Linfield Football in December and in the 'Catdome? You bet! The students are back, no more D1 football till the end of December, and a decent weather report should all be factors into a nice crowd at the 'Catdome this weekend for the regional finals. I'll try to get my game preview up tomorrow. I'm slammed at work so it's been hard to punch it out.
For those students that might be reading the blog it looks like the the Associated Students of Linfield College (ASLC) will make 200 free tickets available to students. This is according to the twitter feed of one Nic Miles. So if Nic is pulling a fast one then he's the one to drag through the streets, not me.
For those that haven't been back to the 'Catdome in sometime, Oshkosh fans, or just people that are going to come check out the action, I have a link below that lays out where the best spot is to tailgate. Linfield fans have a great reputation for being welcoming to tailgaters no matter your allegiance. So don't worry about mixing in among the 'Cat faithful. I also give you some of my favorite places around Mac and if you're getting in on Friday and are looking for things to kill some time. Go 'Cats!
