As you get ready for Thanksgiving this week, don’t forget the other must have for family fun: football! I have many memories of poking around my grandparents farm, a different game on in every room. My dad and his siblings has every type of football pot possible going on and there were repeated consultations over squares on the betting sheet. It was a thrill to watch the score climb and the time countdown ever close to my winning square.
Living in a college town has allowed me to capture some of the excitement of that post Thanksgiving football frenzy. The only problem is that so much of the fun revolves around tailgating. And while I love tailgating it never seems to work out. Mainly because we don’t get up early enough. Or the kids are in a bad mood. Or the thought of finding a parking space makes me all nervous like.
So when Sonic offered to send me a gift card for tailgating snacks, I brought the tailgate to us. Oh yeah, ALL THE SNACKS and ALL THE GAMES. And while Sonic is awesome for actual tailgating, if you walk through a parking lot with a flat of mini slushes you are so getting invited to hang out, it really makes football watching a home super awesome.
