Who let the Hawks Out?

Memories come flooding back when I read this title. Back in the early 2000's, they would play "Who let the dogs out?" at Iowa Hawkeye basketball games. Of course, changing dogs to Hawks was incredibly innovative at the time. It was super cool when I was in junior high, but has quickly become a pathetic attempt in hindsight. 

Alas, as fall is in full swing, Hawkeyes are on the mind. I'm admittedly not much of a basketball fan, but I love college football. It is a core part of my autumn buzz! 

A few weekends ago, I finally caved and did a little fall decorating, but even with all the cute candles and wheat, something was missing... 

It was time to bust out my black and gold sign of support! I was all jazzed until I pulled it out of storage. . . It had faded to the point it wasn't even remotely yellow anymore! I put a bit of real yellow next to it to show how much it had faded. :( 

I figured I had some yellow acrylic paint lying around and some fine-tip brushes, so why not make it new again? 

It took a few more coats than I thought it would- but good as new! :)  

Check out the trademark symbol to see the difference!  


So now I can display my Hawkeye pride once more... and hopefully it will distract from our old siding. :) 

I will be at the game this weekend on Halloween day, so if all goes well, I will be a zombie fan. I will also try my darnedest to get my dad to dress up as well, but slim chance there! 

Let's Go Hawks!
