Not California girls but Iowa Gurls

So I caught this video on You Tube today.  I've heard about it, seen some facebook posts on it but finally took the time to actually watch it in full.  I am a little confused, its funny, catchy, the rapper is pretty decent, but you make fun of the state you love.  But I kinda get it as most of the things said and done are staples of Iowa living.  What most of the country harasses Iowa fans about, is actually proved true in theory of who and what we come from.  Not all of us, but many of us have all experienced many of the aspects of this video.  Whether or not you think its dumb, lame, funny, or good... its a clever parody of the California Girls song.  The video itsself is pretty enjoyable especially when the one young girl messes up on the beer bong.  I mean, how many people do that every tailgate in Iowa, more than you know.  Anyways, catch the video here...

Stanzi City Chiefs Green Shirt For Greenwood

 It's always nice to see other fans support those who having unexpected events take place in their lives.  When owner Sean Thompson came up with the benefit for supporting a Greenwood cause, I also wanted to help give back to help support a Hawkeye.  I've donated some of the basic stanzi shirts as well but I've also created one shirt each in small, medium, large, x-large, and xx-large that will only be sold at this event in the Stanzi City Chiefs theme but in the color green.  Yes we all know that Chiefs don't wear green but the "green for greenwood" campaign at Kinnick was greatly supported and I thought, why not Green for a day for Stanzi City.  So these 1/1 shirts (except XL there are 2 made, one for myself for my personal collection) will be sold at the benefit October 18th in Des Moines.  Even if you are a proud Stanzi fan, the green may seem awkward to some who view it, but the cause behind it is much much more.  I'm not yet sure how they will be selling these green shirts but a 100 percent of the purchase price of these limited shirts will go to support the Greenwood cause.  If you are interested in purchasing this shirt and are unable to attend, I'm sure you may contact Sean at and see about the shirt.  Please also visit the page with details of the upcoming event and an auction for a wonderful Hawkeye memorabilia piece

Some news for 10-5-2011

Wanted to share this link for a benefit for "Green for Greenwood"  Please visit this link...  they have a great auction and its a good cause located in Des Moines, Iowa on October 18th.  I will be donating some Stanzi City shirts as well.  I hopefully will have a limited edition 1/1 stanzi city type shirt in each size that will only be available there with all proceeds going to the GREENwood benefit.

Also, an update on the Bo Don't Know Iowa shirt thru this blog.  Just worked today on some final touches with the design.  It should be available for Pre-order either tomorrow or Friday, it was delayed as some changes were made.  This looks to be another popular shirt so far from the emails I have received. 

Also, just posted before this a sweatshirt of the stanzi shirt.  Its not available on the order forms, but if you are interested in purchasing one, please email me at

Thanks for viewing the blog and supporting #stanzicity

Stanzi City Shirt Sales to benefit Children's Hospital

Recently, I proposed an idea of giving back on the Stanzi City Chiefs shirt.  I had contacted Mary Jane Stanzi about having a portion of each sale going to a charity of Ricky's choice and their thoughts on the idea.  I was contacted back and the organization to benefit from shirt sales will be the University of Iowa Children's Hospital.  You can visit their website link here

With the different options and price points of each shirt, I've decided that a minimum of 10 percent of each sale will go towards the hospital.  I've also thought of looking at other organizations as well for another 5 percent as well.   Maybe something in the Kansas City area or maybe even the United Way.  But for now a ten percent dontation will be made on each shirt sold.  I will post results as donations are made.  I will probably do this on a monthly cycle and post results as well and post photos of the donations made.

When Stanzi becomes a starter, I'm sure the donations will increase greatly on shirts sold.  If you haven't seen the shirt, please check some of my previous posts for the shirts.  If you have purchased the shirt I hope you have wore the shirt proudly as I have.

I also want to say a special thanks to former Hawkeye DJK for the support he has given on the shirt the past few days.  Feel free to retweet this or post on your facebook page as well by using the buttons below.

Again thanks to all and enjoy the fun with #stanzicity
