Welcome to your 5th Annual - 2013 College Football Contest!

*Please enjoy the beauty, the competition, and the profound love that only college football can bring to our hearts*

I am extremely excited about the coming football season.
To date, I have 10 college football games booked to attend in person.
7 in Iowa City, IA
2 in Ames, IA
1 in Minneapolis, MN
August 31st represents a double - Northern Illinois @ Iowa and Northern Iowa @ Iowa State (night game).
One only knows they are hooked on college football when they attend 2 college football games in one day.
I will do my best to pick up a couple of more games when Iowa is out out town or their 2 bye weeks.
Northern Iowa (my home town in Cedar Falls, IA) looks to have a national championship caliber team this year and as Kurt Warner would know, they play all their home games in a dome.
P.S. - I will be spending a week in Ft. Myers, FL during the Christmas season with family!



Please enjoy the lovely lady and her #1 hit in concert! - RIP
http://www.last.fm/m...ow/_/Poetry Man -
Phoebe Snow suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on January 19, 2010 and slipped into a coma, enduring bouts of blood clots, pneumonia, and congestive heart failure. Snow died on April 26, 2011 at age 60 in Edison, New Jersey.
http://www.phoebesnow.com/ -  she gave birth to a severely brain damaged daughter, Valerie Rose. Snow resolved not to institutionalize Valerie, and cared for her at home until Valerie died on March 19, 2007, at the age of 31.
