Let's party!

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Ok guys - sorry for the short notice.  Well - it's not really that short.  But if we're gonna do this thing, let's do this thing.  Come out to the Memphis game this Saturday in Lawrence.  I'll have:

Hot dogs (not sandwiches)

Chips

Beer

Water

Kool-aid

Tunes

Tickets

Trivia?

Yep, you read that right.  You don't need to bring anything!  Bring yourself, a friend, a spouse, a girlfriend, the kids, whatever.  I'll have four dozen or so hot dogs and a dozen or so extra tickets - everything while supplies last, of course, although let me know if you're interested in tickets.  (They're quite cheap.)  If I get an indication in the poll below that I'll need supplies for more than 50, then I'll gladly do that.

If you plan on coming out several hours before gametime, maybe bring a game or something.

How to Find Me

I plan on being under the big tree just to the west of Lot 91 - click here for map.  The parking lots don't open until 3 PM - therefore, for logistical reasons, I'll be setting up around 1 PM.  To make it easier to find me, I'll be wearing a Bill Whittemore #4 jersey, which, in case you've forgotten, it looks like this.  (Don't worry, I'll complete my outfit with cargo shorts.)  There will also be a sign of some kind so you'll know you're in the right place.

In case the location changes, I will let you know in the comments section of this article and in Saturday's News and Notes.

Come on out, hang out for a bit, have a beer with me, and let's see if we can't knock off Memphis on Saturday night.

FYI, depending on gametime, I'll most likely (like, 95% chance) do this for the Texas Tech game as well, but don't let that stop you from coming out this weekend.
