My Saviors

My Saviors

Ed and Glenda Treadaway generously shared a hamburger with me. I had forgotten to eat and didn't think that I could wait until after the game. Glenda is the acting chair of the Communications Dept. at ASU. Thanks ya'll.


He's from Hong Kong..

He's from Hong Kong..

Well, maybe not, but Preston Powell flew in from Asia just to see the game in Chattanooga. It is unofficial, but I declare him the furthest travelling App State fan. Powell was an ASU linebacker from 1997-2000.


Hey, I can see up your noses....

Hey, I can see up your noses....

It is generally not considered smart to volunteer to lay on the ground and look up at a bunch of rabid fans about 3 hours into the tailgating process...happily I survived.


He's got spirit

He's got spirit

Adam Burleson cheers, "I've got spirit, yes I do. I've got spirit, how 'bout you?" Adam does this while jumping wildly upon his buddy's mini-van.


All the meat you could possibly eat...

All the meat you could possibly eat...

Jared and Stacy Everett cooked more than 50 pounds of pork and stuff for the 8 people in their tailgating party. They let me have a taste...mmmm


The lack of Adam Sandler

The lack of Adam Sandler

Well, Adam Sandler was a no show at the 1-AA Championship Game, but thank goodness that Scooby-Doo, Dennis Haskins and Santa Claus were all there.

This was the coolest ride that I saw in the parking lot during the tailgating session. It belongs to App fans (duh ) Grayson and Eric Fleming who came from Delaware to see the game.


Exactly

'Nuff said.


Liquor litter

Liquor litter

Those silly UNI fans have no respect for the environment. We know that no APP fans were drinking before the game...


Scooby was at the game

Scooby was at the game

I repeat, Adam Sandler wasn't at the game, but at least Scooby-Doo (aka-Ashley Galleher) was.


Just a couple of Local Yokels

Just a couple of Local Yokels

I ran into so many friends in Chattanooga that I really thought I was still in Boone.


Is is Santa? Yosef? or Buddah?

Is is Santa? Yosef? or Buddah?

Apparently the black and gold Santa is all three. Everyone kept coming up to it and rubbing his belly for good luck.


Even Santa has a gripe

Golden gloves

Golden gloves

That's Leila taking a photo of me. We were in the middle of the mob scene at the time. I turned around and saw her. It is so cliche and silly for photographers to take photographs of each other taking photographs, but hey, you really just had to be there. Do note the lucky golden gloves that she is wearing. During the first half, the gloves weren't bringing ASU as much luck as she had hoped, so she put on her lucky ASU sweatshirt. Thanks Leila. It worked!


I'm sure he is nice...

I'm sure he is nice...

but at the time, this guy was scaring me just alittle. He and I were on the field of Finley Stadium celebrating with thousands of other Appalachian fans after we defeated the University of Northern Iowa 21-16.
