I will get the answers and relay them to you Blue Crew. Here is my latest email to JM.
John, I am not trying to get you to change any rules or the contest itself as we in the Blue Crew are very laid back in that regard. That being said I was looking at www.Chron.com the other day when I ran across a Tailgate competition and a Poll as to who was the best Tailgate. As you are aware I am a member of a great Tailgate that has been situated in the corner of the Blue/Platinum lot for the entire existence of the Texans as a Football team. We have no corparate sponsorship and have done this individually since we decided to come together. When I looked at the list of the tailgates in the poll on www.Chron.com I was taken with suprise that we at the Blue Crew had nary a whisper of mention when there were so many other fellow Tailgates in the poll. When questioning wether we were elegible we were told that the platinum lot was all corparate sponsors and the Chronicle wanted tailgates that were not sponsored. Well I know that a few of the Tailgates listed are Sponsored when in fact we at the Blue Crew are not. Not only were we at the Blue Crew left out of the poll but another Famous Texan Tailgate "the Raging Bull" were left out as well. I am not one to have any buisness dealings with the Raging Bull but I am sure that they feel as bad as we do about being snubbed by this poll. John, I have a lot of People that make up my tailgate somewhere in the numbers between 60 and 120 per game and it is them that I am trying to get an answer to. I cannot even think of how I could do this alone as it takes every last member of the blue Crew to make it work and I take it as my responsibility to try to get an understanding as to why we are left off of a poll that we have worked very hard to be a part of. I appreciate any info you can relay to me and thank you for taking the time to listen to what we had to say. On behalf of the Blue Crew I say Go Texans! Joe Texan
you guys and gals let me know if I need to say anything else
