BLACK HEART GOLD PODCAST 47: THE HONEY WAR

New, 6 comments

Back in 1839, the then-Iowa territory and Missouri fought a war over the boundary between the two states, a war won by Iowa when their steely glares and modern weaponry ("In the Iowans' ranks were to be found men armed with blunderbusses, flintlocks, and quaint old ancestral swords that had probably adorned the walls for many generations. One private carried a plough coulter over his shoulder by means of a log chain, another had an old-fashioned sausage stuffer for a weapon, while a third shouldered a sheet iron sword about six feet long") scared the Missourians into submission.

A mere 171 years later, we're playing football.  Bill Connelly of Rock M Nation and Football Outsiders joins us to preview the Insight Bowl and wave the white flag of surrender once again.
