I can now see why a lot of OSU fans do not like Thursday night games. Compared to Saturday’s season opener against Louisiana-Lafayette, the tailgate scene was severely lacking today.

But put these folks on the Thursday night game bandwagon.

Meet Mike and Carrie Meyer, David and Mitzi Riggs, Valerie Pogue, Tina Schmidt and Kyle Bruce, who were very excited to show off their brand new grill bought just for today’s game. They’ve been tailgating together for about 10 years.

They all played hooky from work today and settled into their tailgate spot on Hall of Fame near the northwest corner of Boone Pickens Stadium around noon. And they got plenty of use out of their new grill, as onion burgers (what has become their Thursday night tradition) were on the menu for lunch and brats were going to be cooked later for dinner. Using the grill twice in one day? Awesome.
