    'In The Zone' event cancelled

    Per the Rag:

    DesMoinesRegister.com

    The "In the Zone" arena show blending faith and sports and scheduled for June 23 at Hilton Coliseum in Ames has been canceled.

    Tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, June 15.

    Go to In the Zone - Home for more information.

    The event, aimed at men, had been planned as one of several similar arena gatherings around the nation with a "peppery mix of sports talk, strong opinions and fast-paced media mixed with ESPN-style music" meant to engage men "in a spiritual discussion of life and faith."

    Sports figures, business executives and spiritual leaders were due to speak at the event, including Spencer Tillman, lead studio analyst for CBS Sports' "College Football Today."

    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.

    Really? You mean they didn't sell enough of the $60 tickets?

    You seem to have a serious anti-religous agenda.

    Come on. It was funny. The whole world has gotten so hung up on being PC that you can't even make a joke anymore.

    I am disappointed as we had a pretty good group of people and was looking forward to hearing Chizik. So where do we go for the hooker party?

    Whatever happens, don't let things get out of hand to the point where your buddy ends up killing the hooker and then you gotta bury the body out in the Nevada desert to cover it up. That never ends up being a good weekend.

    Re: 'In The Zone' event cancelled

    Hey, guys, let's try and keep it clean. Some of the pics, slurs, and words used lately have been less-than-desirable.

    I'm not personally offended by this stuff (in case anyone thinks it's just a woman complaining) - my own mom gave my husband a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit calendar one Christmas. It wasn't a big deal, and I personally didn't care (even when he kept some of the "good" pics for later "research").

    What IS important to remember is that we have young Cyclones under the age of 18 visiting this site. I haven't been blessed with children of my own, but I can imagine that I wouldn't be incredibly pleased to walk in and see my kid looking at pictures of cleavage and reading homophobic or racial slurs, or just generally unsavory words. Please just consider whether you'd want your own child, or niece or nephew reading something when you post it.
