Notre Dame honoring Boston with these spring game decals

Notre Dame has special Boston helmet stickers to remember a city dealing with tragedy and a police lockdown.

Notre Dame's spring game is Saturday, and the Fighting Irish will play with a visual reminder of the scary situation in Boston on their helmets. Adidas gave them these stickers:

Subtle, but a nice touch on Notre Dame's typically blank helmets. The Holy War between the Notre Dame and Boston College brings the Fighting Irish to Boston -- where they understandably have quite a few fans -- once every two years, so there's a connection between the team in South Bend and an area that's dealing with tragedy at the moment.

The Eagles are expected to hold their spring game at Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill Saturday, and considering all of Boston is on lockdown right now, it wouldn't be surprising if the school opted to alter Steve Addazio's first spring exhibition.
