- At a tailgate party in a rainstorm, never utter the phrase, “It’s too wet for me”. Not only will you get a look of shock and disgust from Flyin’ Bryan, but you’ll also reveal yourself to be a second-rate Golden Eagles fan.
Gentlemen, never wear white pants to a tailgate party in a rainstorm, because the mud and muck will only soil and damage your fine attire. Ladies, however, are by all means encouraged to wear a white t-shirt to a tailgate party in a rainstorm.
Bring beer that can be re-capped. That way if the rainwater gets too deep, the beer can act as buoys.
Make the chili extra thick, just in case some rain sneaks into the pot and tries to thin it out.
Batten down the hatches, batten down the hot wings.
And be sure to keep your radio tuned to Rock104 during rainstorm. We promise to ignore any evacuation notices that might tear you away from the game.

By the end of the Civil War, Americans came to realize the most devastating event in the history of the United States. It is estimated some 620,000 Americans were killed. Nearly everyone in the country had known someone that was killed during the war. While the Union side came to be known as the victor, both sides came away feeling devastated.
Memorial Day was originally conceived as a day to memorialize the soldiers who lost their lives in the Civil War. It was first called "Decoration Day", in reference the decorations that were laid on tombstones, and hung from buildings.
The first time Decoration Day was first started is not exactly known. Officially, the date is known as May 30, 1868. However, the practice of memorializing Civil War dead and decorating their graves goes back earlier.
The earliest known evidence of such observance goes back to various women's auxiliary groups in the North and South, when ladies organized events to honor their war dead by decorating graves. The earliest recorded event took place on April 25, 1866 in Columbus, Mississippi when a group of women formed an association to decorate the graves of civil war soldiers, starting with those who died in the Battle of Shiloh.
The towns of Macon, Georgia, Columbus, Georgia, and Richmond, Virginia all claim to be the birthplace of Decoration Day, having first celebrated it in 1866. The town of Boalsburg, Pennsylvania claims to have celebrated the first Decoration Day in 1868. Carbondale, Illinois claims to have celebrated it first on April 29, 1866. In all, some 25 cities claim to be the birthplace of Decoration Day, most of them in the South.

Ladies – before you go and get some ink done, here’s some things to consider about what your body art might be saying about you. Now before we get started, just remember – tattoos are reverse time machines: with time travel you can send a warning back to your younger self, with tattoos you send a mistake forward to your older self.
That being said, let’s begin with your head. A tat here more often than not indicates that you will never have a job that pays taxes.
Now, if your ink is on your hands or the front of your neck, you actually may cost taxes; what with the prison and all.
Okay, let’s move to the small of your back. Ladies, it’s called a ‘tramp stamp’ for a reason. Any ink here certainly sends the message that “yes, buying me a drink will totally work.”
Most women getting ink done for the first time tend to have a tat on their ankle area. The message? “I’m a cute little princess – and now I have real tattoo accessory!”
A growing trend is to have some ink done in a very private area (if you know what I mean). Just remember that people generally like to show off their tattoos. Now, you can draw your own conclusions here, but you might want to keep your local clinic on speed dial.
Probably the most risky area for women to get body art done is on their belly or breasts. This can be really dangerous for the simple fact that tattoos here will become humiliating 500% faster than normal.
Finally, here are three more things to remember about body art:
- Tattoos theoretically could be thoughtful additions to your appearance. Unfortunately there are thousands of tattoo parlors (many open 24 hours) and people just don't have that many thoughts. So most are stupid.
- ‘Tattoos are permanent. Your motivation/blood-alcohol level is not.
- Tattoos are an excellent way to turn a single drunken decision into a lifetime of disfigurement and regret, which normally requires a car. Tattoos are associated with criminal gangs, the armed forces, and whiny white teenagers desperate for attention. Attempts to get all three to attend a common "Tattoo Conference" have unfortunately failed.
