With just under 83 days until Notre Dame kicks off in Dublin, a friend asked me if I were lucky enough to have the teams that I root for win a collective 10 championships, how would I allot them? Since I'm a ND, Cubs, Bears, and Bulls fan, in my life those teams have won a total 8 titles in my life time (thanks Michael Jordan for 6 of those). My answer was pretty easy. I would chose 1 World Series title for the Cubbies, 1 for Da Bears, and 8 National Titles for Notre Dame. This would leave out my Bulls but I honestly don't feel there will ever be another athlete as big as MJ. I wonder if Alabama fans would still claim that they have more national championships than ND. I'm guessing if they never won another one and ND wins 8 more that they would. I'm interested in how my fellow 247 fans and staff would divvy out there future titles.

In my lifetime. 49ers won 5. My Yankees won 6 & ND won 1 in 88. So i'm over my personal limit with 12. 14 if I count my pistons winning 2 & the NY Rangers getting 1. 15 for me in my lifetime. Although from here on out i'll take ND winning 10 MNT's for the rest of my life.
LIShamrock if only I were lucky enough to be a Yankees fan.
Big John I like where your heads at with ND and 10 titles.
12 with teams I grew up with (even though the Bucks didnt come along till 70) - ND/3 (66, 73 & 88), Milwaukee Bucks/1 (71), Milwaukee Braves/1 (57), GB Packers/7 (61, 62, 65, 66, 67, 96, 2010) and my adopted Saints/1 (2009) make lucky 13!!
That being said I want 1 each for the Brewers and Packers and 8 for the Irish.

Fkin A!!! I got 10!!!
But really, ND winning just one more is all I care about...and then ND winning a few more...LOL!
Cheers ND Fans!...VK
ND - 2
Jets - 0
Knicks - 0
Rangers - 1
Yankees - 7
If I had another 10, I'd give the Jets 1, the Knicks 1 and ND 8.
Boise State- 1. They beat the big boys all the time and everyone still hates on them. They get one just because of the Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma. That has to be one of the greatest I've ever seen. So happy I decided to watch the end and not go to bed.

In my lifetime I've only seen two. Both the New York Football Giants which were the two best happiest nights of my life. I've always had the giants ranked slightly ahead of the Irish personally but if we were to win one it would add to another happiest night of my life.
