Today's Tidbit... A Chill In The Air
The trees are bursting with color, we’ve had a morning frost or two, and those in the know will wear a coat to this weekend’s big game. It’s not yet cold, but a chill is in the air.
Thoughts of the coming cold weather reminded me of a few images and a cartoon that combine old-time stadium seating with the impending cold.
The first image shows the crowd at a 1910 Kansas game when the well-to-do with wheels parked in front of the stands.
Moving down to Jacksonville, where it never gets cold when playing the University of the South, the stadium authorities positioned the cars behind the folks standing on the sideline.
Returning to cold-weather territory, the folks at Bucknell sat among the trees and behind the cars while cheering on the Bison.
And last, a cartoon from 1950 that connects automobiles along the sidelines to the impending cold weather.
May you find ways to keep your fanny in a hot seat at the games you attend this year.
