Traffic didn't seem to trouble Irish fans

Posted:

We've been talking about it for weeks, how would traffic be on Notre Dame game day?

Despite all the construction around town, the answer from fans might surprise you.

It was all smiles outside Notre Dame stadium as fans kicked off the 2013 season.

"College football is awesome, you know we're here rooting on the Irish and can't wait to have it back," says fan Dino Freeman who came all the way from Dallas.

While it's not surprising that fans were excited for the start of football.

What was surprising was that traffic over to the game was pretty much smooth sailing, despite all the construction around Michiana.

"We had heard some horror stories, but really all the police officers and staff really helped out. I thought it was great. Really perfectly executed," says Freeman.

Most fans agreed, traffic was great and those who didn't weren't blaming construction, or other cars.

"No problem with the traffic. Did have a little problem with my wife sitting in the back seat acting like a human GPS. Besides that we were alright," says Bill Fox, Jr. who came from Philadelphia.

After an easy drive over, everyone was ready to cheer on the Irish.

"I'm excited. I went to every game last year, started in Dublin, ended in Miami. Came up a little short, but I have a good feeling about this year as well," says Granger fan, Kevin Murphy.

"Just a wonderful experience. Glad to be here with family and friends," says Fox, Jr.

Freeman says, "It's been awesome. How does it get any better than this? It's Notre Dame football, tailgating style, right here."
