Shake Down the Thunder
College football isn’t real big in Greater Boston. Sure there are some Boston College fans, who are known primarily for not traveling and insuring that BC gets relegated to bowl games in Boise and Charlotte. In fact it could be argued that Notre Dame is actually the team of choice for Bostonians.
These are not good times for the Irish, and there’s a parody of those great Bud Light commercials making the rounds on the internet while Damers wait for Jimmy Clausen to transform into Joe Montana.
Bud Light Salutes the Blue and Gold
Announcer: Today we salute you, Mr. Delusional, Irrational Notre Dame football Fan….
Announcer: Season after season, year after year, you try to justify your absurdly high pre-season ranking.
Backup singer: Why aren’t we number one??
Announcer: You scramble to make futile attempts at damage control when the Irish lose to yet another grossly inferior opponent.
Backup singer: Charlie’s headset was broken!
Announcer: Inevitably, you’ll bring up the past, and boast of championships won 20 years before you were born.
Backup singer: We wore leather helmets!!
Announcer: You will point out that you have more Heisman winners than any other program, as though that is relevant to the current season.
Backup singer: Been playing since the 1880ssssss!
Announcer: Go on, ignore that home loss to Boston College in the regular season for the 6th consecutive time in a row…
Backup singer: BC has better Christians!!
Announcer: And continue to believe that you’ll actually win a bowl game some time this century.
Backup singer: We’re O for the 2000’s!!!
Announcer: So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, oh Emperor of Excuses, and take comfort knowing that when you don’t finish in the top 25, you’ll be back to number three when the pre-season polls come out next year.
Backup singer: Mr. Delusional, Irrational and Hopelessly Pathetic Irish
