Lehman, the team’s phone technician, was spotted eating a DQ Dilly Bar before the start of the third quarter of Minnesota’s game vs. No. 8 Ohio State on Saturday. He did the same last week, also in frigid temps. Clearly, Lehman is Minnesota tough. If you’re wondering, the Minnesota press box serves the snack as a halftime treat.
