This is Penn State Homecoming Week.
If you haven't already figured that out, then I apologize - because I've been ridiculously neglectful in posting about this week's game and tailgate.
No excuses. Just Facts.
The game this Saturday is against the fighting (zookers) illini of illinois. Kick off is at 12pm, and the game will be broadcast on ESPN 2 (glad I double checked that one - would have guessed BTN).
illinois sports garb of dark blue and orange - check the grommets and stitching on your dungarees.
The current accuweather forecast is: Bright sunshine. Nice and warm. High 72F; Low 44F. Wear/pack layers and be sure to bring the sunscreen.
We will be tailgating in the overnight RV (19) Lot. This is our lone RV tailgate this season, so be sure to stop by if you can. Look for the checkered and "Don't Give Up the Ship" flags. Email/comment/message/call for more specific directions.
With the early kickoff - parking lots will open at 7am - but our faithful crew will be there Thursday night and all day Friday as well.
Our theme this week is "Tour of Pennsylvania - Celebrating Yuengling Brewery." - This is our 2nd Yuengling sponsored tailgate (see Pounderfest, 2009).
It's Homecoming, and what could be better than to honor Pennsylvania herself? We will be serving foods from and inspired by our fair Commonwealth, including, but not limited to: stuffed cabbages (golabki, golubtsy, holubtsi, töltött kaposzta, pigs in the blanket - whatever you call them); mini beef on weck; shoo-fly pie; ring bologna; cheesesteak roll-ups; Goldenberg cupcakes; chow-chow and other assorted pickles; chips & pretzels; and, a variety of desserts and snacks from all over PA.
As always, everyone is welcome. Contributions and tips are appreciated.
