the spring game tradition grows

One of our family traditions is the annual trek west to Lincoln for the Huskers Spring Game. While most schools have a few hundred people show up to their spring game, Nebraska sells out the stadium, we all wear our Husker Red, and the whole day is treated like it's a fall game.




Like any good fan, we kicked off our morning at Sandy's with some Elk Creek - it's like a Long-Island Iced Tea, but with with orange juice and some fizzy added. Once we're good and morning-tipsy, it's time to head off to the stadium.



Just like at a fall game, when the first points are scored we all release balloons - it's all very non-friendly to the environment, but I take extra care to pick up trash and recycle the rest of the year to make up for it.

We tend to only last until just after halftime, when we head back downtown to designate a driver, the rest of us drink some more, and then we head back to Omaha.

Always a good time! Bonus? It looks like we've got a good team again this year, Ndamukong Suh showed up and got a standing ovation when he shared his desire to donate MILLIONS of dollars to the university for scholarship funds, and there's only 139 days until the first fall game!

GO BIG RED!
