  • The Commisioner's Blog
    We are now going into a new age with a new and improved site. I spilled barbecue sauce on my computer so we had to clean that up along with building a new site in this new information age.
    We need your help. I'm on the road to the Super Bowl in New York, but need your help with this website. Visit my Tell The Commish page.
    Tell your friends, bookmark this page, this is your website., "of the tailgaters, from the tailgaters, by the tailgaters" from the Tailgaters Constitution of the Tailgating Nation.

  • On My Way to the Pro Bowl...
    On my way to the Pro Bowl to tailgate at the beach. Last year went to Reno and had so much fun and food had to go back. They shut down downtown so fans come out and tailgate. Great concept and it worked and was great. This year it will be better and if you’re in [...]

  • Super Bowl Doesn’t Mean Super Tailgating
    o home team, no home field advantage. That’s what happens at a Super Bowl. It is a time to celebrate in another city and explore the best of what Tampa has to offer. For some its time to get out of the snow and just feel warm all over. Tampa has some of the best tailgating [...]

The last to be played at the Texas State Fair Grounds. (Next year Jerry World) What a great way to say good-bye to a rich history and [...]
