We usually get there around 9am for a 1:00 game. I think they open the parking lot 5 hours before kickoff, which would be 8am for a 1pm game. The parking attendants usually let Kingsford Kirk into the lot a little early, since he has so much stuff to set up for cooking. He usually has his tailgate party set up by 8 when the gates open, or shortly thereafter.

I would say any time between 9 and 10 would be a good time to arrive if you want to have time to get your money's worth on Kirk's all-you-can-eat barbecue. The morning games start at 10am, so we can watch those on the TVs we have set up with satellite. We usually have 4 games on. We usually do our videotaping between around 10:15 and 11:15 I'd say. No real rigid schedule, but it's usually in that area somewhere. That way we can have a little food first and give people a chance to show up.

After the fiasco at the 49ers/Raiders game in SF this preseason, they have beefed up security....which results in longer times in line going into the stadium. They recommend that you get in line at least an hour before kickoff, so that's what we've been trying to do.

After all that....posting the info to make sure you guys watched our tailgating buddies on Tailgate Warriors....I FORGOT TO WATCH! I was so busy working on the podcast, I worked right through the time it was aired. All I had to do was set my DVR, but did I do it? NO!

Anyway, I just noticed this article that the Raiders just posted on Raiders.com about the show. It has times that it will be re-aired (Oct. 29th and 30th), so if you screwed up like I did....you get a 2nd chance to see it! It looks like it airs at the same time regardless what time zone you're in, if I'm reading the article correctly. Check your local programming guide for the dates above to see the time in your area.

Randy:
If you're coming to a game and want to drop by the tailgate, you can let us know here....and/or send us an email. You don't have to sign up or anything. You can just show up. But if we know you're coming in advance, we can make plans to meet up.

There is a map in the other folder, showing where we tailgate, but if you want to make sure you don't get lost trying to find us...we can exchange cellphone numbers prior to the game. Send an email if you want to do that.
