You all know what I'm talking about: The St. Patrick's Day Massacre. Today is the 5-year anniversary of the last time Iowa played in the NCAA Tournament. The Hawks blew a 20-point lead and lost on a 3-point shot practically at the buzzer to Northwestern State.
I watched the game at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Columbus, GA, visiting a friend who was stationed in the Army down there. Most of the game was pleasant enough, with glasses of green beer flowing and plates of wings being devoured. After collapsing on the floor in shock at the end of the game, I staggered to my feet, made my way to the bar and ordered shots of Jack Daniels to try to ease the pain.
Where were you watching when the Hawkeye Basketball team fell into the deep, dark hole that Fran is working hard to pull them out of?
