    Actually I did some of this back in the mid-70s in Wilson Hall. Dropped bowling balls instead of TV sets however.

    I have an employee who named her kids Kinnick and Kayden. Both boys.

    I mean, it's not TERRIBLE, minus the Hawk connection, certainly there are worse names out there... Of course there is no Hawk connection, neither her, the father, any family, etc etc

    It took 4 drops off the MU parking garage to break a game cube. Tough system.

    I was in a bar in Iowa City 2 years ago for the Iowa vs. Penn State game. There was only going to be one play left by Penn State and everyone took out their phones to record the ending. Iowa was either going to win or lose on that play and when McSorley threw the TD pass everyone was incredibly mad and sad and experiencing tons of emotions. However there were a group of girls that were Iowa fans that kept recording and were jumping up and down screaming for probably 5 seconds before a group of people yelled "shut the **** up, we just lost you idiots". They looked so confused and it was hilarious as someone on the outside looking in.

    One time I dumped my roommates Tito's into my Hawkeye bottle and my Hawkeye into his Tito's bottle and he didn't notice.

    I was 11 years old and sister was getting a golf lesson from the Pro at Finkbine approx spring 1998. Streak hadn't been broken. Hayden was hitting balls on the range and my dad told me to get Hayden's autograph. I was reluctant but I did. He asked "oh are you a big hawkeye fan?" I said no I'm a cyclone fan. He kind of chuckled and wrote me this note. Seemed like a nice guy but bet he didn't see the butt kicking coming that fall!

    Like you were not already enough of an unlikable *******.

    My favorite was one year we were in the student lot up next to Elwood and the Iowa equipment semi was driving by and was laying on the horn. The light turned red and he got stopped in front of the students everyone turned and proceeded to chuck beers at the trailer. I will never forget that moment it was glorious!

    Our high school had a hawk fan... his nickname was "Summer", because like summertime, there was "no class" in that kid.

    The wife and I travel in Mexico, Caribbean & both coasts. Big inside joke with us is how many days until we encounter a Hawk fan wearing a shirt or cap. Always happens no matter how far we are from civilization. It's always laughable because the person is clueless as to how moronic and juvenile he is portrayed. Additionally, almost all are not college graduates.

    I ONCE ran into A Hawk fan who had a nice, full smile instead of the "some-are teeth" most if not all of Hawkeye fans have -- as in "some are missing, some are crooked, some are tobacco stained"
