Cowbells and Riverboat Horns

Anyone going to Knoxville for the Mississippi State-Tennessee game? We are going early with my parents and plan to spend the week prior in the mountains. Hubby, Dad, and I are all Bulldogs and Momma graduated from UT so we're all excited about the trip. My mom said she use to take the party boats back in her sorority days and that this the best way to travel to the UT games, so it should be a lot of fun. They still have limited space available on the boat, so pass the word.

Cruise to the MSU-UT football game aboard the ‘Bulldog Battle Boat’
Bulldog fans heading to Knoxville for the Mississippi State vs. Tennessee football game Oct. 18 can take part in one of the great traditions of SEC football – arriving at Neyland Stadium by boat! Neyland Stadium is nestled up against the banks of the Tennessee River. By the thousands, Big Orange fans go to home games by boat, tying them together for a floating tailgate party, hours … if not days … before kickoff. They call them the "Volunteer Navy."

Cruise to the stadium in style and avoid game day traffic aboard the ‘Bulldog Battle Boat.’ The 200-passenger riverboat will board at Marine Park, approximately five miles downstream, and drop its passengers off approximately ½ mile from Neyland Stadium. Owned and operated by the Tennessee Riverboat Company, the boat will be at the Marine Park at 2:00 PM for all to board. The riverboat will provide a direct return after the game.

Reservations are now being accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The cost is $50 per person and includes boat passage and a sandwich lunch. A cash bar will be available, and a DJ with MSU ties will be aboard.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a good and safe cruise. For whatever it's worth, I keep one of my MSU cowbells in the cubicle in which I work. I don't ring it for obvious reasons, but it's there.
