A couple of recent Notre Dame greats square off in today’s Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos. Seattle’s Golden Tate, arguably one of the best wide receivers in Notre Dame history, and Denver’s David Bruton, a ball hawking safety for the Irish, represent Notre Dame tonight with one of them being crowned a Super Bowl champion.
Tate and Bruton were teammates together at Notre Dame during the 2007 and 2008 seasons. During that time Notre Dame won just 10 games combined, but since moving on to the NFL, both have become accustomed to winning. Bruton has played in the playoffs two of the last three years and would have last year as well had it not been for an injury. Tate has played post-season football three of the past four seasons as well.
While both have gotten used to winning, only one will be victorious tonight while the other is going to have an off-season full of the kind of what ifs I talked about in our story earlier today about Randy Moss and Notre Dame.
We wish player former Golden Domers good luck tonight and hope that both have strong performances for their respective teams. The best part for Notre Dame fans without a routing interest too is that at least one former Notre Dame player is going to win a ring tonight.
Who is everyone pulling for tonight? Let us know in the comments!
Good luck boys and Go Irish!
