    Attending the K-State Game?

    I always try and make an away game once a year, I work politics and the only option I seem to have this year is in Manhattan. As anyone been there before? I know its a long way out but was just wondering what the tailgaiting and overall atmosphere is?

    Re: Attending the K-State Game?

    Bring dixie cups for alcohol. Cannot carry cans around. But they well give you a clear bag just to put cans in too recycle. Seems odd really. The grass lots are pasture ground for goat and sheep farms. Other then that... Kinda like tailgating at JTS. A lot of open area

    Oh and get to the lots after they open. They ell not let you form a line on the roads going into lots.

    I'll make the trip yet again. Been there last 4 times we played there. Aggieville is very fun after the game regardless of age.

    Boss gave me his tickets this year and hanging out with some friends down there. Should be an exciting time. K-State was my 1st choice but couldn't get in the landscape architecture program. Glad they didn't let me.

    If the game is relevant meaning that we could go bowling, I will be there. If we only have 4 wins at that point I am doubting that it is worth the effort.

    Re: Attending the K-State Game?

    If you choose to go to Manhattan, please remember that it is Kansas State University of AGRICULTURE and Applied Sciences. BE PREPARED! If you are forced to park in one of those infamous grass lots you will be subject to great peril. The ag department routinely runs the manure spreaders through the grass lots from 6 to 8 A.M. on game days. Even if they have not ran the spreaders, the sheep and goats have been doing their thing all week long. My advice is to leave your Gucci loafers at home. Combat boots are by far the most prudent footware. Be very careful playing games in the lots. The last thing you want to do is to take a fall. You might want to pray that the temperature is well below freezing. Otherwise, when the wind blows from the north or east the entire stadium takes on the smell of a hog confinement unit.
