Merry Christmas from the ND blog

Merry Christmas from the Notre Dame blog!

We know -- it still feels like it's two weeks away. Until then, here's hoping your holiday is spent with family and friends. And for those who asked Santa for title-game tickets ... well, here's hoping those wishes came true, too, though sources say he's been pretty busy with similar requests throughout the past month.

We'll be taking a break today before getting back in the swing of things tomorrow. For now, enjoy the day off, eat well and watch plenty of quality television.
