The links below will take you to the newsletters from our past tailgates.

We started doing this back in 2003, slightly after many of us graduated. Back then, it was just couple of pick-up trucks, a pile of beer, and a ton of people. Many of us were living in Connecticut and commuting in 6 hours, so most of the weekends started on Thursday night to make the trip worth it. I decided to start writing down a summary of what happened at each tailgate, so I could share it with people who couldnít attend and so that I could reminisce over the spring and summer. Back then, we only tailgated 2 home games and BWW in the spring. At the time, I just said that I was writing it down so that I remember it 5 years from now. Even that was 5 years ago.

Now, in 2019 weíve got a handful of RVs in our convoy. Many of us have moved back into PA. The RV weekends are still just as long, even though we donít have to drive as far. Iíve now got season tickets, so Iím in for all home games.
