Another season of great tailgating at Autzen stadium is finished. I would like to take a moment to recognize the person who makes it all possible–my brother Ken.
He gives us a space to party, puts a roof over our heads, makes sure we get plenty to eat and drink, pours us car bombs, and makes sure we have heat. Hell, he even makes sure some of us have tickets. I know I wouldn’t be there without Ken!
He is not only the most generous host, but as a bonus, if anyone at the party ever had a medical issue, he could save their life. We probably have one if the highest percentages of ACLS certified attendees of any tailgater. It’s a good feeling.
Of course, even though Ken is definitely the king of the tailgater, he is assisted by the best group of partiers you would ever hope to meet. Whenever I invite someone new, they always tell me how wonderful my family and friends are. It’s true.
There are far too many people to send out my love to. Ken and “I can’t feel my cheeks”Nicole, Lu and Brandon, Ma and Little L, John and Rhodana, Marlene, Pam, the THS fun crowd, and everyone who food/drink/laughter to the party.
You are all the best.
My little brother is the bestestest though.
