May I Have Your Attention Please...
Wit and Wisdom from the N.D. Pressbox
Mike Collins and Sgt. Tim McCarthy
Foreword by Tom Hammond and Pat Haden, NBC Sports
For nearly five decades, near the end of the third quarter at every Notre Dame home football game, the crowd grows quiet to hear, of all things, a safety announcement. That's because it comes in the form of a clever play on words that makes the message one to remember.
Now longtime P.A. announcer Mike Collins and Sgt. McCarthy offer behind the scenes stories, tales and details of their work high atop Notre Dame Stadium. Well-known former South Bend TV news anchor Mike Collins recalls his first game as public address announcer in 1982, the research and practice he has to do before daring to pronounce names such as Tui Alailefaleula over the stadium loud speaker. Collins selects the N.D. games he ranks the best as well as some of people and places that make Notre Dame and South Bend special.
Sergeant McCarthy of the Indiana State Police (Ret.) recounts how he began pepping up the safety announcement so as to capture and hold the attention of 80,000 people. His stories in this book are punctuated with his own choice of the best of his safety quips.
This book will inform and delight Notre Dame fans and visitors.
