrogant, but I wasn't hurting anyone.

The 1990 Orange Bowl win over the Colorado Buffs, left my house littered with teepee, eggs, a spray painted garage door and other miscellaneous forms of vandalism. A year later in the 1991 Orange Bowl, a Colorado team lead by Eric Bieniemy upset the best ND team I have seen with the likes of Zorich, Ismail, Mirer, Bettis, and Watters on the roster. Unfortunately my house still suffered the harsh consequence of being a fan of the widely, hated Fighting Irish even after the loss. I was fascinated with Notre Dame and why they were such a loved/hated team. My father taught me to always be faithful and loyal and because of some vandal, I became a Notre Dame super junky and the rest is history.

After reading this I realize that Charlie Weis is the right man for the job. His tireless recruiting will lead to wins, as weve already seen the flux already with guys like Floyd and Tate, Clausen and Robinson. One day well be reminiscing about these guys, and none of this would have been possible without Charlie sitting in these players living rooms. The future looks bright with Weis at the helm! Thanks for sharing Semper!
