Tailgating

August 22, 2013
By

Tailgating is the new thing to do before any football game. It is even coming to high schools. Some of these parties begin six hours before the kickoff, and some of the guests do not even have tickets to the game. A TV is set up and they watch the game from the parking lot. A whole new line of equipment has been developed to make the tailgating easier, and more like the backyard picnic. No longer are hot dogs and burgers the main course. We now have ribs, skewers, elaborate casseroles, and whatever you might think of to eat on the menu. Elaborate tents, grills, ovens, and liquor dispensers are purchased and lugged to every game. The menu is planned early in the week so all the ingredients are in place on Saturday. Everyone is assigned something to bring or pay for, and the party is on. Universities now hire extra police to patrol the parking lots to make sure the party stays a party and the goodies are not stolen or destroyed. Pack ‘n Plays are set up for the young ones, and the older ones have their footballs and Frisbees. Some people have even purchased vehicles to transport all this important gear to home and away games. If the weather cooperates, the party might start at 7 a.m. and go well into the night. Some of the tailgaters probably don’t know who won the game, but boy, did they have fun; come next Saturday they will be raring to go again.
