    In defense of "old" Clones.........

    Man, what's with the bashing of us old guys - I'm 63. I lived in Sec N last night, no, I'm not the grump with the program. Don't even own a program.

    But I was up on my feet every third down situation - always have been. Hell, I was on my feet most of the night. So was my Hawkeye grad wife - about my age. We were sreaming for the Clones. So, off our case - we are hipp!!

    Old and retired is good - lots of time to party now!!

    Keep it up. Imagine if EVERYONE would make noise on EVERY down... i stand for most of the game, and def every down of defense. But i wish just once, just one time.. we could have every one of the 47000 voices in unison, yelling like hell.

    This is why I love being with the band. Nothing like on kickoffs especially, when 300 people are wildly waving very expensive pieces of wood and metal around like they don't care.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    Good for you, but how many other "old guys" are on their feet? I know that some of you have a hard time standing the whole time (heck I'm in my mid twenties and my feet were hurting) and I credit you for showing up, but they should not get upset if some else is standing.

    People standing up and getting into the game, makes the game more exciting. I guess the question is, are you a fan or a spectator? We want fans in the stands, not spectators. If you just want to watch, watch it on your TV- don't yell at the fans because your spectator.
