It's that time again.
This Saturday begins the 7th Annual "Win Gimm's Gold" event. Last year, owing to Iowa's 12-0 football season, I gave away over 5500 gold.
For those of you new to the guild, here's how it works. Beginning this Saturday, my beloved Iowa Hawkeyes start Big Ten play with Rutgers. Between now and Friday, November 25th, with October 29th as a bye week, they play a Big Ten opponent. If Iowa wins AND you are online when I announce the winning score, you win their score in gold. I gave away 40 gold to each person online 3 times last year. It was a popular score, it seems.
Saturday, October 8th is a special game. We play the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Corien and I have a special bet on that day. The person whose team loses has to recite a poem in honor of the winner. Corien's last year, was impressive. It's going to be tough to top it.
I tend to give out gold Saturday night, unless the game is a night game. I have been known to wait until Sunday evening or even Monday to reward people who hop over to "Play Your Horde" night. So, what you want to do is root for Iowa to win AND root for a high score. For those who might be concerned, these are my own funds. No bank funds are used in this event.
11 a.m. Saturday, September 24th kicks off another season. I don't expect my team to go undefeated, in fact they lost last week. You should hope they do.
