For those of you familiar with Twitter, you will know how a topic can so easily spread like wildfire – especially one that causes any kind of controversy or humor.
Today, it was the latter – and in a big way, as the “sports twitterverse” latched on to a video posted by the University of Notre Dame. Yes, the university itself, promoting the “We are ND” concept in… well, we’ll call it a funky rap.
And wow, did it ever bring a few laughs – albeit quite unlikely the intention.
LOVE the Irish or HATE the Irish, we should all bond and get a good chuckle at this uh, “hype video”.
If that is in fact what it is intended to be.
Check it out for yourself below, but if you ask me – this is the REAL reason that Jimmy Clausen and Golden Tate bolted from the Irish a year early.
Bad ‘We are Notre Dame’ Rap Song
Attention Readers (Updated Part I): I can’t find this on YouTube any longer, guys. Seriously, it was so bad, it was funny – and now it doesn’t exist on the internet any longer. It vanished into thin air. I’ll keep trying to track it down and if I can, I’ll update this post with the updated video.
Maybe it was a copyright issue. Maybe it was just so bad that the internet rejected it.
Updated (Part II): I think I found it again. It has been many years, but this has to be it. If it embeds to the page, then it is as bad as it was when I first posted it.

Oh well, thank you for visiting The Wife Hates Sports, anyway.
Nice, man… hope that was custom made and not in ND colors. I’m guessing it’s probably orange and blue…
I think the bigger thing for me was how defensive he got when Clausen wasn’t picked until the second round… almost like he was feeling his cred melting away right in front of him. It happens… everyone feels different about people and heck, that Gruden taped piece on ESPN alone probably knocked him down on some team draft boards – Clausen that is.
I have a sign inside my condo which I slap every time I walk out the door.
It simply reads…. “Play like a SportsChump today.”
