Why ND? How did you become a fan? It started with ND always being on TV for me as a kid. I quickly became a big Lou Holtz fan. Ron Powlus was one of my favorites and I followed Bryant Young, Ricky Watters as a young 49ers fan. From there, I was hooked.

Do you remember the first ND game you watched?  Very first game, no but started watching when I was really young, 4-5yrs old or so.

Which game was your first Irish game attended, and how many have you attended over your lifetime? First game wasn't until I was 28 when my girlfriend (now wife) took me to the Shamrock Series game against Miami at Soldier Field. Now we go to a game together every year and a group of my friends and I go to Sr. Day every year. About 10 games or so

What is ND's record in games you've attended (maybe you're the problem)? 7-3, Not the problem! Ha-ha

What is your favorite ND moment? I was at the Stanford game in the rain when Golson rolled left to hit Ben Koyack in the end zone as time expired. Our seats were in that end zone, that was awesome.

The most proud you've ever been to be a ND fan? Oddly enough, this off-season. I love how BK took his medicine and got to work. Really excited for 2017!  

The most angry you've ever been at a ND game? Michigan in 2013. I took my shirt off and threw it in a fire and went to be. Slightly inebriated, of course.

Have you ever physically broken something because you were so angry during or after a ND game? No
