While the rest of the country looks forward to Thanksgiving I am looking forward to Saturday evening, when the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame bring their act on the road to LA to face the USC Trojans. (A Hollywood ending to their regular season?) The Irish enter the game 11-0, a victory no doubt assuring them a spot in the College Football Playoff. This game follows the team’s one-sided victory Saturday against Syracuse, who came in to the game ranked in the top 15 for the first time since I believe 1987. (Well, not really that long.) The game was played at Yankee Stadium, and it’s been a while since I saw a team play that well in pinstripes. Actually, the Irish didn’t even play great, which makes their (potentially) three final contests that much more interesting. This team playing its best can compete with anyone.
But first they’ve got to make it in Hollywood.
