Welcome, Husker Nation, to another Fast Friday edition of the Carriker Chronicles, where each and every Friday I keep it quick and easy. And yes, the debate rages on in the Carriker household but as you can see, I'm still rockin' the beard, so at the moment, I'm still winning said debate. Stay tuned in the future to see how much longer I can continue to win this friendly debate with my beautiful wife.
But today, I want to do something special for you Carriker Chronicles viewers at home. I always thought it would be cool, growing up as a fan (and having the chance to play), I thought I would give you fans the same experience that I was able to have, and give it to you through the show here. I am going to give you a behind-the-scenes look into the locker room before games, because before every game we say the Nebraska football prayer. So I'm going to do that for you guys today – give you that experience and especially let you feel what it's like before a big game. So let's do it, shall we? (puts on helmet, bows head).
Dear Lord, the battles we go through life,
We ask for a chance that's fair,
A chance to equal our stride,
A chance to do or dare.
If we should win, let it be by the code,
Faith and Honor held high.
If we should lose, we'll stand by the road,
and cheer as the winners go by.
DAY BY DAY,
WE GET BETTER AND BETTER
'TIL WE CAN'T BE BEAT,
WON'T. . . . .BE. . . . .BEAT!
(flips table, throws papers) AUGHHHH!
And always remember ... to THROW THE BONES!!
