I got my passport and my Notre Dame football tickets in the mail yesterday. I’ll be going to the Penn State game with my uncle, the same one who took me to my first ND game [and Lou Holtz’s last] as my 16th birthday present. Tickets for Michigan, Purdue and UCLA also go to him, but I’ve got tickets for the Monogram game against Army to mark the tenth anniversary of my first ND game.
The passport turnaround was much faster than I thought. Something like a month instead of 3 like I’d heard. Good thing too, because Americans won’t be able to get back into the US from Canada without a passport starting January 1, 2007.
Also received in the mail yesterday: Finder.
