Perhaps the best thing about big games is the tailgate.Â You can never count on a hyped game living up to the hype.Â The tailgates are somewhat more reliable.Â As my few readers know, I missed this hyped tailgate for a wedding.Â But all reports indicate that it was one for the ages.Â Marathon washer games, inappropriately shortÂ intervals for the shot chair, and a large crowd filled to the brim with tailgate recipes to behold.Â The Fan is looking forward to getting back in the groove with a tailgate this weekend with Buffalo and then the big one next weekend at Michigan.Â When PennStateTailgate.com goes on the road to Ann Arbor (is a wh*re) only great times happen.Â
