Chant needs to stay

Kevin Eller | Tuesday, September 14, 2010


This is a letter in response to Matthew Keenan’s “Make ND stadium intimidating” (Sept. 13) I agree with him wholeheartedly in that Notre Dame stadium needs to be louder. Everybody should be going nuts. Seriously. However, I disagree with him about Celtic Chant.
I believe it should stay with a couple changes. You see, Celtic Chant is a song that is about, among other things, screaming. So scream! Really loud!! The arm waving is alright on its own, but it would be very intimidating to see 8000-plus students simultaneously waving their arms and screaming their lungs out.
Also, on the vuvuzelas, that is an awesome idea. Somebody please make that happen.
