I don’t know if this makes our current situation void of sports, any better than what it is right now. There is a strong argument to be had, that this Emmy-deserving video actually makes our mandated-isolation even worse.
Sure, I like thinking back to the good old days, where 50,000 rabid fans storming, hugging each other and crowding TCF Bank Stadium field didn’t make me cringe and tap the hand sanitizer…. but it also makes me sad (and hand sanitizer is hard to come by nowadays, if you haven’t heard).
You can read my postgame blog from TCF Bank Stadium immediately after that game. It was the biggest Gopher football victory of my lifetime… the type of game that Gopher football has lost for my entire lifetime. But, this is a new age. PJ Fleck’s postgame press conference was fire, as always.
This video is part of a series Gopher Football is doing, where they have players watch, react, and recount big moments from last year’s historic season. Find a link to the others, and more videos for Gopher football fans, below.
All we can do now, is stay away from each other so we can get sports back before this epidemic bleeds into football season. Oh yeah, in case you aren’t a football fan, keeping distance will save lives too.
