Yeah, never been a fan of that motivational turn of phrase, to be honest. It sounds a bit clunky and stilted. Like one of those ad campaigns that was okay at first but then just grew annoying, like the GEICO caveman bit. They were funny in the restaurant ordering roast duck with mango salsa, but once the TV series was green-lit, things grew way out of hand. Maybe we’ll come up something new this year.
But until then, we have bigger fish to fry. Or cows to slaughter, rather. Ones from Texas, specifically. A few days from now those pesky conference rivals from Houston will roll in to the Q with their belt buckles, boots and better running back looking to shitkick Rivers & Co. down to the border.
But that’s where Section D3 comes in.
The first game of the 2013-14 season is where we need to make our mark—and we’re coming out strong with a 3:00 cooler open and the 2013 Iron Bartender Competition.
Yep, it’s a little early this year and without last year’s champion returning due to some sudden and undisclosed international travel demands, the contest is wide open. It’s anyone’s tailgate.
And after you’re done sampling the alcoholic goodness poured by your fellow tailgaters, make sure to visit the guy behind the grill for some searingly-good beef and chicken sustenance. Oh, what guy you ask?
Taco Guy, that’s who. Hell yes he’s back.
Unlike our tailgating season, no one knows what to expect from McCoy’s squad this year. It looks like we may rely heavily on the running game, putting a lot of weight on the shatter-prone shoulders of Ryan Mathews. However, the off-season acquisition of Little Danny Woodhead may add a bit of unexpected stability in the short passing game. And let’s hope Floyd gets to 100 percent as soon as possible.
Regardless of how the season goes, we’ll always have what happens in the Chargers Tailgate Village of D3 to make things better.
So get out there at 3:00 p.m. sharp next Monday.
It’s time to
Hell, we’ll figure it out later.
