I won't be there until around 4:30 or so. Not planning on anything major at all, maybe nothing at all. It's gonna be HOT and I plan to go inside as soon as the gates open. PLUS, I wanna see our boys warm up. Really excited about this season!!

Just curious here - Is anyone going to be cooking? As hot as it is, I was wondering if I even need to bring the grill.

Also - I won't be able to make it prior to 4pm due to work.

Let me know if we need the grill - and if someone wants to cart it out there so it's there at 2pm, I can arrange that.

We probably won't show up until 4 either and will probably bring something precooked. Too hot to do otherwise.

Well guys, I have some lower back issues so I can't bring the grill. If someone wants to come by and take it out let me know.

In all honesty, I don't see a lot of people cooking at this one anyway.

I got a Generac 2000 watt from Costco. Not as nice or quiet as a Honda, but has Costco's lifetime return policy. Had to order it online, so we won't have it for Monday.



Errrrr, I've been assuming, is David bringing his grill?

No, his back is out of whack, and it's gonna be bat insane hot, so don't think anyone is going to be grilling up any food. Most of us will be late coming in from work and most of us likely won't stay the entire game.

It's pre-season and it's HOT....

1 grill it is. We will be there around 4 or 4:30, depending on how quickly I can get the troops moving.

I had to go to work today, first day for staff to report to school. :(
