Here is last night's text conversation between me and a friend who roots for the Irish who inexplicably lost again yesterday, this time to traditional basketball power UConn who has only been playing DI football since 2002 or something.
Me: Looks like the end for Charlie Weis.
NDF: Come home, Urban.
Me: Urban Meyer would be insane to leave Florida for the 24/7 psychodrama that is Notre Dame football. My personal choice for that job would be Jim Harbaugh if only to prove that the Irish would still suck with a white coach from Stanford. Besides, the Chicago papers say the coach at Cincinnati has the inside track.
NDF: That's what I've heard. I'm saying a novena for Urban.
Me: After all, why waste them on the sick and the poor?
NDF: That's what they're for, asshole.
Me: Ah! Might I suggest that ecumenicism is not exactly your strong suit?
I got no response. Somewhere Ty Willingham and Bob Davie are laughing their asses off.
