Step into the stronghold of over-the-top fandom, the world of the dedicated tailgater.
The athletes practice for hours in sweltering two-a-days to perfect the plays and get in shape. At the same time, the dedicated tailgater is planning his menu for the coming season, putting final touches on the latest outrageous costume and adding another weapon to his arsenal of parking lot cooking equipment.
On every fall Saturday and Sunday, in the hours before college and pro football teams hit the field, armies of fans descend on stadium lots and prepare for the game in style. Decked out in team finery and toting full-on portable kitchens they take over the tarmac and psyche themselves up for the big game. MODERN MARVELS® hits the road for a visit to some of the hot spots of TAILGATING. Share a bratwurst with Green Bay's Packalope, a cheese steak with the Philly Fanatic, and whatever is hot and ready with Washington's Hogettes.
From the fine china of the Ivy League to the favorite meals of the "Commissioner of Tailgating," prepare for a distinctive journey into the heart of a nation of fans.
