GTP tailgate shindig is a thing.

Okay, it’s on.

We’ll be gathered in our usual pre-game spot, the Railroad Lot that runs down Thomas Street towards Sanford Stadium.  (It’s lot number 5 on this map.)  We will set up shop in the portion of the lot between Williams Street and the stadium.  I’ll try to have some helpful signage up on the tent.  I’ll also tweet a shot of our location once our digs are set up.

Everyone of you is cordially invited.  It’s BYOB affair, although you can probably bum a beer in an emergency (admittedly, not having a beer can be an emergency).  All I can promise for sure is music and conversation.

I expect we’ll be there most of the day.  Don’t miss us.

Nighty-night time again.

Mizzou will play under the lights.

I’ve had a couple of emails asking if there was any chance of a GTP tailgate get together this season.  This might be a good occasion for that, if there’s sufficient interest.  Let me know in the comments.

“Stick to sports.”

To belabor a point I made in my previous post about Trump, the NFL and the national anthem (something that’s been largely ignored in the debate in the comments here), many of you who make the complaint in the header ignore the inconvenient history of organized sports’ involvement in politics.

Pete Rozelle, the commissioner of the NFL, and Spike Eckert and Bowie Kuhn, the commissioners of baseball, worked to put their sports on record in support of the Vietnam War, while laboring to silence those in the game who disagreed. While many believe that before the protests of the last year, the national anthem and other patriotic elements of sporting events symbolized unity, they are actually remnants of this campaign to interject sports into a bitterly divisive political debate.

Like it or not, sports isn’t some sort of safe zone from politics and it hasn’t been for some time.

When some of you tell me to stick to sports, what you’re really saying is that you want GTP to avoid the politics you don’t embrace.  Sorry, but that isn’t how it works.  Or at least it doesn’t appear to work that way when I see political observations injected into a comment thread about purely football posts.  I don’t have a problem with that; it would be nice to see the same courtesy extended in the other direction.  A little tolerance goes a long way, tone-wise.
