Jerry Kill, (Minnesota) Gopher

Jerry Kill

We’re watching SportsCenter when a picture of Jerry Kill, coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers football team, comes on the screen, accompanied by the unfortunate news that Kill suffered a seizure following the team’s 21-13 loss to Northwestern.

“He’s still alive?” my son asks. “He didn’t die?”

“He had a seizure,” I say.

“So he’s still alive, right?”


“In that case, I’m going to go ahead and say that he looks like a gopher.”
