The Sweet-and-Low Bowl


Well, that was a bitter-sweet ending to the Irish football season.

I’ve never seen an offense shut down like ND was shut down last night.

That was the bitter part.

The sweet part was looking back at all the fun I’ve had rooting for Notre Dame this year and how much fun I’ll have watching Brady Quinn and Jeff Samardzija in the NFL next year.

It will be whole ‘nother team next year and I’m sure I’ll find my favorites, but I will miss this team.

Go Irish!


I swear, Journey changes band members more than most people change their underwear.

They’ve announced Jeff Scott Soto as their new lead singer.

The man is a dynamic singer with one hell of a stage presence.

I’m excited about the announcement, but will miss Steve Augeri, who had the awesome task of taking over after Steve Perry and did it with class and elegance.

What does this have to do with nursing?


But….woman does not live by nursing alone!

Ya gotta have some football and rock-and-roll in your life, ya know?

    Journey without Steve Perry is nothing but an empty shell of a band.

    That Sugar Bowl was embarrassing for ND.

    Love the rock and roll, but can do without the football (and I live in Packer country!)…give me a hockey game any time. Just had to add that.
    Yes, there is more to nursing…

    Anyone going to Boston for ENA Leadership?

    My husband was devastated by the ND game but he can dream for next year. Journey without Steve Perry just isn’t Journey to me. Ah the 80’s!
