    Angry Got an email from my hogeye "friend"...

    At the end of the email it read...

    "Hopefully the flood drowns away the ISU season"

    How do I respond to that? Unfortunately you can't punch someone through an email.

    You take it with a grain of salt, like a normal HUMAN BEING would.

    How many ISU fans said pretty much exactly the same kind of things when UofI had their flooding problems? An awful lot.

    Well since the flood has already happened and is gone, he should of used the past tense of drown (Hopefully the flood drowned away the ISU season). Point out his grammatical flaws...

    (Hopefully my grammar is correct! )

    Shouldn't you have used 'have' instead of 'of'?

    Ask him if that was the official hackeye excuse for such pitiful attendance at last yrs men's games......didn't they get washed away in a sea of apathy? How many games of total combined attendance for both a men's and a women's BB game at Iowa didn't REACH THE LEVEL OF A ISU WOMEN'S GAME? Cause it did happen just that way.

    I would not even mention the last line of the email until after the game on Sep. 11. Then, if we win, bring it up and ask why eicc could not stand up to a team that was washed out by the floods. lol. If we do not win, your friend will write another stupid email, and you can respond to that one.


    Friends don't let friends wear black & gold. Build a man a fire, you keep him warm for a day. Set a man on fire, you keep him warm for the rest of his life. Set a hawkeye fan on fire, you make Iowa a better place to live.

    You ask him how many points he's going to give you. You can punch him in the wallet from almost anywhere.

    Re: Got an email from my hogeye "friend"...

    Two things my father taught me:
    1. Never argue with an idiot - people might not be able to tell the difference
    2. Little people think with little minds!

    It amazes me how Hawkeye fans actually think they don't need fans in their bathrooms!

    Maybe it's just me, but that giant ego on the other side of the state is due for a huge fall! ...and I am not talking about autumn


    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives…..
