I feel abashed to say this, but this was my first attended home game of the year. As a nine year season ticket holder, it pained me to sit in the 322 section after paying my dues for years to get my seats down at the 130 level with prominent concierge service. I went over to my former seats and noticed a couple sitting there, in which I gave them the evil eye with jealousy. Having said that, it was good to be back in the loud house. From the picture above it shows a student section wearing their favorite silver attire and being tight-lipped with no movement. For the students that were there, bravo. You were bringing it, but you need more of your friends. Go out and recruit the loud, obnoxious Jersey-type and bribe them to get their asses in the Dome. If they don't come out in the coming weeks, let's move the student section to the 300's and let the locals get a piece of the pie down there by the tunnel. I'm sure Bobby and Stewie from Tully will be happy to get loud for the guys running out.
It was good to see the beers at a six dollar price point for a clear 16oz draft. I believe that beer was at eight dollars last year? I usually stick to the Labatts brand at the Dome as Budweiser products gives me a case of the "shits" and
I've become numb from the thruway drive across this state. For about a 50 mile stretch I'm not sure if I'm cruising through Indiana or Kansas. It's painfully lacking visuals.

I've always forgotten how Syracuse consistently has a grey cloud above it's city center . It could be vampire scary sunny 20 miles north or south, but Syracuse will have a dark, eery cloud hovering over it. I give a pass to all the gals that fake bake there, the sun is about as common as Doug Marrone smiling.
I highly recommend the watering hole Taps. It's a "Bars" bar that smells of urine, denim and old cats. I think my party of three may have had 46 drafts there. I think it only cost us $11 dollars. Great bargain.
It ended up being a great weekend and we have cleared our schedules to make it back for UCONN and Boston College. A note to all you young, single fellas that don't have a "legal" lady friend. Marriage will entirely change your MAN schedule. No longer does everything revolve around tailgating and football Saturday's. I know, it's a tough pill to swallow. Be creative and watch an episode of Grey's anatomy with her. Tell her she looks thinner. These things will give you some leverage when it comes to planning Gameday festivities.
