It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!


Yes, the annual Nebraska-Colorado game is nearly upon us. A very creative poster on HuskerPedia.com created the following ode to the game, so with a couple of minor edits, and with deepest apologies to Andy Williams and Johnny Mathis I give you The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Go Big Red Version):


It's the most wonderful time of the year.
When the Buffs visit Lincoln
And NU Fan’s thinkin'
"I'm glad the game's here!"
It's the most wonderful time of the year.

It's the hap-happiest season of all.
No health hazards like Folsom,
It’s usually wholesome
If refs blow a call!
It's the hap-happiest season of all!

There's no batteries for throwing,
or reefer for smoking,
or rocks inside balls made of snow.
There'll be no lasers flashing or
car tire slashings or tales of '01,
long ago.

It's the most wonderful time of the year.
It’s a failed CU season,
Hawk might be the reason
the team's not in gear!
It's the most wonderful time of the year.

There'll be no field of debris,
Or effing eff bombs heaved
at old folks you see dressed in red.
There'll be no vehicle keyings,
Or whole sections leaving
Before the game has reached an end!

It's the most wonderful time of the year.
Enjoying Buff fan bashing
(Yes their teeth are gnashing)
No pee bombs to fear!
It's the most wonderful time,
It's the most wonderful time,
It's the most wonderful time of the year!

What a GREAT time of year - Roast Turkey followed by Roasted Buffalo!

Thanks for the Seasonal Tribute..... and speaking of "seasonal", pass the salt please.

Oh, Matt...

I could post the 'alternate' lyrics to the CU Fight Song here, but I won't - I know you're not a big fan of gratuitous obscenities.

This, however, was awesome. Here's to a couple pounds of roast Ralphie in just a few short hours!

In the aftermath of yesterday's game I found your post. Great stuff.

PS I tried to put a Husker spin on my blog as well.
