Some of you still may be recovering from the huge win the Hawks had in the Bowl game. I mean, could you believe the last play of that game? I was screaming running around my family room in awe of what I just saw. Another buddy of mine actually put his shoulder through a wall in his house. Not to mention they beat the LSU Tigers. LSU, the same team that was the National Champion just last year.
This is a great thing, however for me it is getting a little scary.
I have friends that are crazy Hawk fans. I mean these guys sleep, eat, drink, and dream Iowa football. Now I am a Hawk fan as well, but not even close to these guys. Every year I have to hear why the Hawks are going to win the Big 10 and why they probably will get to the National Championship game. I appreciate their loyality, and their drive to see the Hawks do well, but sometimes it gets old. I have seen their hopes and dreams crushed so many times. So a few years ago I made a bet. Here is the bet.
If the Hawkeyes ever win the National Championship in football I will run from Dike, Iowa to Cedar Falls, Iowa in a pink thong bikini.
That is right! You heard it here.
However, now I am starting to get a little concerned. The Hawks are good, really good. They are evil. The defense pounds the crap out of people and the offense is not shabby at all. They have the X factor.
Next year some polls I have seen have the Hawks ranked at #2.
So in the next few years if you happen to be driving around the Cedar Falls, Iowa area and you see some guy running in a pink thong bikini, it is me. Just smile, wave, and yell GO HAWKS.
