Apologies for BC fans’ poor behavior

Letter to the Editor | Monday, October 15, 2007

Dear Notre Dame Marching Band,

As a Boston College student and so-called “Superfan,” I would like to take this opportunity to apologize on behalf of Superfans everywhere to you, the band members, who were rudely showered with trash and food while playing in the stands during the second half of Saturday’s game. I was sitting adjacent to the student section and was absolutely appalled by the classless actions of my fellow students. Again, I apologize to all the marching band members, fans, and everyone in attendance who was witness to this poor behavior.

Notre Dame football fans, for the majority of the time I was on your campus, you were welcoming and acted respectfully to me and my Boston College brethren, and your passion for the game is unflinching. I hope that as my Eagles continue to enjoy success, that we will conduct ourselves more like champions in the future.

Thank you for having us at your fine institution and I hope for a great game next year at The Heights.

Chad Johnson
