The Huskers got beat by Purdue and they are now 0-4 since.....ever.

But let’s push aside that fact. Yes, lets shake off the doldrums that we all went through this weekend and focus on what really mattered on Saturday.

Yes, American icon Bill Murray stopped by 1 Memorial for the game. While it wasn’t the game any of us were wanting it gave him the opportunity to tour and meet all that is Husker fandom. Brendan Stai was gracious to take a few pics and post them on his twitter account. My personal favorite is the one of him talking to Doctor Tom. He looks like he genuinely cares and is interested in what the old ball coach has to say.

Bill Murray is a sports fan so this doesn’t terribly surprise me. The guy roots for every Chicago team and plays in every golf outing he can. However, they could have kept this internal so it was nice to see some pics of him enjoying his time in Lincoln.

With that, let’s take our mind of things for awhile. After you read flakes, please list your favorite Bill Murray film in the comments and and feel free to discuss the wonders of his craft.

Me? My favorite would be “The Razors Edge”.

Anyway, on to flakes...
