South Bend billboard takes $2,000 pot-shot at Weis
Do you have an extra two-grand lining your pockets and want to get off a cheap shot at the head football coach of Notre Dame?
Too bad, because somebody beat you to it.
A well-directed smart bomb was heaved toward coach Charlie Weis, and it’s created quite a controversy. A billboard placed strategically above the Linebacker Inn* had this to say to coach Weis:
Burkhart Advertising, the owner of the billboard wouldn’t divulge any information on the purchaser of the ad space, but a cursory look at their website reveals that it costs a little bit more than $2,000 for a four-week rental.
Now, the fine people of the Linebacker are doing their best back-pedal, trying to distance themselves from the lightning rod that has their name on it.
“Well, it’s just as much of a surprise to us as it was to everyone else,” Greg Delinski, GM of the ‘Backer told the South Bend Tribune.
Nothing like a little old-fashioned tom-foolery to get the football season started.
*I was confused with the whole “Linebacker Inn” talk. I was expecting a bed & breakfast or something, until I realized it was The ‘Backer.
