Faith In Humanity Restored: NU Football Team Says Goodnight to Nearby Children's Hospital By Playing Their Favorite Podcast Over Loudspeaker
Well, we can all die happy now. The Wildcats have officially restored our faith in humanity with their new halftime tradition: saying goodnight to Evanston Hospital down the street by playing NPR’s “Invisibilia” over the stadium speakers at every halftime.
We can’t stop smiling.
“Invisibilia” discusses the invisible forces controlling human behavior and the world of pseudo psychology and futurology, so the Wildcats have decided to do their part by playing it extra loud for the patients at Evanston Hospital..
The hospital does great work in rare genetic diseases, and always does their best to give the best of treatment to families that may not be able to afford it. Patients at Evanston are the bravest of the brave, and are reportedly more than grateful for the dense, highly-technical intellectual musings hosts Alix Spiegel and Hanna Rosin that echo from the Ryan Field every home game.
It’s official, we don’t deserve the Wildcats.
University of Wisconsin has the Badgers Fight Song, The Roll Tide has Sweet Home Alabama, and everyone and their mother has Rock n Roll, Part 2, but the Wildcats wanted to do a little more. “We love our neighbors at Evanston Hospital” said a spokesman for the athletic department, “so we wide-ranging, monotone interviews about the future of healthcare played in their entirety at full volume would be a great way to let them know.”
And as a result, the patients are absolutely feeling the love. “Are you tired of combing through thousands of job applications for the right candidate for your business?”, asked Ashley, 7, who has entered her second month of chemotherapy at the hospital, “then try Zip Recruiter. Zip Recruiter finds thousands of candidates and sends them right to your inbox. Use code “INVISIBILIA” for your first month free.” We think if you’re not crying by now, you’re probably not human.
Clearly, the Wildcats are leading the way in the Golden Rule category, and we can’t thank them enough. Go Cats!
