The Tailgate Conspiracy

So, what's the conspiracy? The conspiracy - perhaps better called a travesty - is that this quasi-holiday event is confined to football season when in fact it should be happening pretty much every weekend. It may sting a little to hear it, but not everyone likes football. No problem there, right? Most of us can agree (even if some of us can't <em>understand</em>) that it's possible to not like football, but to not like <a href="http://www.atgstores.com/tailgating_2930.html?linkloc=topnav" target="_blank">tailgating</a> is just ... unsettling. You've got friends, food, drinks, music, games and the freedom to participate without party affiliation or having to actually buy a ticket to anything. What's not to like about that? Fan, fanatic or simply out for fun, if you're the one dropping the tailgate there are a few things you should stow for when the party starts - and by "party" we mean any outdoor social gathering that calls for the presence of a tailgate. A few items include ... <ul> <li><a href="http://www.atgstores.com/outdoor-cooking_860.html?linkLoc=topnav" target="_blank">The Grill</a>: <a href="http://www.atgstores.com/gas-grills_2585.html?linkLoc=topnav" target="_blank">Gas</a>, <a href="http://www.atgstores.com/charcoal-grills_3819.html?linkLoc=topnav" target="_blank">charcoal</a>, <a href="http://www.atgstores.com/charcoal-grills/fire-sense-60449-hotspot-yakatori-charcoal-grill_g743519.html?linkloc=cataLogProductItemsName&amp;linkloc=catheader&amp;gpid=743519" target="_blank">portable</a>, not portable - none of this matters. What matters is that you have one and that you have the <a href="http://www.atgstores.com/grilling-accessories_945.html?linkLoc=topnav" target="_blank">tools</a> and fuel necessary to light it and keep it going for a significant period of time.</li> <li><a href="http://www.atgstores.com/outdoor-coolers_912.html?linkLoc=topnav" target="_blank">A Cooler</a>: For meats, drinks and a place to store extra ice for cocktails.</li> <li><a href="http://www.atgstores.com/outdoor-folding-chairs_2093.html?linkLoc=topnav" target="_blank">Folding Chairs</a>: Always carry one more than you think you'll need.

Mother Nature and the NCAA may have lots of rules, but they don't make the rules about tailgating.
