I Met a Maverick . . .
Actually, I met a lot of Mavericks. Yesterday, I got to bring Students Fight Back! to the University of Nebraska at Omaha, home of the Mavericks . . . and they are AWESOME! I arrived in Omaha and it was sunny and 70 without a cloud in the sky. In case you are wondering, that is a sure fire sign of a great event to come. While my hotel reminded me a little bit of The Shining (a possibly bad omen), I had a feeling that the Mavericks would be a lively and enthusiastic crowd. As it turns out, my intuition was right on. The organizers and the crowd were so welcoming and engaging and everybody really embraced the palm-knee-knee, even our “Scary Bad Guy,” David. Thanks for being such a great sport!
