The first Iowa Hawkeye football game is in 13 days. September 4th. Labor Day weekend. Our anniversary. Don’t ask me who they play because I don’t know. All I know if that the games are starting and people are getting out their Hawkeye stuff: in their yards, on their cars, on their bodies… While I’m not looking forward to the home-game Saturday traffic, I AM looking forward to much less people shopping at Wal-Mart on Saturday afternoons and excuses to visit out-of-town family! Did I mention there’s also a home game the weekend of my birthday…again? No, I’m not a hater. Just a not-jumping-on-the-college-football-bandwagon’er.
