So, a bunch of Canadian friends came down, single for the day, to tailgate and go to Syracuse football. Mrs. Potters Blog had invited me to tailgating and Cornell football later, so although I didn't go to Syracuse football, I did tailgate with these guys. Middle Ages Brewing is a must stop for anyone who wants FREE BEER, but since I was Mr. Taxi for these guys, I had to actually spend money on a six pack for home. These guys are all carniverous, masculine meat-eaters, unlike super-macho me, the vegetarian, so they wanted Dino Bar-B-Q for lunch. It is probably the best bar on earth, right there in Syracuse. It is such a great place they exported one to New York City. It is all about the sauce, though. If my friends were blindfolded and a portabello burger was put in front of them loaded with Dino Habenero sauce, would they know it was veg? Especially considering all the free beer and such? I think not, eh.
Those jolly fellows had a grand game, double Syracuse OT win, but our games here are special. The huge band, the acrobatic cheerleaders, the ancient stadium, the rain, wind, thunder and lightening--a more authentic college football thing.
