    Need guidance from fellow Clone fans

    So, we are on our way to Memphis and my diehard hawk fan wife is looking great sporting the Cardinal and Gold. She is a trooper and roots for the good guys when not playing Iowa. She goes to ISU games with me. I've gone to one Iowa game in 10 yrs with her and wore neutral colors. The subject comes up that if the roles were reversed and we were going to a Hawk bowl game that I would wear the Sqwauk apparel. My comment was just short of No way in hell. Didn't go over well and she isn't buying my argument about what is like to live as a Clone fan and the treatment from the Hawks over the years. She is a Hawk fan 40+ yrs. Never went there. I went to IState. Am I off here???

    Re: Need guidance from fellow Clone fans

    You made a few mistakes here. First, you married a Hawkeye fan. Then you went to a Hawkeye game where the Cyclones weren't involved. And last but not least, you let yourself get suckered into a no win conversation about whether you would wear their gear. You should have included not wearing that in the prenuptual agreement. C'mon, man...

    No, fight this one to the death. If that doesn't work, get a divorce lawyer.

    You are right and your tavern hawk wife is wrong.

    Unless she's a super football fan, tell me again why you'd ever attend a Hawkeye bowl game?

    I would divorce her before I ever put on Sqwak gear. That being said who the hell marries a sqwaker to begin with?

    In Iowa we have dissolution of marriage, basically it's no fault divorce. You could have gotten out at anytime.

    Depends on how good the sex is. If it meant getting it 2 or 3 times a week, I'd wear whatever it takes.

    The sight of black and gold turns my stomach. Wear it? Never.

    Re: Need guidance from fellow Clone fans

    No way in hell you put that gear on. Especially cause she is a Tavernhawk. I could give a sheet what she wore to ISU games though so long as it wasn't sparrowhawk gear.

    It is a long drive back and forth to Memphis. I would say maybe, perhaps, possibly, we will see to buy time for the trip. Then, when home, say that changed your mind to a no way jose.
