Hope everybody enjoyed their bye weekends. I spent mine up in the Hudson Valley and fired up my smoker and bbq-ed a huge turkey and a couple loins of pork over 7 hours with hickory flavored wood. Its nice to get out of the city and let the country boy out of me every once in awhile!
Details are still being worked out, but NYCBBB will be throwing its 3rd Annual Bills/Jets tailgate party on October 10th at the Meadowlands. We will again be meeting in Lot 16-C, and I believe there is a 4-hour rule in effect which won’t allow you to enter the parking lot until 12:00 for the 4pm game. I spoke to Kenny “Pinto Ron” and he will be there with the bowling ball shots as always. If you are asking yourself, “what are bowling ball shots?”, please check out this link: https://www.nycbbb.com/kenny/
I (and I say “I” because Matt Soreco will be away on business that weekend!) am still working out details with McFadden’s, so I will let you know about this year’s party bus and kegs of Canadian beer later in the week.
I also have a member selling tix to this sold-out game. Here they are, and please email me ASAP if you want them. First come first serve. Anybody who has looked on the internet for tix knows these are HALF what people are asking for.
