    Halloween Hawkeye Costume

    This Letter to the Editor appeared in the Waterloo/Cedar Falls Courier:

    "Halloween trick no treat"
    DENISE FRANKLIN

    CEDAR FALLS--To the two households in the Orchard Hill area of Cedar Falls that refused to give candy to my son because he was dressed up like an Iowa Hawkeye football player, I have one thing to say: Grow up! He is a 9-year-old boy. What did he ever do to you? Did you hope to teach him something? Well, you succeeded. He learned something about non-Hawkeye fans and it wasn't good.

    Halloween is for the children and there is no room for prejudice. At least he had a costume. Did you refuse to give candy to all the kids who showed up with no costumes?

    Perhaps you were kidding -- he didn't get the joke and you didn't call him back to correct it. He walked away from your houses wondering what he had done wrong. Way to go.

    Kids only get to trick or treat 12 or 13 times in their lives and probably only remember a handful of those times. Thanks for giving my son this memory. I hope you're proud of yourself.

    Thats funny... Personally I would of told the kid to get off my porch and get a job if he came up. Or raise my hands in terror thinking he was going to rob me.

    This lady was probably planning on living on that candy for the next couple of weeks. The cigarette tax has made things tough all over you know.

    Re: Halloween Hawkeye Costume

    Lady,

    You are the Mother. You made the decision to corrupt your Son. He was only nine and you were using him. Did you take the easy way out and send your poor 9 year old out in his football helmet. You need to be more innovative. Those Hawkeye uniforms are a dime a dozen. For your information, some of them are in jail now. Lady, next year get a life and dress him up like Shrek or the Teletubbies. Do not embarrass him again. Did they dress you up as a cheerleader when you were young? No, of course not.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Halloween Hawkeye Costume

    Now if the kid had shown up on a moped with handcuffs, a wad of cash, a "Life's a Hustle" shirt and his pants around his ankles, I might have given him candy for an accurate costume.

    Come on, kid. Accessorize. Show me you want it.

    Gee, Mom, you dressed him like a girly Hawkeye. No wonder they did not hand out treats.

    Re: Halloween Hawkeye Costume

    I don't think is funny at all. Kids should be left out of any Hawkeye/Cyclone crap slinging that goes on. My kids are growing up Cyclones in Hawkeye land I hate it when Hawk fans bring the kids into it.

    Edit: I guess it wasn't a named Cyclone fan but still....

    Agreed. I'd be pretty ticked if some a**-hole Hawk fan did that same thing to my kid if he was dressed up as a Cyclone for Halloween. It's good for a laugh here on the message board, but in real life, it's a crappy thing to do.
