From The Desk Of… “Excuse Me, uh, Ma’am?”

This story comes from Mike Hatke’s early morning experience at a Chicago train station, which he promptly emailed. Good Work.

“Walking between train stations this morning someone in front of me
dropped their sunglasses. I picked them up and starting walking faster
to catch up with them. Longer hair, femine looking coat and bag, it’s
a woman right? I get up next to them and say, ‘excuse me ma’am, you
dropped these.’ this guy turns around and says ‘o thanks’ in a very
deep voice. oops. haha.”

The rafters at the newly announced hockey facility just might be full of banners even before the Irish play a game inside of it. At the very least, the 2008-2009 CCHA Regular Season Championship banner will hang, as Notre Dame swept the weekend series with UNO and second place Miami (OH) lost to and tied Northern Michigan in their weekend series. ND obviously hopes that it isn’t the only banner they earn this season.

The title didn’t come easy. It was a physical, hard-fought weekend sprinkled with some fortuitous bounces and questionable officiating. Even Coach Jackson acknowledged that the Irish were extremely fortunate to have won Friday night’s game, a thrilling 4-3 OT win.

The Omaha Civic Auditorium lived up to the hype. Close to 8,000 packed the building each night, affectionately named “The Barn,” to hopefully watch UNO upset the #2 ranked Irish. There was a sizeable Irish fan presence and the roar after each Irish goal rivaled that of the UNO fans. What they did have was cowbell. Lots and Lots of cowbell.
