|2007_0901 Not the Zoo, Grasshopper|
By the time we arrived at the zoo -- around noon -- Badger fans had helped themselves to the zoo's scanty parking spaces and were comfortably tailgating. Was anyone handing out tickets? Was
anyone protecting the parking spots on behalf of the zoo? Of course not. It's for
Badger football, so it's OK.
There was no parking on the nearby streets, of course. Just people standing with signs promising $20 spots on their driveways or whatever. So we went to a playground in another part of town instead. Traffic on the way home an hour or so later was terrific! The roads were choked with busses and cars feeding in from the highways, on their way to the big game.
