No, this isn't a blog entry about all the Buzzards that circle Whitelees on fine days like today.
Today, The Iowa Hawkeyes football team go up against the Ohio Buckeyes. This is American football not to be confused with soccer (or as Joe puts it, metric football).
Ohio are a top ranked Big Ten football team, but Iowa are looking good this year. It will be a close fought game. Ohio shouldn't be overly confident about their ranking because they're going into an arena filled to capacity with well-fed and screaming Iowans. Kinnick Stadium is a mighty fortress and when the Hawkeyes are on their game, very few visiting teams walk away with a victory.
This football helmet was a gift to George from his eldest brother Ian who works for the company who makes professional football helmets.
I have a couple of friends who live near Kinnick Stadium. They can make a bit extra by allowing football fans to park on their property. D & R - I hope all the folks you have today pay double what they should and drink half of what they might.
