Who knew the Blue/Gold Game was afoot?

Who knew the Blue/Gold Game was afoot?

(Notre Dame, Indiana)  Who knew?  Right?  I mean: Come on, who knew that the Fighting Irish were having their annual Blue/Gold Game on Saturday, April 16, 2016—the very day that we had booked seats at the Browning Cinema in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center to enjoy beyond measure The Met: Live in HD broadcast of the live performance at the Metropolitan Opera in New York of Gaetano Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux featuring Evanston’s very own Matthew Polenzani in the title role and another Chicago area native, Sondra Radvanovsky, as the aged Queen Elizabeth desperately trying to save her last chance at love.  So when we got close to campus, we said:  “Uh oh!  Some game is afoot.” Oh yeah, the aforementioned Blue/Gold Game and all of America was streaming in to see it.  But then there were those plucky opera lovers like us, who like furry mammals scurrying under the feet of the lumbering dinosaurs, slipped through the crowd, found elusive parking spots and got to the Browning Cinema in time to be swept away by Sondra Radvanovsky and her loyal and disloyal subjects.  So when I titled this post, BMOC, I meant it to say both: Big Men On Campus, and Big Met Opera Campus.
