1st Generation vs ..........

If this has already been done I missed it and feel free to delete this thread. I was just wondering after having read a lot of threads on this site the last couple of years I've noticed many people mention that their father or grandfather or some relative liked ND when they were growing up and that's what turned them on to ND (which is awesome I wished I would've had that) but having been born and raised in Alabama all I ever heard about from my father was Bama and how great they are. Then in 93' I guess because of the hype of the upcoming ND vs FSU game for the first time ever I remember seeing ND and something in me just loved them and much to the disappointment of my father I have been a huge ND fan since that point on! (My father gave me hella crap for about the first five yrs then realized it had no impact and is actually pretty cool when it comes to ND these days) Sorry for all the backstory but I felt I needed to sort of explain where I'm coming from. Question is how many of you are first generation ND fans and how many are second, third,.......?

First generation here...well not technically...

My paternal grandfather was an ND and Syracuse fan, but he died before I was old enough to care about football and we never got to bond over any athletics really. My father never did care much for football at all...he loves golf...he pulls for ND now because of me.

2nd generation to my knowledge. Not sure about grandfather because he passed when my Dad was 9. My dad is a fan though.

3rd generation...my first memory that ultimately made me fall in love with Notre Dame was sitting on my grandpa's living room floor watching the snow bowl in 1992 vs Penn State. My dad cursing a storm, stomping his way to the bathroom because he could not watch as ND went for two. I sat there and watched with my grandpa. Mirer to Brooks in the corner. I remember screaming saying we won and my dad coming out on the bathroom wiping sweat from his face just in disbelief and absolutely relieve that we won and he could go to work on Monday and brag to all the PSU fans. Haha sorry for the lengthy response as well but it was a great day!
