2013 pubgating

I don't know if anyone has a regular spot already staked out for pubgating this year but if you haven't seen their tweet yet, the Lions are having a "tweet-up" event at the Shark Club downtown for the season opener @Cgy this Friday. Felions will be on hand selling calendars. Reservations (free) are required and will be capped at 50 attendees. Other details, including an online registration link, here:

Sports can be a peculiar thing. When partaking in fiction, like a book or movie, we adopt a "Willing Suspension of Disbelief" for enjoyment's sake. There's a similar force at work in sports: "Willing Suspension of Rationality". If you doubt this, listen to any conversation between rival team fans. You even see it among fans of the same team. Fans argue over who's the better QB or goalie, and selectively cite stats that support their views while ignoring those that don't.

I'm not on twitter but as far as I can tell it's basically an excuse, in this case at least, to go to a bar to watch a football game. With some added bells and whistles. Cheerleaders. Cheerleader calendars. Reduced food & drink prices. Prizes. I don't think you HAVE to be on twitter for it but it might enhance the experience.
