go irish, beat boilermakers

The Notre Dame vs. Purdue game is a big deal for my family since we have graduates from both schools among my siblings and cousins. So we were super excited for the Notre Dame Shamrock Series (our annual home-away-from-home game) at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis this year! Our tailgate was complete with delicious food, cornhole, and our annual game of "cups." Before the game, we walked towards Georgia Street where the pre-game show was being filmed and met up with some of my high school friends in the Purdue lot.

I didn't expect the roof to be open in Lucas Oil. The day was gorgeous when the sun was out, but it got pretty chilly by half time!

Purdue put up a good fight in the first half, so I was a little worried. I kept thinking, "At least if we lose to Purdue, Michigan will feel even worse about being shut out by Notre Dame." That's mean of me. Sorry, Michigan (but not really). On to the next game: Go Irish, Beat Orange!
