Last night Erik called at 4:15 to share some AMAZING news!!! As I reported yesterday, the Cornhusker Marching Band was unable to get out of Lincoln with the storm. We knew that the kids would be practicing Hail Varsity to play during the game.... BUT..... yesterday afternoon the band director and then the band met with the president of the Holiday Bowl and were asked to perform in place of the UNL band. They will be getting all the VIP placement including playing for the pep rally before the game, sitting in the UNL band section during the game, playing March of the Cornhuskers, Hail Varsity and There is No Place Like Nebraska during the game and getting bowl shirts, hats, pins and patches. I'm not sure Erik has ever been so excited in his life, and to be honest, Brian and I are bursting at the seams with pride and excitement for him here at home! The game is tomorrow at 7pm central time on ESPN... enjoy =) If you are in town feel free to come over, we'll have snacks, drinks and non-stop coverage. So excited for Erik and the band. Can't hardly believe this opportunity!!!
