Notre Dame vs Texas – Irish thrash the Longhorns…

I generally don’t write much about Notre Dame at this point, because I’ve spent so many weekends there that I don’t have much to add to the site.  This trip was a fortuitous one, to witness the Irish host the Longhorns in a rare matchup between two of the most historic programs in the sport.  Despite the heavy billing of the contest, the Longhorns are in the midst down cycle in their program, and didn’t put up much of fight on this day.  The Irish easily handled the sputtering Longhorn squad on this day, running away with a lopsided 38-3 blowout.  I earnestly hope the Texas program bounce back to it’s historical dominance, and the game next year in Austin can live up to the hype of these two legendary programs.

Nevertheless, it’s always a treat to be back in South Bend for the weekend, touring the magnificent campus, and downing a few meatball subs from Polito’s.  With a few marquee names coming to South Bend in the future like Georgia and Ohio State, I look forward to more of these powerhouse games in the House that Rock Built.

….And Our Hearts Forever Love Thee Notre Dame

Attempting to describe a football weekend at Notre Dame is an impossible task for me.If you could go to only one college football game in your life, it should be viewed within the historic brick walls of the House that Rock Built.Notre Dame is a transcendent experience simply beyond description.

Instead I will defer to the great Lou Holtz.

“If you’ve been here, no explanation is necessary. If you haven’t been, no explanation will suffice.”

Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs…

I consider myself a purveyor of the finer things in life.BBQ, hot dogs, giant sandwiches, epic burritos and of course Meatball Subs.At its essence the meatball sub is a rather simple creation: spiced ground meat, marinara sauce, cheese and good hearty bread.But there is a subtlety to this art, a subtlety which seems to elude the entire state of Texas. Frustratingly, I haven’t been able to find a serviceable meatball sub in almost three years here, lest you count a limp, soggy sub roll with “meatballs” that just rolled off the Sysco truck.

Given this absence of acceptable meat spheres in a state sorely lacking enough Italian heritage, I was primed for my visit back to South Bend for one of the best meatball subs on the planet at Polito’s restaurant.

Whether you call it a hero, hoagie, grinder or sub, this sandwich at Polito’s is a genuine work of art.It’s the perfect blend of spiced homemade meatballs, gooey mozzarella and hearty marinara sauce.What truly sets Polito’s apart, however, is their bread.They have thicker almost pizza-like bread that has a good firm bite to it.Most importantly, the bread maintains its structural integrity despite being stuffed with enough meat, cheese and sauce to choke an alligator.

These gifts from the Italian gods were a staple of my diet in South Bend, and it’s no mystery why they are an integral part of my annual pilgrimage back to Notre Dame each year.
