Losing their religion

TUFFET TALK

One of the most interesting
things about the Notre Dame vs.
Michigan game is what it does to
the religious attitudes of fans.
Take for example the guy ina
Michigan shirt I overheard yell-
ing at a guy in a Notre Dame shirt
at a tailgate party.
"You know what?" he yelled. "I
hate your team. And I hate your
religion."
Then there was the pope.
Outside the stadium, a student
was dressed as the Holy Father. He
wasn't giving the sign of the cross,
though. Instead, he held up a foam
hand that said "Shock 'em."
His friend was holding a sign
that pointed out the obvious:
"The pope is a Michigan fan."
