Purdue's first home football game of the year is Sept. 7th and it's also the first home game for Purdue's First Black Football Coach - Coach Darrell Hazell !!! As "The Black Professionals of Greater Lafayette" I would be thrilled if we could show up en masse and support him as he takes the Boilermakers to victory against Indiana State. He also will be hosting a 211 session aka a pep rally at approximately 2 hours and 11 minutes before kick-off in Mackey Arena. Kick-off is at 12noon but 212 degrees is the boiling point and your presence at the 211 session will energize the team before they boil/play <- I hear the pep rally is set to be a show in and of itself.
YES - we will be tailgating too :) You definitely have the option to meet up with us before hand to pre-game. Please comment below what dish/drinks you plan to bring.
To make it easier for you to attend I've been able to get us discounted tickets as a group at $25 per person ($40 value) - but you must use this link:http://bit.ly/14U0833 or visit the Purdue Athletics website at http://www.purduesports.com/ and enter the promo code BLACK under “Tickets” and “Promotions”. Hopefully I'll see you tailgating with us, otherwise I'll meet you at the game!
Free kids tickets (8th grade and below) please call Chris Forte at[masked] M-F 8am-5pm.
