Iowa Wins!!!!!!!

I think I have expressed that I attended the University of Iowa many years ago, and that I still remain an avid fan.  We used to purchase season football tickets back in the day when I was in the accounting profession.

A Saturday outing to the Iowa City Kinnick stadium was on the agenda for every home game.  We never traveled to the other stadiums, as I couldn't get enough time away from the office for that.  But still, every game calls for it to be watched or listened to if possible.  Even now!

So it should come as no surprise that our entire day surrounded the 5:30 Mountain time Fox Sports coverage of the Orange bowl.  And believe me I was sitting here with Hawkeye hat on waiting for it to begin.  If you didn't get to see it, we won, much in the same way we won all year, with the game in doubt until the very end when we got a last touchdown with less than two minutes remaining.

Pinch me I think I just had heart failure.  But tonight our season is officially over as a BCS Bowl winner.  This is the highest the school has ever finished in Football,,,, ever!  We did win the Rose bowl back in 1957 and again in 1959 but we didn't have near this many season wins.

So I haven't read any blogs, or done anything constructive other than call all over the place trying to regain some prescription coverage, since my plan has changed Rx companies, and of course my scripts didn't transfer.

I'll get to try and fix that from 1300 miles away, but with the big game, I am still distracted.  Perhaps tomorrow.

So if your not into football, I apologize for writing about it, but it was really my entire day preparing for the big game.  I am estatic with the victory!  Sorry Georgia.

  1. Football? Is that where they hit a little round ball with a stick & then run around in a circle:))

  2. I watched the game last night too and there was no doubt Iowa deserved to win. They played a great game!

  3. Congrats! It is awesome when your team wins a big one like that! I was pulling for them. Knowing you were a diehard fan made it more interesting for me. Thanks!

  4. Thank you folks for your support!!
