I remember watching Litterer at BoB at the ISU Center. Must have been 1990-ish. Several rows up, I saw a guy punching another guy in the back of the head. Just when I thought I'd seen the Dumbest Activity of the Day, the poundee turns to see who is hitting him in the back of the head.
Of course, now he's getting punched in the front of the head, and it's over about 5 seconds later.
Litterer sounded good, though.
I still blame Horatio Sanz for the riot in 04. Just started the whole weekend off on a bad note.
In '09 some guy had a moped in our apartment complex courtyard full of people. The only logical thing to do was light a mattress on fire and set up a ramp.

Got my handle of Hawkeye, gonna cruise down Friday afternoon. Let the games begin.
2 tests down, 1 to go. One of my busier weeks of the semester. Oh well.
MissouriClone and I ditched a couple beer cans on campus Tuesday night hoping to see them on our walk to classes today, but no dice. Someone picked them up... fun wreckers.
i think it is overrated i get drunk every weekend doesnt have to be an occasion to drink
VEISHEA isn't just awesome because you get really, really drunk. It's also fun because there are soooo many people just walking around completely *********. There is carnival food on campus. Live music north of campus. And the cops don't give a **** about what you do! It is sooo much different from just any other weekend.
Now that i've been out a few years? I come as much for the friends that come back to ames that weekend as anything. Its a spring version of Homecoming, and its great to see some of my friends that i dont get to see but a couple days a year anymore thanks to them moving all over. Most of them were also drinking friends, so its good to have some beers with them again as well.
I think 2006 and 2007 were the best VEISHEA's ever since the 04 riots. Those years had weather in the 70-80's with sunny skies, good concerts spread around central campus on 3 different stages, and insane amounts of people. We had huge house parties on Welch and Wood st those years. Some of my favorite memories of college come from those 2 weekends. Oh how I miss that...
