The more I have other people’s rugrats climbing back and forth over me during a game, the more I see myself leaned up against that fence.

We have a incline down to my perch on the fence from the walkway to the concession stand. You have kids barrel rolling into the back of your legs or bumping into the fence. Still better than sitting in the stands.

There is something magical about the fence. I've noticed I can call a ballgame 20 times better with my arms propped up on the galvanized top rail of the fence than ANY striped ref can out there on the field........true storie

You ever ate one of them blue Bearcat paw sugar cookies on a wooden tongue depressor that the boosters used to sell while you was standing along the fence?

Back in the 60s and 70s Garrison had a pecking order on the fence, you had to establish yourself as a longtime fan before you could wedge your way into a good spot.  The old timers had their places and no one challenged their spots .... there were also a few parking spaces inside Bulldawg stadium where elderly or physically challenged fans were allowed to park their vehicles at the end of the bleachers and watch the game from their vehicles ...

Hey wasn’t that you and Colmes I saw sitting outside the fence in a ‘67 Buick the last time I played there in 1990?
