Tailgate Master was featured
in a tailgating article appearing on Forbes.com. Our founder, Scott “Admiral BigGun” Backstrom was asked for some expert tips and tricks on elevating your tailgate party.
“Tailgating is a mindset, not so much an event — the party goes from several hours before the game to hours after the game, Backstrom said. “Nobody even thinks of leaving early. After the game, you have celebration drinks or condolence drinks. A tailgate is not much different than a block party or having 300 of your closest friends over.”
Invite The Right People
A party shifts into the next gear when you include the right people, being a great tailgater has less to do with having a wild side than with having a commitment to your team.
“One of the things I love about tailgating is everything else kind of goes out the window,” Backstrom said. “It doesn’t matter what sex you are, what religion you are or your political party. You get to that tailgate and it’s all about your team. Everyone can get on board with that. It’s not really about the type of person; it’s the person with the right attitude.”
That right attitude can create a great party dynamic. These days, he added, that can mean fans dressed up in outlandish outfits. Don’t be surprised, for example, to see a die-hard sci-fi movie enthusiast who’s also a football fan dressed as a Stormtrooper, but with shoulder pads and his favorite football team’s helmet.
“Nowadays it’s a lot more elaborate. It’s like costume play for some people,” he said.
