Thoughts on the Nebraska game

Well we are 9 days away and I can't hardly wait. I am glad we have the week off and I honestly believe that it is a significant advantage for us. We have 2 weeks to plan and practice and review film. I also think that the playbook has not been completely opened and will be at this game. Matt and Carrie will be at our normal spot atop the parking garage and watching games on network TV. Thats right Matt is going to bring down a TV. They will get there some time shortly after noon and hand out for the majority of the day. t looks like the menu will consist of Kellys Brisket, Welker wings, Nates dogs and other assorted goodies. Lets all have a great safe time and toss one back for the moment that started all this.

A very hot 4-0

Another week in the books and the Tigers are 4-0. So nothing to complain about right? Wrong. HEAT. It was very hot out there. People we burned, the heat claimed post game tailgate fun and overall was a huge pain in the ass.

Enough about the heat. We had a new gnome join us this week. Winks came by and graced us with his presence. Winks is one cool cat. He even brought a cape for me. Oh and my name is now Stubby. Thank you to Kris for coming up with that. Matt forgot the tote this week. Sometime he need to lay off my pipe and think about keeping some brain cells for later in life. So we had no liner for the pee bucket till Jason arrived. I also want to thank Carrie, Jen and Jason for tailgating with us. They are a good time and I hope they had a good time. Carrie confided in me that she wants to come watch the Tigers kick the shit out of Nebraska. So to all of you reading this. WE NEED A TICKET!

That brings up another topic. ESPN!!!!!!!!! They are coming to town. The Nebraska vs Missouri game will not only be on TV. It will be Nationally televised. In PRIME TIME Baby! 8:15pm to be precise. This is also the Gold Rush game so make sure to wear something gold or Yellow. I know Matt will be wearing the luck yellow shirt as always but the rest of you need to make sure that you have something to wear.

That is all for now. As always make sure you are nice to your gnomies!

Tailgate Mañana

1 day till the next tailgate. Are you as excited as I am. The gnome will be rollin in to Columbia at about 9:30 or so for this weeks tailgate. He is particularly excited to welcome Carrie and her friends to the tailgate. BAD NEWS Chickenbone aka Sweatsuit aka Rain Man aka Kris will not be able to make it this week. So Kelly is taking his place. Kelly no offense but sweatsuit you are not. Particularly when he bought a new sweatsuit for the season.

As always we will be tailgating atop the hospital parking garage. Just look for the Johnny.

It looks alot like this.

1st Home game is in the books

The first post to what will hopefully be a regular blog of the life and times of the tailgate gnome. As the gnome is mute I "Pringles" will have to post for him. The gnome made his first appearance of the season at the Missouri vs. Western Michigan game. Needless to say that Missouri dominated this game and fun was had by all. Brad came down for his first game. The thought of the 5 gallon Johnny was disgusting to him until he had a few beers then all of a sudden is seemed genius. Jay, Jason, and Kris were all in near game shape and I fully expect for them to be at full speed by the time Nebraska rolls its sorry ass into Columbia. Jennifer made a guest appearance and her sobriety was at times sobering.

Pictures of the Tailgate will be posted soon. I hope everyone had a great time this last weekend and you are all welcome anytime you can get yourself a ticket.

Oh one more thing we need to name the gnome. Please leave any ideas about it as you see fit.
