    Out of Staters: a guide

    Living out of state has afforded me very few occasions where I get to meet a fellow cyclone fan and shout for joy for latest hire or big win...hemm hemm, nebraska...

    I thought I would like to share my recent memory of fellowship with you, and some others.

    Just an hour ago, I walked into one of our local Trader Joe's and was surprised in the sea of hippies to see a dude in his cyclone windbraker (big red and yellow- hard to miss) and I shouted "GO CYCLONES, FRED HOIBERG BABY!!!" He chuckled and laughed to his buddy. It was fun, and I was kicking myself that I went with the twins cap instead of the ISU hat- both are blue...

    anyway- for the out of staters: the best is when you see a Hawkeye and smile and shout: GO CYCLONES!!! - they always smile until they realize what you are saying!!

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I was flying from DFW to Salt Lake on Sunday night and the ISU softball team was sitting at the next gate waiting for a flight to DSM. I talked to them for a few minutes to see how the season was going, and they seemed pretty happy to talk to a fellow Clone.

    thanks- fixed.

    Seriously, in the southwest, there are a bunch of texas fans and that's it, so I get overjoyed just to see a hawk fan that I can rub it in!

    I was outa the country last week and spotted a guy in a Michigan hat, he noticed my ISU hat and we both bonded over our pure hatred of Michigan State. It was nice.

    Re: Out of Staters: a guide

    Living in Austin, I have encountered more Cyclone fans/ISU alumni than I have Hawkeyes, although those that do live here are fairly ostentatious about it. Just last week I was cut off in traffic by a black truck with a huge Tigerhawk logo occupying his entire rear windshield. Although I can't be certain, I have ISU stickers/license plate covers so his douchiness may have been intentional (to be fair, traffic here sucks and douches abound).
