Sunday Morning Fact Checking

As is my Sunday night custom, I'm sitting down with a brew dog and watching my Tivo-ed College Football Final show, catching up on yesterday's college football action. So they show the Notre Dame highlights and then do a quick little piece on last-second Irish victories. After showing the Chicken Soup Bowl, they spotlight the legendary Snow Bowl against Penn State and erroneously say that it occured in November of 1982. Of course, every Irish fan remembers vividly where they were on that fateful day in November of 1992. If the MC Hammer haircuts on most of the players wasn't enough of an indication, maybe one of the guys in the studio could have chimed in and corrected the mistake. Like, for example, the guy who coached the game! Wake up, Lou!

I suppose it's an honest mistake, since neither Lou Holtz nor Joe Paterno aged a day between 1982 and 1992.
