Guys in my crew sat under that pole for about 3 years until I coaxed them back with my bus.

Go Birds..

If you can walk and chew gum at the same time, you, too, could be a transit mechanic. My bus had all kinds of mickey mouse (attempted) repairs. None of them were very hard for me to fix so you gotta wonder what these guys are thinking about when a bus comes in for work.

"Get it back on the road as fast as possible and as cheaply as possible!" They sell them off every few years, why spend more for Eternabond when a $3 tube of caulk will hold long enough?

Re: 1998 E450 Eagles Tailgate Bus..

We did a baseball/football day yesterday. We were looking for you, parked in F lot a few spots away from the f2 pole. I guess you guys didn't make it down. Itís awfully tight parking over there. I like all the room we get in FDR Park..

Re: 1998 E450 Eagles Tailgate Bus..

Yeah we did, but folks jam in reall tight in spots that aren't really there after we went in. Came out and couldn't really grill real quick before we left. I think we will stick with FDR Park. I get a 1/2 acre over there. I'll try and stop by one day on my way in. Go birds.
