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
