Can’t Win ‘Em All

We were at the Nebraska-Iowa game today. It was cold. At kickoff, it was about 33 F, 0.5 C, so I came bundled like I was on the frozen tundra. The sun was high and bright, and soon made my layers unnecessary. I felt like a weirdo in my warm hat, T-shirt, and jeans. Everyone else looked like they were set for snowmageddon.

If you pay any attention to sports scores, you know that my side was so very sad at the end. The Iowa team, though, was so darned excited to claim that trophy that we have been holding the last couple years, they really ameliorated quite a bit of the sting from that defeat. It was a joy for me to watch them running full speed across the field to our sideline.

Somehow, I don’t think we would have shown quite the same exuberance. They hadn’t beaten us at home since 1943. That’s not breaking a drought. That’s breaking a dam. So, Kudos, Hawkeyes! Savor the victory. Hopefully we will put up a better fight next year.
