a little help.

Apparently there has been some confusion over ordering shirts from the official Killer Nuts Tailgating site. So to make sure we can all get the goodies we want, here’s a step-by-step walkthrough:

1) Go to the store by clicking here:

2) Find the style you want.

3) In the window for that style, select the size you need in the drop-down menu (see below).

4) When you’ve picked the size, click on the shopping cart icon (see below), and that selection will be added to the cart. That will take you to a page where you can choose to proceed to purchase or continue shopping. If you continue shopping, you’ll go back to the store page, where you can make additional selections.

5) When you’ve picked out everything you want, hit proceed to purchase. You’ll go through successive screens where you enter shipping and billing addresses and credit card information. (If you have a PayPal account, you can also elect to pay that way — it will automatically take you to your PayPal account to complete the transaction.)

6) Finally, you’ll land on a page where you review your order. Click “Place your order” at the bottom of the page and you’re all set.

If you haven’t checked out the store since it was announced here a couple weeks ago, you should take a look. We’ve filled a couple of special requests — white Ts with red or gray letters — and we’ve added hoodies in scarlet or gray. And if you’re ordering soon, you have them in plenty of time for that last tailgate party of the year.

Additional questions? Additional requests? Just lemme know.



In the previous post, I mentioned the possibility of starting the Michigan tailgate a little, uh, earlier than usual. And if you check the comments on the post, you’ll see that there are at least two others who think that 7 a.m. sounds like a perfectly reasonable time to begin.

And that sounds good to me.


stretch run.

If you hadn’t noticed — I hadn’t either, to be honest, but Crappydad pointed it out to me — the schedule for the rest of the year has been set. Here’s a look:

Penn State, 3:30. I’m very happy that this is an afternoon game, because we can give it the kind of tailgating attention it deserves. Yeah, I know, Penn State just became bowl eligible and they’re not having the kind of year that makes Happy Valley especially happy, but for me anyway, this game is second only to the Team Up North on the Big Ten schedule. And I’m looking forward to it as usual.

Iowa, 3:30. This one is tricky. No tailgating for a road game, of course, but the afternoon thing makes me unsure about where to watch. I’m 1-1 watching games at home, so that doesn’t really have a bearing on my position. Do we go out? Load up on stuff and stay home? Suggestions?

Team Up North, noon. I’ll be honest — I loved it in 2006 when this was a 3:30 game. Granted, that one was kind of a special circumstance, but damn, a long tailgate party for the Michigan game was the right way to go. But noon is the traditional spot for this one, and we’ll do as we always have … except that I’d like to do it even earlier than normal. Is a 7 a.m. start too much?



I’m curious to hear whether any of the other KNTers remember a scoreboard video clip where the girl tackles the penguin in the back yard. It was kind of similar to this:
