So I was perusing The Sporting Blog this evening, when I came across an interesting story about the one and only Lane Kiffen and his monumental upset in some fake bracket in Esquire. Now I know what you're thinking: What does this have to do with Iowa?
I understand your confusion, but if you read the entire post, you'll come across this gem:
Kiffin's inclusion generated Amber Alerts from EDSBS and Doctor Saturday, which has seen him take a comfortable lead on Natalie Gulbis, who is the No. 1 seed in the "sports" regional. It also generated this post, which reiterates the previous two: America. Love it or leave it. Lane Kiffin No. 1.
Further proof that old Ricky Stanzi's infectious patriotism continues to spread like wildfire across the American landscape. Fifty years from now, I imagine we'll be telling our grandkids about where we were when we first heard the phrase that eventually became the national motto.
