One man loves the Notre Dame Fighting Irish so much that he has opted to get the university's Golden Dome building tattooed on his head. The tattoo took nine hours to complete, but Tracey Moore believes it was worth it to support his favorite team.
“It was painful,” Moore said. “I can’t say it didn’t hurt, because it did.”
Moore told ABC57 that he always keeps his head shaved “so it was just a unique place to do it.”
Tattoo artist Brandon Hunt says he worked on several sketches before coming up with the final design.
“I looked at the Notre Dame building itself; making sure all of the details were in there, so that way it could be distinctive as Notre Dame,” Hunt said.
“It’s been great,” Moore said. “I have pictures taken all over the place. If I had money for every picture taken, I’d be rich.”
Notre Dame football is officially back, boys and girls. There’s no getting around it now.
On the road. Against an offense averaging 44 points per game. A redshirt freshman quarterback against a defense allowing 15 points per game. All of this added up to what most thought would be the unraveling a Fighting Irish football team that had outplayed that talent it actually had.
While many commentators acted like the Oklahoma Sooners would easily defeat Notre Dame on Saturday night in Norman, others were not as convinced. Notre Dame vindicated those who argued against the media narrative that Notre Dame was a pretender about to be exposed by the Sooners. If anyone got exposed as a pretender, it was the Sooners and their finesse offense and defense.
The Oklahoma Sooners have been on a roll lately, winning their last three games by an average score of 52-16. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish, meanwhile, have just survived yet another one possession game by edging past BYU, 17-14. Surely, Oklahoma will put the boots to Notre Dame and pop another Irish Bubble. Surely Notre Dame does not deserve to be in the list of national championship...
Tailgater Top 25 Rankings, Week 9
I was pretty rough on Notre Dame when the Irish were helped to their win over Stanford. And for the record, Notre Dame deserved it. Stanford still isn’t very good, that Stephon Taylor still scored that touchdown.But college football changes week to week more than any other sport, and week 9 is no exception. After struggling against the Cardinal...
There can be no question as to whether or not the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are back or not. The Irish dominated the number 8 Sooners on Saturday night on their way to 8 – 0. The 30 – 13 score doesn’t even begin to explain how impressive the Irish looked. Notre Dame had 3 rushing touchdowns from 3 different rushers. Golson, Wood, and Riddick all rushed for a touchdown. Golson...
(Eds: Adds details, comments. With AP Photos.) By JEFF LATZKE AP College Football Writer Brian Kelly folded his arms across his chest and shook his head in disgust at a promising Notre Dame drive that stalled out in the red zone.
His young quarterback, Everett Golson, had just planted a third-down throw in the grass a few feet too far away for second-team All-American Tyler Eifert...
