Hey Ratsy, although the saddest part of our last home game was seeing the "rat" being retired from the "corner" for the year, are you going to bring him Saturday or does he only make an appearence in the "corner"  ?

You're right...it's not a representation of your fanbase as a whole.  It's unfortunate that something like that even happens.


Dead right, Steve.  I received NOTHING but courtesy from the PCA folks today, despite seeming to be in just about everybody's way.

Ratsy - Why not contact the school (politely - no Limburger!)?  I have a feeling something might turn up.


All.... Already talked to their security/police I think they thought it was funny. Not to worry tailgater's son Zach has one and is lending it to me for Saturday. Once again the SHG flag will be flying proudly twenty five feet up in the air. Next year I will have another one as well as a spare. Ratsy


That's been my experience with the Providence admin and fans as well. Not all, but most give the school a bad reputation.

From what I remember cyks2591 your brother had a pretty good back up as well. Good luck Cyclones and Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Great Ratsy, I'll bring the cheese for the "rat" so he keeps that smile on his face.

I haven't heard anything yet - but then I haven't followed it closely either - he's probably directly responsible for 4 of their wins.

If I hear something I'll let you know.

Thanks, I will jhs81, but I just remembered that Ratsy may take him into the SHG tent with him. Help me out Ratsy. Also, what time will the SHG tent be open to us? I wouldn't mind wandering over to the Metamora Redbirds' tent either. Speaking of the Redbirds: GoBirdsGoII, as a loyal follower what do you think of their new home uniforms ? I for one thought the old red jerseys (without the white stripes they have now) were awesome, and together with the black pants personified Metamora home games. Just some thoughts from a high school football fan interested in what you think. I may have Ratsy introduce us Saturday if he isn't too busy keeping an eye on the "rat" (and the flag, as now appears necessary after what happened last week).

All.... Don't know a thing about the big tent Analyst.... yet. I would assume if the "official" tailgate group is going to work under the big top (tent) they have a time in mind. I worked that tent with Tailgater who ran it in the 2006 championship game. A bit of work but loads of fun.

Last week a few of us die hards set up a tent, table, grill ect and tailgated at Providence. That became the unofficial official tailgate because I didn't see the regular group that sets up in town at the game. Some fans must have thought the same. (They came up with money in hand looking for the donation can.) After a  few laughs  we told whoever showed up that the food was free and they had us confused with the other group. Surprising how fast Italian sausage, hotdogs, junk food and candy go when it's free.  laugh.gif Had a great time other than the flag issue which has been resolved.

Unless there is a change in plans look for a white tent and the SHG flag up in the air somewhere out in the U of I parking lot....  gocycs.gif Ratsy P.S. We should be easy to find....

Can't wait. By the way, I would be remiss if I didn't thank you and Dave for the tailgating (including  the cooking, time and the expense involved) you put on all year. This just adds to the fun of high school football. I hope the regular crowd (Tony and Brian, Steve, HasBeen, etc.) shows up for the final tailgate of the year.

I stopped by looking for the rat (not the plastic one), but he was away at the time, (I was the guy wearing the SIU hoodie) so I went in and met ispaiu to watch the game.

Sorry to miss you.

All.... Sorry to have missed you gusdog. Was making the rounds.... That parking lot was more fun than anyone should have. Our group will once again  be set up with the white tent and flag flying. The heater will also be on.... As good as place as any to hang out if you intend to make the game! Ratsy
