Huskers for Heroes: How Much Is A Husker Fan Worth?

II mentioned it earlier today, but clearly Husker fans aren't thrilled with the Holiday Bowl matchup with Washington. So unimpressed are we that a few thousand tickets remain unsold. The athletic department doesn't want to get stuck with the cost, since they're liable for the tickets whether they're sold or not, so they've come up with the "Huskers for Heroes" campaign so that Husker fans can donate tickets to a worthy cause: 

All tickets purchased for this program will be donated to active duty San Diego-area sailors and Marines who want to go to the game and support the Huskers. Fans who purchase tickets during the Holiday Bowl Blitz from 8 a.m. Monday, Dec. 20, until 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 21, for the Huskers for Heroes program will qualify for all the Blitz special offers listed below.    

Randy York follows up with a great set of stories about why you should be supporting the program, which is to support men and women who have made the choice of serving their country. It's an honorable cause - and I'm going to give you one more perspective regarding why you should support this program. 

I want you to think about what made you a Husker fan. If you weren't born and raised in Nebraska, something happened somewhere along the line. Maybe you saw a great game on TV, or you heard a story about a Husker player that you found inspiring (perhaps Randy York's story, above). 

Or maybe someone took you to a Husker game. 

It costs $60 to donate a ticket to an active duty sailor or marine in the San Diego area. If you think about it, that's not much of an investment to create a new Husker fan. If you're wondering what you can do to create more peace and harmony in the world - hey, what if they all were Husker fans. Then we'll all get along fine, wouldn't we?
