so worked up about football games. He could never understand how 60,000 people could get together and spend all that time, effort, and money to watch a game, when taking those same 60,000 people and having them do some good in the world for 4 hours instead could make much more of a difference.
He once suggested that ND have a canned food drive at the stadium for the home game closest to Thanksgiving. I actually wrote Fr. Jenkins about it a few years ago, but never got a response.
