Last weekend a group of us went from work went to see the Notre Dame vs BYU game. It was unfortunate that the guy heading it up wasn’t able to go because of a family emergency, but we still made the most of it. I drove a group of 3 other guys, and we were on the road at 6:30AM. We stopped a few times (McDonald’s and then a grocery store to get a pre-ordered sandwich and chicken), and then cracked open our first beers sometime around 8:30AM.
We then proceeded to drink, eat, and be merry till kickoff at 1:30. During this time some other guys from worked showed up who brought even more alcohol (read: vodka and Jaegermeister). One of the highlights was one of the guys being body slammed twice in the back of the neighboring tailgater’s pickup.
The game wasn’t that excited, and there was absolutely no room in our seats, so we decided to head to the bar sometime around halftime. Stayed there for a bit, went back to the tailgate, then headed home.
Driving by US Cellular field we saw the fireworks from Dye’s homerun in game one of the World Series. We sort of chanced it, by going that way instead of taking Lake Shore (US 41) all the way up, but since the game had already started, it wasn’t that bad. Someone I managed to watch the Sox win without falling asleep. I think it had something to do with the hangover I was starting to get at 9 at night.
