k, thanks ;)
So in the spirit of football season & my favorite month, I bring you:
The 5 keys to a successful tailgate
penn state style, of course.
must haves: zombie nation | sweet caroline | thunderstruck
y'all, if you know anything about Penn State, then you'd know that it is tradition to jump up and down (potentially ruining the stands) to zombie nation. You'd also know that we belt sweet caroline out louder than most (even if it is banned now), and you'd be aware of our drinking problems. Anything as an excuse to drink (please tell me you've played thunderstruck, too?)
 The Food Selection
must haves: hot dogs, hamburgers, & brauts | chips | buffalo chicken dip | sweets | pizza
...what's a tailgate without grilled & greasy foods?! And throwing out the pizza & sweets for good (hungover) measure. Don't worry, I got your backs.
 The Game Choices
must haves: corn hole | beer ball | tug-o-war | flip cup | beer pong | dizzy bat | pin the tail
I have an obsession with cornhole, tug-o-war, flip cup, & dizzy bat and so does everyone else who knows how to get down with a good tailgate :) Beer ball is too hard to explain on the blog (but does bring over crowds of people - including rival fans & cops) aaaaand pin the tail is a real like version of the age old children's' game - only difference is you pin a tail on real people all stealth like and laugh at them until they notice!
must haves: beer | vodka | bailey's | sodas | water
incase it's not obvious:
they don't call it Happy Valley for nothing. It is especially happy with the right bevvies at hand!
must haves: psu t-shirt | sweatshirt #1 | sweatshirt #2 | jeans/leggins/yogas | comfy sneaks
you obviously have to show your psu pride + look cute while being comfy (hence sneakers and yogas), but the reason for 2 sweatshirts? Just look up a forecast for State College, PA. I can almost guarantee you'll get rained on at one of your fall tailgates & will need a dry one to go into the game in.
So there you have it... Tailgating tips brought to you by yours truly :) How do you celebrate a football weekend?
