  • Splurge A Little

    ||Save up/work that extra hour/plan your budget||

  • Indulge

    ||life is short/don’t miss out on having the time/experience of your life/ tip—instead of indulging in materialism indulge in sports||

  • Treat Yourself

    ||your’re worth it people
    it’s ok to be selfish once in a while for your favorite sports team or sports dreams/ just tell people “hey this is my life and my sports bucket list.”||

  • Have Fun

    ||life is meant to be lived out to the fullest/be that person that inspires others to pursue their sports fans’ dreams|| 

  • Find Your Passion

    ||What teams/events/places do you love?
    whether that’s american football/english soccer/basketball/baseball/yankee stadium/lambeau field— pick a destination and sporting event that you have always wanted to experience||
    ….go experience and live out your dreams!

  • Invest In Your happiness

    ||every sports fan knows there is no better feeling than having your team win a huge game— go be with fans at a crazy jam packed stadium and create new memories||
    Don’t be that person that regrets not living out their sports dreams…

Fighting Irish luck prevails for championship

Last night was unexpected. The unexpected met its match as No. 11  Notre Dame beat No. 19 UNC 90-82 to win the ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference)  title.

Since I have remembered I have always watched and grown up with watching Notre Dame sports since my grandfather “Boppa” is a proud graduate of the university. Even though I have not attended Notre Dame I consider myself to be a proud fighting Irish .

At a glance: 

This broke Irish history. Literally. To the point the fighting Irish have never won a ACC title or have been to a ACC finals game. Notre Dame even beat Duke twice this year which was a surprise in itself. Usually the women’s basketball team has the Irish luck for success– and for once in a blue moon the men’s basketball team took a little gold from that pot.

The MVP key player that transformed the tempo of the game came from the heart and soul of Jerian Grant- a fifth year senior- who scored 24 points to help his team. His vigorous athleticism and passion for basketball proved to fans and viewers.

Rarely does an underdog team beat the favorited team in a championship title. I like to think of the Notre Dame’s men’s team as the ‘Bad News Bears.’ No one thought they would win- or have a chance in the world- but destiny took a double glance and gave some hope and fight into the final minutes of the game. 

As a student or an athlete- this is a perfect example of the power of heart, determination, drive, passion all rolled into one game. Yes UNC gave Notre Dame a fright after halftime for the trophy… but the Irish said nope-this is OUR TIME.

Life gives unexpected moments- and it’s up to the individual and team to make history for themselves. To dream is to expect the unbelievable and impossible for yourself. All it takes is some time and discipline.

Are you game? JUST DO IT.
