While the rest of you prepare for the Backyard Brawl, I am getting excited for the Mountaineers basketball match up with Iowa in Vegas.
The game is 3 years in the making, as WVU was supposed to play #3 seed Iowa in the 2nd round of the NCAA tournament in Detroit in 2006. However, a circus shot at the buzzer by Northwestern St. essentially allowed WVU to become one of the only teams in history to advance to the Sweet 16 before even playing a game.
Minus Steve Alford and John Beilein, it looks like the corn-growers from "it's not Heaven, it's Iowa" finally get to play "almost Heaven West Virginia" in the battle for Heaven on Earth.
But honestly, that's not exactly what excites me. You see, what you probably don't know is that for Iowa fans, Sin City is whatever bathroom stall city the Hawkeyes are currently in, as evidenced by these Hawkeyes who channeled their inner Larry Craig.
A couple of University of Iowa fans took a break from Saturday's game at the Metrodome against the University of Minnesota to have some illicit sex in a Dome restroom, police said.
The duo — a 38-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man from Carroll and Linden, Iowa, respectively — turned a handicapped toilet stall into their love nest about 8:30 p.m., late in the Hawkeyes' 55-0 trouncing of the Gophers.
A crowd of intoxicated fans gathered in the restroom to laugh and cheer the off-the-field action, until an Avalon Security guard tipped off University of Minnesota police to the ruckus.
Officers had to interrupt the intimate moment to cite the couple for indecent conduct, a misdemeanor.
University of Minnesota Police Chief Greg Hestness said similar citations at the Metrodome or on campus usually involve public urination.
He said it was the first time in his six years at the U that his force has interrupted a sex act during a Gophers game.
Hestness assumed the woman was embarrassed about being caught: She initially gave a false name to officers andhad to be identified by her husband before she was released.
The man was attending the game with his girlfriend, according to police.
"It's a long ride back to Iowa," Hestness said.
It seems bathroom stalls in Minneapolis get more action than Charley West's gimp-dungeon room.
No word yet on whether they used a glory hole.
