Like politics or religion, college football fandom is passed down from generation to generation. And no one has done it better than Notre Dame. It seems fans of the Fighting Irish come out of the womb with blue and gold, and stay that way for life.
Even though the team hasn't been successful as of late, Notre Dame Stadium is packed under the watchful eyes of Touchdown Jesus, with a battalion of loyal followers who know nothing more than to scream their heads off. Here is Joshua Vowles of One Foot Down on why he is a Fighting Irish fan:
Through all this time, I became a fanatic. Why? Because of my father. Throughout my life, my father and I can go great lengths of time without speaking. Sometimes the conversations are merely a few sentences, and sometimes they just play the role of catching up. There are those other times though, when the Fighting Irish football team is the topic, and that is something that is never lost or forgotten. There is the simple truth. I am a fan of Notre Dame because my father is a fan. When I asked my own children just the other day why they loved the Irish, they said, 'Because of you, daddy.' How funny and completely unsurprising it all is — and how wonderful.
If you haven't made a trip to the Capital of Texas for a Longhorns football game, drop everything you are doing and go. You may not like the team, but their fans will show you the best time you'll ever have.
The game day experience in Austin is one of the best in the country. It starts and ends with central Texas barbeque, and all the brisket you can handle. After you've had your fill, you can roll over to Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium where some of the rowdiest fans will keep you on your feet for the entirety of the game.
