    Spring Game?

    From what I have seen from the news, it looks like it is going to be a rainy Saturday at JTS. Is there any chance that they will broadcast the scrimmage on MC 22?

    I doubt it. That's not something they can easily do at the last minute.

    Per cyclones.com there will not be any video available of the game, just highlights after and radio.

    Yes, they're going to pull together a telecast from soup to nuts in 24 hours' time to save you from getting a little wet.

    Is this the definition of a "fair weather fan"?

    Here's what my forecast says:

    Mostly cloudy skies with scattered thunderstorms developing later in the day.
    Personally, I am going to interpret "later in the day" as "after the game"--and be there anyway! GO CYCLONES!




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    Re: Spring Game?

    Look at the forecast closer. Everyone has been saying for days that the storms won't get to central Iowa until evening. Don't just look at the graphic that says storms 70%.

    That's exactly what "fair weather fan" originally meant. It meant if the weather was fair, you'd go to a game. If not, you wouldn't.
