Last Saturday was maybe the craziest in college football history. And we had the chance to cover the pre-game to that OTHER amazing game, Ohio State/Michigan. It was a blast…and I’m not just saying that because all my immediate in-laws are Wolverines. See for yourself on our web highlight show here, and don’t miss all our victors-hailing exploits tonight on “Tailgate Fan: College Edition”, 6:30pm EST on the CBS Sports Network. #goblue
Seriously - drinking imported German Schnapps, eating donuts and stomping on Buckeyes in the freezing cold of 8am is way more fun than advertised.
A fresh tray of Michigan logo Jell-O shots? Oh you Wolverines are adorable. @tailgatefan (at UofM Tailgate)
Get ready for the pants-expanding gastro-spectacular that is Thanksgiving by joining us for a 5 minute food-filled free-for-all through a LSU pre-game party. Easily one of the best tailgates to be found from coast to coast, LSU has all the filth, fun, food and frivolity of a day well spent in New Orleans, just 90 miles northwest on a pleasant collegiate campus. And with football.
I ate more boudin in one day than I had in the previous 39 years of my life, and that’s a good thing. But that’s what happens in Louisiana is the American capitol of eating, drinking and loving life. You need to go to a game there and leave yourself a good 6 hours beforehand to laissez les bon temps rouller.
And hey, maybe you’ll run into my friend and he;ll teach you how to speak Tailgate Cajun while you’re there.
If you guys make it through a freezing cold Sunday, chock full of football, capped off by Broncos @ Pats (possibly my death knell), join me at midnight EST on @ComedyCentral for a late-night Cinema Supremo screening of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’. It’s one of everyone’s favorites, and as you’ll see from this promo, one of the most quotable of all-time. Tweet along with us using #FerrisBueller - hit us up with some good stuff and we might run your tweet during the movie. And then you might become tweet-famous. Which would be almost as cool as being The Sausage King of Chicago. Almost.
At LSU they keep their adult beverages in where the drinks eventually send them. #beercoffin
Another reason to love New Orleans? This isn’t considered a “special occasion vehicle”.
This is my favorite quote of the season so far on @tailgatefan. Tacos ‘n cigars - oh Rutgers, you’re adorable. So #JerseyStrong. Don’t miss an all-new episode of “Tailgate Fan: College Edition”, tonight @ 6:30pm EST on the CBS Sports Network.
This week’s episode of @TailgateFan is called “Tailgate Days and Scarlet Knights”, as we made our merry way through the pre-game parties at Rutgers University, otherwise known as the birthplace of college football”. Which I didn’t know until my pal Google told me last week. Pretty cool, right? First game ever, 1869. They do not, however, get to lay claim to the first tailgate. That distinction belongs to the Battle of Bull Run during the Civil War. No joke. Look it up. Rather, ask my pal Google again. Guy’s wicked smaht!
Anyway, in one Saturday morning in New Brunswick/Piscataway I came to appreciate what being #JerseyStrong is all about. And ate more pork roll than I had in my previous 39 years on Earth. That stuff is the official meat/family fun product of Jersey/Eastern PA. Pretty tasty…for a meat that makes hot dogs look like Waygu Beef.
On to LSU this weekend. And The Pants Store right after to get a size larger than I am now. Only a little eating goes on from New Orleans to Baton Rouge.
What’s left of 2 5-lb spice-rubbed beer can chickens after a cooking demo segment for @tailgatefan today. Filthy & delicious.
This week on “Tailgate Fan: College Edition” we make way (cue up your best Keith Jackson impersonation) all the way down to Tuscaloosa, Alabama to partake of a Saturday’s pre-game festivities with the Crimson Tide. And it was a hoot covered in houndstooth. These were some of the nicest, heartiest, happiest and handsomest fans I’ve ever encountered. I’ve long maintained the math for a great tailgate is pretty simple:
Losing + Cold Weather = FUN!
But winning does a body and a party good, too. This wasn’t all-out epic end of the worldness. It was just the way people that love football, good weather and a team that can’t stop winning, eat & drink together. Pretty dang fun if you ask me.
Here’s our 5-minute web highlight of Tide Rolling fun. See if you can keep track of how many times “Roll Tide!” is said during the show. First person to guess correctly wins a prize.
And don’t forget to watch “Tailgate Fan” College Edition” tonight, November 16th, 6:30pm EST on the CBS Sports Network. You can DVR it, too. That’s cool. Roll Tide.
Batman. A wool Bat-sweater. A cup of Bat-cocoa. Dare I say it’s mpossible not to love everything about “The Winter Knight”.
@TailgateFan went to Florida/Georgia this weekend, AKA “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party”. It wasn’t unfun, at all. And if said college football bacchanal is on your personal sporting event bucket list, make sure that part of the bucket gets filled. It’s a ridiculously good time. Take in this 5 minute highlight reel, then be sure to tune in to the “Tailgate Fan: College Edition” TV show this Thursday, 6:30pm, on the CBS Sports Network.
Shooting “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” episode of Cinema Supremo for @comedycentral - Cameron & Sloane should be over any minute! (at Comedy Central)
Pretty sure my Chubby Terminator from 1985 is the most intimidating costume ever. To candy. #throwbackthursday #happyhalloween
A thing of beauty, that Pru. Game 6 here we come. GO SOX!
