Buffett Heading to Tahiti

January 2nd, 2010

A couple different articles report that Jimmy Buffett is dining Saturday night with old friend Ed Podolak, former running back for the Kansas City Chiefs and play-by-play man for the Iowa Hawkeyes. Iowa is playing Georgie Tech in the Orange Bowl at Landshark Stadium in Miami on Tuesday. One of the articles says that Buffett will be heading to Tahiti this week.

Ed Podolak is sleeping on a boat.

Well, not a boat, exactly… a motor yacht near Fort Lauderdale Beach, courtesy of an old pal at a local boat company. And speaking of old pals, the Saturday night itinerary for the former Iowa star-turned-analyst was slated to include a dinner with music icon Jimmy Buffett.

Podolak said Buffett wasn’t staying for Tuesday night’s Orange Bowl at Land Shark Stadium, a building that , for now boasts Buffett’s Land Shark Lager as its title sponsor.

“He scheduled over the Orange Bowl,” Podolak explained.

“Buffett will be in Tahiti during the Orange Bowl because he didn’t think the Hawkeyes would be playing in it,” Podolak said.
