Red Shirtgate

December 20, 2005 at 1:21pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in 625 Elm Street

Breaking news! It was John Cook’s fault that Nebraska lost the National Championship volleyball match in San Antonio. How do I know? He wore a red shirt to the match and I’ve been told by folks in the know that Cook never wears a red shirt to matches.

Whew, I’m relieved. I thought for sure I had screwed up one of my superstitions. As it turns out, it was Coach Cook who offended the gods with his clothing faux pas. Tsk tsk. Remember Husker fans, if you see Coach Cook wearing a red shirt at the Qwest Center next year, it is your duty as a red-blooded Husker to get that evil thing off of him!

I feel I should step forward.  I accept blame for all of this.  Most years, I don’t show even remote interest in volleyball.  And then I heard Nebraska was doing well.  I showed vague remote interest (which mostly consisted of thumbing through the sports page and thinking “those two ain’t half bad looking”), and then I f’ed it all up.

I apologize to the team, the coaches, and the fans.

Don’t feel bad Joshua.  That describes you and many many many many other fans.
