I went tailgating this weekend, in Seattle, with family and friends. We pitched our tent, grill, canopy, and chairs (everything needed for a successful tailgate.) Our list of food included mostly what you would expect to find at a tailgate: burgers, hot dogs, chips, crackers and dip, cheese, veggie platters, and wings. We had an array of beverages, which is obviously also needed for a tailgate- at least a successful one. There was soda, beer, wine, rum (which is my favorite), and jello shots. My five year old niece joined us, who is still new to tailgating, but she had a great time non the less. Everything went great for our pre game festivities. Because the Cougars were playing the second best team in the country, non of us were too optimistic about our teams chances. The game was close through the first half- which surprised most in the stadium- but the cougars are the cougars. Until the second half of the game everything had gone just great that day. Whoever thought the Cougars actually stood a chance may be a crazy person, or maybe just a die hard fan. After the whole day's events I was sure tired at the end of the night. In the end I am still glad that I attended the game (perhaps disappointed in my team), but happy regardless.
