Some people in the record breaking Blue Gold crowd Saturday were not just celebrating the team.
A newlywed couple went straight from God's house to the house that Rockne built.
They could not have picked a better day to bring their whole wedding party outside. “My grandfather has been a huge Notre Dame fan for years and years. He died a year and a half ago. And we wanted to have him with us today, and we knew he was a huge Notre Dame football fan so we came out brought out wedding party, yes! We wanted to cheer on the Irish because we love them,” explains the groom, Thaddeus Ruszkowski.
His new bride, Linda adds, “We just got married at the Basicillica. We've been married 45 minutes and we're already at Notre Dame Football.Go Irish.”
Thaddeus got his graduate degree from Notre Dame.
Linda went to school just across the street at Saint Mary's.
