  1. NDSportsBlogger Retrospective: One Last Post

    Jun 9, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    And a few of the people I have had the opportunity to meet. From top left: Samantha (Steele) Ponder, Mike Greenberg, Mike Golic, Kirk Herbstreit, Ara Parseghian, Lee Corso, Johnny Lattner, Rocket Ismail and Bon Jovi.

    A new NDSportsBlogger starts tomorrow, so here’s one final post before I retire (emeritus status?). Enjoy. Two summers ago, I was back home in New York, a recent ND grad with not much of a clue about where life after college was going to take me. I knew I wanted to work in sports. I…

  2. From The NDSportsBlogger Archives: Random Photos

    I'm not sure which of the players' Twitter account I stole this one from, but it's a priceless shot from the Tower of Terror.

    One last gallery…Here are a few photos that just didn’t fit into any of the previous categories… Enjoy.

  3. From The NDSportsBlogger Archives: Great Moments

    As Kurt Russell (or USA hockey coach Herb Brooks) said in Miracle, “Great moments are born from great opportunity.” By no means would I compare my NDSportsBlogger career to team USA defeating the Soviets in the 1980 Winter Olympics, but that quote came to mind as I was thinking about these photos (and to be…

    The following is part two of three blog entries looking back on my internship with Fighting Irish Digital Media. A new “NDSportsBlogger” is set to begin next week, so I will be posting part three on Friday with a few final thoughts on my experience with FIDM. While June and July are quiet on Notre…

  5. European Vacation: Notre Dame Volleyball Style – Wrapping Up The Trip

    Jun 6, 2013, 2:49 PM EDT

    The entire traveling party in front of the Duomo of Milan, whose foundation was laid in 1386!

    Well I’m back from Europe and finally ok with the Eastern Time Zone again after days of waking up actually ready to accomplish things before 8 a.m. (hate it). Now it’s time for me to take a look back at a truly amazing trip with Notre Dame volleyball. It’s hard to summarize an 11-day trip…

  6. From The NDSportsBlogger Archives: Behind The Scenes

    Jun 6, 2013, 8:28 AM EDT

    The captains prep for the coin toss at Aviva Stadium.

    Throughout almost two years with Fighting Irish Digital Media, there were a lot of moments where I was on the scene when the cameras were rolling, or just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Here are some of my favorite behind the scenes photos.

  7. From The NDSportsBlogger Archives: Photos I’m Proud Of

    Jun 4, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    This photo of the Temple Bar district felt like it belongs as a computer background, or a postcard.

    No matter how many megapixels your phone’s camera says it has, anyone who has ever taken a photo on a phone knows how hit or miss image quality can be. Here are a few I snapped on the ol’ HTC Evo that turned out pretty awesome.

  8. NDSportsBlogger Retrospective: Part 1

    The following is the first of three blog entries looking back on my internship with Fighting Irish Digital Media. With a new intern set to start next week, I will be posting these blogs, along with several photos from my experience, over the next several days. I have a tendency to be long-winded sometimes, but…

  9. A Player’s Perspective: Wrapping Up The European Journey

    Jun 1, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Toni Alugbue (right) and I were all set for the ropes course in Maribor, Slovenia!

    Hey Irish Fans! Wow, what an unbelievable trip it has been! Sitting in the airport and thinking back to all the cities, matches and memories that were made during these past 10 days seems like a dream! The trip started off in Prague with our wonderful tour guide Jirka. We visited the castle, immersed ourselves…

  10. A Player’s Perspective: Lake Como and Milan

    May 29, 2013, 11:44 PM EDT

    Me (left) and Andrea McHugh

    Ciao from Milan! Today we woke up around 8:30 am and had a quick breakfast of hard-boiled eggs, fruit and pastries at the hotel then loaded up on the bus and left for the day to Lake Como. Lake Como, Lago di Como as it is called in Italian, is widely regarded as one of…

  11. European Vacation: Notre Dame Volleyball Style – Venice and Milan

    May 29, 2013, 11:38 PM EDT

    The Arch of Peace in Milan, Italy.

    Heading into Venice I only had one real question and it’s similar to the chicken and the egg argument … was the water already there and they built the buildings into the water or was the city there and the water invaded like an unwanted (insert species of the insect kingdom that you like the…

  12. A Player’s Perspective: Milan – Part Two

    IMG_3405

    Today in Milan was especially nice because not only did we get to sleep in but we also were able to use the public transportation to go into the city on our own for the first time. As difficult as that may sound in a city that is unknown to most of us, it actually…

  13. A Player’s Perspective: Milan – Day One

    May 28, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Me (left) and Kathleen Severyn

    Ciao! Today started off interesting because I woke up in Venice and ended my day in Milan! My journey to Milan began with a speed train from Venice to Milan that took a little over two hours. I was very excited to get to Milan because it’s the Italian city that I have the most…

    Venice, Italy, the City of Romance; once the home of the famous lover Casanova, the city is now the destination of many couples on their honeymoon or vacation. And, of course, Notre Dame Volleyball. I was very excited to visit the floating city, my excitement only dulled by the Nyquil I took the night before…

  15. European Vacation: Notre Dame Volleyball Style – Maribor and Venice

    May 28, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    The view from the mountains where we did the ropes course.

