Rutgers-Howard Happy Recap

Rutgers honors America with the playing of the National Anthem - no one sitting 

The crew convened on a sweltering hot morning in the Walmart parking lot to kickoff the 2016 RU football season. Brave souls Bill. Scott, and Basil slaved over a hot grill in high humidity and heat to produce a great breakfast fare of eggs, ham, pan cakes and hash browns for the group of over twenty to chow down on.  A thrilling corn hole match came down to the wire with BREP & BRES narrowly escaping with a victory (on the last bag thrown) over the Bad Girls team.
Ready serve with bell and fist in hand 

The BRF in action !
In his regular ritual of reinventing himself for every new tailgating season, after a strenuous off-season workout regiment including a steady diet of Xbox games, BRES bring a new power packed beverage delivery with his Big Red Fist (i.e. the BRF) to add muscle to the Brepnation tailgate. The beers are even colder and tastier when delivered in this finely crafted Scarlet clenched hand (with a minor gratuity expected, of course, or deal with the fist of fury). Precisely sculpted to BRES's specific hand dimensions without affecting his dexterity even under sub-zero can temperatures, expect this newest tailgating sensation to begin to pop up all over the Black and Purple lot in coming weeks by BRES wannabes.    
Breaking out the big guns 
Rutgers Banana Guy!

On the way into the stadium, it was evident that new Rutgers Head Coach Ash was leaving nothing to chance in making sure to bring out the big firepower including the US Military and Rutgers Banana Guy, who appears well on his way to filling the void left by a missing in action King of Sandy Hook. After a rough start, and a tie at halftime, Rutgers rolled to a big win in the second half.

A big thank you to our photo journalist Julie W., who documented the day with the fine pictures shown hear on the blog.  
The Brepnation crew excited about the thought of next week's breakfast burritos! 
Next week is another noon time start, so expect to meet at 8:45 PM again at the usual place. Details to follow later this week.... 


  1. An excellent time indeed, and a fitting start to the new season.

    As mentioned, I will bring Southwestern Breakfast Burritos to the New Mexico game. I will also be looking for an extra ticket since my 3 will be claimed by myself, Sharon and our neighbor Donna. If we are to allow Donna's husband Glenn to join he will need a ticket either from our group's allotment or from a friendly scalper.

  2. I will chip in with a loaded tater tot casserole, Southwestern style. I see the Iowa game was announced as another 12pm start. While I love my egg & potato breakfasts, I am confident I will be ready for a hearty beef-of-any-sort tailgate by 10am on Saturday 9/24/16!!!
