Why are Iowa Hawkeye football fans lucky the Orange Bowl is not being played indoors?
They won't have to attempt to take an 18-foot pole through revolving doors.
"POST PATTERN:  Luckily for Iowa fans, the Orange Bowl is played outdoors. You might remember that Hawkeyes' fans celebrated a win over Minnesota by tearing down a goal post and trying to take it out of the Metrodome in Minneapolis. Said Bill Lester, whose company manages the Metrodome, 'I guess you have to be from Iowa to attempt to take an 18-foot pole through revolving doors.' "
