But today is the day when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will leave their mark on college football history. Tonight, the undefeated Irish will take on the Alabama Crimson Tide (Seriously? I mean their name is Crimson Tide but their mascot is an elephant. What? Irrelephant indeed.) in the BCS National Championship Game in Miami. Sadly, I do not have a ticket to this game and thus I am not in sunny Miami. I blog today from my humble abode, but it's okay because I will be glued to the TV all night anyway.
Though Alabama is favored by a steep 9½ points, I feel pretty good about Notre Dame's chances. They've been underdogs all season. Who's to say they can't beat the odds again?

Well, I'm off to mentally prepare for the game. I'll leave you with these parting words:
"And don’t forget, men, today is the day we’re gonna win. They can’t lick us, and that’s how it goes." - Knute Rockne
GO IRISH! BEAT BAMA!