    It’s only been three days since my last blog, but when you’re trying to describe a European trip three days feels more like a week. It’s a little overwhelming trying to decide where to start and how much detail to include. Since Nicole Smith, Kathleen Severyn and Maggie Brindock did a wonderful job describing Vienna…

  16. A Player’s Perspective: Maribor – Day Two

    May 27, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Me (right) and fellow senior Andrea McHugh.

    Hello my fellow Irish fans! Wow, what a wonderful day in Maribor, Slovenia! The day started with the team getting up around 8 a.m. and heading over for a hearty breakfast including eggs, vegetables, yogurt and toast! After breakfast we headed to town. Every Saturday here in Maribor, there is a market that is popular…

  17. A Player’s Perspective: Maribor – Day One

    On top of the mountain near our hotel, where the ropes course was located.

    After a great night of sleep in our super comfy beds in Maribor, we woke up early for an adventurous day. Our hotel is also a ski resort in the winter, backing into a mountain. We took a ski lift up to a plateau, where there was a ropes course and “swing.” The view overlooked…

  18. A Player’s Perspective: Vienna

    May 24, 2013, 5:25 PM EDT

    Me (right) along with Hanna Muzzonigro and Sammie Brown.

    Notre Dame Volleyball got off to an early start today to say farewell to Prague. It was an amazing experience spending time in such a beautiful city. Although I was a little sad to leave, I was really excited to travel to Vienna. I had heard wonderful things about Austria and I was looking forward…

  19. European Vacation: Notre Dame Volleyball Style – Three Countries In One Day

    May 23, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    The John Lennon Wall

    Well I’ve reached that point that happens on all great trips … I don’t have a clue what day of the week it is. Thought it was Tuesday for most of the day yesterday only to be told later that it was Wednesday. Huh? I have never quite understood how this can happen. Has to…

  20. A Player’s Perspective – Prague: Part Three

    May 23, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Me (right) and Sammie Brown at the Prague Castle.

    Today we were free to do whatever we wanted until the late afternoon. We started together, walking by the John Lennon wall. This wall is full of graffiti that is updated nearly every day. It consists of messages of peace and love, brightly painted across the wall. Most of the group, including Sammie (Brown), Mags…

  21. A Player’s Perspective – Prague: Part Two

    May 22, 2013, 10:12 AM EDT

    From left to right: Me, Kathleen Severyn and Erin Klosterman

    We started today with breakfast in the hotel – pastries galore, as well as some kind of brown potato pancakes that several teammates/coaches bit into expecting sausage. At 9 a.m., we left for the Prague Castle, the largest castle in the world. We climbed 285 steps up to the top to see the amazing view…

  22. European Vacation: Notre Dame Volleyball Style – Opening Thoughts on Prague

    May 21, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

    DSCN0660

    As the bus rolled out from the Joyce Center I couldn’t help but be a little bit nervous about the upcoming trip. At 26 years old it’s my first trip overseas. Heck except for Montreal, Toronto and Niagara Falls in Canada and Tijuana, Mexico (I’m not even sure that counts as international travel) I’ve never…

  23. Welcome To Praha!

    A picture of me (right) along with fellow junior Kathleen Severyn.

    We had a great start to our tour after leaving from Chicago yesterday. We began with a little excitement by seeing Anthony Davis (NBA basketball player – New Orleans Pelicans) in the security line at O’Hare Airport! Once we boarded the plane, most of us slept through the eight-hour flight from Chicago to London Heathrow.…

  24. European Vacation: Notre Dame Volleyball Style – Leading Up To The Trip

    May 17, 2013, 11:32 AM EDT

    NOTRE DAME

    We are just two days away from leaving on a once in a lifetime trip to Europe – all 22 of us. Included in the 22 are 12 players, four support staff, three coaches, two Notre Dame students and one sport administrator (sentence works best when said to beat of The Twelve Days of Christmas). The…

    Since I’ve moved to a new position with the Monogram Club from Fighting Irish Digital Media, I haven’t had much time for blogging or tweeting (don’t worry – there will be a new @NDSportsBlogger soon). However, I’m obviously still listening to music, and Christianne asked me to put together a new playlist for the Fighting…
