THN Away – Tailgate At Bob’s 10.11.09

By Bobby Johnson | October 12th, 2009

Well, the Redskins may not have won, but the first ever “tailgate at Bob 0119’s house” was a success.

THN members may recognize some of the attendees:


From left to right

Fios: aka Steve and writer of THN’s Weekly Six-Pack


Bob 0119: aka me


Hoss: aka Kevin and THN’s Hognosticator


Vetskinsfan: aka Dave who recently resigned his moderator’s position, but is still active on the message boards.

Things were going okay, until Direct TV lost the Fox feed and we were left watching a screen that said “No need to call us, we are working on fixing the problem as quickly as possible.”

Thankfully, I listen to the game on the radio while watching it on TV so we were able to hear what we were missing, but we missed most of the second quarter.

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I had a great time. I think it made the loss a little easier to take.

Thanks to Vetskinsfan for getting there early, for the burgers, and most especially for the beer.

My apologies to Hoss for not even trying his world famous pasta salad (I didn’t even realize that you had brought it until after you left!)

My apologies to Fios for not having a large enough cup holder, and my thanks for not spilling on my couch!

Vet, Fios, my brother-in-law Billy, and Hoss

Editor’s Note:

Sadly, Dave passed away very prematurely. He was very loved by the community and will always be missed. RIP VetSkinsFan. 🙁

  1. That’s an ugly group of guys…


    Wish I could have been there gents.

  2. No tequila? Smart move! 😉

  3. Too bad about the game, but if you have to lose better to have your brothers there to help you drown your sorrow. Sorry to have missed the fun.

  4. Sorry you had to witness that yesterday but at least you had someone’s shoulder to cry on.

    Good to see Boss back on here. Would love to hear more from you.

  5. Wish I could have made it out, guys. 🙂

  6. Frank… I’ve been blogging all season… just don’t have enough time to run the site AND participate on the boards as much as I’d like to… but you’ll find me writing two or three pieces a week… maybe more… and I’ll try get some face time in on the board soon.

    Hope you’re well.

  7. Notice FiOS has his hand in a flipper like state.

    Even though FOX sucks and the Redskins weren’t great (interpret as you will), I had a great time! My thanks to you and your wife for hosting this.
