Rise and shine, the moment you all have been waiting for is here:
It is game day college football fans!
Today's ACC showdown at Sun Life Stadium between your Miami Hurricanes and the North Carolina State Wolfpack is set for a noon kickoff, which in the immortal words of long-time Canespacer and tailgate extraordinaire Keoki, can only mean one thing:
It's time for some kegs and eggs!
Whether you travel light and arrive empty handed or pack up the custom van and arrive fully stocked it makes no difference. There are only two rules for game day and tailgatinbg:
1. U HAVE TO SHOW UP.
2. WHEN IN DOUBT, SEE RULE #1.
This morning at 8 AM when the parking lot gates open and fans from all across the Country decend upon Sun Life Stadium to celebrate the Fall ritual that happens only a few times a year and has no equal.
There will be the sweet smell of the grill getting fired up, the sound of the tailgate music blaring and the fellowship with over 50,000 of your closest friends that all share one thing in common: their love of Miami Hurricanes football.
Even if you have not yet found the courage to purchase an inflatbale gorilla to mount atop your vehichle just for this occasion you too will still be welcome as long as you pass one test: You must bleed orange and green and pledge your alegiance to The U.
Once inside the stadium and properly lubricated, I mean seated, you will have to rise to your feet once again to cheer on the 'Canes as they run through the smoke and onto the field of battle.
As far as today's game goes our in depth analysis of the statistical data indicates both teams will score points. However, we have heard rumors on the street that both coaches will attempt to implement a super-duper, top-secret strategy: win the game by scoring more points than the other team.
We say Miami does win the game by a close score but with a convincing performance nonetheless.
