It’s not your fault James.
Nothing in Keokuk can prepare you to have the weight of our obese state on your shoulders. The biggest challenge you faced as a youth was telling your friends to stop staring at your mom’s bra strap. You dominated South East Iowa high school football because it’s South East Iowa football. What could have possibly prepared you for the glare of
[QUOTE=GhostofBTT;948010]Alcohol can erase memories, but it cannot erase shame. One can drink to celebrate, but, more often than not, one will drink to forget.

Iowa’s win over the power house Minnesota program shows us, that while the moment was euphoric, the cold light of day
[QUOTE=GhostofBTT;921428]Things get away from us from time to time. Sometimes, you want to hit happy hour with the boys, and a few drinks after work suddenly transforms into a rejected sequel for “The Hangover”. What was supposed to be leisurely and pleasant, results in you waking up some place you don’t recognize with the taste of diesel fuel in your mouth and a deuce and a half face down three feet away.
And sometimes you have a bad day and Iowa loses to Central Michigan.
