The Iowa fans have begun to descend on South Florida for Tuesday’s Orange Bowl. A bunch of them took over the Clevelander, an outdoor bar along Ocean Drive in South Beach on Sunday afternoon. It was quite a show.
They had the proprietors playing the Iowa fight song and everything.
It’s one of those bars they have in South Beach where almost naked women are dancing at various places around the establishment. One of them was having a big gold Hawk painted on her biscuits and the word I-O-W-A stenciling across her chest while I was there. (I shot video but I don’t think I can show it here.)
There don’t seem to be many Georgia Tech fans around. Maybe it’s just that they don’t wear the school colors everywhere they go, as the Iowa fans do. I’ll bet they don’t have as much fun either.
