i had made a comment that catholic school kids were taught that going to notre dame was their ticket to heaven and that was why so many of them go there. this was offensive and was not my intent. what i should have said was that notre dame has a lot of pull with catholic school athletes and that those schools often act as feeder schools for ND. i apologize to anyone i had offended with that comment as that was not my intent.
fuck notre dame.
turbo cool, you about to go Dana Jacobsen on his ass?
who knows but i encourage all and any type of contempt towards nd. no apologies necessary mgoobes. anyone who took it personally needs to realize that somebody whom they never met and will never meet in person just offended them on the internet. better late than never, but welcome to the 21st century.
that goes for everything then beantown. thick skin is fine, but people are fickle and often hypocritical.
ps, beantown, eh? great memory.
Anyone who may have been offended by that statement is a douchebag. Fuck'em.
Agree 100%. GO BLUE!!!
Actually, he makes a good point. I went to a Catholic HS in Ann Arbor, and the sense was pretty much Notre Dame is the best school in the country. It was a BIG deal if a kid got into ND, and it was seen at or even above the Ivys
I knew a kid who got into Brown and nobody cared. But people were impressed with Bowling Green because they had a football team that was on TV.
I shit you not.
So, I'm on my own for heaven then?
Fuck, there goes 30K a year in education.
let's all get offended. this board has gone soft.
That's what happens when your coach has the gravity of Jupiter.
If there was a major Jewish University with a big time football program, they would own all you fools because they would attract all the best Jewish athletes. And it would be called Jew U which is cool.
Turbocool is 100% right. If people get all butthurt over things said on an internet message board, they have too much time on their hands.
Lots of people seem to think that it is a virtue of society that we are so "tolerant" and never say anything bad about someone else's gender/sexual preference/race/religion/age/etc. Maybe that is true.
But I think that it is a social ill that people tend to be so thin-skinned about negative comments about the previously mentioned things. Suck it up people.
Fuck Notre Dame and their arrogant coach! Fuck their shitty little town and their ugly fucking stadium! Fuck touchdown Jesus! Fuck Joe Montana, Ara, Knute, Rocket, Lou! Fuck Rudy! Fuck their raping priests and their felonious cover ups! Fuck that they think only their God gets you to heaven! Fuck that we lost to them this year! Fuck Jimmah!
MGoObes, your heart was in the right place with your apology, but if anyone was offended, Fuck them too!!!
I HATE everything Notre Dame stands for!!!
PS - if I offended you, I'm not as apologetic, Fuck You Too! Go Blue!
I'm offended that you didn't offend me.
Truer words never spoken! Gotta love giving a big Fuck You to those D-bags in South Bend! Extend Weis' contract another 10 years and really Fuck 'em.
That was possibly the greatest post of all time.
Thank you, kind sir!
And fuck their fucking fuck-stick green fucking leprachaun, too!
Don't think it seems to have come on as strong as you fear... but these days, ESP. ON THE INTERWEBS, it's nice to see a man step up and take responsibility for his actions and/or words.
That's a Michigan Man move, right there, my friend.
The real reason so many ND players get into heaven is because they have a decided schematic advantage over desire to sin.
True Story: I used "Decided Schematic Advantage" in a presentation last week. I chuckled a little to myself when I said it, and I just got blank stares. I need to spend less time no the Internets.
Im a catholic and I am not offended a bit.
I would not worry about ND catholics getting upset either. I am sure they can take a joke. In fact they took a joke and made him their head coach.
They're up in arms over the Christmas Eve bowl game... even though it's not a Holy Day of Obligation.
Your apology is a wast of breath, or... typing.
Notre Dame's religion (or religion in general for that matter) is a fraud, just like their football coach.
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black; oh how I love the irony of Modernism. Though Weis totally is a fraud :)
I see no irony.
on your wedding day?
An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn't it ironic... don't you think?
Mr. Play it safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suuuuuuuuuitcase and kissed his kids goodbye-e-i
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And when the plane crashed down he thought, "Well isn't this nice."
that like notre dame are blogging on a u of m blog?
i think their hate for ND outwieghs their love for catholocism
We all know that killing infidels is what gets you into heaven
Nice quick change, I was about to be pissed.
