Final Tailgate of the 2022 Season

Good day, campers!

After a scaled back (8-9 people) but fulfilling tailgate for the Michigan game on Breeders Cup Saturday (yours truly had a positive ROI for the 2-day wagering event, BTW), we return Saturday, Nov. 19 for the home finale as 20-point underdogs to State Penn.

Not sure that's enough points, but at least the meteorologists promise a dry and crisp low-40s with 10-20 mph winds for a game kicking off at 3:30 p.m., so nothing we haven't withstood before weather-wise.

Let's start our season-ending tailgate at noon. 

In an earlier text chain I floated the notion of smoking a turkey as our core food item, with Andrea and Pete chiming in with side dish offerings; if we have more people than vs. Michigan we could use a few more.

Please use comments for Saturday's roll call so we can think about head count and confirm what everyone's bringing.

I'll be solo (Kathy a scheduling conflict but figure Kaitlyn may show at our spot) and gave my second ticket to a friend, who I'd say is 50-50 to join our tailgate. 

In the meantime, here are a few photos from our day with Michigan. Scaled-back group but a really relaxing and warm atmosphere with great discussion. 


  1. My group will consist of 4 -- me, Adam, my neighbor Glenn and his son-in-law Brian who other than being a PSU alum is actually a decent guy, currently the defensive coordinator for Montgomery HS varsity football, and a strong corn hole player.

    I'll bring autumn rice, plus all the usual accouterments. See everyone at noon on Saturday!

    1. I will not be attending this weeks game.

    2. we will also bring a non-pumpkin dessert, maybe apple cider donuts

  2. Should just be 3- David, Jason & I. Besides for water, sodas & chips- let me know what else we need. -Dave

  3. Think I am out this week. Still not feeling great. Have fun!!

  4. I'm not going to be making to the game this week. Hope you have a great tailgate.

  5. Hi-just to confirm what I had texted the other day, we'll bring a sweet potato casserole and a pumpkin cake.
