FTS Top 10 Reasons to be Excited for 2014 UMaine Homecoming

Homecoming_Top10_ImageIn what’s become an annual tradition around these parts, Homecoming doesn’t just represent a chance to tailgate, meet up with old (and new) friends, and cheer on the Black Bears – it also gives us the opportunity to share.  “Share what?” you might ask.   I’m so glad you did.   In something of an homage to friend of the blog* David Letterman, each year, in the run up to Homecoming, Fill The Steins presents its…

7. The return of the CRAFT FAIR – the worlds of fudge, candles, and hand-knit doll clothing collide!

4. Because we’re gonna check out the New…New Balance Fieldhouse. 


3. Because while he may not know where Portland, Maine is, we have it on good authority that Tim McGraw DOES know where Orono, Maine is.

*Note: David Letterman doesn’t know we exist.  

** Update: #8 has been revised, we apologize for our oversight.
