Tailgating with the Tide– Penn State

This was our first weekend to tailgate and honestly, I am not happy with the way it turned out. We love to tailgate. We love the food and friends and the “football family” that we have. I don’t love when that family takes advantage of us and I feel that was done this weekend. We invite people here. We cook and order food and provide a tv for people to watch. Some( NOT ALL) of these people, decided to invite other people. Which, is fine. The more the merrier. But these people that we invited, didn’t provide a damn thing to the tailgate. 
Not one drink. 
Not one dip. 
Not one dollar towards the cost of the food. 
So, they bring strangers to our tailgate. Strangers that were never introduced to us. That sat in my chair.
That ate my food.
That drank my beer. 
All without contributing anything to tailgate. 
I looked up at one point and I am serving cake to a Penn State fan. Where did he come from? I didn’t invite him. 
When we got back from the game, there was trash everywhere. In food containers, just a couple of beers and water left in coolers, and no one helped me clean up. Only Joseph and Tracie helped us break down everything. It was after midnight before we were finished. 
I don’t like the rudeness that was shown to me this weekend. I will no longer be providing food and drink to ANYONE. And if you come? Please, for the love of God, bring your own chair!!! 
Enjoy the pictures from this weekend!

Tracie and Poppy discussing BBQ and the importance of white sauce.
Happy Birthday, Bear!
Robbie– do not destroy my cake. I will hurt you.

John… put your finger down! ;)
Sometimes.. it requires concentration.
Hey girl in the background… close your mouth!
My favorite part? Looking at the shakers shaking!
Victory over Penn State!! It was super cool to look out and see JoePa on the field! Penn State fans rock… super nice crowd and they travel well!

  1. I have to say I am pretty impressed with your tailgating skills!!! I'm sorry they were so rude to you! Don't let ungrateful, rude people ruin it for you though :)

    & Congrats on the win :)

  2. We had the same rudeness at our tailgate! I had friends inviting friends of friends.. and the best part? They were SMOKING. Not like, one cigarette, but like, 5 people chain smoking. While sitting in our chairs, under our tent, a mere 5 feet from where I was sitting. Seriously? They then proceeded to drink Justin's beer and leave a nice pile of empty cans and cigarette boxes for me to clean up. I was one unhappy pregnant lady by the end of the day!

  3. Just set up tent in a whole nother(is that a word?) spot and only tell certain people. :)

  4. now that's how you tailgate!

    minus the rain, of course. you look lovely btw. love the spirit and the cake!
