With open arms
Letter to the Editor | Thursday, September 10, 2015
Notre Dame students and alumni should welcome the visiting teams with open arms and graciousness. Without great rivalries we would be nothing. We must expect the opposing team is going to come with fans who will cheer for their team. This is what makes games at Notre Dame so tremendous.
I once asked a Kansas fan if he was having a good time at Notre Dame. His response was, “You’re the third person to ask me that today.” He then went on to say he hadn’t known what to expect at Notre Dame, but he’s telling everybody to come there for a game.
Every opposing fan should be welcomed with open arms for without them the game means nothing. It’s by welcoming the opposing fans here that we find a welcome when we travel with the Irish teams.
