Brian Beatty Ends 2019


“Stuck in traffic in Nebraska” isn’t a phrase you ever expected to hear yourself say in your life. Then it’s game day and football fans statewide are determined to watch their team win or lose in person. Because there’s nothing else to see in Nebraska, you figure, besides that corn palace. Fan vehicles, festooned in team red and white, creep along Highway 80 from Omaha to Lincoln at a funeral pace. You’re in your car so long you forget where you thought you were going.
