It's almost like you were there with us...

I tried my hand at using the digital camera to make a couple of videos so that you could experience Clemson tailgating and football for yourselves. The second one of the team running down the hill ("the most exciting 25 seconds in college football") will not load for some reason. It was a bit out of focus and wobbly but oh MERCY, I love watching those buses pull up and the team rubbing Howard's Rock and running down the hill. I get chill bumps every time.

First...An ensemble from the Tiger Band serenades us while we eat. I couldn't help but get a couple of shots of the young men tailgating across from us. They enjoyed LOTS of shots, if you get my drift!

I'll try to reload the second one again tomorrow...maybe things will be moving along on Blogger a little better.

Finally...a few photographs of our tailgate. Don't the fruit tarts look yummy? You'll recognize some of the girls from Lorelai's birthday extravaganza. OH...Citadel Friends...so sorry that my Tar Heels whooped up on your boys so badly. Mason represented the family in Chapel Hill. Oh shoot...what am I saying...we're not sorry...but you know I love your Dogs as long as they aren't playing one of MY teams.

  1. Looks like you all had a grand time tailgating. My daughters love to wear dresses, as I see Lorelai and her friends do too! The sign of true Southern lady. Those fruit tarts look delicous! I know Legare was glad that Carolina whooped up on the Citadel!
    Have a great week. Love & blessings from NC!

  10. Nothing is more fun than tailgating before a college football game. My daughter goes to Arizona State and we have such a great time when we go visit and take in a game. Fun Fun Fun!

  13. I'm always reading quotes in the paper by hs players who choose to go to clemson because of this running over the hill business.
    Glad you had a good time!

  17. How fun! Up until I was 5, we lived on the First Friday Parade route (do they still do that?), and it was my favorite day of the year! So, I have a soft spot in my heart for Clemson football.
