Found October 24, 2011 on Shirts With Random Triangles:
The Indianapolis Colts' long national nightmare without quarterback Peyton Manning seems to be taking its toll on linebacker Pat Angerer. He's begun to think his alma mater of Iowa is its own country. "The United State of Iowa?"  Granted, years of reading Black Heart Gold Pants will convince anyone that Iowa is its own state of mind, and one that usually requires some form of controlled substance to get to (legal or otherwise). Angerer's comments on Sunday Night Football takes the cake, however. Declaring Iowa as a sovereign nation is truly an act of bravado that can only come after weeks of a kind of humiliation that even drafting Andrew Luck won't ever completely compensate for.  (via Black Heart Gold Pants)
