Notre Dame winning streak good for local businesses


The Fighting Irish are 6 and 0, and even though the game is over the city is steal reaping the benefits of another Notre Dame win. 

After a big win in overtime for the Irish Notre Dame fans are speechless.  Notre Dame Seniors Madeline Row and Peter Flores said, "We didn't even know what to say.  We were in Shock.  Complete Shock." Flores said, "everyone's excited beyond belief."  And Notre Dame Fan Brianna McNeal said, "I'm loving it absolutely I'm loving it.  I'm very proud." 

Fans aren't the only ones loving this winning streak.  Local businesses are too.  Greg Delinski, The General Manager of the Linebacker said, "anytime you have any kind of college or professional sport that does well people want to celebrate."  And when people want to celebrate,  Delinski said they go out to bars.  On a normal football weekend Delinski said between five and six thousand patrons come through his bar.  But Delinski said,  "now that we're winning I'll guarantee you there's probably double that."

And the Linebacker's not the only place dealing with huge crowds because of the Irish's undefeated record.  O'Rourkes Manager Tracy Post said,  "there were thousands to come through the door." 

The Delinski said because of how busy his bar is this year reminds him of the 1993 and 1998 seasons.  Other businesses say it's also a bonus when Notre Dame plays out of state teams because visitors usually stay longer.
