I am an extremely proud Northwestern University grad who lives in Texas - far, far away from most Big 10 football action. I miss Chicago. I miss Evanston. I miss Buffalo Joe's. I miss the El. I miss the weather (only in Spring when the crocuses bloom). I miss listening to NUMB (Northwestern University Marching Band) play the fight song.
Now we can all enjoy it and practice for the NU football game. My friends think I am a little crazy to be so excited, but I haven't seen my beloved Cats play in over 10 years. Go. Wear Purple. Beat the Owls!
