I had wanted to go to the Notre Dame at Purdue football game this year. All of my old friends from school wanted to as well. But since this is always the most in-demand game on Purdue's schedule, tickets were only available as part of the season ticket package - no single game tickets available. So we got tickets to the Illinois game instead.

Imagine my surprise when I read online that ND had returned 500 of its allotment of tickets to the Purdue ticket office. I just called them up and bought 4 of them. I'm going to be at the game, and for the first time I can recall, Purdue is favored by 10 points over the Fighting Amish.

So when Notre Dame scoops up an unforced Purdue fumble and returns it 95 yards for a touchdown as time expires in the fourth quarter to give them a 1-point win, you'll know it was my fault. If only I stayed home and didn't watch the game, Purdue would bury them....

I've seen a lot of Purdue games...Iowa always schedules them for Homecoming. :-)

It always works that way. I think it's a cosmic rule or something.
