    Tonight is the night

    Will be popping the big question to my girlfriend in front of her family, my family & friends.

    She was a die hard Hawkeye fan but now has seen the light and the Cyclone nation has grown by +2 in population. She will be attending her first ISU football game in KC.

    Next step is to get her to start reading these forums as she only reads the *********.com one.

    This, I did unspeakable things when I was trying to impress my wife, I did the dishes, I kept the house clean, I asked how her day was, unspeakable things. Obviously that didn't last.

    Bull....It is exactly the opposite. Once converted to Clone, they never go back. I grew up in huge hawk country and cheered for them my whole childhood. I saw the light and attended ISU, and I can`t stand the feathery `stards!

    I'm glad you're not superstitious. It is Friday the 13th, after all.



    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    I hope she doesn't just decide to read CF today.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I hope you asked her father... because popping the question in front of her family without their approval is, well, probably not a good idea.

    Hope you had fun going to all the bars with your friends. That will end now. Good luck though.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Converted my wife also, as she grew up 25 miles from Iowa ****** and didn't know any better. Congrats and good luck.

    How has the Cyclone nation grown by +2 if she was the only one who converted? Is this a shotgun proposal/wedding?

    I converted a Hawk grad to and ISU fan, now I am working on her family lol.

    Good luck doing it in front of everyone, not my style. I did it privately after we got home from eating at Aunt Maude's. Also, I didn't ask her father, I thought it more appropriate to ask her daughter and everyone thought that was sweet of me (Big bonus points).
