英会話ブログ その730     Tailgate  Party (2)

2015/12/06

What sort of foods are popular for tailgating ?  Basically any food which might also be taken to a picnic, such as hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, salads, and chicken wing, to name just a few.

Tasty, high-fat or high-calories dishes are especially suited to tailgating, although some health-conscious fans might substitute vegetable dishes for the usual BBQ meat and potato salad.  Mexican foods, such as chili and burritos are also common at tailgate parties.

Although tailgating is done at many American sports games, (including baseball and basketball), it is most common at American football games, especially college games.

For residents of the US southern states, tailgate parties have become a major part of the game experience, in which fans dress in team jerseys, sometimes wear crazy costumes, and generally have a great time drinking beer, swapping food and chatting with other fans.

The pre-game broadcast and even the game itself can be watched on portable TVs.

The NFL (American football professional leage) banned tailgate parties from the Super Bowl, saying it posed a security risk.
Fans were not pleased, but can still enjoy tailgating at many other events...                                 (G.K)
