How close can we expect to get to the stadium without anything reserved? Going to be there super early.

Previously I had always done the art building (about 200 yards closer than if we were at Hancher). In college it had the advantage of getting about 4 total cops throughout the whole season and after graduating it was just an easy place to go. That said, if we have 12 hours we might as well get as close as possible.
We'll be around the front spots of the back yard lot of 707 melrose if you want some high fives, beers and tugs (Bovert).

My regular spot is no more unfortunately. The Marengo group kind of disbanded so we'll figure it out more after this weekend but probably spend most of the time around @r4hawks tailgate.

Cum one, cum all.
We're next door to R4. Going to get up there as soon as I can after grandma's funeral.

Nice. We will hopefully be as close to that as possible without, you know, working it out beforehand

Not sure if they have graduated yet but the students that live right there always have their parking spots up for sale. They are usually on the expensive side but if you need a spot, they should have some.

I have a mental picture of you yelling from the pews, "Hurry up and wrap this thing up...the Hawks are playing tonight."

It'll be a bit, but I'm parking in that garage and walking across the street.

Probably do joes/Deadwood first though.

Also, have to run up and scalp a couple tix.

For someone who was barred from seeing Drumline as a boy, you’ve turned into quite the impressive young man.

I'm wearing my gameday shirt I've worn to roughly 100 games. Buttons don't button anymore, it's shrunk quite a bit and some random jager stains.

But it smells like gameday.

That sounds horrible. Take some meds and lay on the couch. Order an obscene amount of your favorite delivery food and just chill.

Or drive to Iowa city, walk around, sit in a stadium for a few hours, start feeling shitty again, then dread the trip home.

Your call bisquick.

In order to avoid escalating the situation, you could respond by making a self-deprecating comment that pokes at your weight. E.g., "I like pancakes" or "I could really go for some pancakes right about now."

I agree on both fronts.

Waffles have tiny square compartments to hold peanut butter and syrup. I like that.

I'm just starting to feel human again this morning after a week of battling a nasty cold virus. Nothing a couple shots of Cedar Ridge can't help though

Yeah, I'm pretty sick of this. Hurts to take a deep breath. Cough. My chest and back hurts. Starting to lean toward staying home. Odds down to 50/50.

Remember, they have added an hour or so to college football games without adding any actual football. With traffic, you’re probably looking at a 1:00 a.m. bed time, even with a 6:30 kickoff.

The odds were always 50/50.

Not in my case. According to Google, I am looking at 33 minutes to 707 Melrose. #ccmf

We are looking to get some light showers this evening though, so will be bringing a jacket
