Football Dreams

I would love to be able to attend every Notre Dame home football game as a season-ticket holder, but alas! I am not. So when my husband came home with tickets to Saturday’s game, I was excited to attend.

Even though I had been sick all week, I didn’t want to miss the chance to be in the crowd. We waited until 2:30 to decide to get into the car. It had rained all morning, and the threat was still imminent. But at 2:35, we packed up the car, made sure tickets were in hand, and drove to Edison Road. My daughter is on vacation this week, so we had a free parking spot! Nice!

We walked to campus and found our seats. A cool breeze swept through the stadium. Clouds rolled by, some dark and some white and fluffy. Would it rain? Yes. In the first half, it sprinkled for a few minutes at a time. Then the blue sky appeared and Notre Dame scored.

Notre Dame won the game! It was nice to get out of the house on a Saturday and be a part of the action, instead of watching on TV. I hope to get more tickets this year. Football season is a blast!
