    So, towards the beginning of the game (late 1st quarter, early 2nd) I was standing during some of the 3rd downs. Not just because they were 3rd downs, but at that time I was a little uncomfortable. Anyway.... I hear someone yell, "Sit down!" So, I turn around to see who this guy is yelling at (seriously not knowing it was me). I turned back around after not really noticing anything. Then, I hear, "Don't you dare look at me like that!"

    At this point, I'm thinking to myself... he is actually talking to me!?! So, I turned back around and said, "This is a football game. I can stand if I want to." He was around 4 rows behind me and he grabbed his program and STARTED COMING DOWN THE ROWS AT ME!

    I was so dumbfounded that all I could come up with to yell at him is, "I will call the police!"

    Then, my section started in on this guy. This guy behind the older man yelled at him, "She can stand if she wants to!" and seriously got into a yelling match with this old man. Other people were yelling things at him to. Finally, the old man settled down. This was mostly because the younger guy behind him was seriously going to kick his butt.

    In the tailgate lot after the game, in the dark, fans in our section came up to me and said they couldn't believe that that guy yelled at me and then came after me. I told them I was a little embarrassed because I seriously was dumbfounded and didn't know what to do/say.

    Crazy! (Oh, and Jeff was wasted and talking to the people sitting next to us. He had no idea what was going on until the end of the whole drama. Good think my peeps in Section N were sticking up for me. :notworthy:)

    I've had blue-hairs yell at me before too. F 'em. It's a football game - that's just the way it is.

    Better watch out, those programs can hurt .:smile: Sounds like that guy is in for a long season; any bets he doesn't sit there anymore?

    I'm in section N and saw the whole thing go down. That guy needs to get a life. Stand the whole game and cheer for State, Section N has got your back.

    I'm in row 11 seats in the 30s toward the 45ish yard line.

    I wonder what would have happened if the old man had hit me with his program? Headlines - "Old man hits woman at ISU game and Section N beats him down"

    Ha! It all went down in less than a few minutes. So, if you weren't right behind us you probably wouldn't have noticed it.

    We are in row 16 with seats in the lower 20's. so you're down and to the right of us. I kinda wish I would have seen this go down (and also known the old guy was picking on a fellow CF'er! Kick that guys butt!!

    Oh and the sad part is there were like 10 seats next to him that he could have "scooted" over and because I was the only one standing he could have seen just fine.

    AND - he was not too old that he couldn't have stood as well for the few minutes I was standing.

    My back hurt and I didn't want to stand. You are lucky my geriatrics doctor called me back to my seat or you were going to receive quite the licking from my program.:wink:

    There were some old people behind us that weren't happy that we were standing for over 3/4 of the game. I sat down around half way through the 4th because I got guilted into sitting. There were a lot more older fans in our sec (20) this year probably moved out because didn't want to pay for their old seats closer to mid field.

    You have to stand up on 3rd down. It isn't the theatre, you are supposed to be up and loud.

    No, it was seriously amusing! If it hadn't have been me, I would have the same reaction!

    I'd kinda like to know how old was this "old" man. Was he a shriveled up geriatric who needed to empty his Depends® or just some jerk who was older than you.

    FYI - This was not the section that the sheriff came up to! Or at least not the same part of the section. We are closer to the 50 yard line on the North side of section N.

    I just said I would call the police... I didn't actually call the police. Section N policed him for me!
