Those of you who have attended previous events know that I am a big Gopher football fan. I am sending this while in a car (I am not driving) while on my way Madison, WI to hopefully see the Gophers bring Paul Bunyan’s Axe back to Minneapolis. I will have infrequent access to email and do my best to return messages in a timely manner.
