Tailgate prep is serious business...

The last few days I've been getting ready for the Pats game, just getting things planned out, who's bringing what, etc, and my Wife has been having a great time making fun of me.

'You don't plan out vacations as well as this tailgate thing. I'm going to have to come see this extravaganza someday,' she says.

Hey, tailgating is serious business! If it's not planned out right, you'll show up to the stadium and there'll be a bunch of guys looking at each other saying, 'I thought you were supposed to bring the beer!'

Can you imagine the horror?

Well, that's where I come in. It's my job to make sure that kind of thing does not happen. The last few days, I've been making sure the sausages, peppers, onions, various meat and meat by-product based foods, as well as other artery-clogging substances, and of course, beer, are all being taken care of.

Don't make fun. Tailgating is serious business my friends...

Ok, maybe the whole planning thing got a little over the top when my Dad started sending out spreadsheets of who's bringing what...

My sister-in-law and her friend will be coming to the game with us. When she saw the list of the suggested items we'd be cooking, she asked if maybe she should bring any fruit or vegetables to kind of even out the 'meat-fest,' as she called it.

'Hmmm,' I said, 'you mean like pineapples and limes stuff? Are you going to make some frozen tropical drinks or something? That would be cool.'
