    Very important lesson learned... NEVER pass up the opportunity to acquire a bottle of Templeton Rye... NEVER.

    Disgusting the disdain the Rag has for ISU.

    I've always that skydiving would be a good way to go.

    Listening to ISU beat Nebraska, surrounded by friends and family sound a lot better. Great story.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Father's Final Hours Spent Cheering Cyclones

    I agree. That's a great story and something that the family can treasure forever.

    The Register followed it up today with a husker's favorite memory being the '97 game where Nebraska could have named the score against a ridiculously overwhelmed ISU team. He made his wife and her friends, all ISU fans, sit through the majority of the game which Neb ended up winning 77-14. It didn't quite have the same touching, family feel that the original did. Odd.

    Why would the Register care about a Husker fan's favorite memory?

    I'm sure I will get the same tired response "Well, there are a lot of Nebraska fans living in the state."

    My father in-law attended the Colorado 'tornado' game with me...and died soon after. I miss him very much..and that memory is priceless.


    I still carry his watch to games and rub it for good luck.
