Hubby and I have very different ideas about tailgating. Color me shocked.
Here's how I prefer to tailgate:
Leave home hours before kickoff to get a prime parking space.
Set up the television and satellite outside and share the experience with other tailgaters. Pull for whoever is playing against Florida and South Carolina.
Snack all afternoon, until it's time for the real meal (pulled pork sandwiches this week).
Leave for the stadium an hour ahead of kickoff, to allow for the one-mile walk and to make sure we see all the pre-game ceremonies.
Stay for the whole game, counting off the seconds at the end. Especially if it's a close game.
Come back and celebrate with the other tailgaters.
Leave home hours before kickoff to get the preferred satellite spot.
Set up the television and satellite inside the RV with the air conditioner on, even if it IS the first day of fall and it's a nice day outside. Pull for any teams you have bets on. Switch to golf when football games aren't going your way.
Snack all afternoon, until it's time for the real meal (pulled pork sandwiches this week). Okay, so that part is the same.
Leave for the stadium as close to kickoff as possible, because the pre-game stuff can't possibly matter. Actually, it wouldn't be a tragedy to miss kickoff.
Leave the game as soon as the outcome is obvious, even if it's only halftime.
Come back to the RV and head for home as soon as traffic clears, even though your parking pass is good for the whole weekend. Except for days like today, when kickoff isn't until 7:45 PM, so spending the night only makes sense.
Not that I'm complaining. It could be worse - He could be a Florida fan. Oh wait...we would never have been together.
