Since tonight is 80's Pro Wrestling Night (a.k.a. MingoMania), we're delighted to welcome "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan to tonight's game. Although we cannot guarantee that you'll get to meet Hacksaw, you'll stand a much better chance if you follow these tips:

1. ARRIVE EARLY! Hacksaw is planning to be there from when gates open (6:00) until halftime (around 7:45). He will stop taking photos midway through to perform the ceremonial first kick.
2. Use the Gate 1 Entrance! Located at the corner of E. Washington and Patterson, it will get you closest to the Fan Services tent, where Hacksaw will be located.
3. Be patient and have fun! It is MingoMania, after all...
