Hey everyone,

As some may guess, I'm going to try and have a huge tailgating party this year. For those that recall the last one, it wasn't exactly great. But, I hope this one will be.

So, anyways, the first step is to find out which game most people will be able to go to.

Please keep the following in mind:

1. Monday Night Games shouldn't be chosen simply because we have people coming in from all over the country, and this would simply be inconvenient.

2. Sunday Night Games: read above

3. While a December game would be best, many people may not be able to go because it's near the Holidays, and thus money is kind of tight.

So, with that in mind, please select which games you would be able to attend. Note, you can select more than one game.

Thanks...

Sunday night games are real easy to tailgate at. Even if went out the night before and got hammered, you should of recovered by then.

I like the jets game in Dec. Should be nice and cool by then.

How about if everyone comes up here for the Jets game at the Meadowlands??

Oh well .... it was just a thought....

The Giants game is also at the Meadowlands, I don't know why it is listed. Anyway, I am going to both the Giants and Jets games in NJ, but won't be able to tailgate.

Dude, we should hook up this year.... I'll be going to the Jets game at least, maybe the Giants too!
Remember last year? We were sitting a stone's throw from each other, and didn't know it until the next day?

The obvious choice is the Monday night game on October 27th in San Diego

There's three possibilities for the "Tailgate Party - North"
I'm sure there are more of us in the NY/NJ/PA area that want to meet up with FinHeaven brethren at the Meadowlands!

I picked NE. Same deal as last year? We should actually do more stuff before and after.

I could fly in for the NE game, I would like the Jets Games, but my wife usually spends all my money over the Holidays and so I will never make it out the house over the Holidays. Though Miami in Dec, sounds better than Minneapolis in Dec.

That's kinda neat. i got the Houston game. not necessarily by choice but we bid our vacas in November for the following year. i always pick the week after labor day since that's the opening weekend and most times we open at home but if not usually the 2nd week anyway. tHEN we have to wait til april to see who we play. Kind of suckx like that but this is the last year to play that guessing game. After that, i acn come when i want. LOL

Members,

The staff of FinHeaven & Co is proud to announce that will be having a FinHeaven & Co Tailgating Party nationwide. There will be one in the East, West, and South. The East game will be at the Meadowlands against the Jets. The West game will be held at the Chargers game. Finally, the South game will be held at Pro Player Stadium, and the game is undecided right now. The advisor of the East game will be WharfRat. The advisor of the West game will be dolfan06. Finally, I will be the advisor of the Miami game, as I will be able to attend that game.

Here is the deal, if you are going to any of these games, wouldn’t it be so much more fun to be tailgating with your friends at FinHeaven & Co? It doesn’t get any better. So, if you are going to these games, please let us know. In the tailgating form, and in the relevant sub-forum: http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=22

To make this more enticing, I’m going to give away a prize. What you have to do is take a picture or pictures of your tailgating party. Show us how much fun you guys are having. In addition, show off your creativity in advertising FinHeaven & Co. The BEST group of tailgaters, which will be voted by the members, will get a prize. I’m really not sure what this prize will be, and I’m not sure if it will be a HUGE great prize, or if it will just be a “cool” prize. However, whatever the case, don’t let the size of the prize limit your tailgating fun.

So, let's get ready for a FUN, EXCITING, year. I look forward to seeing all the members have some fun. If you need any travel hook ups, please hold on a couple weeks and we will have a travel agency advertised on this website.

If you have any questions, please ask.

Sincerely,
Andrew Tatum

Well it's easier for me to get tix to the Giants game because my friend is a Giants season ticket holder and one of her cousins is giving me his ticket.


Besides, I would need a series of cootie shots before sitting in the Stadium with all those Jets fans
:tongue: I wouldn't want to catch anything :D

I'll see what I can do, my ex is a Jets season tix holder and he doesn't go to a lot of the games.

Hey Phinphreak, just be sure to wear the mask, alright there old guy?

Anyway, I wish I could travel to some of those games, but money is tight. SO, I will definitely make a point to go to the home game, whichever it is. Let's make it the New England game though, that is the one that most fits the criteria AND it's a rival. Oh Yeah, I'm sure Ethan will be there and we can rag on him. ;)

Well, we are always at the games and are nicely setup for tailgating. FH and DT posters are always welcome to stop by.

*note to miad: we actually can light a BBQ grill.....lmao

PS we do not tailgate for nightgames.....Sunday night games: hooters wings and beer and the late games on TV and then party on in the tent.

Gentlemen,

Let restablish my points on the Buffalo game.

1). No early Sunday morning.
2). We can watch 4:00 pm games at the Stadium. (I have tv and Converter to watch)
3). Night games are wild.
4). More time to cook a great meal. (I tailgate with resturant managers, If we all pitch in a few bucks, they'll do the cooking. Last year we had Gator tail, Filet Mignon, Lobster tails, You name it we had it.)
5). My wife does not go to night games! (school next day)

number 5 is most important!

Think about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll have to look into the costs of coming out from Vancouver. Try to do it as cheaply as possible via Greyhound or something. Have to see how many are likely to go to the San Diego game. Anyone in the area who can send me cheap hotel info in the area I'd appreciate it.

As far as the age question goes: 26

edit: As far as greyhound goes someone better be willing to take me out drinking when I arrive cause the travel time is: 1d, 9h, 30m

Check out the travel schedule lol:

Edit #2: Well I can get a flight for $700 cdn (greyhound is $300 anyways) and a hotel near Qualcomm for $105cdn a night. If anyone wants to spend a day doing something else in San Diego (Sea World is there isn't it? What else?) the day after the game let me know and I'll book another hotel night. I figure for the cost involved I should do more then just the game. I also need to know where to buy a game ticket and whether anyone wants to grab seats together since I won't be bringing the gf (why waste more airfare money on someone who hates sports :lol: ).

SEE! My Giants tix will be cheaper-FREE! Her cousin may not charge me for them. I'm not sure where their season seats are though.

The Jets game I'd have to pay for those tickets and you know how it would kill me to give some Jets Shill $$ for the game :jetssuck:

Simply untrue. This is the reason I am not choosing the Miami games. Most flights don't arrive until after 11pm. Factor in jet lag and the time changes (3 hours ahead) and I definately don't want to do an early game. Hence why the San Diego Monday nighter is more appealing if I can see who is going to that one.

The Giant's game would be even better. I've figured that for a win all along. But, how cheap is "cheaper"? ......and now you've let the cat out of the bag!

Simply untrue. This is the reason I am not choosing the Miami games. Most flights don't arrive until after 11pm. Factor in jet lag and the time changes (3 hours ahead) and I definately don't want to do an early game. Hence why the San Diego Monday nighter is more appealing if I can see who is going to that one.


hey, if you guys from the south jersey area are getting together to go to a game this year and have an extra opening i'd love to get in. i don't have any friends who are fellow dolphin fans who are willing to pay the price and take the drive up to see them play the jets. it would be awesome to see my first dolphins game in person with some fellow dolphin fans.

I lost track of what the hell is going on here, but I'm in for either the Jets or Giants game (I live in Brooklyn), and I'll be in Miami at the end of the year, so I'm in for the 12/28 game also.

BTW, I'm 30 y/o.
