Redskins/Raven Scrimmage at FedEx Field 2006

Postby Chris Luva Luva » Mon Jul 03, 2006 10:57 am

Is this the 1st year the scrimmage is being held at Fedup? If not, how did you guys assemble in years past?

It would be cool if everyone from THN would sit together. That would make the whole thing sooo much better.

I know Im going. I think my father, Shenia, JC (Godson) and his father and my cousin are coming.

Funny you should mention it as I was just talking to Hailskins about it.

We're thinking of actually taking the whole tailgate setup and gearing up properly. I'd be interested in knowing who plans on being at the scrimmage too, to detrmine if it's worthwhile.

Sound off here.

They had one at FedEx in 2000 but I didn't go.

I assume it's going to be similar to how Baltimore set theirs up last year.

For those who could not attend.

There isn't assigned seating. You enter into the stadium with your ticket and find a place to sit. It wasn't crowded at all at Ravens stadium last year. I sat with my family and Warmother was infront of us.

Hopefully if things go like Boss intends, we'll all meet up and tailgate as usual. Then we can pretty much go in as a group and try our best to all sit together.

I plan on being there. Tailgating before with everyone would be great.

I'm sure we'll be there and a scrimmage tailgating experience sounds like a good plan! ;-)

Just an update, according to the Ravens website the scrimmage is August 5th at 12pm. How they have it posted before the Redskins and we are hosting I have no idea but hopefully this will help you guys plan.

We'll start planning this accordingly. I don't know if we'll get the full setup with Isaac's Restaurant there etc before it's upon us... but worst case scenario you might have to bring some food and drink for yourself.

We might as well start the season right, and besides... you won't get a chance to see the Canadian and his lovely missus there too often. :wink:

Sounds pretty neat. Count TRO in (plus my wife). How much are tickets, by the way?

It's not that far. Just drive down for the day. :lol:

Lots of staffers coming... definitely seems that we should do this.

I don't get to too many games from up here in Canada, so it'd sure be nice to see a bunch of you at the tailgate.

... keep sounding off here that you're coming, as we try to plan for the event.

Thanks.
