Height:  5'8 Weight:  190 lbs. Alumni Status:  '05 BA, Political Science/Theology
Location:  Evansville, IN Favorite Baseball Team:  Cardinals
Natural Enemies:  Cubs fans, Wolverines (especially those who don't know their own fight song)

Athletic Ability: Essentially nil

Sartorial Style: Just a little trad; I like the idea of "bringing back the hat." I hate all things acrylic.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: Hard cider, bourbon, various wines, and bocks and other dark lagers. Good Belgian ales are growing on me, as is Scottish ale (Dirty Bastard!).

Political Philosophy: Traditional conservative with an agrarian/communitarian bent. I disagree with 90% of what the Republicans say and 99% of what the Democrats do. I favor the state that best promotes the tradition of the virtues. I used to sometimes call myself a populist, pre-Trump.

Religious Philosophy: Catholic, and serious enough to get two degrees in it. Basically in the "Communio" school of theology, big on the thought of JPII, Benedict, etc. I also like Latin.

Musical Favorites: Mostly country, especially the old stuff, with my favorites being Haggard and Cash. I also like some classic rock, especially the Eagles and Poco. I'm not a big fan of classical generally, but I do like chant, Josquin, Palestrina, and other sacred music. Today, I favor Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, and the like.

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: "We're gonna win the damn game and get the damn game bawl." - Bob Davie, trying to get the ND band pumped up in 2001.

Miscellaneous Data: Had four coaches in four years at Notre Dame, and it looks like Bob Davie was somehow the best one. Or maybe George O'Leary.

I don't like piped-in music, JumboTrons, or FieldTurf. I also don't like the marching band dancing in the middle of a field show or the designated hitter. That said, I don't have a problem with an option-based spread. But you have to have a fullback.
