Every other year for the past few years, Notre Dame has played Stanford here in the bay area, just a few miles from my house, on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.  And each year, our tradition of tailgating before the game and going to the game has become a bigger event.  My brother goes all out in the hosting/setting up/coordinating department!

Here he is playing with the new ND bean bag toss.

Great Cach!
Lil' Guy can already catch and throw a football pretty well for a four-year old.


Ah! Sticks, dirt and rocks!  Perfect entertainment for Lil' Guy!

Go Irish!

There was tons of food, but my favorite by far were these cupcakes my sister-in-law made!  Too cute!

We had great seats and it is always awesome to watch and cheer for the Irish in person!


Yeah, it was a tough loss.  And lil' guy was worn out from the torture of the Irish not playing too great.

Best Tailgate Ever!

This year we had another fabulous time, despite the sad loss.  But I can't wait for 2013!  Go Irish!!  Hey, at least we made it to a bowl game!  One more football game to look forward to!

Go Irish!
