being from iowa, I have come to expect certain questions when traveling. the number one is without a doubt, “what do you do there?”. and number two ..
“who do you root for? you have no professional teams”.
the person asking the question assumes it’s a negative. I, on the other hand, quite enjoy it. the state of iowa is home to zero professional sports. which leaves the decision up to me. the person sitting next to you at buffalo wild wings could very well be a texas fan, and next to him a california fan. then the person says, “well that’s sad, the state doesn’t have that comradery that only comes with intense love for their team”. I’d beg to differ. we take our sports very seriously.
plus I’m willing to bet the red sox fan living in new york city wishes he had the freedom to choose
no, we do not have any professional sports teams. but we do have sports. every sport you could possibly want to see.
including the iowa cubs, who feed straight into the chicago cubs.
and believe me, a day at the baseball stadium is much cheaper in des moines, IA.
much, much more to come from des moines, IA.
