So, today is the last home game of the year for the Sun Devils and the season that could have been marches on. Thanks to some new faces and to some of the best BBQ around, our RailGating fun has been awesome this year.
For Black Friday, we have decided to change the location of our RailGating festivities, and we will be joining GRT2 Studios for a little bit of food and fun before ( and during ) the game at the super-cool Studio 5C rooftop balcony overlooking Sun Devil Stadium.
At Friday’s game, for the FIRST TIME EVER, the legends of Arizona State University Football will be appearing together on Frank Kush Field. These ASU football legends represent the first segment of what will become the ASU Football Ring of Honor and Scholarship Society. Legendary Coach Frank Kush is going to be joined in this inaugural class by Wilford “Whizzer” White, Bobby Mulgado, Ron Pritchard, Danny White, John Jefferson, Mike Haynes, Randall McDaniel and Pat Tillman. (Pat will be represented by his longtime friends and teammates Keith Poole and Steve Bush.) At halftime, these ASU football legends will be honored, but all Sun Devil Fans are able to meet and greet them prior to the game from 11:45 AM to 1:00PM at the Sun Devil Club Tailgate in Wells Fargo Arena. So, if you aren’t joining us at Studio 5C, you might want to check out the happenings at Wells Fargo Arena. ( I’ll probably do both. )
One thing to remember as you decide to take METRO on Black Friday is the fact that they will be running a Sunday schedule. ( 20 minutes between trains ) Yeah, I know… Boo, hiss for running 20 minutes between trains on a busy shopping and fun day of the year. In their infinite wisdom, METRO decided that Thanksgiving AND the following Friday should be a holiday schedule. I understand Thanksgiving but think Friday is pretty lame. I believe they will be running a normal light rail schedule on Saturday for those of you heading to Ice Skating at CityScape or to the Tempe Fantasy of Lights Parade.
Below is a map showing some other choices for potential fun near the stadium for people to get their RailGating groove on. Whatever you do, go to the game, cheer for the Devils, have some fun and wear gold!
