"Ward dinner on steroids". That's exactly why BYU tailgating will
never take hold. Nobody wants to go to a parking lot where everyone is
congregated into little cliques. The beauty of great tailgating schools (like
Ole' Miss) is that people wander and mingle with others. Sorry, but
Mormons are very cliquish and aren't prone to mingle with new people (or
share their own food with strangers).
Vegas; Sorry you feel that way, must have had a bad experience......since of
course you wouldn't be a bigot. Actually, however, the truth is we shared
food with anyone who would walk by and at the 09 OK game in Dallas we tailgated
for about 5 hours with OK fans on both sides and shared everything we brought
with everything they brought including chairs, tables, snacks,
grills...including deserts after the big game, (and tissues for the OK
fans!).No, BYU fans don't tailgate like our new found friends
from OK do or the OleMiss fans do; but we will grow it and become better at it
with time. Please come up sometime and make that 5.5 hour drive. We will make it
worth your time.
