    2022 Football Gameday Shirts

    2022 Gameday shirts are here! Just got these hand delivered my a cheersquad member. No online sales. You need to contact a cheersquad member to get them before the season. Funny that they announced cheersquad members today and they stock them with shirts already. Think they are $20. Have no idea...

    Metinka Slater leaving KCCI?

    Turned on the news at noon to hear from Alyx Sacks that this is Metinka's last weathercast on KCCI. She didn't say what she was going to do. I just remember seeing her doing game forecasts at JTS a few years ago.

    RIP Dr. Johnny Fever

    2022 has not been kind so far. The turkey drop was my favorite WKRP episode. Gone at the age of 81 due to complications from surgery.

    Resting Heart Rate over 160

    So I am one of those plasma donors. Well this morning I was going through the regular check things with temp, BP, heart rate, weight, etc and the guy next to me was getting his done and it was taking a lot longer than normal. They put the cuff on the other arm and did it again must have been...

    Limited Concessions at JTS to Start the Season

    Don't know if this surprises anyone but read this from the email JP sent out. Wonder if they will allow you to bring in your own food. Similar to other organizations that rely on part-time service workers, it has been a challenge for Iowa State Athletics to rehire staff and fill key positions...

    Where were you when the derecho hit central Iowa on August 10, 2020?

    Kind of piggy backing this off the "Derecho One-Year Later" thread..... Wife and kid were at home in north Ames. Other son lived with some buds in house down by the DOT here in Ames. I was at BioLife in South Ames when it hit. They had closed all the shades but you could see out the front door...

    Bicycle Tires and Tubes

    If things happen in twos in term of flat tires on bikes, I think I win the last two days. Wife’s rear tire was flat yesterday morning. I had repaired it once and noticed the patch was a little wrinkled. Filled it part way and put it underwater and there were air bubbles. Took the old patch off...

    Food Coma

    Wanted to call this thread “2021 Tailgating Food”, but after I ate this I literally was in a food coma. Beer brats with carmelized onions and sweet peppers, sweet pickled jalapeños and other hot peppers, and home cured buckboard bacon bits from pork shoulder on top along with in the baked beans...

    Jeff Passan story on ESPN dealing with Mental Health

    Anyone else read this article? I couldn't stop reading it. I even read it again to make sure I read it right the first time. What a powerful article on someone that battled mental health issues that it lead him to the brink of suicide. Drew Robinson deserves to win an ESPY award for what he...

    Chris Street Gravesite Vandalized

    Just saw the story on KCCI. Iowa alum Beau Bowman was assigned the story. Pretty sad to see this happen to anyone’s grave site. Didn’t realize it’s been 27 years already and that he was from Indianola. I was kinda taken back though when they called him an “Iowa Legend” though. I still remember...
