We are “those people”. Back in the day when I was a freshman at the University of Georgia, tailgating on campus was still legal without a permit and every home game weekend the onslaught of RVs, trucks & trailers from the ‘burbs and beyond would descend upon the Classic City or rather, our dorm areas. We (being ignorant freshman) would ruthlessly make fun of them and all of their gaudy gear…you know, “those people” are here again! Those people ranged from alumni, random fans, current students, families etc…but mainly we just thought they were old and weird.
We are now those people, and we embrace it. I met Mr. T at a football event and soon after, he introduced me to his band of tailgating brethren. Wow, how eye-opening it has been! From TVs to blenders to games to overall debauchery, I discovered how fun Saturdays and Sundays in the Fall can be. And concerts in the Summer! Who knew you could basically make a tailgate out of every event.
We are friends to all and friends of all teams are always welcome to our tailgates.
Thanks for stopping by. As someone who is usually scouring the web for tailgate ideas and tailgating inspiration, I hope we can provide a few of our own.
This blog is for us. And all of those people.
