A couple of years ago my good pal Chip, who is as die hard a Clemson fan as you will find and a pal of his came up here for the Clemson Syracuse - and for reasons that I will never understand stayed in Buffalo.
They stopped by here for a visit, and I do think that then and there we made plans for them to come back up here when the game happened again in two years. Well that was this past weekend. Chip , his same pal , Buster, and Buster's husband Lee all made the trip up from Atl to cheer on their beloved Tigers and were sweet enough to get tickets for Neil and I as well.
A pretty cloudy Saturday morning, the possibly of some showers, but no one cared, SYRACUSE plays indoor football! I had never been to Syracuse campus, only driven through the town. It is small by SEC standards, but they were having some compact fun.
There was defiantly a college feel to the place, that universal sense of tailgating on Saturday mornings - A LOT OF ORANGE for this Bulldawg, but I was in for a penny , in for a pound. We were looking for somewhere to get a bite to eat before the game, but the little college village was just packed, as it should have been , and just ended up in some fun little college bar - that was pretty much full of Clemson folk!
My very first legal beer at a non bowl game .
This is a very small stadium by the standards that I am accounts to, but it still had a very college/ spirited atmosphere. We were in the Clemson section, and it really did not look to be sold out - but the kids were having a good time. The Clemson folk around us were happy...
