Just a quick update - for those coming...

brought forth this day: 2014-08-17 23:05:01
to the tailgate today.....Big Red will NOT be in attendance. She is still in the shop for her yearly updates/checkups. Was supposed to pick her up Friday but when we got there, they were closed.
Inexcusable and I'm sure she wants to get out of there as much as we want her out. I could summon her like Kit from Knight Ryder (many of you won't even get that reference) but I'd hate for her to destroy the shop in doing so. 

We will still be out there in the Cedar street spot, but it'll be sans Big Red. Definitely ready to go wide open for regular season.
