An email from a husker fan.
I asked husker fans to tell me their stories and I have received dozens already. I want to post new ones here on a regular basis. I found many of them touching. I will post them as long as they come in. A new one every couple of days. I want to thank everyone for sharing their stories with me and please don’t stop. This film is about what it means to be a cornhusker and thats not an answer that one man can give. It will take a community to answer it. Heres the first email I received: First of all I want to thank you for doing this. Just watching the teaser film made me tear up. I sold Valentinos Pizza at the HUSKERS home games for about five or six seasons. I joined the army and they relocated me to Fort Lewis Washington. I went to the Washington Nebraska game when we played up here and spent over $280 for one ticket. All around me were huskies fans booing and talking all kinds of trash. Yet all I saw the husker fans doing is being kind to them. Nebraska is truly “the good life”. I’ve been stationed in Washington for about four years now, making one deployment to Iraq, and every second of every day I want and long to watch a HUSKERS game!!!!!!!!!!!!! Every time I come back to Lincoln I try to make it to the games but if I can’t I always stop by the stadium. My favorite part is looking at the tunnel and right before the players go on to the field up above it says “I play for Nebraska” those four words mean so much to me and all Nebraska fans. Also above every gate it reads ” through these gates pass the greatest fans in college football” every time I think about Nebraska football I just start welling up. No word in any language can describe what it means to be a Nebraska fan. Getting an opponents president like the northwestern one on the teaser is a fantastic idea. Thank you so much for putting this together!!!!!!!!!!!! Husker football means so much to me and I’m so glad someone is putting something like this together. GO BIG RED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
