If you’ve been paying attention to any national sports media this week you’re aware that Notre Dame football has taken over the city of New York. Appearances by Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman and a handful of players on ESPN, NFL Network, and other outlets has been pretty regular the last few days.
To cap off the week Marcus Freeman threw out the first pitch at Friday night’s New York Mets game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Pitching for the Mets was future Hall of Famer Justin Verlander who is married to supermodel and former Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover-girl Kate Upton.

Well look at that, Notre Dame steals another fan originally from the state of Michigan.
The luck of the Irish wasn’t in the building for Verlander or the Mets on Friday night though as the Dodgers beat them 6-0.
Also worth noting is that Blake Fisher is listed at 6-6, 310-pounds yet looks like a fullback compared to Alt.
