I remember that day, Riggo. It was a bit altruistic to think we could get a bunch of folks from the internet to get together and hang out, before, during and after the game, but we did it didn't we. As I recall you had driven up and we met outside the Marriot and shepparded you and your friends into the van and off we went. That was a truly fun time as I was marauding around the Stadium looking for our lost (drunken) souls after the game. And when we got to the Marriot Scott and others had a full on Rugby game going on inside the bar..even Karl showed for that one, snakeskin boots and all.
That first event showed me how Miller was able to schmooze the Redskins. For whatever reason they let us saddle up next to the stadium and hawk a leather coat signed by eDarrell Green as a fundraiser. Good old Larry #1 Fan was a beast in the parking lot selling tickets for the cause along with Tom (another fine gentleman who doesn't post much anymore). I will always remember saddling up to the only brush in the parking lot to find some relief before driving back to the Marriot and running into our missing brethren doing the same (ahem, 101 proof). At least I found everybody, including Phil who likewise was one of our wandering sheep that night. Then they had to deal with the madman racing home....me.
Those were fun times with great folks. I would love to see some of you post again. Nothing but the calendar has changed and it's important that some of you more reticent fellow CPNDers keep the candle burning in the window and post more often. You are missed:
Karl; Tom; E (King of tailgates); 21037Dad; Kentucky Hillbilly; iambatman; Mud; Alvinwalton; pete; johnskinsfantx; reaper21; CTScott; 101Proof; OriginalPhil; 40gut; Vern; Ratboy( yes you); Mugsy; Optics; paul55; Chrisbob; and the list goes on....
I'd also love to see: RealRick; Redclaw; Mistress of the Meadowlands; Hans the Human knockwurst; and even Amar Singh, Master of Hand to Hand Combat and Gat Raiders fan....their color has been sorely missed.
While this thread has been about Stephan, remember that none of this would have been possible without each and every one of you. And I for one am both grateful and truly blessed to have known you all.
Wow...great memories...really makes me want to get to the next Fest...Ill definitely climb back in to posting more
