The Husker Calendar

April 12th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Tonight Karen and I attended birthing class.  As a part of the class, the instructor asked each couple to share the expcrience they had when they found out about their pregnancy.   Anywhere else in America, time is referenced by seasons, months and days on a calendar.  Not so in Nebraska.   “We found out the week of the Texas game,” said one couple.  And everyone in the room immediately remembered the week of the Texas game.

This reminded me of an office meeting at the Attorney General’s office at the end of last summer.  Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning was giving a bit of a pep talk to the office and said something to the effect of, “[The Attorney General’s Office has] had a great summer and now that summer is over, we’ll have a great football season.”

Winter. Spring. Summer. Football.

I’m going to miss Nebraska.

    It’s amazing how when you run in to a Nebraska fan, you immediately feel a kinship with them. And they aren’t snobby like some fans. They really are the best. I chatted with a guy in a N hat at McDonald’s for about 20 minutes. Just long enough for Sara to climb up in the Playland and freak out cause she couldn’t figure out how to get down, so I got to go up and get her. Disgusting!
