Joe and I with Governor Heineman and his wife Sally Ganem. We were invited to a tailgate party by Lou and Suzie Allgayer before the Nebraska game last Saturday. We've never been to anything like this before so of course we had to go. They were very gracious when Joe and I circled back and asked to have another picture with them. It's not every day Governor Heineman has someone ask him for a selfie. I couldn't reach my arm out far enough so we had to recruit some help for the selfie.
