*please sticky*

Ok, I'll update this as people reply.

Attending:
Me, Adam, Stef, Dante and Lauren, Jeff and Dean, David (+ Jen?), Bill, Gma and Shadow, Gwallia and his friends

Parking:
Ryan, David, Jeff

Grills: David and Dean (do we need to bring ours? if not, good, we only have 1 parking spot!)

Tents:
Ryan - 20 x 20

Food:
Ryan - chips, candy, "punch"
what do we want our menu to be?



We need to pick a place close by that people can leave their cars at. Unless I read otherwise, we'll start the tailgate at 2. So we'll meet nearby at 1:45 to all climb in together. Can anyone with a parking pass NOT meet at this time?

I don't have any tents, and Jen & I won't have any room for riders in the truck since it's a single cab & the back will be loaded down with the grill & equipment.

Food - Anyone for frog legs? I'll probably load up on dogs or burgers or chicken - I'll decide when I go to the store.....

I'm still trying to figure out the details. Looks like I might have to work, so Kara will be taking Shadow. She doesn't get off work until 4, so I'm gonna start looking for a parking pass starting tomorrow. SOOOOO, don't know about the tailgating yet. IF, and that is a BIG IF, I can find someone to trade with me, Shadow and I will be there at 2. Just a lot going on, and very hard to plan right now. Let ya all know around Thursday or so.

Ok, since Dante and Gma can't come until later, I don't think we need to meet outside Reliant any more. Bill, get in touch with me, we'll make plans.

We'll bring 1 meat to share and some chips and other snacks :)

After the last 5 days, I'll be drinking heavily :)

What time and at what location will the tailgate be?

Greg, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be on the Blue Crew corner of platinum.

Are you all sure the gates will be open at 2? Just wondering.

Is there a parking pass needed for this? Or is it just pay as you come in.

Parking passes are required.

I do not have my parking situation worked out yet (although it looks like I will be in blue lot), but will be over there as soon as I can...

Ah, crap. Well...looks like I'm doing some walking then.

That's actually pretty stupid. It's not like this thing is going to be even close to selling out.

I came up with a platinum pass through the Texans. They also have blue available if ya want to give um a call. Ticketmaster tries to stick you way out in maroon, so don't bother with them. They also told me they will have cash parking available, but I didn't ask how much, or where. Sorry bout that!

Hope to see ya all Friday night. I still won't know until the last minute Friday if I will have to work or not, so I'll have to play along by ear. Regardless, I will find SOMEONE to take Shadow to this game.

From the Texas Bowl newsletter.

While the Texas Bowl will feature a great college football the activities on game day will start well before kick-off at Reliant Stadium. Parking lots open at 2:00 p.m. on Friday afternoon and the pre-game party, TEXFEST, will open at 3:00 p.m.

Hrrmmm, then sounds like we'll all just meet at our usual spot :)

Someone shake a stick at Jeff and Dean!

I just found out I'm not going due to work. Damn it. I thought I was finally going to meet some folks on this board, too. http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r65/ShowtimeN15580/Emoticons/thhulk-773195.gif

Oh well, I hope you guys enjoy! Be careful. http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r65/ShowtimeN15580/Emoticons/7.gif

You folks have fun and raise some hell for me. I will be at a bar of some sorts drinking beer and cheering the Coogs on. Maybe Coach Jenkins can show up and show some inspiration training film footage (inside joke) before the game for the guys in Red.

Have fun and enjoy the Coogs kicking butt and then Sunday the texans kicking butt.

Just so you know, last year you could pay at the gate and park. Parking passes were not required. I am thinking it is the same this year. Not sure why the situation would change this year. It was $20 per vehicle in the Blue lot.

Looks like things are working out, I was able to get off work, so, I'll see you all around 4 on the Blue Crew corner.

Thanks everyone, last night was a blast! Even if it was a little chilly :) Wish we could have won, though.

Hopefully Andy will be found in time for tomorrow's game.

Wow! You are awake and posting before noon today? I would have thought you shut the bars down last night after the game.

Oh, we did. I had Lindsay bring me a handful of Ibuprofin before she left this morning...

Did anyone borrow my Texans beads? Red and blue, with a ceramic Texans logo?






Oh, and Dante, since you posted THAT pic.....

Looks like they are feeling froggy.

Serious question...Is that an official TCU fan move with the open mouth like they are about to catch a fly in their froggy mouths with the jazz hands out ~ OR ~ is that just a goofy "Dante-esque" camera face.

GREAT fun being with all my Blue Crew pal's!! I truly thought the game was sorta BORING, but, fighting with Justin over who had the cutest and skinniest cheerleaders was mucho fun!!:doot:

The best part of the entire night was being with my grandson! It was his first time to see a college game, and he had a great time. I have my doubts he will choose UH to attend though. He thought their football team sucked!! lol So did I.:tease:

Congrats Dante!! Your horny toads were fun to watch.
