Hey all you SpartanThunder fans!

Come join fellow forum users at the tailgate on September 9th at 11AM!

This will be a great time to re-synch with old friends, and cheer on your Spartans to a victory over south bay rival, the Stanford Cardinal!

All users of the forums, as well as Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu, and various SJSU Sorority alumni and their families are invited to the party as well!

The game starts at 3PM versus the Stanford Cardinal, but the tailgate and reunion party will begin at 11AM sharp. We highly suggest that you call the Spartan ticket office and buy your game day tickets well in advance as this game will be a sell out!

The ticket office can be reached at 408-924-SJTX.

When you make the call, please tell Darren Coelho in the ticket office that sent you, and that you want to sit next to the other members of our tailgate crew in sections 110 or 112. Tell them that you want to be about mid way up, as already has 8 tickets in section 111, row 17.

If you have never been to one of our tailgates, then you have missed out on some very fun times. We refer to this gathering of old freinds and message board users of this web site as "Thunder-Gating".

In addition to those whom frequent this web site, there will also be many alumni from the Sigma Chi fraternity (and others) on hand to woop it up as well.

It is going to be one big "Thunder Gate" tailgate party to remember!

Our WAC fan forum message board moderator, SJGregg (AKA: Greg Eisenburg) will be flying in for the game from Utah, and our new story editors in Tony Mercado, Rick Mendoza, and Joel Bush will also all be in attendance.

We already have RSVP's from 15 message board forum users, and E mails from some greek alumni in Joe Kenny, Mike Kane, Zac Shess, Anthony Rocca, The King Bros, Skipper, John Mahoney of site sponsor "The Mahoney Company" and Cathy Stanton (to name just a few).

One of the most prominent Sigma Chi alumni known as "Johhny-B" will also be in attendance. You may have seen this Sparta-Fanatic back in the 1987-88 era's when he attended both the football and basketball games at SJSU proudly sporting a plastic spartan helmet and yelling profusely at the competition.

We recently spoke to Johnny-B at his business in Soquel, CA and he gave us the following quote...

"I am looking forward to the Spartans vs. Stanford at home! We have such a great tailgating facility a SJSU, and very few WAC colleges offer such a great location for Tailgaters. It looks like many of our old friends are coming and it is going to be a great time. I cannot wait!". supplies all of the "Thunder Gate" necessities such as tents, tables and chairs, utensils, and a game day charcoal grill. All you need to do is bring a very small cooler loaded up with your grilling items and a few six packs of your favorite grape soda (cough...cough...)!

We will also be taking orders for the new T shirts, so make sure you at least drop by to take a peek at our new design!

We will convienantly be located in the "fan fiesta" tailgate area, which is located on the east side of the stadium (near stadium way adjacent to the Spartan Village appartments). We are right next to the portable restrooms and the family kids zone. This way you can have a burger in one hand, a drink in the other, and your kids jumping away in the Spartan jump house just a few steps away from our tailgate area!

Just look for the 8 foot long banner!

Feel free to RSVP by sending an E mail to

See you all there, and IN HOC!
