For many Canadian’s such as myself, the art of the Tailgating is still a mystery. In the Canadian Football League (CFL) there have been attempts at exporting this American Football tradition over the border. Unfortunately it hasn’t quite established a foothold.
Why is Tailgating Popular?
You may ask what is tailgating? A tailgate parties occur in parking lots around stadiums, before the game occurs. It involves, eating, drinking and getting pumped up for the game. Although traditionally associated with football, tailgating has extended to other sports. Last weekend’s big US college football game between LSU and Alabama was indicative of the popularity of tailgating. Endless amount of RVs and thousands of people on campus arrived 24 hours in advance of the game in order to get prime tailgating spots. According to John Sherry, a University of Notre Dame cultural anthropologist, “The idea of getting out of your house and feasting and drinking somewhere else is a pretty old tradition“. Sherry went on to say tailgating “is more about sharing than it is about the competition“. I agree with his comments. Tailgating has become a big event outside the sporting game.
What makes up a Good Tailgate Party?
There are a few fundamental guidelines that go into creating a good tailgate party. First of all, arrive a few hours before game time. This will ensure that you have enough time to eat, drink and clean up before the game starts. Some venues have a restriction (typically 5 hours) of when you are allowed to start tailgating. Besides food and alcohol, music is the most important aspect for a great tailgate. Your music sound system should be small and portable. It should be powered by batteries and should be weather proof.
