San Francisco, CA – Some Bison football fans taking buses to the Big Game in Frisco ended up taking a very wrong turn.
A convoy of four buses full of Bison fans had gotten as far as Omaha, Nebraska when one of the bus drivers was chatting with a trucker at a truck stop during a smoke break.
“Where yawl headed?” asked the trucker.
“Taking these fine Fargo folks to Frisco!” the head bus driver answered.
“Well, there’s Interstate 80. That will take yawl straight to Frisco!” said the trucker.
“OK, thanks” the bus driver responded, as they both stomped out their cigarettes.
Unfortunately the trucker supposedly thought they were going to San Francisco instead of Frisco, Texas.
Many miles later, the convoy of four busloads of singing Bison fans pulled into San Fransicso, California.
They’re now all riding the San Francisco cable cars asking everyone “Where are the Bison? Where’s the big game?!”
It turns out that the trucker back in Omaha who gave them wrong directions attended Illinois State University. He knew that all those Bison fans were trying to get to Frisco, Texas to cheer the Bison on to their 4th straight National Championship.
Moral of the story: Never take directions from a Redbird.
