    Yes, it is very cool and something to be proud of so let's support the COD by showing up in Sioux City tomorrow for the ISU/KU tailgate at Chesterfield's on Historic Forth Street!

    Hey, cool- Tim Lentz is a friend of mine. I actually lived with him my freshman year. Weird.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Iowa State on the White House blog

    Dude, Tim and I lived on Lorch-Russell when both of us were freshmen

    That said, the house is pretty cool, though they were putting the finishing touches on it when I walked through yesterday. May be going back Sunday

    Also went to an Alumni reception and saw the Geofforys and Jeff Johnson

    It was weird seeing Jeff and he wasn't leading a Cyclone Power Cheer


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Re: Iowa State on the White House blog

    FYI if you're in the DC area, the houses are pretty cool and I recommend checking them out. I wouldn't want to live in most of them, but some of them are decent, more traditional (ISU's and Minnesotas being among them)

    Some of these houses, like Rice university's, will be moved back and actually used for housing for a low income family

    Re: Iowa State on the White House blog

    I dunno why but I can only upload 2 photos at a time and it's taking forever just to do that.

    Oh well... I didn't get a chance to take photos inside since they were still putting on the finishing touches for inspections and weren't really open to the public yet anyways (They were kind enough to give me a tour anyways since I was an alum and drove 2 hours to see it)

    If I go back on Sunday I'll take some more photos... the chairs in the house are pretty cool (wood frame, with old seat belts woven for the seat. The back is removeable so it can be an ottoman or a chair)
