On going to a Husker game

October 10, 2010

I already wrote about going to my first Husker game. (You can read it here, if you’ve not already read it.)

There’s a lot to the experience that you miss when you watch a game on TV: the sheer size of the crowd, the reactions of rabid fans, the marching band before the game and at halftime. (Though it is a bit easier to follow the action of the game on TV.)

Here are some photos from my Husker game experience.

Pre-game marching band.

Hoopla as the team prepared to come out on the field. At football games, Nebraska is apparently spelled with two “N”s.

The team’s tunnel walk, as seen on the jumbotron.

We had pretty good seats!

TOUCHDOWN, HUSKERS!

DEEEEFENSE! COME ON!! LET’S GO!!! GET ‘EM!!!! WOOOOOOOOO!!!

The band waiting on the sideline for the halftime performance.

The marching band put down their instruments and shook their booties to, I think, Beyonce?

The Huskers won, of course.

    You’re very lucky to get to go! My dad always jokes that during home games at UNL, the stadium becomes the 3rd largest city in Nebraska!

      Third largest city, eh? I think that’s just about right!
