Go Big Red! Lincoln collector opens Husker football gallery

Nebraska Cornhusker fans love their football. They love everything about the Husker program. I remember a time when once someone found out you had tickets to a home game, they held you in awe. Kids grew up wanting to be a Husker. The state basically shut down during a home game, especially back in the […]

Football exhibit examines the science and technology used in the game at Ashland’s Strategic Air and Space Museum

Ever wonder why your favorite quarterback is critiqued for “throwing off his back foot?” Or, maybe wonder if it’s more than timing that helps the receiver catch the football 50 yards downfield? Football players have to be smart at their game. They need to understand the mathematics and science in executing the game plan for […]

Pro Football Hall of Fame great way to kick off NFL season

It’s officially football season! OK, it’s actually preseason football time, but it’s football, nevertheless. I live for this time of the year. Preseason practice news is big with me. I live for this stuff. So, when I found out the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers were kicking off the 2015 season in the Hall of […]

Pro football returned to Omaha in 2014, but will it be back?

Professional football returned to Omaha in 2014 with mixed results. The on-field product was excellent. The Omaha Mammoths’ players performed well. They displayed professionalism and showed why a lot of these guys could play in the National Football League. Jordan Jefferson displayed a decent arm and foot speed. The LSU product appears good enough to […]

Trey Barrow kicked a 46-yard field goal as time expired, after the Boston Brawlers had taken a late 8-7 lead at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha. The Mammoths […]

Skol Vikings; Minnesota bids farewell to Metrodome

I’ve been a Minnesota Vikings fan since 1970. It was the year my mom married my dad (officially step) and we moved to Oakland, Nebraska.  The old high school was called the Vikings, but they became the Knights when Oakland and Craig merged to form one school district. Anyway, I remember liking the Minnesota Vikings […]

More than the game; Taking in Cornhusker history at Memorial Stadium

The Nebraska Cornhuskers close out the regular season today with a home game against the Iowa Hawkeyes. Both teams have a couple of major successes to fight for. Iowa could win 8 games this season, doubling their win total from 2012. In addition, they could get a New Year’s Day bowl, such as the Outback […]

Vikings stop tops sports visits

When traveling, I like to at least see the outside of stadiums of pro and college teams. Our recent vacation gave me the opportunity to take a look a few teams’ stadiums and headquarters. Our first visit was to the campus of the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Camp Randall Stadium fills up every fall […]
