    Not to be a downer but it might not be a Fanatic.

    I met a guy in Indiana wearing an ISU Band T-Shirt. When I complimented him on his good taste and said I graduated in 1966, he kind of looked embarrassed and mumbled that he picked it up in a thrift shop. This could be a similar case. Can't blame anyone for styling'.

    Well that's not the case here because Cyclone Fanatic shirts are too valuable to give thrift shoppers.

    Don't you get to deduct market value on your tax return? It's a win/win. Great tax deduction and spruce up the community at the same time.

    Well clearly I am not observant enough to be a flagman because I watched the video and didn't even notice his shirt.

    I think it is Erik because this guy obviously got the shirt with coupons.

    Re: Which one of you is this flagger?

    So we do know his name.... and so loving to solve a puzzle I Googled it and found some clues (and for the thrift shop argument, he is a die hard clone fan so that's off the table):
    1.Guy lives in Roland so that makes RolandRocket a suspect.
    2. Guy's name is David so one of the CycloneDave variations possible
    3. Guys favorite pro teams the Yankees, Viking, celtics...
    4. Dude lists Cher as one of his Favorite musicians and Top Gun for movies so could be Cyclonepride ;)
    5. Had a health scare in last month putting him in the ER but he was ok.

    That should at least narrow the suspects by elimination ;)

    Scary how much someone can learn about a person they see on a news clip in under a minute. Why people should make Facebook private to public. Would be so easy for scamming.

    I would assume RolandRocket is a fan of Gary Thompson before I would assume he is from Roland unless his profile lists Roland as his home. The Roland Rocket was Gary Thompson's nickname.


    By the way, you take stalking to a new level...

    Yeah I know Gary Thompson's nickname. RolandRocket does however list his home as roland iirc. Which is why I said that. If I really thought it was him though I wouldn't have said anything.

    I am also not one to do anything halfassed including stalking ;). If I really wanted to know I woud have spent more than 30 seconds looking at his "about me" though.

    Edit: maybe the limit is $3
    I am not sure if they are State Employees, I wouldn't think so, most likely privately hired. I have been a flagger in my college days, great pay for a very simple job.

    "When you lose to a fricking joke of a program like ISU, you get what you deserve. That game is a perfect illustration of why our head coach should be retired.
    In defense of the Big ten network, it is tough to find Iowa games anymore when we aren't embarrassed."

    Besides, if they got lottery tickets that hadn't been scratched the gift is the purchase price. If they had already been scratched the gift is the value of the prize.

    This seems like a fun easy way to bribe a public employee. "Here's your 3 lottery tickets for the day." After almost 1100 tickets in a year you'd have to win something.

    I'm pretty sure that receiving 3 lottery tickets every day (or any other $3 gift) from any one entity for even a week - say nothing about a year - would be a huge violation. There were attorneys that got into trouble up here because they got a golf ball from a court reporter company each time they used their services. While the value of the golf ball is neglible, the aggregate added up to a violation.

    I could be wrong but the iowa code definitely says... Nonmonitary items can not exceed three dollars from any one donor during one calendar day. Is the lottery ticket a nonmonitary item?

    Fair enough. It is a little stricter in Minnesota and Minneapolis. In addition we are supposed to avoid "the appearance of impropriety."
