may the best team win
when: friday, sept. 9, 2011
around these parts, the iowa vs. iowa state football game is a big deal. i didn’t grow up as a fan for either team, but i love this ISU shirt i found at goodwill about eight years ago. it is by far the greatest thing i’ve ever thrifted. it’s from 1977, and was the first time the two teams played since 1934.
it’s so special, i’m not even sure i should be wearing it.
then, i married a hawkeye fan and our unborn child already has two iowa hawkeye bibs from my mother-in-law. since i don’t really care, i guess my vote doesn’t count. i wore the “go hawks!” pin on my cardigan just for him, since i am fairly impartial. and i think iowans should like both teams, at least when they’re not playing each other.
in the end, my team won! woo! it was a fun game to watch and went to three overtimes. go state!
