My parents met at a football game at a tailgate party at Michigan in the mid 40s.My dad told me that the tailgate party food(after I had attended a tailgate party before a Packer game and told him what we ate)consisted of smoked oysters,crackers,pate,cheese,cucumber sandwiches,and good Manhattans. I would much prefer that type of pre-game fare.Thank you, Mr.Hoffman, for conjuring up a good memory with your post.
Sounds WAY to civilized for an Ohio State tailgate party. They have a 7 course menu—A Boloney Sandwich, plain-no mustard & a Six Pack of PBR. Post-Game, they have Ripple and left over white bread, No Boloney[;)][;)][}:)][8D]
