Discuss the MVC through purple-tinted glasses
Hi Drake fan. Some of the other posters have given you a good description of Evansville, so my comments will be a bit different. Since I've travelled a bit, including to Iowa a fair amount on business, I'll just say this. If you are comfortable in Des Moines, or one of the metro areas of Iowa that are similar in size to Evansville (250k+/-)', you'll find a lot of similarities. The weather will be more temperate, and there are a lot of really good folks here. Best of luck on the opportunity.
We already have 'purpleredbird' (Aces and IL State fan) on the board, no reason you can't change your login name to 'purplebulldog' if/when you move to the River City. Just remember it's the University of Evansville or UE, not the other way around as seen on MVCfans and some of the MVC fan boards. Don't forget to grab a stromboli from Pizza King during your visit to Evansville.
