Curious about everyone's "numbers."

Yeah, that's right, I said it.

So?


How many Hawkeye football games have you been to?!

 

I am extremely sad to report that I have only been to ONE Hawkeye game, at Kinnick, back in 2006. I only got to go because a friend of my husband's had an extra ticket.

I was too busy studying on the weekends during undergrad to go to any games.

Then after that I just couldn't seem to get any damn tickets to the games.

I only paid attention to Iowa football on TV in spurts here and there (I'm very whimsical) until 2009 when I became SUPER OBSESSED WITH IT. My husband went to the game at Kinnick against Arizona, but I couldn't go because I was very, very pregnant and was worried I would get bumped or something. So I watched it on TV. And then I saw Ricky Stanzi for the first time. Siiiigh. Yes, I will admit he was what drew me in, but I quickly remembered how much I love football, especially since I grew up going to all of my brother's high school and college football games. I have very fond memories of getting to stay up late and celebrate the year my brother's team won the district championship.

I haven't missed a Hawkeye game since that Arizona game, not even the '09 game against Minnesota on 11-21 when I was in the hospital recovering from giving birth!! I know my "numbers" probably don't sound like much compared to some of you who might have been fans of the Hawkeyes for decades now, but I promise I love them with all of my heart and will for the rest of my life!

I'm vowing to get season tickets this year, especially because I am super excited for the '11 team, including all the new guys.

So tell me all about the games you've been to - at Kinnick or on the road -  and any special or amazing memories you have from them! Then I'll get to live vicariously through you!
