The first Saturday in September is a day celebrated by football fans across the United States: it signifies the beginning of football season. National Tailgating Day is NOT a nod towards driving incredibly closely behind another vehicle, but instead, it is a time in which we gather outside stadiums to grill food, share a beer, and stir up support for our favourite team from the tailgate of our trucks or trunks of our cars. Tailgating is as much a part of a football game as are hotdogs and chillis. Rock your team’s apparel, meet your friends, light the barbecue, and raise the spirits for your team on National Tailgating Day.
