    Harrison Barnes - official Ambassador of Ames?

    Just got my Ames Park/Rec fall/winter guide in the mail - look who's on the cover!
    Looks to me like HB's putting down some local roots for the next few years...

    And on a side note - what is holding up the trophies in front of HB? Why would this be photoshopped?

    The girl sitting on the slide looks photoshopped, as well. I remember in the old days when people actually posed for pictures.

    that has got to be some of the worst photoshopping I've seen. Go city of Ames! Should submit it to PhotoshopDisasters.

    It does look like HB is holding onto that railing though...

    Maybe he had the trophies made into a belt buckle?

    Nice cover. I zoomed in on the picture and it looks like he's just wearing a white LeBron Trophy t-shirt. I've seen them in black and this version looks identical. I would think if they wanted to have a trophy in the picture it would be in his hand. JMO

    I just talked w/somone in the Ames Parks/Rec department - he told me just what you pointed out - the trophies are on HB's shirt.
    Nothing in the photo is photoshopped - just a great cover!

    Re: Harrison Barnes - official Ambassador of Ames?

    Why do I get the feeling that having a recruit's photo on the city's park guide is going to lead to the NCAA finding and enforcing some obscure rule that results in ISU getting penalized?


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    He's an Ames resident and ISU has nothing to do with it. But I see your point and you very well may be right.
