I prefer No'er Dame myself

from Gregg Easterbrook's Tuesday Morning Quarterback...

Mike Byrnes of Las Vegas complained that many sportscasters say "Note-RA Dame" trying to sound sophisticated, though the correct French would be "Note-RA Daum" and anyway the Indiana-ized "Note-Er Dame" at this point is more authentic. TMQ will avoid all such pitfalls by calling the school Our Lady. And why does an Irish college have a French name, anyway -- shouldn't the name be Gaelic?
