I trust y'all had a wonderful July 4th weekend and that you're all intact - no missing fingers.
I did not explode anything, nor did I purchase a single firework. I've mentioned how boring fireworks are in Minnesota already.
I also did not grill a single thing. I am not that great a cook.
I also (believe it or not) did not drink massive quantities of alcohol. I did have some, but not so much as to be reckless.
And on Saturday, Mrs CN and I went 20 miles on our bicycles. That was the first time in a long time I'd been on a bicycle and I'm not really all that sore.
With all this, you'd swear I wasn't even an American. Wow, huh?
Nebraska has not challenged for a national championship in over a decade, but its fans base is still by far the most loyal in the country. The Cornhuskers have sold out a 91,000-seat stadium 333 straight times – an absurd number – dating back to 1962. Nebraska fans don’t take a Saturday off – even if the team is playing on the road.
Well.. we didn't actually sell out a 91,000 seat stadium 333 straight times because the stadium wasn't that big throughout all those years, but the sell out streak is still pretty damned impressive no matter how you look at it.
