The Best Thing I’ve Ever Slept On…

Karen Neuburger Bamboo Sheets…like heaven on your bed. No really, it is.

My mom had these on her and dad’s bed when I was home at Christmas and I used on of her pillows when I was sick,  it was so soft! I got a set for Christmas – my mom is just good about gift giving like that! And another for Valentine’s Day.

I’m not sure if she got them for me because she liked them so much or because she is encouraging me to wash my sheets more – because with these sheets, the more you wash, the softer they are…

Living in Hostile (and New) Big Ten Country, Part 2

Nebraska fans are nice people. Some of the nicest you will find around the college football landscape. They say they clap for the other team after the game, they talk with other fans tailgating (not taunting or harassing…just talking), they say they don’t hate anyone (except Colorado…a little bit)…

I don’t know if they know just what will be waiting on them in Madison, WI when they go on the road to play their first league game as a member of the Big Ten Conference. I’ve never been to a game in Madison, but it doesn’t seem like too welcoming of a place on tv. Especially if you get down 21-0…but then again, there are not many places that are friendly to you then!

Not only Madison, but as they make their stops over the course of the first two years of their Big Ten schedule, it could be an eye-opening experience. But we need a nice team in the Big Ten, we already have the smart kids of Northwestern holding down that role.

I’m not saying fans in the Big Ten are viscous but it will be a new experience for everyone in Nebraska, because in the Big Ten, we do hate teams and other schools, some of them, A LOT!
