    Good crack at the Hawks

    So I'm at the Iowa State Fair right now (State of Iowa's fair...) working at the Giant Slide. For those who don't know what that is... it's pretty simple - it's a giant slide (~35' tall). Tonight a guy wearing a Hawkeye polo came up, and asked if he could go down head first. Here is how the conversation went

    Hawk: "Can I go head first?"
    Me: "No."
    Hawk: "Why not?"
    Me: "Do you remember what happened when Drew Tate lead with his head?"
    Hawk: "Oh. Good point..."


    Needless to say, he didn't go head first

    Oh yeah? Well, you didn't actually crack him; he came out flat and then beat himself. And that's only because the Giant Slide is your Superbowl. So there!

    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    What do you mean? With this experience he could be moving up to the ring toss in no time.

    Nah, just something I've done for s***s and giggles for 8 or 9 years now...
    By now it also pays decent enough for student about to go back to school (Funds my road trips to football games, and the cost of making my outfit/face and body paint)

    You don't put 70,000+ people down a 16' wide slab of metal at the ring toss

    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
