These are the times that try men's souls...

I just made that up. You should write that down. That'll probably be famous.

It's about perservereance people. Sure, you could throw in the towel and say "0-5, we've got no shot at the playoffs...I'll find something else to do with my time" Well, unless your naked you're not gonna have more fun than you are in the parking lot. I think a prime example of that was this past Sunday. Tailgate was great! Don't even know where to begin -- We had young Ditka's, we had your traditional Chicago Superfans, we had a corduroy Ditka/Superfan, we had a Pepper, we had a Peppers protester and enough mustaches to make a Burt Reynolds convention jealous. Check out the Tailgate Rescue Crew Facebook page to see 'em all. We had the folks from InsideTailgating.com stop by. You gotta go check 'em out and VOTE for our Tailgate video when they post the link. We could win stuff...grand prize is $10,000! And what are we going to do if we win $10,000? Have a $10,000 Fucking Tailgate party!!!!!! The Fulghum Family did what all family's do when they get together -- Keg Stands! I said it Sunday -- Edis and Archie Manning should have their balls bronzed.... both produced "special" children. The grill was pumping out Sausages and all was right in the parking lot. Somebody needs to talk to the people at Buffalo Wild Wings and have them to send the Tailgate into overtime.

So with all the time and effort that went into mocking the Bears....who were the winners of the Chicago Style Pizza's? How can you pick ONE winner. Rusty and Jess had to endure a train ride and and extra 40lbs of insulation in the heat. Bryce and Hogan pulled up in the Caddy and converted the trunk into 'Da Bar. Rick looked like a Ditka Porn star. All the Ditka/Superfans will receive a Pizza! More details soon.

And as we turn toward this weekend...the good news is we can't loose. It's a BYE week! Lick your wounds. Rest up. Think about how you're gonna improve and be even more SPECIAL in the 2nd half of the season. But be careful...on't relax too much...b/c the first game back is gonna be a doozy of a Tailgate. Let me just say...we have another professional team in Charlotte and they haven't lost a game. They get started pretty soon and with their help...we're adding some "special" elements to the San Fran Tailgate. If you're athletic, can jump, and like basketball, reach out to Rusty this week. More to come...but you don't want to miss it. Even if you're none of the things I just mentioned...you want to be there. Trust me on this.

More good news...The TGRC shirts are here. Pick 'em up over the next 2 weeks or at the Tailgate. We ordered only the amount of responses back...there may be one or two extras.

So people, It's like my dad always said. "never shit in firehouse without a shovel. "Piss don't change colors in a wooden cup." "If you fart with your mouth open you'll make a whistle". What does all that mean...I don't know, he drank a lot.

We'll see you next week.
