Pastor Lindke is not as much of a sports watcher, though he is officially a Husker fan, since he lived in Nebraska for a year, a Cubs fan, to make his father happy, and a Red Wings fan. He did play high school football and he wrestled. He is much more of a TV and Movie sort of person, as he got into the habit years ago of seeing a movie on the weekends, if at all possible.
