As long as the Alumni team has Rem on the bench they won't lose a game.

Tickets are on sale now, last year the game sold out when nobody really knew what to expect and they are still playing in the convention center so expect an earlier sellout this year.http://ev8.evenue.net/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/SEGetEventInfo?ticketCode=GS%3aTWC%3aESPF17:ECCX06 23%3a&linkID=twcorp&_ga=2.39270243.1196571586.1496421243-878300707.1488994710

Not sure I like that. I cannot imagine either in a UW jersey. Doesn't set well.

Tickets are general admission. Any tips on how best to proceed? Doors open at 5 PM .... is the game indoors or outside? Got two tickets and figure on getting a bite to eat and hopefully chow down at the game. That may not be allowed (???).

battle of the Dogs and Dawgs will also be livestreamed? Do we have a link?

Game is indoors in the convention center. Line was VERY long last year but I think they are opening earlier to help work out the kinks. Unless you want to do bouncy castles and fan stuff the best advice I have to give is Happy Hour at the bar at Spencer's across the parking lot and then walk over around 6ish. Half price on all of their bar food items and the Calamari dish is spectacular.

Sweet - we can ditch the hats and sunscreen :) Thanks for the Spencer's tip. We'll be the ones with Zag gear on ;-)
Prolly arrive @ Spencers around 5-ish.

This is why you need to invite Mississippi Valley State!

EDIT:

Wait a minute. Who actually won? Just noticed the score is flipped in those 2 posts.

Not sure if that is correct. One of the comments said it was a typo

Actually GU 111, UW 106. Meehan corrected the erroneous tweet.
