    Tailgating toys

    Started a project this summer of making a "radio ice chest" for tailgating. Bought a cheap JVC headunit w/ aux port for mp3 player, a pair of sony 6x9, a deep cycle battery. I turned my old ice chest to a boombox.

    It's freaking loud. I finished the wiring today.
    Next step is to paint a Tech logo.

    Nice work, but now where will you keep the beer?

    “It’s a great experience seeing them play. It was a good atmosphere. The fans stood up the whole game and never sat down. They have a great fan base.”

    not in that one!

    Thinking on getting a keg for the first game.

    I hope to get or make a jockey box one day. They are really cool.

    Is there any way that some will be for sale, I would be interested. Was that at your tailgating spot last year? I remember seeing one. You did a great job.

    Re: Tailgating toys

    I have a cousin who is working on a design for something similar that would also be water-proof and bouyant that could be used in the pool, tubing (i.e., floating down a river in a tube), etc. Not sure where he got with it. The biggest problem was coming up with a design that sounds good but could survive immersion (based on the assumption that many customers would be intoxicated and therefore bouyancy may not be sufficient).

    lol Brian. Thanks for the detailed explanation on tubing.

    I'm multi-tasking between BB&B and scientific writing for a research project, so I guess the detail part of my brain is in over-drive.

    After I typed "tubing" I thought, "You know, where I grew up, tubing was getting pulled behind a boat in a tube. What if somebdy thinks that is the kind of tubing this stereo is designed for." So, realizing I am writing for an international audience here on BB&B, I decided to be as accurate as possible.

    Now, I have upped the ante, and explained my explanation. We'll call it "meta-explaining."
