FAU Football Weekly - Volume I
The Owls start their journey this Saturday evening in Lincoln, Nebraska home of the Nebraska Husky Corn Guys. It must be the scheduling but we seem to play the schools with the wackiest nicknames. I did some research and they used to be the Nebraska Fat Corn Guys but that was deemed too off putting, they actually have a tribunal in Nebraska that rules on whether things are “off putting” or “on putting.”
Interesting sidebar #2 – Lincoln, Nebraska is one of 4 possible answers to the trivia question – Which four states capitols are names of former US Presidents?
Talk amongst yourselves and when you think you know the answer raise your hand and wait for me to call on you.
The Husky Corn Dudes are ranked #24 in one of the polls, don’t ask me which because there are about 429 different polls out there. According to my bookie…dang, I mean buddy, the Corn Dudes are 22-point favorites over the big bad burly beloved Owls. Memorial Stadium will be rocking with over 85,000 people in attendance because there isn’t a whole lot more to do in Lincoln…I kid, if there are Nebraska fans out their in fau-l land this is all in fun, I’m sure Lincoln is a great place to live (yawn…oops, was that out loud?)
I traded in the Winnebago as a part of the cash for clunkers deal so my crack staff and I will be traveling to Lincoln in a Smart Car! It looks like a clown car from the circus when we unload, it’s complicated but with a series of bungee cords and duck tape (is it duck or duct, I prefer duck, actually I prefer chicken over duck, I digress about ducks) we manage to fit 11 people in and on and around the Smart Car. The model I bought runs on double A batteries, trouble is you have to buy 2,347 batteries and 2,347 battery chargers…more duck tape.
Interesting sidebar #2 – the Nebraska cheerleaders are called the Husky-ettes.
See ya next week for Volume II.
But until then...
Go Owls, fight, win, fly, burrow, bite, scratch, claw, squawk, and generally pester those Husky Corn Guys! Hoot Hoot Hoot Hoot!
