I had an interview with Tim O’Connor, executive director of Catholic Charities, this afternoon and he told me that he and several members of his staff and a board member visited Notre Dame this week for a workshop. He said he wore blue and gold, Notre Dame’s colors, as he told other workshop participants about Catholic Charities’ work in Oklahoma.
O’Connor said at the end of his talk, he took off his gold sweater with a flourish … to reveal an OU jersey.
He said he just had to reveal that crimson and cream after all.
The crowd loved that … a jolt of humor about what everyone is talking about these days any way… the BIG game.
Actually, O’Connor said he has many reasons to root for both schools. He said he has always had great respect for Notre Dame. He said a few years ago, the university presented him with an award for his community service in Oklahoma City.
“You love ‘em both,” he said, chuckling.
