Songs Everyone Loves

These tracks are for the people that hate a certain type of genre or for people that hate every single song regardless of what it is.

The Badger Short Bus Invades Chicago

University of Wisconsin- Madison fans swarmed Chicago this past weekend for the UW vs. NIU football game at our hometown staple- Soldier Field.

As a proud UW alum myself, I pulled up to the game in style – on the infamous Badger Short Bus. Owned by five young gents, Paul O’Hara, Tom Davich, Dain Peer, Brian Snouffer and Tom Rohlf, the Badger Short Bus acts as a shuttle service to home and away Wisconsin football games. The arrival of the Badger Short Bus to the Soldier Field parking lot on Saturday signaled the start of a tailgating party hours before the start of the game.  Badger fans of all ages, decked out in red attire, striped overalls and cow print threads, eagerly awaited kick off. Check out the video above for a taste of the Badger Short Bus Festivities.
