    Scoreboard weather

    Curious from anyone who was there. Did they show the drive-home weather forecast on the scoreboard @ Hilton?

    If so, how did it look?

    Yes, it was shown. Video quality seemed good.

    I'm sorry, but I don't remember. I know they did the drunk driving warning.

    Why would they have a drunk drive warning? Are you all of a sudden allowed to buy beer there?

    They gave it away for free, along with coffee. You had to go to the Cy Shop on the east side, though. It wasn't the football game on the concourse TVs that everyone was out watching.

    I don't know why they gave the warning. They did it all last year too. I thought

    OH!


    Maybe it is because they assumed everyone was drinking during the FB game?

    Re: Scoreboard weather

    In answer to the original question (I mentioned this in another thread too) yes, they did show the "drive home forecast" with Mrs. Wx on the video board. I liked how she said something about "all you Cyclone Fanatics out there."

    Re: Scoreboard weather

    As far as the "drunk driving warning" I don't think it was anything more than the usual PSA they do during games. Last year it was the speeding warning...it was pretty funny because it said something to the effect of "watch out driving home to make sure your odometer doesn't keep creeping up." Oh, ok officer, I'll make sure my odometer doesn't keep creeping up by driving in reverse. That might make me spill my beer though.

    Mrs. Wx on the vid board is a nice touch to any game.

    A little something I started during football games...gotta give a shout out to my Fanatic peeps. We'll also see you for women's games as well.

    Thanks for paying attention to it

    Nice insider touch!
    I pointed that out to my mom (who most likely will never be on this board) and tried to explain that anyone who was watching the game and saw that would post about it here. They watch all the central Iowa TV station news program regularly, so they will know who you are.
