SONG OF THE GAME

Sarah McLachlan - I Will Remember You

This is the last regular season game Notre Dame will play against BC before it runs away departs for the Big 10.

Goodbye Notre Dame. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

CAT PREDICTIONS

Mimi, our usual cat predictor, is under the weather so she took the week off. In her place is Banjo, a shy but super sweet 3 year old cat. Banjo went to pick BC, stopped, turned around, came back, and picked Notre Dame. It was very dramatic. She’s guessing that BC will get off to an early lead, only to let Notre Dame tie the game and end up winning in overtime.

Visit Mimi and friends at the Gifford Cat Shelter, the nation’s oldest cageless, no-kill shelter, located near BC on Undine Road in Brighton. Make a new friend before tonight’s game!

FINAL THOUGHTS

This will likely be a tough game for BC and should be a good indicator of how successful or not successful they will be as we head into trophy season.
