April’s Notre Dame Spring Blue-Gold game was the 30th I have worked and about the 40th I have attended, and still there was a first. It was the first time I have ever heard a player booed at the spring game, which is no more than a glorified scrimmage. The player was quarterback Tommy Rees. I couldn’t believe it, but maybe if I had spent a little more time on line reading various Notre Dame fan forums I could have easily believed it. Then again I would rather have a root canal than spend a lot of time on line reading fan forums, because some of these people are not exactly real fans. They are either overly-possessed about Notre Dame football or, in a minority of cases, hate anything and everything Notre Dame.
