    If I remeber correctly it is supposed to start at 10 so I plan on getting there no later than 8:30 maybe grill up some camping style breakfeast.

    I am intrested in seeing our D matching up with our offense, bragging rights on the line...

    Anyone know if there are admission or parking fees?

    Admission is free and so is parking.

    I have decided to go to this event.

    I just got a call from Marc - Clinton Hart's best friend and he is flying into town tonight. He asked if we were doing a tailgater and I wasn't but I told him if he was showing up, I would show up as well. So much for that.

    I will be there EARLY and with a designated driver which means - woohoo - the tailgater is on. :icon_toast:

    PS.... F-3 / G-3 area. Same spot as usual for the tailgater if possible or listen for the horn.

    It would be cool to get a "Talk to the Tailgaters" segment in the Podcasts where a different player is interviewed each week.

    I would be more than happy to ask Marc if we can interview Clinton Hart at some point in time.

    If it all goes well, it could snowball....thoughts?

    That's a great idea. It would be cool to interview any player since all we've been able to interview is Billy Ray Smith.

    LIFE IS FINALLY COMING BACK FULL CIRCLE.

    We're about to put a deposit down on a house in the Carlsbad area this week. It's been a long time coming. For years I've spent a lot of dough and time traveling back and forth to games in SD in order to support my Bolts and Padres, but no more. Now I'll use that money to buy beer and food for tailgaters.....it's the American Dream. :flag:

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but unlike some other attention ho's, I choose not to open a new thread for personal news/information.

    I've met some of you guys already (especially at the SF/SD game last year), and look forward to meeting more of you in the future at events such as FanFest and of course the actual games. :icon_toast:

    Thanks man. Nice zinger, although I can't argue with it. That malpractice suit might not be the only thing Weis loses this year.

    ALTHOUGH.....did you look at his recruit class for next year....not too shabby.....finally picking up some D help (hopefully Weis is still around to enjoy it). :unsure:

    I will talk to Marc and set something up with Clinton Hart.

    I am wondering if ANT or you can do it this weekend at FanFest? If I get Clinton to show up to the tailgater, maybe you guys can snag an interview? Or we can set up a time to call into the show.

    These guys are not allowed to go out and have to go to their rooms at night so I am sure they are bored and this would mix it up for them a bit.

    I just want to hear Clinton Hart say how much he is going to enjoy watching dudes like Shamrock eat his own cow pies after he turns in a ProBowl performance. :yes:

    It's more a matter of interviewing him, I would have to find my little recorder wherever it is that records directly to MP3 files. Assuming I can we could interview him there at fan fest. If not then we'd have to get him to call in

    hiya buttmunch!
    Glad to know y'all are coming back to SoCal. I almost moved to Carlsbad-it's a nice coastal town and closer to where I work. I know several people that live there, (one with a ocean view), and they LOVE it. I just went to eat lunch on the coast and go to the beach there last week.
    Beeee-u-tiful.

    Thanks. Looking forward to wearing flip flops again almost full time while sipping some brews and eating fish tacos. I'll be contacting you prior to next baseball season in order to get some info on Pads tickets. I doubt I'll do a full season, but I want to check into the mini-packages and half season packs.

    I will be there in spirit. :lol: Too much **** to do around the casa as I am in the middle of replacing all of my windows.

    Two things:

    1. Congrats Buttmunch! Where in Carlsbad? Some really cool areas there.

    2. I found a bag of kind weed on my walk with my dog this morning. It was just sitting there on the sidewalk, and in the grey light I almost walked right past it. ALMOST. :lol: So MAJOR props to me for that. :nana_rasta: :nana_rasta: :nana_rasta:

    That is an omen that ONE, we are going to win the Super Bowl and TWO, do you need help consuming your ill gotten booty ? :icon_toast: :nana_rasta: :icon_beerbang: :icon_high:

    Breakfast burritos at 8AM compliments of San DiegoRon and maybe a little asada so heads up. SDRon is hitting up some authentic (as opposed to fake) mexican chick to make hand made tortillas so anyone missing out on this is plain ol **** out of luck.

    Oh and Go effin' eh Chargers :bolt:

    PS.....Tailgate breaks down at 9:30-9:45 heads up as well.
