One of my Christmas gifts from Sean was my very own mini gold helmet to commemorate this season. I have loved watching Notre Dame football since I was a teenager, having a late breakfast of bacon and eggs on my dad's weekends. It's on the top of my bucket list to get to South Bend for a game one day. I usually have tears in my eyes as coverage of the season begins...and by late September I am entranced as they show the changing leaves on campus. This season, as the number of wins grew each week, I was lovingly accused of being a terrible football watcher...yelling with worry. I didn't want to see their incredible undefeated run come to an end.
Tonight there will be no stressing. As a never-ending fan of an underdog success story I am just so excited to see the game, regardless of the outcome.
But hopefully my new little helmet is a good luck charm.
