Video: Tailgating Eagles Fans Destroy Tony Romo Dummy

Posted by Dave On September - 29 - 2015

Nothing brings fans together like tailgating and mutual hate of a rival’s star quarterback. Why not combine the two at a recent Philadelphia Eagles tailgate party?

WARNING: Strong language can be heard on the video so make sure to put your headphones on or turn down the volume. Or don’t watch at all if curse words offend you.

Video: Louisville Chugger Fail at Buffalo Bills tailgate

Posted by Dave On September - 17 - 2015

The practice of doing The Louisville Chugger while tailgating is becoming more and more commonplace. The Louisville Chugger fails are becoming more and more commonplace too. We’ve all seen those DirecTV commercials where celebrities claim to have an alter ego that has cable TV and they implore you to “don’t be like this me”.

When tailgating, don’t be like this guy…

Power. We all use it. Whether at home, in the car or out tailgating, we all use power. And if you are like most of us, we could always use more. More importantly, running out of power really sucks.

Mojo Refuel Invictus 6000 Battery Case for iPhone 6 Plus

While tailgating, our smart phones tend to consume a lot of power. Whether you leave your Bluetooth on or your phone is constantly searching for a WiFi signal, your phone is draining its power constantly. Add to it that while out tailgating, everyone else has a smart phone in their pocket and they are all drawing on the same cell towers and pulling data from them. With higher competition for data and bandwidth, your phone can drain quickly. Lastly, if you are a social media butterfly and will post photos and status updates while out tailgating or the constant texting with others to let them know what to bring or how to find you, your battery could be dead before you even get into the game. Fantasy football (and baseball) geeks, checking their phone to get the latest on how their fantasy team is performing will kill a battery. What you need while tailgating is extra battery life.

Unfortunately, the most popular smart phone manufacturer, Apple, does not make the iPhone with removable batteries. If they did, you could have an extra battery and just switch them out when your first battery got too low. iBattz came up with a solution and created the Mojo Refuel Invictus 6000 Battery Case for iPhone 6 Plus.

The Mojo Refuel Invictus 6000 Battery Case for iPhone 6 Plus is a removable battery case that provides 6000 mah boundless power, but also gives your iPhone 6 Plus full protection against impact and shock in a slim, snug fit profile. Included with the product is a premium clear 9H tempered glass screen protector to give extra frontal screen protection in case you drop your phone in the parking lot or any other hard surface.

Putting on the Mojo Refuel Invictus 6000 Battery Case for iPhone 6 Plus is quite easy too. Take a look at their demo video:

We had a chance to check out the Mojo Refuel Invictus 6000 Battery Case because I currently use an iPhone 6+. (Disclaimer: We received a Mojo Refuel Invictus 6000 Battery Case for iPhone 6 Plus sample. The fact this sample was provided to us free of charge in no way influenced our opinion of the product nor did it impact our ability to test and review the product fairly and objectively.)

Since testing out the product, we have dropped the phone (not intentionally) a few times and the screen protector and the case itself has protected the phone from any blunt force impact damage. The battery life is double compared to if I was using a normal phone case without an external battery. I merely charge the phone and battery case at night. Even if I know I will be using a lot of power from my phone that next day, I am not worried I will run out of juice.

After using the Mojo Refuel Invictus 6000 Battery Case for iPhone 6 Plus for about a month now, it is definitely “Tailgate Approved”. For those of you who follow Tailgating Ideas on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, have no fear, the photos and social media updates will continue fast and furious throughout the upcoming football season and beyond. I won’t run out of battery so the Instagram photos of what is on my grill will keep coming no matter how late in the day it becomes.

Camo Caps

Camo Caps before and After

One of our more popular blog post that taken in thousands upon thousands of visitors despite being almost two years old is the best ways to smuggle alcohol post from August 2013. Apparently there are quite a few tailgaters out there looking to bring in their own hooch past security in order to save a little money on the inside.

We recently discovered a new product that helps the booze smuggling nation do it in a smarter way and a means that will slip past security without detection. They are called Camo Caps and they are an ingenious way to re-seal your open water bottles. We did a video demonstration on how these little guys work.

As you saw in the video, the package includes six (6) Camo Caps that will reseal opened water bottles with any clear liquor inside. Most stadiums and venues will allow you to bring in your own water bottles as long as the cap is still sealed. These little Camo Caps will slip by security undetected and priced at $5.00 for a package of six, they pay for themselves the first time you use them.

We got our Camo Caps from Spring Break 24-7.
