Okay, so it’s not specifically for old people by old people, but Todd and I get together for a special edition of a video/podcast to talk about our memories of Nebraska - Oklahoma games over the years.

This isn’t a break down of game action. You can get that anywhere. We talk about what we did, our memories of going to the games, including Joyce and the Sidetrack Tavern, the 2nd Game of the Century that everyone forgets in 1987.

I tell my 1982 near death experience story again.

The 1982 Nebraska - Oklahoma game was a win for Nebraska and nearly a death for me.

Jon has a book out!

On August 21st, 2015, Jon unexpectedly dropped dead of a widowmaker heart attack. He was shocked five times on the way to the hospital with no response. He was shocked two more times in the ER. He was dead for over 20 minutes. A stent was placed, and he was induced into a coma. In January 2016 Jon received a second stent and in June he was diagnosed with an anoxic brain injury.

He wrote a book about death and recovery. The title, “Been Dead, Never Been To Europe” reflects the ironic nature of life, what happens versus what we want to happen. It’s available at Amazon in Kindle and Paperback.

Consider signing up for Jon’s Postlife Crisis newsletter, which is about Jon and interests beyond Cornhuskers sports. (I know, right?)
