We say if you're going to procrastinate, why not do it right? Gather your family and friends to make some great food and get the most out of your few hours of freedom with these tailgating tips and menu recommendations from NCU's super fans!
Molly Migliaccio - Creative Services and Production Manager & New York Giants Super Fan
"Make sure the food you have is set-it-and-forget-it style. You don't want to be in the kitchen cooking and cleaning! You'll always miss the best play of the game and have to hear about it later!"
Jeff Wegela – Senior Re-Entry Specialist & Detroit Lions Super Fan
"Picture this – pizza, wings, cheesy bread and your favorite beverage on the table in front of you. You're kicked back in your favorite chair and watching your team win. Or in my case, watching your team get penalty after penalty! It doesn't get any better than that!"
Kevin Lustig – Senior Vice President, Marketing and Business Development & Michigan Super Fan
"I eat garlic chicken wings with buffalo sauce and ranch. Yes, they play better when I do – it's science!"
Krista Heist – Associate Director of Admissions & Arizona Cardinals Super Fan
"If you're actually going to the game, like my family does every Sunday, bring a rug or something to put on the hot ground. I recommend ours, a replica of a football field. It’s great for keeping away the heat of the asphalt, while adding a touch of ambiance to your tailgate."
Kegan Bellerby – Graduate School Advisor & Oregon Super Fan
"Watching the blazing speed and astounding pace of the Oregon Duck offense is something that can cause us fans to become dizzy and light-headed at times. I suggest a cold beverage to accompany some delectable Krispy Kreme donuts or a nice Caesar salad in order to center oneself. This should help bring one's equilibrium back to normal viewing capabilities… shoot, I just missed another TD!!"
