Monday Flakes: Argentina Husker Fans, Women’s NIT, and Poop-Eating Pitcher Plants

Hola Nación Maíz!

Juan me envió de incógnito a la tierra de la carne asada para investigar el potencial para convertir nuevos fanáticos de Husker.

[Jon sent me undercover to the land of grilled beef (Argentina) to investigate the potential to convert new Husker fans.]

Okay. The trip across the equator had nothing to do with Corn Nation or Husker football. Ranchdude’s company hosted some visitors from Argentina last year and decided to send some of their workforce (and a couple lucky spouses like me) to learn more about agriculture there. Ranchdude’s company is based in Wisconsin and at least one of the travel party was quick to try and co-opt “Go Big Red” as a Badger-related thing.

The proof is in the pudding. I am happy to report that Ranchdude has multiple videos of Argentine nationals declaring “Nebraska Cornhuskers #1!” We were able to convert people to Nebraska football fandom, unlike our Badger, Gopher and Illini counterparts.

Go Big Red!

The Husker women have won two NIT games and are in the Super Sixteen. I apologize for the lack of coverage, but I had very little cell or wifi service in many of the areas we visited. (Thank you unnamed CN staff member for picking up the slack!! Here is the recap)
