Being a child raised on Notre Dame football it was also my dream to wear the blue and gold. For the first decade of my life, my dad kept me from it because of profanity (I know his intetions were good); but once I did see Rudy, I fell in love with it. Every night I used to watch it so that I would have the motivation that I would need to have for football practice the next day. It is filled with dreams, heartbreak, determination, and triumph. This is an example of an All-American story and should be seen by all who enjoy watching a good film.
