14 Tips for Better Tailgating
14 Tips for Better Tailgating

The tailgating season officially kicks off tomorrow with the start of college football.  So do it the right way with these helpful tips:

  1. DO Take It Easy The Night Before So You Can Get Up Early And Park As Close To The Stadium As Possible
  2. DON’T Bring Frozen, Pre-Formed Hamburger Patties.  Eating a frozen hamburger is a waste of 1) meat and 2) the minutes you have left in your life before you die.
  3. DO Bring Enough Food To Give Some To The People In Adjacent Parking Spaces.  It’s a pro move to establish good vibes with your neighbors right away.
  4. DON’T Be A Scold About The Technical Difference Between A “Barbeque” And A “Cookout”
  5. DO Bring More Ice Than You Think You Will Possibly Ever Be Able To Use.  Make sure your beer is cold and frosty heading into hours three through ten!
  6. DO Bring Something To Help Pass The Time
  7. DO Make Sure You Have A Way To Keep Up With Other Games – think HD TV
  8. DON’T Play Ladder Toss
  9. DO Bring A Football And Dent Some Poor Sucker’s Car Hood With An Errant Punt
  10. DON’T Leave A Mess
  11. DON’T Get So Drunk That You Miss The Game
  12. DON’T Forget That You Can Tailgate After The Game Too
  13. DO Walk Around The Parking Lot With A Case Of Beer Talking To Strangers
  14. DO Forget About All The Dumb Stress Of Everyday Existence While You Bask In The Greatness Of Being Free And Alive On A Beautiful Fall Weekend
