  1. As a season ticket holder to White House Blue Devils, Vanderbilt Commodores, Tennessee Titans, and Dallas Cowboys. I am very excited for the move to Vanderbilt. I will start tailgating on Thursday afternoon for the Blue Devils game then go to my seat for the Vandy game on Saturday, then go across town for the Sunday noon game at LP field, and last but not least hop a plane to Dallas for the seven PM game of the Cowboys!! Go Blue Devils! Timmy

If you’re really that tore up about the move, as your writing seems to appear, then make a call to the city and ask what the real reasoning is behind the game being held at Vandy.

    Go Blue!!
