NIU Flag
Does anyone know if you can get a two sided Huskies flag? Just got a new house with a flag pole.

Congrats. Don't get the cheap one on Amazon. It's one sided, poorly printed, and orange and black.

RE: NIU Flag
I got one from amazon that is 2 sided and the right color red but is fairly thin and I am concerned it won't hold up. But my HOA doesn't allow flags anyway so I just put it out for game day and then put it back in my garage.

I would try calling VCB to see if they have a 2 sided NIU flag. I looked online and they have a flag with grommets for $99 but there is no info as far as quality / 2 sided etc.

RE: NIU Flag
Since they don't usually have thunderstix anymore, it seems like they should sell little flags you can wave at games. Some of the bigger schools have something like that. Pittsburgh's (NFL) terrible towels, that kind of thing. If a bunch of people had them it would add a little to the atmosphere IMO - and without the noise that some complained about with the thunderstix.

You need to understand, however, that we wealthy and privileged donors would not enjoy the extra breezes created by the flags of you more common fans. We already got rid of the cannon because it made too much noise for our sensitive ears with thin eardrums. I will now write to STF and tell him to never allow flags to the proletariat. Sorry, but I am a pampered, well-bred gent and need my peace and quietude. Just sit there quietly and enjoy the game (and don't stand, please)!

Perfect description of some of the fans on the west side.

I'll never understand the taking shots at big schools, then wanting to be like them and finally complaining when you're not.

Waving a flag <> being like a big school. You take a few things they do right and incorporate that into what you're doing. End O' Subject.

Actually the "flag" part had ZERO to do with my comment. If anything I am pro flag. I love flags. But take it as you will.
