Early this morning I walked to the Institute to check my email. Before checking my mail, I went to the ESPN site. It was hard to surpress a smile when I saw, on the front page, “Irish rip Pitt 42-21.” Judging from this single game, the new season looks promising. I won’t be at any of the games, but I have friends going to almost every one, which seems like the next best alternative. Already, I have my fingers crossed for the tough matchup this weekend against #4 Michigan.
