    Rudy, corn, and the legendary ISU-Iowa rivalry

    I was reading an article in the NY Times on Rudy Giuliani kind of bumbling his way through western Iowa (he compared Iowa to Staten Island more than once ) when I came across this paragraph:
    The conversation topics included why he was running for president, Iowa and, inevitably enough, sports. Mr. Giuliani was crestfallen to learn, from a table of schoolchildren, that baseball is not as popular in Iowa as it is in New York. He moved on to ask for an explanation of “how does it break down between Iowa and Iowa State,” as he tried to fathom the legendary rivalry between the two university football teams.
    That was all there was there but I'm not sure I've ever heard the rivalry called "legendary" by anyone outside of Iowa. Anyway, it's kind of an amusing article about a city boy trying to connect to rural voters.

    At least he didn't compare western Iowa to Queens...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
