    Am I an ISU scout?

    Was checking out at a grocery store here in the Twin Cities last night and the bag boy asked me if I was a scout for ISU. Pretty funny, guess I looked all “official” in an ISU polo, khaki chinos and my DOD IDs hanging from a lanyard around my neck.

    Questions remains as to what sport? I assume I am scouting for MBB and WBB since I am way too small of a guy to have had anything to do with football.

    Here in Phoenix I was wearing my D-Backs jersey, and the pharmacist in the drive-thru asked if I was on the team.

    If I was the bartender I would have made you pay double for wearing a Bon Jovi t-shirt.

    Here I thought he had a hot tip. Instead he was the recipient of a pickup line.

    He recognized the logo and all because his girlfriend is going to ISU! He even knew we might be pushing 30,000 students this fall.

    Touche...if it makes a difference it was an old school "Slippery When Wet" Bon Jovi t-shirt

    Re: Am I an ISU scout?

    I wore a blue polo into Menards once and got asked if I worked there.

    Re: Am I an ISU scout?

    My HS mascot was the Falcons (Black and Red). Was wearing a T-shirt in WDM that said "Falcon Football" I'm not a very small guy. Had a lady walk up to me and ask if I played for the Falcons. "Used to" I replied. Then I overheard her tell her friend "I told you he was a football player."
    Struck me about 5 minutes later that she was talking about the Atlanta Falcons


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
