"Fool, it's hot! I told you again! Were you born on the sun? It's damn hot! I saw... It's so damn hot, I saw little guys, their orange robes burst into flames. It's that hot! Do you know what I'm talking about?"In my mind, those guys in orange robes aren't the VC - they're UT. So, yeah, I'm going comfortable. Sweating sucks. 3. What your favorite gameday recipe or alternately, it’s just not tailgating without… The Fighting Cock. It's the best tasting cheap bourbon going. I would certainly never deign to smuggle any of the Cock (as we like to call it) into Bryant Denny. No siree bob. Not me. And I'm definitely not looking forward to my first Diet & Cock of the new Coca-Cola era... not at all. Aside from that, I do enjoy my treasured hot garlic wings. Gameday, these are always from Buffalo Phil's. Call ahead - give them your credit card digits - and pick them up hassle free. Thank me later. But beware, once you go garlic, you can never go back. 4. What is your drop-dead have to be in your seat time? If the ball isn't in the air, we're early. We get there just before kickoff. Never really after, but never really all that before either. I will usually stop for the anthem on my way up the ramp, and will sign along with Sweet Home in the concourse. But if the band is still on the field when I get to my seat, we've left too early. 5. Is there any paraphernalia you have to take in the game with you? Just the cell phone and wallet. Anything else is just extraneous. I need to be in touch with my fellow fans, and the text messages make that tenable. No gloating via phone or text is allowed, as it's always a jinx. Also, my cell allows me to get scores from other games without waiting for Tony Giles. And, of course, the liquid contraband.
