Friday

This was our first in-person blue/white game since 2019. The last two years of pandemic had canceled this event and replaced it with a very lackluster virtual event.

This year will be different. A normal blue white weekend was scheduled and digital parking passes were sent out in March. We were told that these would only be for blue white.
Official Stats
Guests: 25
RVs: 2

Larry, Tina and their dog Kuno opted in to join us in the RV lot. Met Rich, Nell and Nathan at home depot in State College around 8:30 PM and caravanned to RV lot. Parked in the end of row 4 and 5. Larry’s transmission wouldn’t go back into gear after we got into the RV lot, so I had to tow him into a spot after I got unhitched.

We had some shots on Rich’s tailgate and got things loaded up for tomorrow.

Saturday

Rich and I headed out of the RV lot at 8 am to meet the group over at the NLI. For the morning convoy at just after 8:15.

Jessi, Suz, Cari, Mare, Maddy joined us and we headed over towards the stadium. The lot was still closed, and there was no waiting on the road, so we pulled into central distribution services and waited for about 20 minutes for the lots to open.

The digital parking passes seemed to really slow down the process and the guy parking everyone at the end of the row was alternating sides of the aisle, as if he’d never seen groups come together. Our group got separated between both sides of the aisle and around a median, but it was just fine. The grumpy Santa Claus and his parking minions were quickly on to the rest of the row.

We ended Spot 1555 and set up canopies and the kitchen before the rain started. The day seemed like it was going to be a cold wash-out, but we were still staying dry while enjoying Donuts, hot coffee, mimosas and hard coffees. We started a game of day pigs

Around 11 AM some of us headed over to the midway and also watched the team arrival. Almost like a light switch was turned on, the day warmed up. Velveeta started their set on the stage outside the all sports museum.

During the day, we were joined by Jeremy and Heather, Toby, Paul, Nick, Galen, Shawn, Shari and Roxi.

This was also our first chance to discuss the Book of Boba Fett and other new Star wars developments.

For lunch, we enjoyed Turkey club sandwiches, BLTs, and pulled chicken sliders, a variety of dips and other snacks.

We sampled Guinness chocolate mint stout and Southern Tier Thick Mint. Most preferred the southern Tier, except for Nick who enjoyed the oaky flavor of the Guinness.

I’d like to say that I could pick out something useful from the scrimmage, but my major accomplishment was scoping out my new seats with Shawn. We left before the end of the game, but they apparently let fans on the field for 30 minutes after the game.

Post game, Suz heated up some wings on the grill and we played more pigs until it was time for me to head back to the RV lot.

During the warm evening, we enjoyed some more drinks and ended up talking to a couple whot were looking for their co-workers in the RV lot.

Sunday

Rich and Nell left early because of Nate’s baseball game.

Alaina, Tina and I drove over to the Creamery to get some ice cream to take home.

Still unable to get anyone to look at his RV transmission, Larry, Tina and Kuno buttoned down their RV and rode home with Alaina and I. The ride home was almost uneventful, except for the 30 minutes at a dead stop for the Blessing of the bikes in Monroeville.

It was a gorgeous day with 80 degree heat for the unpack job at home.

Chalupa was not at this tailgate since Kuno was going. My mom watched him.
