As most are aware, I like to take scenes from movies and tweak them a bit. Here was my last one for Spaceballs. Anyway, I promised I would have a special one ready for the first game of the season. We are a little over 24 hours until kickoff and I wanted to post this at 6 am tomorrow morning, but I have much chorin' to do in the morning before the game. So, posting this now. It is a take on the first broadcast by Robin Williams' character Adrian Cronauer in Good Morning Vietnam. Here is a link to the clip on YouTube.
Gooood Morning Nebrrraskaaaa!!!
Hey this is not a test, this is rock and roll. Time to rock it from Scotts Bluff to Wahoo. Is that me or does that sound like a Blur Song. "Wahoo. Wahoo. Got my head checked. For being a Husker. Wasn’t easy." Hey is it too early for being that loud? Hey! Too late. It is oh six hundred, what’s the O stand for? Oh my God it is a Husker football day!!!
Speaking of early, how about that Cro-Magnon Jon Johnston? Thank you Jon for "silk smooth sound", make me sound like Lyell Bremser.
Rock n Roll! Warrrahwahhr... The wronnng spreeed. Weee’ve got it on the wrong speed. For those of you who are recovering from a Husker 2020 hangover that's going to sound just right. Let's put it right back down again. Let's try it a little bit faster, see if that picks it up a little bit. Let’s get it up on 78. Nerebergerebrrr... those Buckeyes are going Ireallylikewinning-Ireallylikewinning-lreallylikewinning. Oh it’s still a bad song.
Hey, wait a minute. Let’s try something. Let’s play it backwards and see if it gets any better. Vovehsnyeveh. Steve Pederson-is-the-devil. Vovehsnyeveh. Steve Pederson-is-the-devil. (Gasps!) Uh! Na na na na Na na na na Na na na na. Picture a man going on a journey beyond sight and sound. He's left Crete, Nebraska. He’s entered… the Husker Zone. Aaaaah! De de la, de de la boom.
All right! Hey, what is this Husker Zone? What do they mean Play Action? Sounds like a couple of cops in Omaha going "Uh, she looks pretty to me". Hey, whatever it is I like it because it gets you on your toes better than a strong cup of Red Beer.
What is a Husker Zone? Sounds like something out of The Wizard of Oz. Ohhh nooo! Don’t go in there! (Sings) Oh Hey Ho Omaha. Ohhh look! You’ve landed in Lincoln. You’re among the corn people now. (Sings) We represent the Hawkeye Army, the Hawkeye Army. Oh no! Follow Interstate 80! Follow Interstate 80! Oh I’ll get you my pretty! Oh my God it’s the Wicked Witch of the East! Its Kirk Ferentz! Now little Husker. You and your lil Red too! Ah-hahahahahaha.
Let’s go to the phones.
Hey, uh, hi, can you help me? What's your name?
My name’s Roosevelt Lee Roosevelt.
Roosevelt, what town are you stationed in?
I’m stationed in Yutan.
Well that you, Roosevelt. What’s the weather like out there?
It’s hot! Damn hot! Real hot! Hot as it is, is my shorts I can cook things in it, a little crotch-pot cookin’.
Well can you tell me what it feels like?
Fool! Why it’s hot I told you again. Were you born on the sun? It's damn hot! I said it’s so damn hot I saw these little corn cobs burst into popcorn, it’s that hot, you know what I'm talking about?
What do you think its going to be like tonight?
It’s going to be hot and wet. That’s nice if you’re with a lady, but it ain’t no good if you're in Memorial Stadium.
Thank you Roosevelt. Here's a song coming your way right now. The Cornhusker by the Killigans. Yes! Hey, you know what I mean!
(looks at Redvalley) Whew! Too much?
GO BIG RED!!!
