Pictures, so it did happen.

So it turns out Saturday’s GTP tailgate was a real thing.

The Montana gang showed up in full force. All, it goes without saying, damned good Dawgs.

Hoppy is the gentleman sporting those super bad Italian restaurant tablecloth shorts.

We had a nice turnout of around thirty or forty folks throughout the afternoon.

Security was not called.

Seriously, it was a real treat getting an opportunity to put faces and monikers together. A good time was had by all.

Thanks to all who showed up to share in the festivities, especially those who travelled great distances (besides Hoppy and his posse, we had another guest who made it in from Dallas, Texas).

It’s time.

There’s nothing like heading up for a home opener.  I’m getting ready to go.

For those of you planning on attending Hoppypalooza, remember the festivities start at 1:30.  We’re in the Railroad Lot (#29).  Look for a crudely lettered “GTP” sign and you’ll find us.

BYOB.  And your bad selves.

Opening day tailgate logistics note

If you want to attend the meet and greet with Hoppy, things will get started at 1:30, which should give everyone plenty of time to socialize before heading to the Dawg Walk (Hoppy is!) and the game.

Assuming Verizon’s network isn’t overloaded, I’ll try to post something indicating where we are in the lot, but in any event, we’ll have some sort of identifying marker up for you to catch.

The Montana Project comes home.

I’ve known about something for a while that I’ve kept under my hat in order not to jinx it:  our man Hoppy, star of stage and screen, is coming for the opener against Clemson to take in his first game between the hedges.

I promised the man at the time that if he ever showed up here, he’d never have to buy a beer in this state and I intend to keep up my part of the bargain.  In that spirit, I’ve invited him to my modest tailgate that day.  He’s accepted.  So what the hey, you’re invited, too.

This will be a completely ramshackle affair, befitting me and the blog.  You’re welcome to come, but bring your own consumables – and some beer for the man and his four-person group, all of whom contributed to the making of the video.

We’ll be set up somewhere in the railroad lot just up the street from the stadium (I think it’s Lot 29).  Hoppy, as you might expect of someone who’s making his first pilgrimage to the Classic City, has several stops to make, so he won’t be spending his entire day with us.  But we’ll get some sort of formal time arranged for anyone who’d like to know when to come by and meet.  In other words, there will be a follow-up post or two about this.  Basically I just wanted to get an early word out.

Hope to see some of you there.

2014 Fabris Invitational news

Okay, I just set up this year’s CFB pick ‘em pool.

If you were a participant last year, an invite should be winging its way to your e-mail box as you read this.  If you didn’t play last year, but want to join in the fun this season, click here.

As I mentioned yesterday, the format is unchanged.  Each week, we’ll pick ten winners against the spread, with a tiebreaker.

Enjoy!
