Pats vs. Bucs 9/22
We are back at it this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-2). The Patriots defense has carried them the 1st two weeks and I suspect they will have to again this week while the youngsters get their legs under them. We may have benefitted from the extra time off after the Thurs Night Game.
We learned from our first game in the Rodman lot that they open early. So we will adjust and gather at 8:00 at the regular meeting spot in front of Brookline Movers and across Old Post Road from Mick McGee’s (formerly Wicked) parking lot.
New for this year is an attempt to strategically place the tailgaters with canopies at the head of the line entering Rodman’s parking lot. Our goal was to get 5-6 spots together on the grassy area adjacent to Rte 1. We have been utilizing a Quad configuration that has also allowed for other members of our tailgating crew to set up just outside of the quad. So far it has worked out very well. We also try to be considerate to those groups that regularly setup to our right and left.
The Rodman Lot is $50 to park. This money goes to charity (not Bob Kraft). Other benefits are that you get in the express lane going North and when exiting the Rodman lot you can go either North or South on Rte 1.
For Sunday’s 1:00 game we will meet at 8:00 and leave by 8:15.
If you haven’t let me know you will be attending, please let me know as soon as possible!
Caravan to Parking — Rt 95 S (Bear right at split with 93N) toward Providence. Take exit 9 (Route 1 south ). Immediately move to the right lane and look for the 1st restaurant on your right (Mick Morgan’s) DO NOT PARK THERE. Pull up to the light and take a right onto Old Post Road. Turn into the parking after the Liquor Store and before Brookline Movers. Back into angled parking spaces for ease of egress when we are leaving the lot. Be in the lot by 8:00. Caravan of cars will leave by 8:15.
Meeting at the Tailgate – Continue on Rt 1 S as you approach the stadium. Take right into the Rodman Ford Collision Center. Look for our setup near the Pedestrian Crosswalk. We will have the Red Razor’s Edge Tailgate banner, and the Razor’s Edge Express Bus. Call me if you need directions 978-866-3580.
Don’t forget we are having a theme for this week’s tailgate. Its Jimmy Buffett / Margaritaville theme. I am bringing jerk chicken and margarita’s.
We may be hosting guests from Nova Scotia this week too!
