How To Bring The Team Celebration Home With #SamsClubTailgating Essentials

Thank you to Sam’s Club for sponsoring today’s post and helping me get ready for tailgating this Football Season.

Momma Told Me: Take that racket outside!

I'll admit, in my adult years, I'm more of a baseball fan; my days of sitting on tailgates in the stadium parking lot were short-lived by my young graduation age and complete lack of direction. More often than not, in Southern California, we find an excuse to tailgate at any event involving a stadium, or even arena; hockey, wrestling/UFC, and concerts are a big draw. I know how to tailgate right, no matter the theme or season, but few incite such enthusiasm as American football. And, let's face it, the older we get the less time we have to pack up the truck bed and travel on site to support our teams in person. But just because you have a growing family doesn't mean you have to stop rooting for the home team or your alma mater.

This season why not throw a backyard tailgating party like none before? On the block I grew up on, which my father still lives, every weekend there are several 'front yard' tailgates with couches on driveways, big screens in garages, bbq's smoking, and neighbors mingling. Each household wears their team colors, and from the flagpole, beneath the American Flag, waves their teams of choice. Whether you're looking to start a tradition of your own, or simply have the biggest tailgating block party of the year, you need to stop by and check out #SamsClubTailgating Essentials, where you'll find all the hottest tailgating essentials grouped in one easy to shop online interface. From NCAA must have team gear and gifts, to the powerful Samsung Soundbar home audio support, and grilling essentials like KC Masterpiece sauce and Velveeta Cheese!

Of course there are a few rules about tailgating at home, especially when it comes to the food. Some regions get pretty intense when it comes to serving up authentic team grub (can you say Louisiana gumbo, yum!) but the general rule of tailgating is the food must be able to be prepared outside, and in large quantities. Never turn a friendly face away from your team celebration! Sam's Club members can stock up on fuss free disposable plates and cups, as well as game day Hormel No Bean Chili, and Hidden Valley Ranch (for all those buffalo wings) with the free online Click N' Pull service. You may recall this service lets busy tailgaters shop online and pick up their order at customer service in between running around looking for team body paint and glitter.

Need a little inspiration when it comes to what to serve? Anytime you can match team colors it's a win; and what better way to do that than big buy portions of your favorite candies? Put out a bowl of mixed team color Skittles with the 54oz Skittles value sized bag found on the Sam's Club Tailgating landing page. Don't worry the holidays are right around the corner and we're sure you'll find some other crafty use for those leftovers, just zip them back up in that bag! If you're really adventurous, you an even make team colored vodka, or other light spirits, by infusing them with a handful of these fruity candies one week prior to your tailgating event! Or try one of my liquid gold (Velveeta) recipe ideas; Dorito's Chicken Dip and Velveeta Fudge!

But tailgating is much more than great food and colorful clothes- you'll want some killer activities for your guests to participate in. Consider planning a tag football scrimmage at the end of the block, some old fashioned beer pong or darts, or even a soda chugging (or wing eating) contest! Most importantly, it wouldn't be a tailgate without the big game, so be sure you've got plenty of juice to bring the big game experience to you garage, living room, or backyard. Might I suggest a humble Samsung 65" 1080p 3D Smart HDTV? After all, you want a reason for your guests to keep coming back, and the eye-splitting detail of this color rich display if sure to help you smell the grass on the field as your favorite team kicks off this weekend!

What are some of your favorite tailgating (or football watching) traditions?

  2. We don't really watch football here. A bit of NASCAR. I did do a fair bit of tailgating back in NJ when we would go to several races every year but now the only tailgating I do is if I am too fast closing a gate and some poor goat get's it;s tail caught.
    ah-hem

    I don't have a Sam's Club here which is a bummer.

  14. We just moved from Gainesville (Florida Gators!) and tailgating was HUGE there. Every parking lot anywhere close to campus was filled with tailgators. For my family, we are a little lazier. It's usually Doritos and Cokes at home!

  18. No matter what else we serve, we always do a Rotel dip! Everyone loves it. If it's early morning, you can brown some crumbled breakfast sausage and add it in; always a hit.

  19. The chicken dip looks yummy! Shish Kabobs is one of my favorite tailgating meals whether we are at home or the game.
