Tailgating at the BCS Championship Game

Tailgating at the BCS Championship Game

Tailgating at the BCS Championship Game

If there’s one thing I love, it’s college football season.  Having attended a large public university where football is its own institution, Saturdays are always spent in front of the TV watching the NCAA action.  I hadn’t had the pleasure of actually going to a game – and better yet, enjoying the tailgating festivities – in more than five years until recently.

I might as well spill it now.  I’m a Gator fan – I bleed orange and blue.   And now is as good a time as any to be a Gator fan.  In case you don’t follow college football, the Gators ranked second this year and claimed a spot to play the number one ranked Oklahoma Sooners in this year’s Bowl Championship Series game in Miami, FL.  Essentially, this is the Super Bowl of college football. 

As a Florida native, I knew I had to make it to this game.  A couple friends and I were able to get tickets and spent the day tailgating at Dolphin Stadium.  We had all the usual fixings – wings, burgers, hot dogs, drinks and of course, the perfect Gator fanfare everywhere.  We broke out our Lifetime tables and chairs for easy set up and break down.  The best part was the people who were tailgating next to us.  They had a Gator cake that rested alone on its very own Lifetime height-adjustable table.  I can’t think of a better thing to put on a Lifetime table.  After tailgating all day, I was fortunate to have scored lower level, 16th row seats where I watched the Florida Gators beat the Oklahoma Sooners with a final score of 24-14.  National Champions!!

I guess this is where I should apologize to all the University of Utah fans.  I’m sorry the Utes were “robbed” this season.  I support a playoff system.  I honestly do.  I also support my Gators and still think the outcome would have been the same.

3:30 AM came mighty early
Welcome to my first blog post. This week I wanted to blog about my experience at the NATDA (North American Trailer Dealers Association) show in Dallas Texas. Sounds like a thrilling event I know but it was actually quite interesting. I was recently named Product Marketing Manager over Utility Trailer category as well as my other responsibilities of Lawn Garden Product Marketing Manger here at Lifetime. Since the trailer category is new category for me I decided that this show would give me an excellent opportunity to see first hand, under one roof, what is being offered in the trailer market. The show could have been for Lifetime tables too since many of the exhibitors were using them to display their brochures. Backfire I was so impressed and hyped up about our trailers after the show that I purchased a 5x8 Fold-Up trail...

Where to Find Lifetime Tables
We often have consumers ask where they can find Lifetime tables in their area. The simple answer is at most every major retailer! But, here is general list: Sam's Club, Costco Wholesale, BJ's Wholesale, Lowe's, Walmart, Kmart, Shopko, and a variety of regional retailers. However, some of you who have been in some of these stores may not have been able to find Lifetime branded tables. You may have seen a table that looked like a Lifetime folding table and wondered if it really was a Lifetime table. Although most of our tables are sold with the Lifetime brand loud and proud, a few of our retail partners sell our product under their in-store private label brand. To help you find a Lifetime table next time you are out shopping, here's a quick list of some of the private label names that our Lifetime tables have: Mainstays - at...
