    I will not be at the Denver game (boo!) plus a lot of people are rolling in late because of work.

    So..... Anyone in favor or or against doing it at the Jax game? I am sure we can find the time in between painting ourselves red? Only 5 days after Chirstmas? ;-)

    White elephant is at our christmas tailgate whenever that is. Very few (under 10) ever participate so I am not suprised that it is foriegn words to yall. Buy a gift, under $25 and wrap it. come to the tailgate, draw a number and when it is your turn go pick a gift. you can exchange with another person who has already picked something or go pick a new one. gifts can be exchanged twice before being frozen.

    I would say it was about 10 and it was awesome but it would be more awesome with a bigger turnout. We traditionally started this in a hotel saturdaynight before the christmas game. This is a definite Blue Crew tradition. I do believe the beautiful present Kimberly so proudly displayed to the parking lot for many games to come was a perfect specimen.

    OK, so we are officially holding off on the White Elephant thingie until the last game of the season (when we play the Jacksonville Jaguars), is that correct?

    If this is confirmed, I will post it on my site to help get the word out
