Tailgating Recipes!



Hello, friends. I hope you’re well. If you would today, please take a card out of the deck. Now I’m not going to look, and I want you to put the card back into the deck anywhere you want. Now shuffle it. Now I’ll take the deck. Is this your card? I thought it was.

Friends, though this past weekend in Nashville failed to deliver the desired results for our beloved Cats in the new Stoops era, it nonetheless kicked off another Kentucky football season, which means soon will come the falling leaves, the cooler climes, and the warm aroma of tailgating around Commonwealth. This weekend, as you no doubt well know, is the Wildcats’ home opener against the Miami RedskinsHawks, and I’m sure you’re more than prepared to head down to campus and get your tailgate on. As always, I’d rather light a candle than curse your darkness, so I thought I’d weigh in today with some of my favorite tailgate recipes guaranteed to keep everyone happy on Saturday morning. Good luck, get cooking and I’ll see you here next week, gang.

    If consistency is the hallmark of excellence, Mr. Tomlin is most definitely excellent. Because he is consistent. Of course, he SUCKS, but he is consistent. Seriously, how many times can one write essentially the same thing?
