I love it when fall is in the air, the Texas Longhorns and Fighting Irish are on the tube and the homemade chili is on the stove.
Longhorns were my favorite college team, growing up. Haven't watched much college football in years, but always like them. Never was a big Notre Dame fan, until the movie "Rudy" came out. After that, you know, always liked them.
Now, my wife works for a major Catholic university, so if I don't root for Notre Dame, I get punched in the shoulder, hard. In that sense, she is a bit like Knute Rockne, only more aggressive and more intimidating.
