Bagpipe Monday... FMLA Style

Welcome back to Bagpipe Monday presented by Subway Domer. There is lots of stuff going on not only within the Notre Dame Football program, but also the Subway Domer Family program. My apologies to those who have suffered for the past few weeks with no bagpipes to rock out to on your computer screen, but if you have been following me for at least two days, than you know why. At any rate, welcome back.

This is the time in the Bagpipe Monday post where I usually list off the results of the previous poll. Well, I don't remember what that poll last actually contained. So, I have a small rundown of randomness:

  • Notre Dame is getting their ass handed to them by Alabama. Please vote your conscience.
  • The eligibility charts and recruiting map are now linked on the right sidebar. Use wisely.
  • NDNation.com has ended the Civil War and has opened up Rock's House to all who post there. Cartier Field remains, but really, it's disbanded.
  • I received this e-mail a few short weeks ago- "Why is it necessary to use such base language in your reporting. Is it because you want to come across as "one of the guys"? It seems very unnecessary and immature to me, adds nothing to the reporting and risks offending and alienating a sizable number of your readers. I think you're better than this and don't need locker room jargon to get your message to your readers. Personally, I lose respect for you when I read some of your offerings, laced with profanity and further, you diminish the University that you seem to care so deeply about. I hope you will think about this. Good Luck Warren " Seriously people. I get one of these a week or so. Don't take this too personal Warren, but who do you think you are? This is who I am and what this site is. I really don't give a shit. I am not a journalist- nor do I pretend to be. This is a blog by a member of the Subway Alumni... recognize.

And with that- please vote in this weeks poll and enjoy the pipes!

ND Nation: can't change the spots on a leopard. Never go there anymore. Nothing right at ND blah...blah...blah...

If someone is offended by what Subway Domer says, then they shouldn't read the site. I like it, and so does my wife.

Keep up the great work, and keep on bringing the pipes and drums for us to enjoy.

If someone bitches about the pipes, screw them!

I love the swearing; especially when referring to Michigan (sucks!), Urban Liar and usc. Congrats on the child, all the best to you, your wife and new joy.

Tednict, you probably need to read the comments a little before shooting off your mouth. Anon.is not saying anything about SD. He or she is commenting on ND Nation. I guess I support it. They have been negative, and have chased people who supported ND and Weis off their site. These are the same morons who said we should not have gone to a bowl game, first because we did not meet expectations this year, then of all things, for religious reasons. They have been negative about not only Weis, bot Swarbrick and even Jenkins.
Mike Franks went out of his way to register his disgust on a power hour i December and their negative impact on recruiting. Boycott them I say.
If you don't understand tednict, don't comment oyurself.

Hey Jim, I was commenting on what Warren said not what Anon at 8:47 AM wrote in his/her post. I was not referring to NDNation. You are off base.

As a matter of fact I did read what Subway said about Warren, and to that I replied. I like what Subway Domer says, and that is what it was about.

As for NDNation, I agree with you. I have grown tired of their constant criticism of Notre Dame.

Just because a guy runs a blog about ND football means that he is a representative of the University? Ask SD if he's ever received any compensation.

For those of you that haven't known him for the better part of 20years, this is how he's always been and always going to be. Very passionate about the Irish and vulger as hell!

Thanks guys. I can't understand how some of these people can still give me shit after 2 1/2 years of this. Maybe my reputation is not as well known as previosly thought.

$crot- it's actually "vulgar, like a motherfucker." That sounds more like me. And I thought you knew me...

Scrot said...

Well, I considered that, but I was afraid that your child would read it and think less of me.
