Middle Tennessee State

without comments

For anyone wanting something to do on Saturday, Encore is showing “I am Sam” featuring Spicoli. It is the saddest movie ever made and will make you feel bad for a week after watching it.

If that doesn’t sound like fun, the Tigers are once again hosting a directional school. Middle Tennessee State is the victim this week, and though they play better football than the mythical shoe-wearing birds, they will still be victim #4 on the way to the Tigers’ 6-0 start. Roar.

Kickoff is once again at 1:00 p.m., we’ll once again be there no later than 11:00. The early plan is for the family to all come out to the tailgate in the morning. Be there early for your chance to see Adelaide walking, before she tumbles down the hill never to be seen again.

Low-key on the food again this weekend, basically ’cause I don’t want to bother with it.

As always, if you’d like me to take stuff out to the game, just drop it by the house anytime Friday night and I’ll be glad to throw it in the truck. While you’re coming to the house, feel free to bring a sink, stove, toilet (also referred to as a “comode” in southeast missouri and no, it is not some french toilet brands infiltrating our language or anything like that), a few shingles, etc., to contribute to our addition.

Tiger football season is here and all is well. We’ll be tailgating at the same spot this year, Lot I, look for the TGRZ silver truck and a Black flag with a Gold M. If you can’t find us, just look for that flag. There will be about 1000 of them around the stadium but there’ll be over 50,000 people there. The odds are clearly on your side.

First home game is this Saturday against the Eastern Illinois Panthers. They should suck, so come out and watch a victory. The Tigers will be 6-0 at home this year, so get in on the ground floor. (and for those keeping track at home, that’s 6 home victories, 2 already in the books, and 1 over the mythical shoe-wearing birds to get the good guys to 9-3 without any upsets even).

Game time is at 1:00 p.m., we’ll be there by 11:00 for sure, likely earlier. It’s a BYOB situation, but if you’d like to drop stuff off at the house on Friday night, I’ll be glad to throw it in the truck and haul it there for you. Very little if any food at the tailgate this week (that we’re bringing anyway), but I can promise you a laurel and hearty handshake. probably even a few Harrumphs. If it rains, the game will still start at 1:00, I’ll still be there by 11:00, but i’ll be lonely.

Remember, you can’t spell “sucks” without KU. For those up north, it’s also true that you can’t spell “Nebraska sucks” without ku.
