    You guys stick your jerseys in your pants.
    I usually let it all hang out.

    In those pictures I have my jersey "hanging out" although you can only see my wife and I above the waist. I don't tuck it in either, it is too restricting.

    Somebody must have doctored those pictures, there seems to be about 25 lbs less of me. Oh that's right, these pictures were from a couple of years ago

    I am not a big drinker.Only drink at social functions.

    OK Kevin I better stick near you at the tailgate and we can create our "Hanging Out" Jersey fraternity.

    The Celery,is an old Northern England tradition, where natives dance round a campfire with a stick of celery up each nostril.

    Or it could be an old Rugby song."Celery,celery." UKRaven can tell you more.
    Me being a soft southerner and all doesn't understand it either.

    Re: Week 2 Trip.

    I'd like to join in on the festivities...are they planned for the evening of 9/15?

    FellsPoint, a stop at the Cat's Eye is surely part of the plan, no?

    Yes, Friday evening it will be.

    I don't do the Cat's Eye. Firstly, they card at the door, which could cause problems for one of our brethren, and secondly I have a couple of issues with their political leanings. I may be able to overcome these reservations and stop there for a pint if everyone wants to go, though.

    Both look well and the 21st I've just got in from was tame, so the countdown is on to Baltimore.

    Fells Point can probably expand on this but my understanding is that it originated through fans of British Rugby. As you may know, there are a gazillion rugby songs, mostly bawdy and rude . This particular song has the line "if she don't come, I'll tickle her bum with a stick of celery."

    Apparently while singing this in the stands of your local Rugby field, you then proceed to wing the celery at fans of the opposing team.

    The last time Dave was here, we launched a barrage of celery at some hapless Chiefs fan walking bythe tailgate. Hilarious.

    Re: Week 2 Trip.

    I took some friends to Castleford v Hull KR (Rugby League) game some years ago. At half-time a barrage of celery went the 'Cas fans way along with the song - all done in good humour!!

    I believe Chelsea fans are credited with its creation.

    KR fans still sing the celery song - I sang it with them myself at Batley away (my 40th) last Sunday!

    I do however suggest a toned down version for this Raiders game Taigate could be:

    Celery!!! Celery!!!
    The 'Brits are here! We'll drink some beer!
    And throw some CELERY!
    Celery! Celery!

    and so on................
