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.

Lifetime Chairs on CSI:NY!
I may not be quite as sharp as the CSI team, but my keen eyes did spot several Lifetime tables and chairs onlast week's CSI:NY "Turbulence" episode! (A rerun BTW.) Some companies pay BIG bucks to get ideal product placement (meaning actually using or showing the product) in movies and TV shows. You know, like how all the American Idol judges have a giant Coca-Cola cup sitting in front of them every show!? But, sometimes, a company is fortunate enough to have its product used just because it is the ideal product for a scene. I'm always watching the background shots of various shows, especially home improvement shows, to see if they use Lifetime tables. Every once in a while, I catch a glimpse of one. But, the foldingtables and chairs in this CSI: NYepisode were pretty hard to miss. Well, for me anyway.You probably wouldn't n...
We’re on Twitter! (what does that mean?)
So this might not be news for many of you, were on Twitter! If you already know what Twitter is you can follow us over there: @LifetimeJoe and @Lifetime365. For those of you who dont know what Twitter is: In short, Twitter lets you answer the question what are you doing? and share it with your friends. Real life happens between blog posts and email. Twitter is a social media network that lets its users post short messages (up to 140 characters). People (tweeps or tweeple) can then search those posts (called tweets) for keywords, and can follow people that write stuff that interests them. You can also post your own tweets for your own tweeps to read. But this isnt an advertisement for Twitter. What wed like you to know is that were on Twitter, were posting, and were listening! What does this mean to yo...
