    Chinese fire lanterns

    Where were those coming from last night? Probably saw a half dozen fly over JTS during the 2nd half. Was this a warning sign that the Mongolians had come to break down the schitty wall? I never saw any Mongolians.

    Those were being let off from someone in parking lot S-3. They have done it for every home game so far this season.

    I was on the east side, lower level. They looked to be moving north/northwest. They were way low coming over the old scoreboard. I'm assuming they had to be originating from the student lot.

    I bet the fire department just loves those!!

    I saw them too! One of them at least. I just accepted that I had gone completely mad!

    The police did not approve of these and stomped one of them out when they found the source...
