Pete\'s Tailgate Posse
Sipping on a beer keg. Recent Oklahoma State University graduate Bryan Schooley and his brother-in-law, Ryan Senters, bought a 1985 Blue Bird school bus on eBay last year and dubbed it Pete's Tailgate Posse. Naming it was the easy part. The tough part was transforming the old clunker into the tailgating tank it is today. Neither man works in construction or engineering, so the bus customization was done "totally on the fly," Senters said. Using old movie theater seats purchased from Habitat for Humanity, Schooley and Senters outfitted the bus to seat about a dozen people. They also installed a new floor, a sound system and two flat-screen televisions. One flat-screen is mounted on the outside of the bus, and the other hangs inside the bus above the back door. "Next up, a bar," Senters said. About 40 people huddled outside and inside the bus to watch the OSU-Georgia game Saturday. They were mostly old college friends, and many had new wives or husbands in tow. A few young children tossed a football and played washers while the twentysomethings mingled, drank and laughed about their not-too-distant memories from college. "We still party," one young mother said. "But it really isn't as crazy as it used to be."
