Not even former Irish walk-on Rudy Ruettiger, subject of a popular work of fiction centered around Notre Dame football, was able to get into SunLife Monday night via the school. A good thing for their chances against Alabama, however, as Rudy does not have a winning record against the SEC.
He will still be making a corporate appearance:
Rudy had one suggestion for those still hoping to score a ticket: "The best seat is on the fifty yard line ... in your living room," he said, laughing. But he, at least, did eventually find a way to be there. "Mercedes-Benz is bringing me in; I'll be in their suite," he told me. "Thank God for ‘Rudy'!"
