My friend, Rico, sent me an email and reminded me that the bartender's name is Shelly and her husband's name is Jeff. I updated the blog where I said I had forgotten her name.
An aside before getting back to Da'Boars. I just got back from visiting a friend of mine who has a weekend getaway in Pennsylvania. Bob and his wife Loretta are old tailgating friends of mine and we still get together on Sundays to watch the Jets. Wouldn't you know, with minutes to play and the Jets trailing by 3 the channel we are watching cuts away from to show that Eagles game. And because he has DirectTV we can't get it on any other station. We had to call my buddy Bernie, who was in New York watching the game, to get a play-by-play update as the Jets pulled one out of their butt.
Okay, Back To Da Boars
Now I may not be the biggest fan of Miller Lite, but that is just because, in general, I am not a fan of light beers. But I sure wouldn't mind having this vehicle for tailgating.
The Ultimate Tailgate Van
And Here Is Mr. Miller Himself
Okay, that wasn't really Mr. Miller, but he was the one driving the van.
Da'Boars has a couple of volleyball courts out back, but they weren't getting too much use on this rather chilly and somewhat damp day.
A Bit Forlorn
But hearty Minnesotans aren't put off by a little bad weather so there were still outdoor activities. And of course nothing says outdoor fun more than drinking yourself silly, spinning around with your forehead on a baseball bat and then trying to kick a football. And my friend Sandy gave it the old college try.
Forehead On Bat
Well, She Tried To Kick The Ball
To be fair to Sandy, almost everyone who tried this had about the same result.
Getting Ready For Their Turn
My friend Rico and his friends wisely chose to just be observers.
Better Safe Than Sorry
Oh yes, the Green Bay Packers Cheerleaders. I hope this picture doesn't get censored. I managed to get a peak into their dressing room before they put on their outfits.
Hey, A Little Privacy, Please
And Here They Are, In All Their Glory
I wonder if they knew the origin of the Packers name? And, a bit of trivia, the Green Bay Packers is the oldest team name still in use in the NFL. Oh, they could have been the Green Bay Indians. For extra credit, let me know why. And for double extra credit, what is the very tenuous connection to the Three Stooges? Or to The Road Runner cartoons, for that matter (a different connection).
I will reveal all tomorrow.
