T-shirt #336: HOLY CROSS CRUSADERS (Football)



If you told me that one year I would own and wear six different Holy Cross shirts, I might have believed you – when I was eight years old!

Growing up, I rooted for Holy Cross and because of that actually rooted against Boston College (even though BC had Doug Flutie and they would beat HC 65-3).

That all changed the summer between my junior and senior year of college when I went to visit BC with my aunt and cousin. As soon as I stepped into the hockey arena, I knew that’s where I wanted to go to school.

Although my father (Holy Cross ’68) didn’t object to my choice of going to BC, he did wear a purple shirt every time he helped move me in or picked me up. Funny guy, and luckily the kind of guy that can pull off wearing purple. (More on my Dad’s college allegiance here: http://davestshirts.blogspot.com/2010/02/t-shirt-42-holy-cross-hockey.html)

I wore this shirt today because it’s another fun Thursday night with the Holy Cross volunteers. Tonight, we are setting up the holiday decorations! Should be tons o’ fun….

Will write more and post more pics later. In the meantime, here are the rest of my Holy Cross t-shirt blogs:

It was a fun and productive night at the Lodge tonight. The HC volunteers did a wonderful job sorting through, taking out, and putting up all the holiday decorations. And they did an even better job putting up with my wise-ass comments all night! Some of the guests designed their own ornaments, and others helped decorate the Christmas tree. I am thankful to have such a great job every day, but it’s nights like tonight that remind me how much of a blessing it is!

Looking forward to our Hope for the Holidays open house next Wednesday, December 8th from 5-8. All are welcome, let me know if you want more details!
