You didn’t think I was going out just like that, did you?
Because we’re on spring break, I had a little down time to reflect on the past few months, and even before that.
Before the Wisconsin game, I thought it might be entertaining to capture the unique pregame atmosphere in Madison. What exactly did all the Badgers fans think of Cal Poly? How many of them had even heard of it before the game? I got some answers, some involving Tom Cruise.
Of course, it was rather humorous — so much so, in fact, that it just didn’t seem to be timely right after the whole country, much less the whole campus, couldn’t stop talking about what happened on the field itself, and how troublesome the immediate memory was on a personal level for the beleaguered Andrew Gardner. It brought out the worst in people, on campus and online.
But life goes on.
I even saw Gardner in a crowd on campus not too long ago, and he looked to be in good spirits. And certainly, many members of the team are moving on to brighter futures.
That is what happens after college, right? Or so I’ve heard.
So alas, even you, “Cal Poly fan,” as Jim Rome might say, can sit back and enjoy the memory with a chuckle. At least, that is my hope.
