    I ran over a red cardinal today.

    Is that a bad omen for our upcoming football season?

    Was it wearing a baseball jersey with the number 5 on it?

    We're nicknamed the Cyclones, so I think we're good. Cy will probably just sprain his ankle the first game or something

    Re: I ran over a red cardinal today.

    did you blow a tire immediately after? My first thought was your car is now totalled and the cardinal was not affected.

    Re: I ran over a red cardinal today.

    Only one way to fix this, must run over a Hawkeye and a Husker! Wait - you mean a husker is actually a person and a Hawkeye is well, what exactly is a Hawkeye? Its quite a dilemna, edit - running over a chicken hawk and eating a dozen sweet corn should right this wrong!
