Hawkeyes Battle Ohio State, Send 'Em Packing

Here I sit in Iowa City in the Old Capitol Mall in an internet gaming salon, surrounded by 14-year olds playing games in a darkened room, not a light in the ceiling, and lots of neon.

For an old guy, pretty cool.

Got to watch the Hawkeyes romp over Ohio State, 33 to 7 (scroll down a bit).

Yep, it's homecoming weekend for me and several law school buddies.

It's the old U of I, the black and gold, home of Herky the Hawk.

Went to the game (wobbly video) with my son, Michel, and his wife, Stacy. It was a cool 45 degrees, with a rather brisk wind out of the northeast. We sat in the southwest section of historic Kinnick stadium. My face is still stinging from the cold.

We left at the half, after the band played their halftime show, a tribute to, of all things, Styx.

Walked over to the Boyd Law Building and reminisced.

All in all, a great day.

Brisk fall weather, family and 70,000 of my closest friends.

Plus, we won.
