Following weeks of bizarre "spring" weather in which the annual Holy Half-Marathon on campus was cancelled due to heavy snow (yes, in April), the sunshine arrived just in time to welcome the crowds of Notre Dame faithful who came to watch the annual glorified scrimmage Blue-Gold Game.

Since we finally have some fresh football photos, this week you shall all have the opportunity to slap some captions or photoshops onto this photo of Malik Zaire reaching back for an errant snap while Josh Adams frowns at him with some concern. And before you ask...yes, Malik is majoring in Film, Television, and Theatre. So go crazy with your scathing condemnations of "THE BLUE-GOLD GAME IS NO PLACE FOR DANCING" or "FOOTBAW IS SRS BUSINESS U GAIS," I won't stop you.

You sonofagun. Enjoy your Internet trophy.
