Iowa Beats Iowa State!

The Cy-Hawk trophy is back in Iowa City!  
It started off rainy, but by the end of the first quarter, the poncho came off, and the temperature was great.  I even ended up with a sunburn.  I know better than to go without sunscreen, even on the rainy days.  Serves me right.  

It was a slow first half, and we know the Hawks need some work before meeting any Big Ten opponents, but the Iowa State game is always unpredictable.  The intense rivalry means that anything can happen.  I'm just glad it happened in our favor this year.

The Mornin' Crew tailgating group was up early, and we enjoyed pretty much a whole day of celebrating.
After the big win, we came back and ate, ate, ate.  The theme for the day was "Bad Bird" and included Speedies (marinated Italian chicken sandwiches, appropriately named for how fast Cyclone fans were leaving Iowa City yesterday), Skewered Thai Cy, and Spicy Cy wings.  

Until next year, Iowa State fans...

  1. You better count on it! And make sure Ferentz fixes the statue your boys broke after grabbing it from the Iowa State sideline.

    The trophy being in Ames 7 out of the last 11 years isn't bad.

    Glad you guys had a good time.
