Proudly keep the colors flying skyward!

You know that Jeff is a fairly reserved guy, right?

You also know that the Mizzou Tigers played Nebraska in Nebraska yesterday, right?

Did you know that the Mizzou Tigers haven’t scored a victory in Nebraska in thirty years?

Yesterday evening, less than fifteen minutes before the start of the game, Jeff jumped up from the couch and ran outside. A few minutes later, I glanced up and found him doing this:
Flying the Flag

And because Jeff gazelled around the yard flying the Mizzou flag for nearly ten minutes, the Tigers took Nebraska down with a final score of 52-17. It just goes to show that sometimes you have to shake it up in order to come out on top, Cliché Wizard.

  1. I don’t often make my husband read other people’s blog posts, but I did ask him to read this one. He gives it a hearty, “Awesome.”

  2. So it’s his fault!! We watched that game (in pain) last night from our living room in Omaha. Little did I know that Mr. Pudding was the cause of all our pain.

  3. I also have a MU-obsessed Jeff in the household. We watched the joyous event at a party on Saturday night, than watched it AGAIN after sending the babysitter home. (You know, in hi-def.) Now, it’s taking up space on our DVR next to last year’s MU-KU game.

  4. Uh, oh, CarrieP! Thems fightin’ words… I say sitting one mile from KU. :-)

    My kids already have picked up the fact that they aren’t supposed to like Misery, er, Missouri. Not from me, mind you. I have no such loyalties, but it was mighty fun watching us take the big prize in b-ball this year.

  5. That is all sorts of awesome.

    I will suggest my MU-Fan husband do the same down here in the LSUniverse. Really freak out our southern neighbors!

  6. during this game my 65 year old motherinlaw..buzzed on gin & tonic ran around the living room singing the mizzou fight song..she CAN cuz she was a member of Marching Mizzou (class of 62)
