Nebraska: truly one of the most criminally overlooked states in the nation. Wedged in right there in the middle of the country, and it didn't even get an exact rectangle shape like some others—Colorado took a chunk out of the bottom left.
You're no stranger to being the underdog if you're from Nebraska. Folks from the Cornhusker state are feisty and mighty proud of their origins. That's because they know Nebraska is more than just bug eaters and tree planters. What more exactly…we couldn't tell you.
Just kidding. From Lincoln to Omaha, Nebraska, is full of some interesting people. Not to brag, but it's even home to the once-richest man in the world, Warren Buffett—ever heard of him? He even still lives, which goes to show.
If you're not from around these parts, consider a trip to the 402. It'll put Disneyland to shame. Ok, maybe it won't—but it'll be entirely different in an awesome way. Take this as your sign to discover the vibrant Midwest. Before you go, though, it's crucial to brush up on some Nebraska facts...
You might have already known, but Nebraska is pretty flat. Very flat, in fact. They say that in Nebraska, you can watch your dog run away from home for three days.
There isn't much room for hills and valleys between the Great Plains and the Dissected Till Plains—although there are a few, and they're pretty darn scenic! All that flat land makes for incredible sunsets, cool rock formations, and abundant wildlife.
We have a map that might help if you need more geographical detail. Or if you're lost out in the Oglala National Grassland, just spin in a circle and look at the horizon. You'll probably be able to see Omaha.
You know what they say about Nebraska: seldom imitated and never copied. And that's how Nebraska likes it—they're busy doing their own thing. But even if they tried, one thing can never be reproduced: the Nebraskan passion for football.
While the state doesn't have its own NFL team, fans still go crazy for the sport in college and the pros. Fans of the University of Lincoln-Nebraska's Cornhuskers aren't just fans—they're fanatics. We challenge you to search for a more passionate group of team supporters.
It's not just alums supporting them, either. After all, with five national championships and countless conference champs, jumping on board the Nebraska train is easy.
Football isn't just a sport to Nebraskans; it's a chance to foster a sense of community. In the middle of a harsh Midwest winter, there's nothing like coming together with friends and family to watch the Huskers pound Iowa into dust.
Fandom goes beyond simply football, too. Old heads will remember teams like basketball's Omaha Racers and hockey's Omaha Knights. While they don't play anymore, these teams are still interwoven in the deep cultural roots that are Nebraska's sports passion.
Can't forget about the state's baseball history, either. Between hosting its first MLB game in 2019 (the All-Star Game, no less) and the Nebraska Huskers' trip to the College World Series in 2005, there have been plenty of iconic moments for seam heads.
If you're getting wrapped up in the excitement of thinking about all this sports passion, we give you express permission to join the bandwagon that can't be duplicated. As a new fan, though, you should at least dress the part in a good Nebraska t-shirt or two.
So, how do I look the part when visiting Nebraska, you ask? A good rule of thumb is a Nebraska Huskers shirt is appropriate for any occasion—from casual to black tie.
Don't quote us on that. We can help you out, though, with a collection of new items and top sellers that boast all things Nebraskan pride. We've got all shapes and sizes: find men t-shirts, women t-shirts, kids t shirts, and unisex t-shirts at the ready on our site.
By all rights, it's the premier collection of Nebraska gear around. And if you're not satisfied with our t-shirts and tank tops, we've got stickers, tote bags, and even flags to satisfy your need to show off your Nebraska street cred.
So, what are you waiting for? You could be one Nebraska pizza tee away from becoming the next CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. There are no guarantees, but you will definitely look stylish at the next sales meeting.
