FORT ERIE, ONTARIO - Notre Dame is having the football season of a lifetime surging towards their first undefeated campaign and possible national title since 1988.
The Fighting Irish have been my team ever since they captured the 1973 national championship with a 24-23 win over the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl on New Year’s Eve. That night QB Tom Clements stood deep in his end zone with less than a minute remaining - before hitting little used Robin Weber on a 35-yard, post pattern to earn the first down and preserve the victory.
Hamilton, Ontario - The final curtain call is just days away.
Barring a playoff miracle, the curtain will rise and fall for the final time at Ivor Wynne Stadium this Saturday afternoon when the Hamilton Tiger Cats host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
And if the Cats are to have any chance of a playoff appearance and a possible home playoff date - they’ll have to give a command performance against a Bomber team which also has its sights set on a playoff berth.
The Hamilton Tiger Cats are down to their ninth life as the team’s post-season hopes are quickly fading.
The team has to win its three remaining games and hope the Argos or Eskimos lose their last three to guarantee the Cats a second place finish in the East or fourth place via of the crossover in the West.

Players and coaches from the Orchard Park and St. Francis high school football teams filled the seats, along with a solid showing of Buffalo Bills fans. Three members of the Buffalo Jills also took part in the festivities.
