FORT DODGE, Iowa – When Rex Miller arrived home late last night after attending the Iowa football game at Minnesota, his wife was already asleep on the couch.
As Stacia Miller heard the garage door, she went to the kitchen and waited for her husband to enter. When Rex walked in, she said, “Hi honey, I didn’t watch the game. Did Iowa win?” Rex belted her across the face.
“Goddamnit, no!” shouted Rex as he landed a left hook on Stacia’s right eye.
Iowa lost to Minnesota 22-21 in what Coach Kirk Ferentz called a “team loss.”
Rex had driven to the game by himself early Saturday morning and drank several beers on the way home.
“Maybe I shouldn’t have hit her, but the stupid bitch just pissed me off,” said Rex. “I thought I was calmed down after we shit the bed up there, but I guess she just set me off. Really, I mean, how could she now know Iowa lost?”
Stacia said she was sorry for making Rex so angry.
“I guess I should have looked up the score before he got home, but I figured it was Minnesota and he told me they suck before he left,” said Stacia, as she tended to her black eye with a 12-ounce frozen T-bone steak.
“Now I know,” said Stacia. “I won’t ever ask such a stupid question again.”
Rex eventually passed out in his recliner chair after drinking three Keystone Lights.
