Questions and a Victory March for the Notre Dame Football Pez
of page | cover page
the end of the day, we're all on the same Pez team. And I know
that my Pez brothers and sisters can relate to Notre Dame's woes,
because it was just a few years ago when new Pez was few and far
between. Those were lean years, but now new Pez is being released
at a staggering pace. Hopefully my football team can pick up the
pace in the next year or two as well.
snap! Notre Dame Football Pez tackles the tough issues
of the day.
Monthly: Notre Dame Football Pez, thanks
very much for joining us. You are one of the newest dispensers
in the growing NCAA Football set, which includes such
other teams as Texas, Florida, Michigan, and Ohio State.
Has it sunk in yet that you are now part of the grand
Dame Football Pez: A little more every
day. I know that Pez has been around for some 80 years
now, including more than 50 years in America. That's a
lot of history to be proud of there. And of course, Notre
Dame Fighting Irish football has been around even longer
than that. It is humbling to not only be preceded by Pez
legends like Casper, Mickey Mouse, and Make-A-Face, but
also by Notre Dame legends like Knute Rockne, Lou Holtz,
and Joe Montana. I can only hope to have half the class
that they did.
true that is. Now, fast-forwarding to the present, and
with a sincere attempt to be delicate about this, it's
clear that the 2007 won't exactly go down in history as
Notre Dame football's greatest year. How are you handling
Well, it's a little hard when you watch
your team hurting so much week after week. And the occasional
taunts by Ohio State Football Pez don't help, either,
I certainly hope so, Notre Dame Football Pez, I certainly hope
so. Do you see any other parallels between Notre Dame football
Well for one, both have their devoted fans. People
will travel all around the country to watch Notre Dame get their
game on. Likewise, Pezheads can go from coast to coast and then
back throughout the year to the various Pez
conventions. Plus, when Notre Dame scores, their fans go
nuts, much like when Pezheads find a new score. I could go on
and on. You see, ND fans and Pezheads are more alike then you
suppose you've got a point there. Now it bears mentioning that
you are not as widely available as many other current Pez dispensers.
Does that ever make you jealous of them?
Not at all, no. As with other NCAA Football Pez,
I'm pretty much only available in locations near the campus
of my namesake. And, of course, on eBay and at Pez conventions.
But you know, my feeling is that if people are that eager to
add me to their collection, or maybe to give me as a unique
gift for a loved one, then it just makes it that much more special
when they find me.
a quite charming way of looking at it, Notre Dame Football Pez.
Lastly, in your brief time as a part of your collector's
collection, have there been any awkward moments for
Well a few days ago, I noticed something off
in the distance. It was so beautiful, so marvelous, that it
darn near brought a tear to me eye, and I think it would have,
if I had tear ducts, or eyes for that matter. It was that famed
gold dome of the Notre Dame campus, the one so often photographed,
and the one that is the inspiration for the gold painted helmets
of the Notre Dame football team. But then I got a closer look
and it was actually the head of C3PO Pez. He noticed me staring
at him, gave me a weird look, and that was pretty much that.
that is a little awkward. I feel your pain, Notre Dame Football
Pez, both for the 2007 football season woes, and that little
faux pas with C3PO Pez. That being said, perhaps this re-imagined
Victory March will send you off in good spirits.

Cheer for Notre Dame Pez
Tilt back its head and watch it dispense
Fruity goodness nice and quick,
All in the shape of a candy brick.
What though the crowd be great or small,
Notre Dame Pez will dispense for all,
While the loyal Pezheads will be
Putting it on the shelf.
NDFP: Thanks so much.
I am now ready to go out and Play Like A Champion Today. Or,
at least dispense like one.
