2011 Under the Lights
Oh, What a Night.
You've seen the stories on MSN and Yahoo about those small tribes somewhere in the secluded jungles of South America that continue to exist in blissful unawareness of the outside world. They have never seen a telephone. They might fear a flashlight. They do not know what jeans are.
These might very well be the only people on earth who do not know who Denard Robinson is, and even then they probably heard someone's stories at the watering hole about Michigan's amazing fourth quarter comeback against the Irish on Saturday night.
You stayed up to watch the entire game. If you were among the 114,804 luckiest people on the planet, you were actually there. And you will never, ever forget what you experienced on September 10, 2011. And, of course, now you need a shirt.
The pride you are still feeling today can now be worn with this exclusive UGP MGoShirt design. For a limited time the "OH WHAT A NIGHT" shirt can be yours, available in S-3XL for this week only. This is indeed a short run and will not be featured in the regular MGoStore or at Moe's. Just like Brian Kelly's patience and Notre Dame's BCS hopes, this opportunity will be gone before you know it!!
I was arguing with a ND friend about which game was better. Obviously, I'm arguing that UTL was better. My ND friend thinks that USC-ND '05 was better. Am I still caught up in the moment or is the ND fan just bitter? What do you guys think? Anything I should be pointing out to him to prove the point?
Yahoo! has a great gallery of photos from the game, and from the season. The first 83 are from the ND game and the last 40 are from Western Michigan. Personally, my favorite picture is Picture #44, with Taylor Lewan lifting up Denard. If you want to see Brian Kelly looking like he want's to kill someone, check out Picture #5.
Now this isn't schadenfreude in the sense that this is a message board post I found. But for those of you who weren't at the game, you probably didn't hear this on tv. But late in the 3rd quarter, the section of Notre Dame fans that we stuck up at the top of the Big House in one of the endzones started a chant where they said "It sucks...to be...a Michigan Wolverine." Pretty funny considering it was 24-7 at they time. Spoke too soon. Woops. Anyways, does anyone else have any non-Internet related schadenfreude stories they would like to share?
