TOUCHDOWN JESUS South Bend, Indiana

Expedition Team: Dave Miller, Rick Washnock

Date: July 1999

I drove up to the University of Notre Dame campus where my fraternity brother Rick was working nearby for a couple of months. We visited South Bend’s most famous Roadside Attraction – the famed 134-foot-high mosaic called “Word of Life” depicting Jesus with his arms uplifted. Since it is visible from the Football Stadium, fans have nicknamed the mosaic “Touchdown Jesus”. I also visited the Golden Dome of ND, the old ND chapel and played the university golf course.
