2023 Season Opener on Sunday!

It'll be great to see everyone as a group again as Rutgers kicks off the 2023 football season by hosting Northwestern on Sunday at noon, a new spin on interfering with everyone's Labor Day weekend!

Burks, Hobos at the track
Summer moved quickly and has been a blast but there's plenty of time and presumably great weather as the Scarlet Knights begin the campaign with 3 straight home games (Temple on Sept. 9, Va. Tech on Sept. 16) and a front-loaded home schedule of 7 at SHI* Stadium.

A text chain was started already with early plans on tailgating vs. the Wildcats. 

I've asked Festmeister Skurat to meet at my house at 8a, so I expect to be in Black Lot around 8:45 a.m.

Beyond the heated debate over the best of Barker's Beauties and people catching up on Dana's daily AAU rumor mill, it seemed folks want to keep it simple on Sunday with a recommendation of burger and ribs, if memory serves. 

If that's the case, let's get a list started in the chat on headcount and who's bringing what. 

Whichever direction we take on menu, I'll whip up a tray of homefries. 

If breakfast is a preference, the Jersey tomato-pork roll casserole is an easy make and reheat but everyone please weigh in if grilling is the preference and easiest. 

Else let's keep to BYOB and some sharing.

Let the good times (at least tailgate-wise, not sure about on the gridiron) commence with roll call!
