  1. I think I'm going to have to try some of this.

      Well yeah. I'll have to get my daughter to pick some up for me.

      I’m not too thrilled that it’s going to be a common lager, probably along the lines of Bud, Coors, Miller etc. But even if it’s not the best beer, I will save and reuse the bottles for some of my home brew. Can’t think of anything better than serving my own beer in Dear Old Nebraska Brew bottles during Nebraska football games. The trick will be washing and sanitizing the bottles without damaging the labels.

      UNL should allow alcohol in the stadium but only if it's made in Nebraska.

  2. Today is the five-year anniversary of Prince's death. Rest in peace, man.

      I've read articles about the great guitar players in rock music,  Prince is sometimes mentioned but never to high, thing is the guy played damn near every instrument in his music,  if he would have stayed with just a guitar I think he's looked alot differently,  not that it matters to me Prince was a genius

      He was an artist that I liked his music when I was young.  But, never really understood what a great talent he really was till close to his death.

      A long time ago there was a bowling alley under the student union on main campus.  I never bowled there, but I remember seeing it.

      Tell me again why we fired him?  

    2. BigRedBuster

      BigRedBuster

       Wish him all the best.  He's a great guy that I hope has big success somewhere even though it didn't work out here.  @NUance it was time for a change.  Our record since hasn't been good.  But, I think it is headed in the right direction with a good coach.

      I'm also happy for Sammy.  I'm sure he will enjoy the weather there.

  5. One year ago today the Covid pandemic started to really hit home for most Americans. Travel bans, school closings, the end of sports... just everything we've known gone in a few days. I got Covid in January and still can't smell, and can barely taste. Otherwise, the year has been boring, but not too awful. Just very different. I hated the football "season" we had, and volleyball in spring seems weird. 

     

    How has the past year treated you? Everyone getting through this OK?

      Yes we did/do count it as a flu

      death if you have the flu and die from complications, but it's complicated because many people don't get ill and seek treatment as soon as they would with COVID so they no longer test positive.

      Quote

      What are seasonal influenza-related deaths?

      Seasonal influenza-related deaths are deaths that occur in people for whom influenza infection was likely a contributor to the cause of death, but not necessarily the primary cause of death.

       

       

      I don't understand the point of this skepticism. You just said it's extremely deadly. COVID causes a number of complications that ultimately lead to death, and comorbidities contribute to the severity of the disease as well. People with COVID can develop a multitude of complications from pneumonia, blood clots, renial issues, heart problems, organ failure, etc. Those all count as COVID deaths.

       

      Let's say the number were exaggerated by 4 times. That's still almost double the average deaths in a normal flu season.

      I threw a ton of money in the stock market when everything was down a year ago.  So it's actually been a pretty good year for me financially.   Which is actually kind of hard to be proud about with so many people struggling. 

    4. ZRod

      @The Dude wish I would have thrown more in.

      You'll know Spring is around the corner, when the Robins start showing up.

       

      GBR!!!

  7. I've never really paid attention to Tom Brady. AFC guy, nothing to do with the NFC North, good but kind of "whatever."

     

    But as a totally disinterested football fan, I have to admit that dude is an all-time legend, and perhaps the best QB in NFL history.

     

    Really hard to argue against that, no matter how you feel about him.

      Creamsicles are an amazing uniform. Huge Vikings fan, but I do own a creamsicle Bucs hat.

    3. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      The creamsicles were classic but I love the pewter color too. They should mix the orange and pewter....along with the old buccaneer logo.

      You could argue Montana wasn't even the best player on his teams.  Brady pretty much always was.

  8. Going on four weeks post Covid. Still can't smell anything. I can taste savory things, salty things & sweet things. But the combinations are still out of whack. My default mouth sense is sweet.

     

    Air is sweet, water is sweet, post-brushing is sweet.

     

    I hate it.

      Took me about 6 weeks to get my sense of taste or smell to start to come back, still not where it was. I had covid in early December 

    3. B.B. Hemingway

      B.B. Hemingway

      Our household is around 3-4 months out from it. My wife can smell things if it's up close now, and has finally started to get some of her taste back after months without any sign of it. It gets better, hang in there. :thumbs

    4. default_28

      default_28

      It’s taken four months for my wife’s smell to come back, but now it’s like she’s smelling things for the first time. 
       

      Everything smells so good to her. 
       

      So you have childlike wonderment to

      look forward to possibly.

  10. Man. Patrick Mahomes was a terrible college pitcher.

     

     

    1. BigRedBuster

      BigRedBuster

      He gave up zero hits.  So, I assume he came in with the bases loaded.  He walked two and hit another batter.

       

      Was he actually a position player normally and got thrown in as a relief pitcher?

    2. JJ Husker

      Hopefully that football thing works out for him.

  11. First scoop of the day done. Snow is still pretty light, but there's a lot of it. Cheers to whichever neighbor did my sidewalk with their snowblower!

      Live on an emergency snow route, also leading to a school, and yesterday/today is the worst the street has ever been.  The "subbed out" private contractors removing snow to assist the city has left it questionably passable

    3. knapplc

      The compacted snow the plows dumped in my driveway was harder to scoop than anything before it. And I had dug out my mailbox, but they buried it again with heavier, crustier snow. So scooping AGAIN last night was a bear. And I'm sore today.

      It hurts knapp, because we aren't the young bucks of the Huskerboard get togethers at Brewsky's/tailgating anymore.  We are a couple of the few OGs that are still here for some reason

      They are the best team to try to beat Alabama.  OSU's offense is just nuts.  Hopefully their defense can slow down Alabama enough to win.

      It's not bad, it's not great either.  Kinda resembles a canary melon.  I tried it once after trying kimchee, both stink.  I still eat kimchee, not worth fighting the smell of durian it is over powering in my opinion and simply not worth it.

      Jeff didn't hire him to keep him...Jeff hired him to fire him.  This is a d!(k move.  My guess, is that Jeff, at the very least, made sure Bob had a two year contract and apologize to him to on the way out.

      They are better than what they used to be on my phone.  However, it might be because for some reason, my phone got switched to the non-mobile site and I can't figure out how to switch it back.  

       

      Did they do away with the mobile site all together?  I haven't complained about it because the mobile site sucked so bad.

      We have the height and skill to finish at the rim but also have numerous players who can hit threes. Both were weaknesses of last years team. I also like the defensive length.
