Irish Blogger Gathering: Spark It Up!

This weeks IBG is hosted by Three Guys In A Basement.

1. If you had the choice, which professional athlete would you rather be: A golfer on the PGA tour that hovers around 125-150 on the money list, a solid middle reliever in the MLB, a # 4 starter on an MLB team, a 10th man on an NBA roster, or a punter in the NFL?

The fourth starter in MLB. Those guys are far and away the highest paid athletes of the ones listed, and they bring more to the table. Just like 50 Cent- I want the money, the power, and the bitches.

2. If they made a movie about the history of Notre Dame football from 1997-2008, what actors would you cast as Bob Davie, Tyrone Willingham, George O’Leary and Charlie Weis? Picture comparisons will be helpful.

Gary Busey as Bob Davie

Dave Chappelle as Tyrone Willingham

Phil Donahue as George O'Leary

Vinny Pastore as Charlie Weis

3. We at (see JoeG) love the drink Sparks, which comes in Orange cans. While I can’t truly relate that to any type of question, I figured I’d mention that because we are playing the Orange this weekend. I guess if I had to tie it in, I would say that I associate Sparks with football tailgates (and my subsequent lack of recollection of the game). Do you have a favorite product that comes in the color Orange? And if so, do you relate it to football in any way shape or form?

Sunkist. But not just any old Sunkist, it has to be Sunkist in a can. I don't know why, but it just tastes better. Here's a little hint: mix gin with Sunkist. You can thank me later.

I don't really relate it to football, but if I drink enough of it with some of that gin, than I guess I could relate it to anything.

4. This last weekend, one of the more die-hard Notre Dame fans I know told me that he has twice rooted against Notre Dame. Is there any scenario where you would root against Notre Dame? Or should we make this friend (and guest columnist) be the next Ice-T in Surviving the Game?

No. no scenario that I could ever think of. People are fucking insane. Shoot him- quickly.

5. will host (in allegiance wiht and a tailgate for the USC game. First off, you are all cordially invited. Secondly, and more importantly, we are looking for necessities to have at a tailgate.

Seriously. If you don't have one of these, what have you been doing with your life?
