Chicago, A Cow and the Irish

So here we are, 11 minutes before halftime of a game Notre Dame cannot lose and the most dramatic moment at Notre Dame Stadium comes during a timeout break, when members of the rock band, "Chicago," go out on the field for a brief ceremony. Who's Chicago? They were popular back when Mrs. O'Leary's cow was causing downtown Windy City havoc.

Sorry. Chicago isn't that old, although by all the gray hair visible from the press box, they aren't ready to dominate the MTV airwaves anytime soon, either.

Meanwhile, the Irish are doing what they should be doing -- dominating hapless North Carolina. They need to impress voters and nothing impresses like a well-played game. So far, they doing just that, especially since the Tar Heels seem to have decided not to bother covering receivers today.
