For a good time, call Eva Bright ...

I don't even know what to make of this story. It appears that famous Notre Dame altar boy George Gipp did NOT father a child out of wedlock in the months prior to his tragic death, disproving the slanderous gossip of generations of Notre Dame haters who have claimed that the Gipper led a dissolute lifestyle. It appears instead that Eva Bright, the Gipper's former girlfriend, two-timed on our intrepid hero and then spread the scandalous allegation that Gipp was the father of her child. Will Eva Bright's REAL baby-daddy please step forward?

Let this be a lesson to Notre Dame men everywhere: Stick with the St. Mary's girls!

How sad for the Gipper's girl friend to have been pregnant in a time when she would have been ostracized. Back then there was no paternity testing, so the girl could not have been sure if she had sexual involvement with 2 men. Maybe she was raped and wanted to keep that quiet since women were treated as they were at fault for that too! The gipper knew she was pregnant I am sure, so why didn't he assume the child to be born was his? Maybe he didn't have a sexual relationship with her. There are lots of unansered questions.

I've never seen that painting of Gipp. Is it on campus somewhere (I'm an ND grad, never saw it if it was). If not, where is it? The real life of George Gipp would be a great movie.

Anonymous #3: I did a google image search and this picture of the Gipp popped up. It was actually on ebay.com, and I have no idea where it comes from. It could be a very recent oil done from a photo, or it could be more original than that. Unfortunately the ebay listing had no provenance information.
