It was wonderful to see so many of you at the tailgate today!! In fact, let's see each other again on Monday!!
For anyone who is going to Opening Night, come on out to the parking lot before the game. This will be a low-key tailgate, with no grill, just bring what you have that doesn't require any prep work. Some of us will be arriving as early as 4:30ish, and the pregame festivities start at 6:35 (well, 6:30 for those who want to see Stomper's entrance in his smiling Chevron car).
We'll be hanging out near the same spot as today, which was the A Lot (north-east), near row 12 or 14. Come on by and say hi!
