Something unique or interesting about me is …
I’m a sports junkie, so I’ve been fortunate to see a lot of cool sporting events live, including the College World Series; Super Bowl XL; Nebraska versus Oklahoma; the Fiesta Bowl; the Cactus Bowl; Big 12 Championship; Pac 12 Championship; and Game 5 at Wrigley Field of the 2016 World Series. I only have few games left on the bucket list, including the NBA Finals, Stanley Cup Playoffs, and seeing Nebraska play in a National title game live!
