Notre Dame fans showed up to the season opener against Temple at Notre Dame Stadium last week to find their stadium concession stands selling souvenir cups featuring a misspelling, turning Fighting Irish into 'Fig Thing' Irish.
Now Fighting Irish fan Dillon Murphy and his family have made T-shirts poking fun at that mistake borrowing from a Saturday Night Live skit and plan to wear the shirts to this week's game at Michigan.
Apparently the shirts are quite popular with other Fighting Irish fans.
@ND_Freek yo, trying to find a printer that can handle all of the requests. There has been a lot of requests and we just used a local shop
