How Minnesota made me lose at Trivial Pursuit

I still bear a grudge about this...

About four years ago my (then) boyfriend and I were playing a rousing game of Trivial Pursuit on my PS2, and were tied for the very last piece to win... He somehow (with his font of sports related knowledge) managed to make it all the way to the end without getting his green (Sports & Leisure) pie-piece. We had been going back and forth for about twenty minutes and were both thoroughly frustrated when he received this gem:

Q: Who do the University of Iowa Hawkeyes play every year for the "Floyd of Rosedale" Trophy?

I screamed, I cried and flipped off the television. I disturbed the neighbors with my language...

He picked himself up off the floor from laughing so hard, pressed "square" and cemented my defeat.

If ANYONE but a true Iowa fan would have gotten that question I would have won... I blame Minnesota for this, because this is HATEweek and I can goddamn it.
