    My Cyclone Mistake

    Here I am walking through the O'Hare Airport when I see a guy wearing a Nike "Cyclones" gray shirt. I say "Go State" as I walk buy and he stops and looks at me weird.

    I then notice the "B" on the sleeve meaning Brooklyn Cyclones.

    Wow I feel like an idiot sometimes...


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: My Cyclone Mistake

    That's kind of like what happened to me the other day. I saw a car with a license plate frame that said Go Hawks, so I rammed into them. Turns out it was just the local high school.

    Whoops.

    I've had the opposite happen to me. Someone has seen me wear Cyclone gear and have said "Hey Brooklyn!" To which I'm sure I returned a blank stare and "uhh, no.."

    How does a small community college get in with Nike, when our school wont even let us put our name on a keychain.

    Brooklyn Cyclones are a Class A baseball team affiliated with the Mets, not a CC.

    I can't tell if your being sarcastic or not...but we have one of the better Nike deals in the country.

    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    The last Hawk shirt I saw had Hawks on the front and jailbars on the back.

    Yeah, there are a ton of Hawkeyes in Chicago, but I see less than I used to.

    Re: My Cyclone Mistake

    I was in Illinois last week, saw the Hawk shirt on the fellow with the paper bag on his head.

    Re: My Cyclone Mistake

    I just noticed that if you combine this thread, with the one about reducing population, and you just "ahem" eliminated the entire hawkeye fanbase, you could kill like two birds with one stone.

    I'm just sayin'...
