Anytime PJ Fleck’s name comes up the theme song to PJ Masks pops in my head. Only, the word masks is replaced with Fleck.

I have kids so the PJ Masks show is something that has come across my radar once or twice in my life.

It’s not fun or enjoyable. Neither is losing to Minnesota.

Nebraska, please beat Minnesota.
