Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

There's a documentary on Netflix about the discovery of his bones, and her reaction is in it.
I felt kind of mean laughing about her being so upset, but it's a totally ridiculous thing to be upset about.

That '08 Northwestern game was the worst game weather I've experienced (I was not at '95 Purdue). I was in the band so we couldn't take shelter, couldn't leave early, and had to perform the post game concert. By the time we got back to Revelli Hall, I couldn't move my fingers to take my soaking wet gloves off so I went into the bathroom, used my wrists to awkwardly manhandle the hot tap on, then stuck my hands (gloves and all) under hot water for a few minutes until I had enough feeling back in my hands to operate my fingers.

I laughed at "After the Nebraska legislature made the bizarre decision to ban Metallica music from the state (the move was so controversial it passed with only one house of the state legislature)". Nice subtle joke about the Unicam.
For the uninitiated, Nebraska's state legislature has only one house.

I was at the 2007 MSU game as well. My clearest memories from that game are Hart picking up Mallett's fumble (and gaining 10 yards and a first down after picking it up!) and the ball slowly bouncing down the field in a near-silent stadium after MSU's last-gasp drive ended in an incomplete pass on fourth down.

8-4. Losses to ND, Northwestern, MSU, and OSU. Rampant speculation about Hoke's job security going into the bowl game and much rending of garments in these parts.

I was in the band when the piped-in music began. There was some talk of doing a show called "A Tribute to Canned Music." The band would march out, make the formation of a can, then pop the lid off and play all of the terrible songs that got played over and over by the stadium DJ (7 Nation Army and the like).
The worry was that AD funding for away trips and bowl games would coincidentally become unavailable, so it never went beyond informal discussions.

While honoring veterans and active-duty servicemen and servicewomen is always welcome, Memorial Day is specifically for those who died while in uniform. Veterans Day (November 11) is our holiday for former members of the US military, and Armed Forces Day (third Saturday of May) is our holiday for those currently serving in the military. Memorial Day and Veterans Day are federal holidays while Armed Forces Day is not, which may be why it is overlooked by many and overshadowed by the other two holidays.

It pains me to say it, but one double-digit win season since 2006 really doesn't justify any preseason hype. I hope they win a ton of games and earn a high ranking by the end of the season, but right now it just seems silly.
