The Campaign For DA

You Know Who This Is?


The Ticket just sent this pic out from Radio Row at the Super Bowl in Houston.

That's "Rudy" as in Notre Dame's Rudy.

And you wonder why when we go to class reunions we somehow expect people to look exactly like they did years and years ago.

(Yes, I know that's the actor and not
the real Rudy from back in the day.)

Oh jeez I nearly forgot that today is the day of days for radio in DFW.

January 30, 2009. Gordon Keith of 1310 The Ticket tries and fails miserably in his attempt to bully the great Nestor Aparicio. Todd Keith done got choked out!

That's an assault!
That's a physical assault!

Greatness.

Now, how am I supposed to reckonize him? I didn't even go to Notre Dame!
Wait, what was the question again?

Since most people (I'm guessing) don't know and don't care what the real Rudy looked like back then, it would be hard to pick him out today.
And most people (I'm guessing) don't realistically expect former classmates to look exactly like they did years and years ago. That's why we all wear those stupid nametags.

I grew up in Wise County...I expect the people at class reunions to look like the "after meth" photos on the billboards.

Who is Rudy and why show we care?

I went to school with Rudy and he hasn't changed a bit.

Google him. It's interesting:
2011: "The SEC alleged that Ruettiger used his inspiring story and heroic reputation to trick investors into buying stock in his sports-drink company, a scheme that ultimately produced $11 million in ill-gotten gains for Ruettiger and a dozen other defendants. Ruettiger agreed to pay $382,866 to settle the charges without admitting or denying guilt in the case."

2017: "Rudy Ruettiger, a former Notre Dame Fighting Irish walk-on whose brief career was dramatized by Hollywood, was baptized Saturday into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Yes, Rudy - who attended Joliet Catholic High School - is now a Mormon."

2017: "YES, I CAN! Today, a highly sought after motivational speaker, Rudy entertains international corporate audiences with a unique, passionate, and heartfelt style of communicating. Rudy's opening remarks receive thunderous applause and standing ovations from audiences of 200 to 20,000 people who emotionally chant "RU-DY, RU-DY!"

Just another criminal who seeks the limelight.
