The Huskers’ season in 2009 was off to a rough start. They had two bad loses in a row. Owen would be in bed or taking a nap before the games would end, so when he got up we told him that they lost.
One day Lane was driving Owen around and Owen asked if the Huskers play today. Lane said, “No, they play on Saturdays.” Then Lane went on to tell Owen that, “Today is Wednesday. Tomorrow is Thursday. The next day is Friday, then it’s Saturday. What happens on Saturday?”
Owen enthusiastically answers, “The Huskers lose!”
