Ah really, thats interesting. I actually have family in Iowa and years ago went to Des Moines to see them.

There is bizarrely a Boro connection with Louisville too. They caught my eye a few seasons ago with Teddy Bridgewater was their QB. I did a bit of research on the city and discovered that they have a bridge over there which is like a mini replica of Middlesbrough's Newport bridge, so the deal was done!
Ah,I feel your pain ! I do like the idea of having some sort of connection with the team you support as clearly you have. Thats how I sort of picked Steelers as NFL team. Apart from Notre Dame there isnt any connection with the other teams but I'll just enjoy watching the games and learning the game & about the teams as I go.
