This happened at last week's Nebraska state speech championships, and we are so glad that it did. We don't know the identity of the kid fire-hosing the remnants of his turkey sandwich all over his hands and feet, but we do know that he is a hero. Because of him, we may now enjoy the world's first perfect photo.
Thursday morning, the Oscar nominations come out. To mentally prepare you, here are our predictions for the eight major categories.
After an eight-yard sack on second down left Nebraska with a third-and-14 play from their own one-yard line, Nebraska did not go with the bullshit draw play. The Huskers went for it all.
My favorite Alexander Payne movie is always going to be Election. His 1999 satire—about a high school teacher (Matthew Broderick) who makes it his mission to ensure that the ambitious Tracy Flick (a never-better Reese Witherspoon) fails to win her election for class president—wasn't just incredibly, darkly funny but…
The Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off on Wednesday, is the year's premier film festival, the launching pad in recent years for celebrated movies like The Tree of Life, No Country for Old Men, The Artist, Amour, Holy Motors and Inglourious Basterds.

Among the spectators in that game, according to this delightful clipping the Northwestern University…
The marquee game, at least according to the tiny numbers next to their names, is Michigan State at Nebraska. Stop on by and chat about it.
Carl Pelini, Nebraska's defensive coordinator, has denied that he shoved a credentialed reporter on the field after a 9-6 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday. His younger brother, head coach Bo, apologized today for his own outbursts during the game.

Former Nebraska/NFL running back Lawrence Phillips was convicted of seven felony charges yesterday and faces up to 25 years in prison, but he's already in jail, serving a 10-year sentence for another crime. How did it come to this?
Wake up, shitheads! Time for you to get up, swallow 15 Advil, put your pants back on, and stagger home like the dirty, filthy people you are. Here are the bowl games you’ll need to nurse that hangover…
