|Please pass me the cherry striped pants.|
The mighty Temple Owls soar into Beaver Stadium this week riding a 3-0 record. Yes, Temple has a better record than Penn State - I don’t know all the stats, but this has to be a rare occurrence -
Just as unique is game time: 3:30pm. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network and live-blogged on the700level.com.
The Owls, and their coach, Al Golden, fight fight fight for the cherry and the white, so expect to see peppermint striped pants and candy apple red clad fans. And yes, they do have fans.
The weather forecast is currently (an adverb that, this week, I can’t stress enough) high 67F low 48F, with periods of sun and clouds - and... 95% probability of a thunderstorm in the evening (according to accuweather). Yay!
We will be celebrating Bavaria’s 200th (and our 8th) Oktoberfest at the tailgate, serving up: roast pork & sauerkraut; beer brats; kielbasa; a variety of other grilled and delicious meats; german potato salad; pretzels; beer; desserts; and, so on.
With the attractive later kickoff, the parking lots will open at 8am. We will be there when they open the gates and we’ll be tailgating before and after the game. We’ll be tailgating in the Green Lot (please email or DM for specific directions/cell #s if you need them) - and flying the state flag of Bavaria (blue & white checked).
