Purdue – According to police reports, the sister of Notre Dame starting quarterback Tommy Rees was arrested on charges of public intoxication at Purdue over the weekend. Meghan Rees, a 21-year-old student at Miami University of Ohio, was cited at Ross-Ade stadium at 8:38 p.m. Her younger brother, Tommy, was on the field leading the Fighting Irish to a 38-10 win over Purdue. Purdue Police Captain Eric Chin said at around 8:30 p.m. officers received a report of a fight occurring in section 116 of the stadium. When the officers responded to the report, fans pointed to Rees as the one causing the disturbance.
I’ll grant you that the Irish got off to a rocky start this year and things looked grim. But they’ve won three straight since. And do you need any more proof that they’re restoring their former glory… that they’re playing for keeps now and the kidding around is pretty much over… than evidenced by my girl Meghan here? That’s how you rebuild a dynasty. Get drunk in a hostile environment and take on all comers. That’s Playing Like a Champion. That’s putting the Fighting back in Fighting Irish. We’ve come a long way from the days of Brady Quinn’s skanky sister with her divided loyalties, pretending to root for the Irish while he was doing The Beast With Two Backs with AJ Hawk. Literally sleeping with the enemy. Now we’ve got the quarterback’s hot sister slapping bitches around just like back in the days of Angelo Bertelli and Johnny Lujack. It’s heartwarming, really. @JerryThornton1
