Why flipped over do you ask? Because our own MVPOV’er Commenter and Crazy Supporter of the blog, Bernie Blystone (alias “BigB“) has just had delivered to my house a gift that will keep giving.
Hernias that is. I came home from the gym to see a huge box leaning up against the side of my house. When I opened it – it must have weighed 100 lbs – I found a Submarine’s Periscope inside.
No, really, it could have been one, it is that big. But it is a… drum roll please… a 20 ft telescoping solid 4″ diameter aluminum flagpole and with a heavy-ass base that goes under your car wheel when you are using it.
This bastard pole is so big when I opened it the top was at my house’s roof height. Honest to God it is the Mother of all flagpoles and at 7ft when ‘flaccid’ it will just barely fit into my car for the trip to Pittsburgh for the tailgates and games.
Here the cool part – aside from the Partying Panther’s boss RV at the games (>) which is an icon of Pitt football itself, we’ll have the most visible thing around.
It fits right in – I’m 6’6″ tall, have a big nose and sport a 20′ flagpole… well, you can guess the rest.
I can’t wait my friends – it is shaping up to be an awesome Pitt POV Season and thanks to all for making it happen.
Here’s what the flags will look like:
