Need a little incentive to get fired up for the upcoming college football season? Take a look at this video, a 10 minute mini-documentary on tailgating at The Grove.
So you are the master flip cup player. Your tailgating crew can out flip any of the weak ass pretenders in the parking lot. Are you tired of schooling everyone and not having any real flip cup competition? Then it is time for you to gather up five other players, scrounge up $180 between the six of you and head to New York. That’s because in October Flip Cup Guys will sanction the inaugural World’s Largest Flip Cup Tournament (WLFCT).
Flip Cup Guys, the nation’s largest organizer of flip cup tournaments, is putting this thing on and it is limited to a 64-team field. Think March Madness but with less sprained ankles and more swollen livers. There are no qualifying tournaments to breeze through to make it to the WLFCT. All you need is the $30 per team member entry fees, six players, a larger than normal alcohol tolerance and an expert skill to flip plastic cups. Maybe you suck at flip cup and just want to watch? No sweat. The venue hosting the WLFCT is the M1-5 Bar and Lounge in New York City. Plenty of space for not only the competitors but for spectators to take in the drinking and flipping action. Spectators pay $25 and will enjoy an open beer bar for the length of the tournament. With 65 matches scheduled to complete the tournament, I think I could easily drink more than my fair share of $25 worth of beer.
Tournament kicks off at 1 pm on October 11, 2008 in New York City. (The M1-5 Bar and Lounge is located between Broadway and Church Street in NYC.) Needless to say, you need to be of legal drinking age to participate but of course, you wouldn’t know how to play flip cup unless you were 21, right? Riiiiiiight!

Here is what happens during a Phillies tailgate against the Mets when some alcohol, a Jose Reyes Bobblehead and a 9 iron come into play… (There is an F-bomb thrown in at the end so if your speakers are up and you are at work, you have been warned.)
Napkins while tailgating are crucial unless you have no issue entering the game with BBQ sauce caked underneath your fingernails. You are a true fan and grabbing the 100 count package of napkins at your local supermarket just won’t cut it. No, you need to support your team all the way down to the way you wipe your mouth. JerseyNaps to the rescue.
JerseyNaps are napkins folded to look like a sports jersey of your favorite team. (I am sure your napkin origami is spectacular but leave this one to the experts, okay Akira Yoshizawa?.) They come in packs of eight and many of the most popular NCAA teams are represented from the University of Alabama to the University of Wisconsin. They even have basketball themed napkins for traditional basketball schools like North Carolina. Not all NCAA football schools are available but many of the most popular schools that play in the BCS conferences like Oklahoma, Florida State, LSU, UCLA, Michigan, etc. are on sale.
Check out the news story KQDS-TV, Fox 21, in Duluth, Minnesota did on JerseyNaps.
As of right now JerseyNaps come in college team colors and logos only and no NFL or Major League Baseball themed napkins are available. At a cost of $3.19 per 8-pack ($0.40 per napkin) you may want to keep them hidden from the super messy eater and encourage him to use the roll of paper towels instead.
