From the We-All-Must-Be-Masochists Department, I got this from the University of Minnesota:
UPDATE as of 10 a.m., Dec. 16, 2010:
Due to an overwhelming response from hundreds of great Minnesotans, the University of Minnesota is no longer accepting shovelers to help clear TCF Bank Stadium on Thursday, Dec. 16. Those interested in helping on Friday, Dec. 17 can check back in at the stadium at 8 a.m.
Nice to see they found so many.
