I called Ace parking today to ask about parking since it has been stated all through this thread that the Orangemane tailgate would be held where it has been held the past 2 seasons in lot A4... 3 years ago we held it in lot N when Meck brought the bus. According to Ace who has the parking concession that A3 is dedicated for RV parking only, A4 is "Directed" parking... I was told we can not park there and the next closest parking is B3 which is "RV companion" parking which each RV owner can purchase up to 2 spaces for $20.00ea and it is not available to those without a RV. There is no parking behind those unless they are making parking spots on Mission Rd. A2 and B2 are "Tailgate zones" which only includes 1 parking space and is reserved ahead of time. A1 and B1 are reserved only. I say this because in the past everyone just parked right next to our tailgate area so we were all together.
Now since you asked me, I will give you a straight forward honest answer on what you consider the "Running Joke" between Tailgatenut and myself.
I met TGN many years ago threw a Bronco message board, I have spent countless game days at his tailgate. I have also got tickets from him in the past. Now here is where the "joke" comes in.... Never has TGN ever sold a season ticket that he owns for a penny over what is listed as face value, Nor have I to anyone on the Orangemane. Now let's get to the best part shall we
If you or anyone else on this site have ever been invited to Tailgatenuts party, and I know that many have been, you have been treated to one of the best parties at the stadium... Not only including beer, scotch or whatever the drink of the day is, but also soda, water and some food that is to die for including Steak, shrimp, chicken, gumbo, Roasts and all the trimmings. And you know what John, Not once has he ever asked for money
for all of the time, hard work and hard earned cash he spends throwing his tailgates at every home game. The past 3 season in San Diego I have taken not only Tailgatenuts, but also Meck77's lead and supplied food for the grill, chips, beer, expensive booze, cuban cigars, Bronco beads as well as bringing the grill and whatever was needed without charging anyone anything. This is supposed to be an Orangemane tailgate party, Not let me sell you tickets at a profit of $23.00 per ticket for repeat "Customers" and $33.00 for "Newbies" as you put it.
Those of us that make "jokes" are doing it because we like doing our thing to be around others that are coming from out of town and want to get together giving everyone a place to feel like they are at home.... without making money off of them, Kind of like friendship, not a customer.
As far as getting a ticket from you, I do not need one of yours, I can buy a single game ticket (yes they are available) on the field level, not obstructed for $92.00 ea. I just would rather sit with a group of friends that are coming together to share there love of our favorite team.
