The Night before Tailgating No, I’m not going to do a parody on “Twas the night before Christmas.”  Sorry.  Well, not really sorry.  Just not going to go there.  I have been asked a few times how I get all of the stuff we bring to a home tailgate into the car(s).  In years past, I was limited mostly to a single car, so this year with us bringing both cars to the home games, it is somewhat easier.  But it still takes some thought, planning and more time than I like to admit.  Typically, it takes about two+ hours for me to load upRead More →
