Fans show class

Letter to the Editor | Tuesday, October 9, 2007

I was at the UCLA game on Saturday, and I don’t think I was ever so proud to be a Notre Dame graduate and to have my three kids attend the University. Twenty-five thousand screaming and supportive Notre Dame fans to watch their 0-5 team play 2,000 miles from the University. Are you kidding me? I don’t think I saw a single no-show!

But what made me even more proud was when, during the second half, the entire Notre Dame section in the end zone where I was sitting stood and applauded, as three members of our military happened to walk by. Wow! That was truly amazing.
