Best. Game. Ever.
On October 17, 2009 the #11 University of Iowa Hawkeyes came to Madison to play the University of Wisconsin Badgers. Along with the football team, many of our favorite Iowa Friends also came to party. All of our guests came up Friday night and joined us at the Great Dane for a couple of drinks. While we were not in Iowa City for the game, we had to carry on the Iowa City tailgating tradition. Most of us called it an early night to prepare for the full day of partying like true Hawkeyes. The Bessick household awoke bright and early at 5:30am. Much to my surprise, my girls, were ready to go. We were parked and unpacked, ready to tailgate by 6:30AM. While we had drink in hand at 6:30, it took some of the other Hawkeyes awhile to join us. Once everyone was there, a great time was had by all. Andrew and a couple other of his friends went to the game, while the rest of us went to Lucky's to warm up and cheer on the Hawkeyes. Iowa was victorious 20-10!! And Andrew and I are really glad we didn't have to get crap from all of our Badger colleagues. The Hawkeyes are now ranked #6 and 7-0. We are excited to see what the rest of the season has in store. Until next time, here are some pictures to remind us of the fabulous day!
