There’s a certain disappointment each spring for fans of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and it has nothing to do with what is happening on the field. On the Friday before the annual Blue-Gold game, fans await the unveiling of Notre Dame’s “The Shirt” for the upcoming season, and most years... they’re pretty bad.
Never mind the fact that they change the color each year because they don’t believe people would ever buy a piece of clothing that may be the same color as one in their wardrobe - it’s generally just ugly.
Committees are great, and they are the backbone of a democratic country, but they are one of the worst tools to use when designing a shirt (or designing anything, really). This years, “The Shirt” is just another example of this travesty to fashion. It has a huge design on both the front and the back - as well as a logo on each arm!
What the hell is this - Wal-Mart? Does each fan need to be a walking billboard, visable from any angle imaginable? No, but they do it anyway. The saving grace is that this year’s shirt is green. BRAVO... the simplest choice is the best choice (and of course won’t be the choice in 2019).

Simple. Clean. Appropriate.
If you don’t know what “Damsha Bua” means, it’s Gaelic for “victory dance.” (Actually spelled “Damhsa Bua” but we went with how we shout it - because it really doesn’t matter). It’s the first song you here when Notre Dame scores a touchdown - it’s pure magic. It’s also what I shout
annoyingly lovingly on Twitter after each score with a somewhat informative note.
