Since my previous fanpost got closed, let me pick this up again: since OFD features since a fun and smart set of contributors, and since I'll be in from France for the game for the first time in like two decades and bringing a ton of red wine, why don't we try to have a OFD tailgate? My cousin and my buddy David (ND '68), both South Bend residents, are willing to help with lawn chairs and tables, etc.
From the previous post, so far First Down Moses, Zodiak 18, Occtipus, and C_BASS expressed an interest. April 12th is only six weeks away.
Here's the info on ticket sales from the ND website (the game will not sell out, so you can make up your mind at the last minute). It would be super to meet some of y'all (yes, you, Mouth of the South, wish I could join you for Mardi Gras).
NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Tickets go on sale Tuesday, March 4 for the 85th annual University of Notre Dame Blue-Gold Spring Football Festival. The football game begins at 12:30 p.m. EDT on Saturday, April 12, 2014, at Notre Dame Stadium. It's a great opportunity to get a sneak peek at the 2014 Fighting Irish football squad.
Proceeds from the Blue-Gold Spring Football Festival help support the scholarship fund of the Notre Dame Club of St. Joseph Valley. The Blue-Gold Spring Football Festival is presented by Boling Vision Center.
