Notre Dame just beat BYU. How do I know? My Sports Center app alarm just went off. I could have gotten up at 3:30am, taken a $100 cab ride to Tokyo, and watched them on the Armed Forces Network in a military facility with the Notre Dame Club of Japan but I didn’t.
It’s a fall Sunday and that means one thing to me – football. I grew up watch the Giants and listening to my father tell Phil Simms to move his feet. Then my sister went to Notre Dame, I went to Notre Dame for grad school and both my sister and I married Eagles fans. And living in Denver, now my husband and I added Broncos fans to the list. I like watching football.
The time difference is painful. Last Monday, my Sports Center app dinged the whole time Peyton Manning recovered from a spanking to pull off a Broncos win on Sunday night football. My husband was texting me on Skype in amazement of the turn of events. It’s just not the same.
So I guess Notre Dame should thank me for being in Japan because I know they are 7-0 because I can’t see them.
