    first ISU football game

    just an interesting note for you all.

    my dad has never been to an ISU game before. he lives in Saint Paul and goes to a lot of gophers games and does not drink.

    I met him in ames for the game and he couldn't belive all the tailgaters. I told him since its Thursday it was actually pretty light compared to normal. ran into an old work aquaintence who said the pregame atmosphere was weak, too. my dad could not believe the amount of people at a Thursday game. he was very impressed and wished we had timeto hang out before the game.

    inside the stadium he was very impressed with the scoreboard and view of the "beautiful countryside". he thought the fans were great and is 10x better than MN even with their new stadium (which is beautiful).

    he wants to come back because he said it was the best football environment hes ever been too. he actually made plans with another gopher fan to drive down later this year for a game to show it off.

    this was all before the actual fantastic game. so you all created a new fan.

    Good deal, is he super wealthy? :)


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: first ISU football game

    Our stadium and fans are legit. All outsiders or newcomers who visit realize this. In the past decade it's really become a major college football atmosphere. It was electric on Thursday, even with a subdued/midweek/early kickoff tailgate.
