an RU sports team get pulverized
Yesterday is a good reason why, personally, I'm looking forward more to a return to the tailgating environment than the actual football game, which this week pits our Scarlet Knights against the Buffalo Bulls.
They're 3-0 and probably better than the NFL's Bills at this point, having beaten Delaware State, Eastern Michigan and Temple, which by the way dismantled B1G colleague Maryland, showing just how poor the lower-echelon teams in our league are to start the 2018 season and how nothing is going to be a gimme for RU the rest of the way.
Probably a good thing we got our one win out of the way this season.
Anyway, maybe this week the coaching staff's going to discover that the Big Kielbasa is color-blind and hook him up with special eye wear, preventing him from being so generous to the other team; or increasingly clueless-looking Chris "Can't Spell SHeA Without" A-S-H will scour the parking lot tailgate pregame to find a guy that can get open and catch a football, or tackle.
In the preseason email I had proposed a few buffalo-themed ideas for a tailgate. These work?
- Beef on Weck, basically roast beef with au jus and horse radish on a special German bread. I can serve up the roast beef, maybe Basil can whip up some homemade horse radish from his garden, and Chris can locate us some German bread? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beef_on_weck). If not, we can always do onion roll or the like.
- Buffalo Wings -- with a group of 20+, chime in on the message board below with what kind you can bring; maybe mix it up with different varieties; or if someone wants to make 'em please speak up.
- Sponge Cake -- can take or leave this one, but do we have a baker of pound cake/breakfast cakes and the like?
Three Hobos (and Kaitlyn's friend Erin, if we've got an extra ticket) are looking forward to seeing the crew again on Saturday!
