Gravity Head tailgate breakfast party on the WHAS-11 morning show.

The few, the proud and the insomniacs gathered at the Public House on Friday morning for a WHAS-11 television remote feed hosted by local luminary Terry Meiners.

I arrived at 4:30 a.m. to find the cameraman already in the building working on lighting, courtesy of dedicated NABC employees Jason, Kallie and Tony, who arrived at 3:30 a.m.

All along, the plan was to assemble the diehards for a tailgate bratwurst breakfast party to accompany the telvision coverage, and so it went. Kat, Timmy H., Chris Shireman and yours truly were interviewed by Meiners.

Jason Masingo grilled weenies, Jim Bell brought Krispy Kremes and took the great photos displayed below, and Ed "Coffee Guy" Needham kept us caffeinated. We had between 15 and 20 in attendance. You don't know how much it means to me that these people turned out at such an early hour.

At roughly 7:01 a.m., Jason and George Arensman had the first two Gravity halvers of the day, both Avery "The Kaiser."

Here's a roughly chronological record of the proceedings.

So, in the last picture, is he trying to give you a beer, or did you catch him stealing it?

He wanted to make sure the "Bastard" part wasn't showing.
