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.
