Tonight is the Orange Bowl. The Hawkeye Nation is excited. Ok, by that I mean we are excited at my house! Paul can hardly contain himself. Actually, the buzz in our part of the state, anyway, really is all about football. We couldn't go to the game this year, but we did go to the Orange Bowl the last time Iowa went and it was crazy! There were 50,000 Hawkeye fans in Miami. People who didn't have tickets went down just to party. It was a little overwhelming for South Florida I think. We're having friends over to watch the game and I've made goodies (as if any of us need more food after the holidays!) including a yummy orange cake in honor of the Orange Bowl. Keep your fingers crossed for us and Go Hawks!
