Sources tell me that Notre Dame’s National Championship shirts have arrived in the African Congo today.

See those shirts members of the Alabama Crimson Tide are wearing over their shoulder pads in the picture above? Those are their official BCS National Championship t-shirts, and they were ready and waiting following the Tide’s 42-14 bludgeoning of Notre Dame.
However, the good folks over at Nike could not have known the game was going to be such a one-sided affair, or that Bama would even win in the first place.
The company obviously had “Notre Dame National Championship” t-shirts printed, boxed and shipped to Miami should the title game have gone in the favor of the Golden Domers.
If you have ever wondered what happens to the gear of the losing team, now you know. The gear was donated to the war-torn Congo in Africa’s heartland — where hardly anyone knows that Notre Dame got schooled in the ancient art of football by a dynasty.
In fact, those Africans who receive the t-shirts will actually think Notre Dame won the whole thing in 2012-13 — and that’s something, right?
Well, no, it’s not. Sorry Domers.
