Tailgate Report

As usual, I saw very little of the Blue Gold game. If by "very little" you mean "none."

Seriously, people, it was 70 and sunny, and there were beers. I was not leaving that parking lot. Other people can be responsible and do recaps. I will take brats and beer.

Blue Gold Game, Here I Come!

The car is packed, the beers are in the cooler and ready to be iced down, and I will be off to South Bend sometime in the next hour or so for the Blue Gold game, as soon as I feel that my presence at work will no longer be missed (I know it's getting close because I'm already getting mad about the portion of the trip where I have to drive through Kokomo).

Don't expect much recap, because I can't remember the last time I made it to an entire Blue Gold game (and I believe there has only been one time that this has happened). I think the best that can be expected is a tailgate report - which I can guarantee I will see all of.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a good time this weekend, and Go Irish!

Welcome to Baseball Season

Well, major league baseball, at least. The Irish baseball team has been playing now for awhile (racking up a 19-10 record on the season so far, 5-4 in the Big East).

I bring this up for two reasons. One, if you're in Chicago next week, Notre Dame and Northwestern will be playing at Sox Park a week from tomorrow (April 15). Ten bucks and free parking? If I lived less than three and a half hours away, I would be there.

Two, for anyone heading to the Blue Gold game, the Irish baseball team plays West Virginia the evening before. Grab your stuff and do a Friday, warm-up, pre-Blue Gold tailgate (though you have to hide your alcoholic beverages, just a warning - yes, that's experience talking on that one), then head to the baseball game. If I could possibly get off of work next Friday afternoon, I would be right there with you and/or hosting my own tailgate. Sadly, I'll be waiting until Saturday for food and good times.

I love the taste of Kool-Aid in the morning (even if the Kool-Aid is a day old)...
