Overview

Here is your chance to go inside the huddle of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, into their locker room and onto the sidelines, your chance to join your favorite players on the team plane, and at the team hotel. Go behind the scenes and peek into the private world of the players, coaches and decision makers, eavesdropping on their personal conversations. You'll read about how, after Ara Parseghian won the national championship and his fans seemed to think he could do anything, they chanted at a wintry home game in November, "Ara, stop the snow!" Ara's sardonic reply to an aide: "Do you think I should?" And about the legendary Irish lineman Ziggie Czarobski who always showered before practice, and when asked by Coach Frank Leahy why he did, replied, "Because it's too crowded in there afterwards." You'll have a front row seat for the times when the memories were made and hear some of the great stories from the history of Notre Dame football. Then Ara Said to Joe is the book written for every sports fan that follows the Fighting Irish. Don't be left out of the loop. Get the first hand accounts from true team insiders. No more rumors or second hand "he said, she said". Relive the highlights. Be there for the celebrations. Find out just how it really happened in Then Ara Said to Joe.
