Different people place different value to sports. Don’t get me wrong I am passionate about my Michigan sports teams and I can tell you just as well as any other sports fanatic every single players first and last name on the U of M team and where they were scouted from and what their current position and current condition is. I follow sports to great depth since I was 8 years old.
However now at the ripe ol’ age of 49, Sports takes on a additional layer of meaning to me and one that holds more importance and significance for my life. Sports events are opportunities to bond my family and create wonderful memories for friends and family, because after many years doing tailgates, I realize one thing, I do not remember most of the plays, touch down and numerous great tackles I’ve seen but what comes to mind most prominently is all the laughter and smiles we get to have during the tailgates and during the game with the family and friends.
I have always been passionate about collecting the baddest equipment for outdoor BBQ and always had the best setup anyone’s seen in most tailgates I’ve attended, till eventually my whole family recognized my talent for BBQ and unofficially ordained me as the expert and the go to host for all these events, my popularity grew to the point that my neighbors and friends in the hometown decided to join us instead of trying to get their own equipment.
Of course I have several families help out by bringing their grill which they all connect to our giant trailer home, complete with giant 50″ display I have to say, it is quite the spectacular setup.
This is my passion and it is almost my spiritual ritual every Saturday, gathering the feast and drinks to brighten up people’s week. What warms my heart is when people walk up to me and tell me that the week went by so slow because they could hardly wait to be at my tailgate.
So follow my blog post and learn from my expertise in an area where I feel pretty darn confident in. How to become the baddest hard core tail gate host in the whole parking lot!
