Yay Football!

without comments

Happy Thanksgiving Tiger Fans,

On Saturday, well, you know, Football!!! and such.  Mizzou hosts Texas A&M at 6:45 p.m.  When the Tigers win to move to 11-1, they’ll earn the right to play for the SEC Championship the following weekend. A win will also give Coach Pinkel victory number 101, putting him in a tie with some guy named Faurot for most all-time at Mizzou.

We’ll be tailgating early, potentially with a heater involved.  Definitely with some food involved, courtesy of Jim Yankee of Flat Branch Home Loans (and Hoss’s Market).  They’re conveniently located next door to a brewery, so there’s another reason to call Flat Branch for all your home loan needs.  Food will be served beginning around 3:00, the menu will include:  Smoked Pork Steak, Rotisserie Chicken, Au Gratin Potatoes, Green Beans, and Coleslaw.  So, if bringing something, a dessert or snack item is probably a good choice.  

Not bringing extra beer is also a good choice.  After beating the Aggies (whoop!), the number two goal of the tailgate is to empty ours and the Messers’ fridge of tailgate beer.

Go Tigers, and go in to the game early to support these seniors, they’ll become the first Tigers ever to take Faurot Field with 10 wins under their belt.

I went to Vegas two weeks ago.  I bet on the beakers to lose, naturally.  Even more naturally, that was their first Big XII-ish victory in three years or so.  screw ku.
