My e-mail to John Mcclain......
I am really ashamed that the Chronicle would do a poll on tailgating and not even include the Platinum Lot! The Blue Crew has hosted dignitaries from all over the world and fans from every team with most of them coming back for more fun. We have welcomed with open arms friends of sports writers and players never accepting payment (we have had many offers) from anyone for the experience. We pick up out of town visitors and make sure they are back safely to their hotels.
We may not have commercial sponsorship but that is what makes the Blue Crew special. It is a growing family of friends that make it work.
John, I would not expect the Blue Crew to win such an award because of the lack of sponsorships but I would expect the Chronicle to at least put us in the discussion and not act as if the Platinum lot does not exist.
To top it off, the Chronicle also stiffed the Ragin Bull Tailgate, also in Platinum! Ragin Bull and Blue Crew have been featured in Tailgating Monthly Magazine.
How many tailgates in Houston can say that?
What a sham!! What a shame!! I expected more from you, John.
