Friends of The Cup,
First, forgive me if this looks totally screwed up for a FanPost. I have no clue what I'm doing. My dad, brother, and I are traveling to your fine college town to take in the Grove tailgating scene and game against Texas. Before we get there, a few questions...
1) What is the ticket situation for big games? Should I go StubHub or scalp the day of the game?
2) Is there any sort of standard attire? I've heard it is a bit more formal than most places, and I'd rather we didn't look like idiots if possible.
3) Being that the game starts pretty late, what time should we plan to arrive?
4) I'm pretty sure we will be eating at Ajax on Thursday night, but where should we go afterward for a few pops? Keeping in mind I'm 36 and my dad is 60.
Lastly, I cast the net on a thread back in April, but I'll do it again here. I am wondering if any of you fine folks are willing to let us hang out at your tailgate. When I inquired before, I got responses from JimHalpert and another poster, warriorpossum(?)along with TGOJC, provided The Cup is at the game. I'm looking to see if those offers are still good, or if anyone else is willing to let us partake. We will bring more than our fair share of liquid refreshments. Also, I will have a souvenir or two to give out. If anyone is willing, send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again. I am counting the hours until I get to Oxford.
