    Re: Blum: Game Time

    Great article, Brent. I love the focus on how players broke out beyond expectations. Everyone seems to act like if a kid has rode the bench for a long time, or hadn't played all that well, that somehow he wasn't going to ever be a good player, when that's certainly not always the case.

    Great article, for someone already pumped for Saturday, that just made me feel like the next 3 days are going to go by painfully slow.

    Re: Blum: Game Time

    For 12 days during the year, Cyclone football takes center stage. 50,000 plus gather in the place that is a 2nd home for all of us.
    For 12 days, we are one.
    The anticipation is building. Saturday is almost here. Forget the off-season soap-opera.
    The real party is about to begin.
    See you at the Jack.
    Goosebumps. I can't wait!

    Great article. Fire up. I will be drunk, in costume, on a bicycle in Fort Collins, but my heart will be in Ames. Tailgate your butts off!

    Re: Blum: Game Time

    That gave me goosebumps and a shiver that is usually only reserved for the touch of a women! Great article! I think I am about ten times more pumped for Cyclone football then I ever was a student!

    (Sorry for the excessive exclamation points, I am just so pumped!)

    Blum's touch is much like a woman's, with much cleaner results.

    (there's no excuse for over punctuation)

    That's it. I'm leaving work now, driving from Council Bluffs to Ames and sitting in my seat until Saturday. If anyone needs me I'll be at JTS from now til 6 pm Saturday.

    Why would you wait that long at JTS and then leave at kick off?

    Good point, in all reality it would only be until noon sSturday when I venture out to tailgate looking for some fun then promptly returning to my seat at 5:30 in anticipation of the second greatest moment of the year (first being my son born on the Aug 3rd, but this is a close second).
