My lady flew out to Chicago last night from LA. Lots of Angelenos in ND gear on her flight. She noticed one Dad and his 2 sons, both very young (elementary school). Once cabin doors shut, the pilot goes on the PA, “welcome aboard flight 069 to Chicago Ohare, wed like to welcome passengers Jacob and Gregory who are on their way to see the big Notre Dame game this weekend.” the boys went ape shit and the passengers were all cheering. Upon landing and taxiing to the jetway, the pilot comes on the PA (usually its only the stewardess) and says, “welcome to Chicago Ohare, the time is 7pm. And Jacob and Gregory — Go Irish!”
How bout that as a sign for tomorrow? In a post 9-11 world, how could it be possible for a pilot to take such liberties with flight communications?! How much do you think the Dad paid him? Or maybe he’s an ND alum. Either way, those 2 boys are gonna be beast this weekend!!
