From Saturday, our last home football game for the season. That’s dad’s foot and the lone pita chip that I’m pretty sure mom accidentally dropped. Just so you know. 9929’s been good to us, even if the football team hasn’t (it’s not a losing record, overall, but still). Everyone’s car had a chance, too. Tailgates included Bojangles, a tater tot-chili-hot dog casserole (fantastic with ketchup, FYI; sans the cheese), a simple chili with owl cupcakes (it’s intended for children, so I knew I could make them – substituting Sierra Mist for eggs and butter), and sloppy joes (with tater tots, hummus, veggies, pita chips, and some deer meat on the side). All in all, not too bad.
Carter-Finley Stadium, originally constructed in 1966, is home to the North Carolina State University football program. It has been through a number of renovations in recent years to allow for additional facilities and more seating. Just a few steps away is PNC Arena, home to the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes and Wolfpack Basketball.
