Saturday, September 5th marked the first Clemson home game, and our first tailgating since 2006 season. Ricky held back his tears as he remembered missing the last 2 seasons of games while we were serving in Zambia. Clemson beat Middle Tennessee 37-14, even though it rained the 2nd half. It was not easy making it to our new parking lot this year. You can see from the picture the aisle where cars would enter to find their numbered spot. Every time a car came through, we all had to move our tents, chairs, and tables. We had a spread of appetizers and chicken wings/fingers. I was very proud of my cream cheese Tiger paw covered in Sweet Pepper Jalepeno Jam (by Tastefully Simple)! We celebrated Coby's 11th birthday during half-time with a football cake, and after the rains came down we packed up the tent and food and went home.
