Ironically 2 years ago when TCU came to Ames the grass lots were closed too and either we had a delayed start or it stopped raining right before game time I remember.I remember having a couple decent tailgating days at least. This year's been awful between the weather and the early starts.
I think it was like 10 degrees that day. I have a picture somewhere of the Coors light cans I snuck into the stadium (really easy to do when you have multiple layers on) and I have never seen the mountains on the cans as blue as they were that day. Also had to keep the cans up against my body because they would start to get slushy if you left them out in the cold that day.That snow Kansas gameday was great. One of the funnest tailgating days I've had. No one gave any ***** and just cut loose.
I hadn’t bought anything from concessions all season but wanted a soda. It was frozen within minutes My dog was the “Pet of the Week” so I had to see him on the screen.That snow Kansas gameday was great. One of the funnest tailgating days I've had. No one gave any ***** and just cut loose.
No doubt. Mine too. It was fun to see our players play hard in a meaningless game against a bad team. And while I don't love the freezing cold games, I'll take the weather at the Kansas game vs. the weather at the UNI game that year or the Oklahoma game last year 10 times out of 10.That Kansas game is still one of the funnest games I've attended inside the Jack. It was a complete free for all and the fans were rowdy as hell. There were flasks and beers all over the place and nobody cared.
They are paving them.Can someone please tell me why these grass lots are so sacred and can’t be parked in with even a drop of rain? Granted is has rained a lot the last couple days but these lots are constantly closed, pave the darn things.
Have you ever parked in them? If you have you'd know why. They are in low lying areas that don't drain well. After the Iowa game there were already tow trucks on standby because they already avoided parking vehicles in some areas that were too soft and those areas had standing water after the game so you can imagine how soft the rest of the lots were in places. It sucks to close those lots but if you are one of us here that don't have a donor parking permit you'd know why they do it because even when they are partially open there are spots that are pretty questionable they try to park.Can someone please tell me why these grass lots are so sacred and can’t be parked in with even a drop of rain?
