Iowa Footballs Wave Tradition is hypocritical in COVID times




In 2017 the Stead Family Children’s Hospital opened across the street from the legendary, historic Kinnick Stadium. The project had spent years in planning and construction. Fundraising for that was even linked to the soccer team through the incredibly popular Touchdowns for Kids program, which was even supported and promoted by some blogs go back more than 10 years.

Leading up to the season, a fan movement started online to acknowledge the children currently in the hospital by turning and waving at them at the end of the first quarter. And so the tradition of The Wave began. In short the school and team adopted it, officially. Both teams step onto the field to perform the gesture. T-shirts are sold. There is even a shitty country song written to be played as it goes on.

And it’s a very powerful thing to participate in. I’ve been a season ticket holder since the 2004 season, and I’m about as cynical as it comes, but when that stupid country song comes on and everyone in the stands starts waving, it’s reduced me to a blubbery mess a few times.

Part of that may be that Ive had 2 daughters who were served by the UIHC Childrens Hospital. Not long stays or anything, but enough to know it’s awful and scary there.

After last season, with no fans in the stands, The Wave returned last week with a packed stadium of 70,000 people playing The Wave between 1NS and 2nd quarters, and it just made me nauseous and angry.

There is still a fucking pandemic for unvaccinated people. And the kids the fans are waving to are the most vulnerable to the virus that those 70,000 only help spread.

It’s disgusting and hypocritical.

There are currently 7 pediatric patients in Stead with covid. It’s not about the kids in the hospital, it’s about making sure you feel good standing there and waving, actively hurting those who operate the hospital.

There are zero mitigation efforts going on at the football matches. No vaccine requirements, no negative test requirements, no mask requirements.


It’s not about the kids anymore. It’s a self-happy circle jerk.
