This is the best news I've gotten this week. The Big Guy has decided that we're going to do the commencement address at the University of Notre Dame.
There's all kinds of subtexts with this decision:
Big Boy isn't Catholic and Notre Dame is.
Big Guy loves all forms of stem-cell research; Notre Dame? Not so much.
Bill McGurn, former-President George W. Bush's chief speechwriter is a graduate of Notre Dame. I am not.
Notre Dame has "Touchdown Jesus", the White House has "4-6 Split Barack."
So how will we overcome these differences? Well, I can tell you we won't be having The Man reference, "Mackeral snappers," blaspheming the Four Horsemen, or mispronouncing Knute Rockne's name, if I have anything to do with it. But there's still plenty of time to screw this one up.
