As the college football season kicked off last weekend most teams around the country have some sort of tradition. Either prior to the game or during the game that keeps the fans engaged.

The University of Iowa does something at the end of the first quarter of every home game that is pretty cool in my book. When the clock reads zeros after the first quarter players, coaches and fans from both teams turn to the children's hospital that overlooks the stadium and everyone waves at the sick kids that are watching the game.

The tradition started off last year and has continued to this year so far and will be an Iowa football trademark for years to come. Class act by not only the Iowa players and fans but the opposing team as well. Sometimes its the small things in life that make the difference. Now I want to go to a game just to be a part of something as special as this.
