Joe Theismann, Notre Dame: I remember that day like it was yesterday, I remember anticipating that I would be a higher round draft pick and I sat in [Notre Dame SID] Roger Valdiserri's office and waited to hear. The first round went by and O.K., I understood when I saw those guys go 1-2-3. Then I figured maybe somebody would take me in the second round, and the second round goes by. Then the third round is going by, and about mid-way through the third round I got up and said, look, if somebody calls me, I'm going down to play basketball, just come get me. I just got up and left his office and went downstairs and starting playing basketball.
