New Football Tradition in Iowa

New Football Tradition in Iowa


The University of Iowa started a new tradition this year. At the end of the 3rd quarter, the fans turn and wave to the children watching from the top of the Children’s Hospital.  It is a small gesture, maybe even a token one, but those sick and struggling kids know that 70,000+ fans are waiving at them.  To be sure, it is a sight to see.

Joe’s Perspective: What can I say, this is one of the most kind-hearted gestures I have ever seen.  On purpose, these fans turn each autumn Saturday to remember those who are struggling. Not only do fans wave, but they also donate money to the hospital. These fans make the day of the children and their families. It might not seem like much, but ask those families how this gesture makes them feel. Their tears will tell the story.  Good for you Iowa, you just became my second favorite team in the Big 10.

Your Turn: What do you think of this new tradition?
