The Big Game

That’s right, this weekend OSU faces UM. This is a huge rivalry and I plan on watching the Buckeyes crush the Wolverines this Sat at noon! Depending on interest, this may be held at my place or we may just meet at Pazzo’s or something. Let me know if you’re interested!

Oh the good life.

It’s the last home football game of the year, and the last chance to tailgate this season. Let’s do it right.


Also, Vanderbilt sucks.

Remember, the game is at noon, so we’re starting early. This is a morning tailgate, so we’ll do breakfast foods and drinks such as screwdrivers, mimosas, and, of course, beer.

What: Morning tailgate (last chance to tailgate!)

When: Saturday, 7 a.m. to gametime and post-game time

Where: Commonwealth Village, 1435 Nicholasville Road (Google maps view here)

What to bring:  Eggs, sausages, biscuits, etc. — other breakfast food items, Folding/camping chairs

Really don’t forget to bring: Beer, makings for screwdrivers and mimosas and bloody marys, etc.

We’ll have a football and volleyball, but does anyone have a cornhole setup?

So I do not know about you all, but with Comps and all I will be too overloaded to make the trip home for Thanksgiving (I imagine my family will not want to deal with the stressed out mess that will be me anyway).  So I will be here in Lexington and I plan to spend the day at the Catholic Action Center (a sort of homeless community center) serving Thanksgiving dinner.  They are in need of a few volunteers because most of their student volunteer base goes home for the holiday.

If you want to join me, please let me know  via email by this Friday so that I can give my contact a solid number to rely on.
THanks all!

HA! Your mascot is upside down in this image, Georgia. Like upside-down cake, that means defeat!

It’s homecoming this weekend and the Kentucky Wildcats intend to beat up on Georgia. Other than Fausto, I’m sure we’re all on board with that.

Prior to the 7:30 game on Saturday, I propose we tailgate at my place in Commonwealth Village, on Limestone/Nicholasville Road, within view of the stadium.

I think this place is a motel purchased by the university and converted into student housing. The university fun-haters even filled in the pool. Thankfully they accidentally installed some fun-producing devices, such as a volleyball net, picnic tables and some grills. There is some wide-open grass for those of you who like to leap and frolic.


What: Tailgating at Jeremy’s

When: Saturday, Oct. 23, 3:30 2 p.m.

Where: Commonwealth Village, 1435 Nicholasville Road (Google maps view here)

What to bring: hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, veggies. Also BYOB. If someone has cornhole (or “bean bag toss”), that would be nice. Some folding chairs if you have any.

Parking: I’m very close to the stadium, so parking gets crazy at about noon on game day. Seriously, people several blocks further away from the stadium are selling parking spots in their backyards for $15. Crazy. Anyway, I would recommend parking as close as you can and hoofing it the rest of the way, or carpooling and doing the same.

Give me a shout-out somehow so I know how many to expect. Leave a comment here, text me at 605-593-3087 or email me at jfugleberg@gmail.com

NYT/Tim Hetherington/Outpost Films

First, business:

Movie: 7:40 p.m., Kentucky Theater, $7

After: Downtown, all around.

Here are the details for Restrepo. the gritty documentary was hand-camera shot by author Sebastian Junger (“The Perfect Storm”) and Tim Hetherington who spent a year with a US Army unit in the Korangal Valley in Afganistan.

By all accounts, an awesome documentary. Rottentomatoes.com gives it a 96% rating, saying: “Forsaking narrative structure for pure visceral power, Restrepo plunges viewers into the experiences of soldiers on the front lines of the Afghan War.”

The New York Times reviewer says:

“Restrepo” avoids the conventions of documentary film: there is no back story, no drive-bys with experts for context, no underlying ideology or obvious message. The viewer is dropped into war, with a hard jolt, and resides, along with 15 soldiers from Second Platoon of Battle Company of the 173rd Airborne Brigade, in a remote and raw outpost called Restrepo, so named after one member of the platoon who is killed early in their rotation.

After the movie, we’ll head out to check out the WEG’d-up Lexington downtown. There are a few acts playing on the stages, and all the venues will be open. Remember, open container is legal all over the downtown area, so enjoy that while you can.

Who is this man? He looks cheesy and boring. Yet he is neither. Check out the panelists link in this blog post.

The names are out, and they should make this conference a good time.

Some of these people you should recognize, especially if you’re interested in the Middle East at all.

Check out the sweet line-up of panelists.

I’m referring to the Middle East Institute conference in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 3-4. We went last year, and we’ll go this year.

If you’re not signed up yet, get on board by going here.

Also, start thinking carpool.
