A Thanksgiving Flashback

Les Nessman Turkeys Away

“It’s a helicopter, and it’s coming this way. It’s flying something behind it, I can’t quite make it out, it’s a large banner and it says, uh – Happy… Thaaaaanksss… giving! … From … W … K … R… P!! No parachutes yet. Can’t be skydivers… I can’t tell just yet what they are, but – Oh my God, Johnny, they’re turkeys!! Johnny, can you get this? Oh, they’re plunging to the earth right in front of our eyes! One just went through the windshield of a parked car! Oh, the humanity! The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! Not since the Hindenburg tragedy has there been anything like this!”

What 70mph wind gusts can do to snow.

For the doubters out there, the Rover Hut held up great, although the wind beating against the door all night, unzipped all the zippers.

Border Battle

The longest running rivalry in NCAA Division 1 football continues today when the Wisconsin Badgers play the Minnesota Golden Gophers. This is the 123rd meeting between the two schools, who first played each other in 1890.

The Badgers come in heavily favored, and rightfully so, they have one of the top B1G teams, but the Gophers have their best team in probably 10 years and there is excitement once again in Minnesota. Plus, it’s rivalry time, and any time these teams play the blood gets pumping. It should be kind of cool out in the stands, with highs in the upper teens, so hopefully it’ll be a hard fought, close contest to keep everyone warm.

It’s the Battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe in Minneapolis.
