    2nd year in a row I will miss the Iowa State vs Iowa game

    My son's football league keeps scheduling the scrimmages and pictures on this day. Thanks WDM football league for having your heads up your *** for the second straight year. All other games are on Sunday except the scrimmage and the pictures they put on the Iowa State vs. Iowa game again. No way I will miss my son playing football. Even if it's just a scrimmage. Angry e-mail sent. Sorry had to vent.

    Good, so after ISU wins again I'll assume you will never watch another ISU vs Iowa game again.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I skipped all my daughter's soccer games except 1 the only year she played. Wife handled it. Plus it's soccer so nobody cares.

    Game is away so unless you planned on attending, I'd DVR and put the earplugs in at the game to try and avoid updates.

    I would miss if it were a basketball game for my son. They only play a few football games though. I would try the DVR thing but there is no way to avoid the score at these games. People are actually watching them on there phones while there kids games are going on.

    I would do this is if I were you.
    I would but I am not very Tech savy (38 years old). I will probably just follow along on a game cast of some sort. Last year my battery ran out half way through my sons game. I missed the end.

    I think it's about time you told your son he's no good at football and should take up sports that are in-season during the spring

    It's amazing to me that any group would schedule a sports-related event during the Iowa State/Iowa game in this state, much less one that involves football.

    I'm still bitter about '07 when the ticket got stolen from my back pocket on the way down to the game.

    On the plus(?) side, I got to hang out outside the gates with drunken Iowa fans and be one of the first on the field to rush it since they opened the gates with 3 seconds to go.

    Get on the board and change things. Oh well, the game last wasn't all that exciting anyway.

    I wouldn't be happy either, but enjoy the day with your son. I am a die hard fan, but you will have a lot more ISU games to watch in your life time than the amount of games you will get to enjoy watching your son. Enjoy the day with you son and a cyclone victory!!

    Re: 2nd year in a row I will miss the Iowa State vs Iowa game

    My daughter had a volleyball tournament last year and will this year as well. TVs at the high school help and I live about a mile from the HS so I can go back and forth between matches. It's fun watching with a mix of ISU and Iowa fans in an eastern Iowa HS. Iowa was losing and I hear "I thought we were supposed to be good?" in the background.

    As a father of girls getting close to the ends of their athletic careers, I would never skip their events for an Iowa-ISU game. DVR helps. If Iowa wins it's a waste of my time anyway and will never watch a second of it.

    This is the correct answer. Kids cause people to miss big football games.
