'79 Cotton Bowl mug
|This is an interesting souvenir from one of Notre Dame's greatest comebacks ever. Who could forget Joe Montana and the famous "Chicken Soup" game at the 1979 Cotton Bowl versus Houston. (Joe spent halftime and part of the third quarter in the locker room shivering with the flu and sipping chicken soup.) He came back and with the score 34-12 and 7:37 left on the clock, led the Irish to a stunning 35-34 victory.
The temperature was near freezing and needless to say, the Cotton Bowl concessioners didn't sell much cold beer that day. I purchased these mugs from the original Cotton Bowl vendor in Dallas. They come in two colors, Irish green and Cougar red.
