    My first trip to Twin Peaks

    I thought I would go to Twin Peaks to watch the game yesterday. Walk in the door, and I'm greeted by a bunch of girls all wearing Hawkeye gear. Sit at the bar and they have the volume turned up for the Hawk game, but muted on the Cyclone game. Even after the Iowa game was over, instead of turning up the volume of the ISU game, they just turned music on instead. Add all this to the fact that I was completely ignored after I got my food. It took me getting up and approaching a server to even get my check. I got the feeling that the owner doesn't want money from Cyclone fans. I'm happy to oblige. Thought other Cyclone fans might feel the same.

    This thread sounds eerily familiar.

    But seriously, if I walked into a business where everyone was wearing Hawk gear I would have just walked out.

    I bet you got bad service because they were Hawkeye fans.

    Re: My first trip to Twin Peaks

    I actually had two women tell me yesterday while tailgating that they like the Hawkeyes better because they can get Hawkeye stuff at Victoria's Secret.

    Solid reasoning.

    No business ever survives very long in that spot anyway - it's cursed. With this story, however, I will savor cheering it's demise.
