And while one Cardinal fan found it the ideal spot to stock up on beer and ice, the supermarket was not overlooking the rewards of catering to Notre Dame’s loyal fanbase by having gold (ok, yellow but it’s the thought that counts) and blue balloons. (No, the Fighting Irish color is not green as many people assume, but that color has been worn on a number of occasions. according the the university’s athletic site .)
