    Parquet Floor

    Watching the Celtics game and their floor makes me miss our parquet floor in Carver from the good 'ol days. I think it really set us apart from other schools and gave us an identity when we were on national tv. Even the bright gold paint would look good in HD although the black paint is sufficient.

    Mediacom logo would kill the parquet. I do miss it though. I grew up watching the Hawks play on that thing of beauty.

    Did you hear Mediacom was voted the worst cable company in America? Some sponsor Gary...

    That mediacom logo is awful. It's embarrassing to look at. When I went to the first CR Titans game, I saw the logo on the field and about threw up. Terrible decision to allow that on CHA floor.

    Re: Parquet Floor

    Am I missing something here? I thought Carver still had parquet floors:
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODvDAoqmuRA&feature=relmfu"]Iowa Runs by Flyers in 1st Round NIT Victory - YouTube[/ame]

    Still obviously a checkered look to the floor as of our most recent home game (or did they announce a change to the floor?).

    That said, I guess it's ok but I've never been that big a fan of it, to be honest.

    Real men play on asphalt or cement. I don't know why Francis is coddling these guys.

    BOBBY: Why do you have to hate what you don't understand?
    HANK: I don't hate you, Bobby.
    BOBBY: I meant soccer.
    HANK: Oh. Oh, yeah, I hate soccer. Yes.

    Thats definitely parquet. Maybe the stain was darker? Thanks for clarifying.

    I wish they would bring back the Tigerhawk logo at the center of the court. How are we supposed to know it is Iowa's court?
