Tammany Saints – Home Opener Tailgate!

March 17, 2012

To the Tammany Saints, Section 101’ers, and any other Union Fans:

The Tammany Saints tailgate is back for the 2012 home opener! We will be back in our usual spot in the grassy area by the main entrance to Lot C (provided they haven’t changed the parking lot set up!).  We will be set up by 2pm, so feel free to stop by and hang out for a while.  BYOB and anything else you think you’ll need to enjoy the beautiful weather for our home opener.

Hope to see all the old faces out there, and some new ones.  Here’s to a great 2012 season!




Union vs. DC United

September 26, 2011

Thanks to all those who stopped by the tailgate before the Columbus Crew game. We will be set up in the usual spot near the entrance to lot C for this Thursdays match against DC United. Because its during the week, I’m not sure when we’ll actually get there, but stop by if you have the chance.

Lets go Union!

Tammany Saints Tailgate is back!

September 14, 2011

After being dormant for awhile, it’s time to bring back the Tammany Saints tailgate! We will be starting up at 4:00pm this Saturday (09/17) near the entrance to lot C (see map below). This is no doubt the biggest game for the Union this season, so come out and have some beer and food and support the team! There will be a limited number of Section 101 Tammany Saints t-shirts available for sale in assorted sizes.

Because we’re just getting the tailgate rolling again, this will be a BYOBB event (the extra B is for burgers). I’ll have a grill out, and will be bringing some burgers, dogs, and snacks. But if you plan on stopping by for a while, bring some supplies to contribute to the tailgate.

If you’re an old school Tammany Saint, new to the crew, a member of another supporters club, or any sort of Union fan, stop on by and say hello.

Here’s where will be. Ask for Daron when you get there:

Love Thy Neighbor

April 4, 2011

We’ll be tailgating again this weekend, details to follow. Just a quick note that we’ve been invited to attend the ‘Love Thy Neighbor’ tailgate event by the other Union supporters groups for this weekend’s match. It’s in Lot C very close to where we normally hang out. Follow the link for details – more to come.

PS – If you like the design, check out Barktees for the shirt.

TS Newsletter – Volume 2, Issue 5

March 26, 2011
The home opener is finally here!  After opening the account last week with a win, hopefully we can make it two in a row!
Tailgating:  We begin the festivities in our usual spot, Lot C at 2:00 p.m. When entering Lot C by vehicle, when you get to the point where you hand the attendants your parking ticket, look to the right. We’ll be right there on the patch of grass. Look for the TS banner. Give us a yell when coming in – you might even be able to give us a high five from your car. Below is the map. We’ll pack up about 30 minutes or so before kickoff, if not sooner, to enjoy opening day events at the park.

Just like last year, tailgating for TS is a fun, casual and low stress affair. Please bring your own food, beer, tailgating games, balls, chairs, etc, and come and meet all of your new fellow Saints. For all members new and old, ask around for me (Armando) and I’ll get you signed up and hand you your new membership cards. We’ll have a limited supply of Section 101 shirts for sale which are first come, first served, except for those who pre-ordered before last week. If we run out, no worries – we’ll order more in time for the next home match. We still need several more scarf order commitments before we place that order, so when you sign up tomorrow, please denote which of the 3 scarves you like best in the ‘notes’ section of the sign up sheet if you are interested.
Game Time: As some of you may be aware, last year our group was known as they who lofted streamers after Union goals. That practice is no more after security escorted some of us out for doing so. However, confetti is allowed, and we used that for the rest of the season. I encourage you all to bring confetti to throw after Union goals if you can get some on short notice. I just ask that you get paper confetti instead of the shiny, plastic kind (it makes it harder, but not impossible, to drink a beer full of plastic confetti). There might be some security folks who mistakenly think confetti is not allowed, which it is, so you may not want to make it too obvious you have some if you have some, wink, wink.
Da Noise:  Building on last year and going forward through the years, we aim to make our section a more vocal section so please sing along with the Union songs. Better yet, make up your own easy to sing/remember song and pass it around. Be creative. Based on the general vibe from Section 101 last year, we don’t get too rowdy, but that doesn’t mean we can’t sing along and support the Union.
Tell Others: If you enjoy what we do, we encourage you to spread the word to your neighbors in 101 or whatever section you are in about TS.
For anyone out there reading this who is not yet a member but who is interested in seeing what we’re all about, whether you’re in Section 101 or not, please stop by Lot C and say hi. You’re welcome to hang out with us any time and join if you like.
In closing, we look forward to seeing all of our friends from last season as well as all of the new members we have amassed in the offseason.  Any questions, please email  Until tomorrow…
Just Enjoy The Game,

TS Newsletter – Volume 2, Issue 3

February 28, 2011

We’re just a little over two weeks away from the Union’s opening kick in Houston versus the Dynamo and it couldn’t get here any sooner. A quick reminder to mark your calendars for Saturday, March 19th, at 7:00 p.m., when we will be co-hosting a kickoff party at Kildare’s in Manayunk. We’ll send out another email as the date gets closer. If you plan on going, please, please, please let me know as soon as possible so I know how much space to reserve us.

The Section 101 shirts are in. As you can see, they are quite awesome. If you’ve pre-ordered one, I got you covered. If you haven’t already contacted me we still have some available for $15 each. Send me an email and I’ll let you know if we still have your size. The best/quickest way to get yours is to pick one up at the First Kick party on the 19th.
If you would like our shirt featuring only the main logo, visit Barktees and place an order there. If you would like to support a good cause, check out our newest shirt available here. All of the profit from this shirt goes to help raise money for the Bernadine Center in Chester for the Sons of Ben’s “Help Kick Hunger” campaign.  It features the Tammany Saints and our friends in the other corner, The Illegitimates. There will also be a limited number for sale at the First Kick Party.
Scarf orders keep coming in and that’s a good thing. The quicker we get to 75 commitments the sooner we’ll be able to actually place the order. In the last newsletter you got a preview of what this year’s designs might look like. After some feedback, some minor tweaking, and the addition of another candidate, we have the three finalists seen below. We need your help picking the one winner that will be produced this season. Please send an email stating which one of the three you like best.
SCARF DESIGN #1 (front and back)
SCARF DESIGN #2 (front and back)
SCARF DESIGN #3 (front and back)
If you have already sent an email stating that you want a scarf, I have you down for one. If you haven’t yet told me you would like one, now is the time. If you are a new member as of the last newsletter, as soon as we get to 75 commitments to purchase a scarf we will set up a PayPal account to collect a prepayment with the knowledge that you will get your scarf after they have been manufactured. From the time we place the order it takes about one month to get the finished product, so I hope we can get to 75 before the start of the season. If not, I’m sure that by the first or second home game we’ll have enough orders.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions. The same goes for anyone out there wanting membership information.
