Well about a year after that Cubs game, I started dating Jason. Jason is from Iowa. Jason is a Hawkeyes fan. Jason was also at the Cubs game with a bunch of friends who were sporting yellow and black! I have had a hard time with this. Our first Christmas together, Jason bought me my own yellow Hawkeyes t-shirt to rub it in a little more. Isn't he sweet? From there on, it's been a little joke about the Hawkeyes. He's given me an Iowa item each year at Christmas so I am now the proud owner (and wearer) of 2 sweatshirts, one sweatpants and one t-shirt. However, I still haven't given in to calling myself a fan.
Tonight the Hawkeyes played in the Orange Bowl at 7:00 but I had an interview at 6:00. It was this afternoon, that I finally realized I was disappointed I would miss part of the game! I've always told Jason that as soon as we're married, I will make it official and become a full-blown Hawkeyes fan. It'd be different if I had a college team who I loved, but since I don't I'll (secretly) admit I'm kinda liking the Hawkeyes!
