    Great picture you painted there Camden.

    I can't wait for this bit though.

    Once you make your way to your section and walkup the ramp...it all unfolds in front of you. That green field, surrounded by 70,000 purple seats. The first time you see it, your breath will leave you. This is it.
    I'm going to suck that view in.And stamp it on my lifelong memory cells right there.Get a little choked up.[This has always been an impossible dream for me till now].

    What is it,10 days till takeoff from Heathrow.And already I'm starting to pace like a caged lion.
    Put the smile back on your face.This is a 60 minute ball game.

    I feel that way every home game the last 9 years.

    You can't use terms like fortnight when you get here, though

    And Camden only described one tailgate lot. You have to walk to the top of the bridge and take a look around. There will be purple as far as you can see.

    Nope, but look on the bright side...you can go up to groups of Raider fans and say "Bollocks you wankers" without having to worry about hospital bills.

    Unless one or more is a UK Raider

    Re: Gameday ritual.

    Damn CY, your post was magic, simply magic. I've seen one pre-season game, looked at some film from previous years...looked at my wonderful tickets and parking passes....and still was not juiced up quite the way I wanted to be.

    Then I read your post and now I am ready! Is it game day yet?



    I'm looking forward to them ribs. I think I'll bring some pre-made beef kabobs.
    I bought them at wal-mart a few weeks back and cooked 'em on the barbie and they were great. So, I'll buy a couple of boxes of 'em and bring 'em with me.
    we aren't just loyal, we are obsessed. and we are violently so. we are baltimore, and we are the epitome of dysfunctionality.

    My gameday ritual is always so differnt...i have a few to chose from...

    I alway get up early and put everything Raven that I own on! Then i sit get my laptop and tune into streamtv and watch some pre game footage...order the beers and pizza and chill out till the games are all over....

    BTW - I'm a Villa fan...its weird having our owner being the same owner of the clowns!!!

    Well as Villa fans, you probably know what it is like to be Browns fans

    That last FA Cup was when? In the 50s?
