I say Blue. You say White.

Tailgaters - we'll see you on Saturday. If you want to drive in with us we'll be meeting at the NLI at 0730 to convoy to the stadium. The plan is to park in the (green) parking lots behind the West stands (pressbox side). Look for the black and white checkered flag. Email for cell number(s) if there are last minute changes.


Remembering Virginia Tech.

Remembering those who were lost.


2009 Gametimes announced - the 2 game edition

PSU/the big ten has announced game times for 2 of PSU's fall football games:

The September 26th clash against iowa kicks off at 8pm - and will be broadcast somewhere on the ABC family of sports channels.

And, PSU's October 24th game at northwestern posts a 4:30pm (EST) start time (look for that game on ESPN or ESPN2).


Not Gone, or Forgotten - just busy.

Yes, we're still here - it's just been an amazingly busy April (so far).

We're knee deep in planning for the Blue White game - so check back soon for details and updates on the tailgate.

Currently, Accuweather is forecasting a clear, mild day (mid 60s) - but yesterday the forecast was "possible shower; high of 56" - so I'm not so sure...

Be sure to visit the facebook page for the tailgate.

Please email us if you did not receive an evite and (you'd like to see it, or) you're coming to the tailgate - we'll add you to the list.

As always, contributions to the greater good are appreciated; check out the equipment list to see what we might need.

All that said, we here in Philadelphia have been deeply saddened by the sudden passing of our beloved baseball announcer, Harry Kalas. He is the voice of not just the Phillies, but NFL Football, and so much more. We will miss his wit, enthusiasm and personality forever.
