Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:
This is a great time of year – the students are back on campus, fall sports have begun, and the local Club events pick up steam. On the sports front, the football team starts the season 1-0, and Irish volleyball and men’s soccer are also undefeated. All three teams include students from San Diego, including two freshmen on the football roster, one on the volleyball team and one on the men’s soccer team! Check out UND.com for schedules, rosters and where you can see the teams compete on your TV (or PC). Good luck to all the fall sports teams, and especially to our local students! Here are the details on upcoming events, hope to see you at one or more of them!
Georgia Game Watch!
Saturday, September 9th, 4:30 pm (Pacific Time)
In the wake of a convincing win against Temple, our beloved Irish have cracked the top 25, entering the AP poll at #24. This week presents a great chance to climb a few more notches, as #15 Georgia travels to the house that Rockne built. UGA and the Irish only have one match-up in their long and storied histories, a January 1981 Sugar Bowl matchup in which UGA bested the Irish 17-10, so not much history to apply to this particular contest, other than an opportunity to even things up. As I write this, Notre Dame is the betting favorite, but the game is predicted to be close. Game time is perfect for having some great food among friends and watching a football game, so please join us at one of our three fantastic locations. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. Here’s how to find us: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista
