Nice impression

About a dozen people have forwarded this link to me. The author is correct: Lincoln really is college football Nirvana. I was pleased that our officers helped create the nice impression. When you’re a police officer working the detail, it takes a lot of hard work to get through a Nebraska football home game day. Officers are certainly on public display, in an often frustrating role where patience and lip-biting are required. It’s a good thing I had a whistle in my mouth back when I directed traffic at every home game for 13 seasons.

Detox for adult women was full by about 7pm on game day, wasn't it?

You forgot to mention the officers who are not working the football detail and are stuck taking calls for service with a skelton crew. These officers, for the most part center team and northwest, are running from call to call because the officers who are normally assigned to those teams are working the game; either before the game, during the game inside the stadium, or after game traffic. Let's not forget about the officers who are taking the calls when there is a Nebraska Football.
