The spring game….the red versus the white with QBs in green. The first half with only shoves with the starters. The second half all out hitting for the youngsters who will be ridin’ the pine most of the season. Scott Frost and his crew doing what they do day in and day out…. 2021…..50% capacity in Memorial stadium which easily holds the NCAA record of most recorded sell outs. After no one allowed in the 2020 season, the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers were ready for some football and ready for a crowd. It was sunny, 85 degrees and super windy. The tradition of letting loose of red balloons after the first points scored backfired as the balloons swirled around the stadium rather than being lifted on high and dive bombed the players on the field. We were masked (or supposed to be) and physically distanced. It was so good to be in the stadium again, even if it was only for the spring scrimmage. Good new, the Huskers won. We also got to see Tim briefly as he was partying with some friends in Lincoln during the game. He is on a short few days vacation from Colorado to see some friends in Lincoln. Here are some photos from the game. Lily came along due to forced family fun outing rules. She is not a big sports fan. She managed to do origami with the hotdog wrapper. We had red hotdogs and Rich had a runza to christen the 2021 Husker football year. Great time had by all!
