Digger Phelps dressed up as Mother Ginger for Sugar Plum Fairy dance

Retirement seems fun.

This is Digger Phelps. Yes, the man best known for coaching Notre Dame and always having his highlighter match his tie. It looks like he's enjoying himself in retirement.

Phelps was the halftime entertainment for Notre Dame's overtime victory over Michigan State, dressed as Mother Ginger for the Sugar Plum Fairy dance from "The Nutcracker". Apparently this is a tradition in South Bend. We like it.
