    Nice compliment

    I went skiing today for the first time in 5 years and while getting on the chair, the lift operator looked at my hat and said to me: "I hate that team, they beat my boys". Not exactly sure who his "boys" are (if I had to guess I would say Army), but it made my day to hear someone, so far away from the mid-west, say they hate us.

    If you were in Colorado and it was a lifty I would assume it was somebody from Minnesota. Just got back from out there and allot of them are from there.

    Possibly, and I am just throwin it out there as another name, kinda out of nowhere, if it was in Colorado do you think it may have been an actual Colorado fan?

    Maybe I should have said where I was, but if you look at my user info on the side you will get a good idea on where I was and if you look at my sig you will see the lift.

    re: Nice compliment

    That kind of stuff always makes my day when it happens... as seldom as it is.

    I had to miss the Army game this year to attend a wedding in Seattle, and the next morning at the airport a TSA guy looked at my hat and said "you guys had a good win yesterday." Keep in mind, Iowa had also beaten Penn State on ABC Saturday night, so naturally I assumed he was confusing us. I said "well, we did win yesterday but you're probably thinking of Iowa." He said, "no I saw that game too, but you guys beat Army, right?" Made my day.

    Yhe GREAT thing is that since you don't know for sure, as far as beating them. It could have been a NDSU, Army, Kent State, Baylor, Nebraska, Colorado, or Minnesota fan.....lol

    You really are confused if you think there is a ski hill in Seattle (your only about 300 miles off)

    Think about it. Anyone who has been in the Army will likely be a Army fan and there are veterans everywhere, where other fans tend to be more localized. Beside, he looked and sounded like ex-army.
