When I saw that Notre Dame’s football team was ranked #1 for the first time since 1993, it made me smile. Dad would have been absolutely thrilled.
As I’ve written before, Dad was a huge Fighting Irish fan. Dad wasn’t a huge sports fan, but he did love Notre Dame football.
The school lights up a #1 sign when any sports team at Notre Dame is nationally ranked #1. I like to think that Dad can see that light glowing bright and strong wherever his spirit is now.
Sometimes it’s the little things that remind you so strongly of loved ones that have departed.
