This week's tailgating
 
Last week the game was at noon, hardly time to make anything
worthwhile. That's why so many people were cooking up taylor ham
breakfasts.

This week it was ribs. Must be because of the late start, I saw that
other people brought ribs, too. Plenty of burgers and hotdogs on
the grill, too. I made spare ribs (oven style, finished in the broiler).
Man they were good.

Heh, big week, big crowd, it was homecoming. This woman I'm not
familiar with sat behind me. Behind being the operative word. She
kept shoving her boot toe into my butt crack. Woah, lady! Finally
I moved over to a place where she couldn't get me. All the time she's
loud blahblahblah about who knows what, not the game. (laugh)
Suddenly Ron whips around, Could you not do that? That toe of hers,
has a way of finding butt cracks. Alarming.

Second half, she comes back blah blah blah and I hear her say, you
know Giada DiLourentis? What the? Fortunately the team did something
good and everyone cheered and I couldn't hear what she had to say about
Giada.

One fun thing was that at the beginning of the game all of a sudden right
over my head baddabaddabadda three National Guard helicopters swooped
over the stadium. And the crowd went wild! (laugh) It was cool.

Anyway, next week it's stromboli, can't wait. That'll be it for tailgating
for
a while.

Was that the Rutgers - Ohio game? 24 to 7? You never give the score.

(laugh!) Acause nobody cares, until my team stinks up the joint,
then everyone will bust my chops. That's the way it works.

In practical terms, how does 'tailgating' work now? Sounds like you were
sitting in stands rather than on the tailgate of a car. It's a long time
since I've seen a car with that sort of tailgate.

In the UK, tailgating is driving too close to the car in front.

Thanks

Oh, no, you hang out in the parking lot before the game. Or, for a
lot of people, during. Usually people set up tables, grills, etc.
Sometimes it's pretty elaborate. I saw one group had hired a
caterer who wore his chef jacket and everything.

Usually people have a bar set up, even if it's just a cooler.

True here, as well.

Thanks. That's much fancier than I thought.
