I was able to go to the ND v Army game at Yankee Stadium on Friday night and had a wonderful time. As I have made known, I am not a Yankees fan at all, but it was pretty damn sweet to see a game there (I actually liked the new stadium much more than the old one, which I had visited once). There is a rich history to the ND/Army rivalry taking place at Yankee Stadium that dates back to the 30s and 40s, with Heisman winners and National championships. They made a point of mentioning how George wanted these types of games played there and it was a shame he was not still around.
It was a "home" game for the Irish, so the full band was there along with the pa announcer. After Army's first drive I was worried the game would be like the Navy one, which I also attended, but the team made adjustments and pretty much dominated. The first time since the 1988 championship year that ND has held teams to no touchdowns two games in a row. And freshman qb Rees looks more than capable. Kind of exciting after such an up and down first year for Kelly. Mostly down, lol.
On top of that, the ND women's soccer team beat North Carolina, the 1st seed, in the NCAA tournament. Nice revenge to get to the semis.
ND hockey swept Michigan State.
Liverpool won 3-nil. Chelsea and Arsenal lost (which, unfortunately, was helpful to Man U as well.)
And the Stillers. Trashing the Raiders 35 to 3. Strong way to rebound from the disappointing loss to the Patriots the week earlier.
Only low point was the ND men's soccer team losing to Dartmouth in sudden death OT on Sunday.
