Default Tailgating anyone?

The TG's at Giant's stadium used to be awesome. You could walk around
the parking lot and socialize and trade food.
The TG squad now patrols the lot and dampers the fun a little. They
want you in your own spot and not in a an adjacent parking space.
So your setup has to be in the same parking spot as your car. I tow a
trailer and take 1.5 spots. I tell them I drove two vehicles to the
game and need two spots.
So far just a sideways look and they leave.

Isn't parking still tight because they built a new stadium? It might ease
up after things settle down.

Today at my game, long story short I wound up waiting in the outdoor
stairwells to keep out of the rain. The stairs overlooked the
handicapped parking area. Something caught my eye and I realized
that people were parked in handicapped and taking up the next
space (or two) with their canopies and their other tailgating stuff.

People who also had handicap rights kept driving by slowly
looking for a spot. One guy finally got a group to move their
stuff so they could squeeeeeze into the space. Then he helped
his elderly passenger with double leg amputations into his
wheelchair to go into the game.

Imagine? Of all people, shouldn't the people who use handicapped
parking know not to take up extra spaces?? It's a different matter
from your situation where some people do wind up taking up
extra spots. I don't understand why the police weren't right
there writing tickets.

See what you did, set me off. (laugh)
