  1. The Host with the Most

    Apr 23, 2014, 11:17 AM EDT

    In his trademark jacket, shorts, and crew socks, Lachowecki co-hosts the 2013 OSCARS with Grant Van De Casteele.

    Max Lachowecki is a funny guy. His friends, dorm mates, teammates, coaches and professors probably all knew it long before the rest of us did, but when he and Grant Van De Casteele began making their online talk-show series Grant & Max 1080*, the entire Notre Dame community got to meet Max… …or at least his…

    Monday was another great day of Notre Dame athletics as multiple teams competed on big stages. After breaking the 14-game winning streak of the Hurricanes on Sunday, the Notre Dame baseball team lost a tough one on Monday to Miami to drop the series. On the links the men’s golf team had a spectacular day…

    Whether it is baseball or softball, a very small margin of error is allowed in order to ensure victory. A simple mistake on a routine play could be the difference between winning and losing. On Saturday, Notre Dame softball played the Florida State Seminoles in their first Atlantic Coast Conference home game and it was…

    Tuesday was another great day at Notre Dame. Although we only had one game going on yesterday (a women’s lacrosse setback to Ohio State), we had another event that is quite unique to the University. One of the lesser-known events at Notre Dame happened last night, the Notre Dame Monogram Club Letter Jacket Ceremony. I…

    Irish alumni continue to flourish in professional sports as Riley Sheahan helped the Red Wings claim yet another Stanley Cup playoff berth with a tally in last night’s game.

    It was a tough night on the hardwood for the Irish women’s basketball as they went for their second NCAA title against archrival Connecticut. The Irish fell short against the “Miami Heat-like” Connecticut Huskies. The women’s squad holds their heads high as they participated in the Final Four in each of the last four years…

    In the top of the sixth inning of the Notre Dame baseball game, Wake Forest pinch hit Kevin Jordan for Kelly Garrett with the Demon Deacons up 6-4 on the Fighting Irish. Looking at the box score, you would think he struck out and his at bat meant nothing but a missed opportunity. However, if…

    On Wednesday afternoon, Notre Dame softball faced off against Eastern Michigan University. Because of the weather delays that took place this past weekend, the team had a ten day hiatus since their last game. This lack of in-game play showed in the early innings when the Eagles put up a two-run lead in the top of the third inning off of the…

It was fun, and it ended too soon. This year, I was a Notre Dame Hockey fan and the Notre Dame Hockey Jr. Blogger. As such, I invested a…
