You know I am sucker for hot cheerleaders. Add to that hot cheerleaders with the most incredible abs on the planet. With that said, I give you Aliecia Morgan Bores, cheerleader for Ohio University. Football season may be over but the eye candy never ceases to amaze. This week’s mid-week links after the photo.

We told you about The Bacon Explosion last week. A quick search on YouTube produced a number of videos on the subject.

Mid-Week Eye Candy Wrapper #34: Joanna Krupa Edition

Posted by Dave On February - 5 - 2009

Last week we took a break from the normal T&A photos we bring you this time of the week to bring you the Snack Food Stadium. But now that Super Bowl has come and gone we’re back to the same old stuff. This week’s eye candy is Victoria’s Secret model Joanna Krupa. I think that about sums it up. On with the links…

Weekend Wrap #49: One For The Thumb Edition

Posted by Dave On February - 1 - 2009

news_wrap.jpgI’ll admit it. I watched Super Bowl XLIII on TV like the majority of you all. I also caught some of the pre-game festivities on NBC today which also included the cameras capturing what the NFL labeled “Tailgate 2009”. As the cameras panned in and out of the band Journey, complete with replacement lead singer, belting out “Don’t Stop Believing”, I noticed that what was going in no way resembled a tailgate. (NFLJuice.com has a screen shot of this pathetic “tailgate”.)

It looked like a beer garden, complete with beers and food at exorbitant prices I am sure, and a band playing on stage. No grills. No pop-up tents. No one was sitting on a pick-up truck tailgate. Yet the NFL still has the balls to call that “Tailgate 2009”? I know I fought this fight last year but come on. Showing a concert in the middle of picnic tables is not tailgating in my opinion. And to try and promote that as tailgating is deplorable to those that actually tailgate.

The only “tailgating” going on in Tampa today was at Super Gate II, which thanks to the NFL, was three miles away from Raymond James Stadium. Don’t get me wrong, I love Jay and Karen DiEugenio who are the ones who primarily organized this thing, but tailgating three miles away from an event is not really tailgating in my book either. Call me a traditionalist but unless you have a grill and are preparing your own food in the same parking lot as the game or concert, it is not “tailgating”. Go ahead and find a new word to describe those other forms of having fun before the game but please do not taint the term tailgating by using it incorrectly. Call it Pre-Partying or something, just not tailgating. Okay, enough venting, how about some links….

Heaven Rolled on a Grill: The Bacon Explosion

Posted by Dave On January - 30 - 2009

I love bacon. We’ve told you about bacon flavored dental floss, bacon iPhone case, bacon flavored mayonnaise, bacon flavored mints, a Bacon Bra and even a bacon tuxedo. So it is well established we here at TailgatingIdeas.com like us some bacon. Nothing, and I mean nothing, prepared me for when I saw The Bacon Explosion!

Upon finding this beauty thanks to Jimmy Traina over at Sports Illustrated Hot Clicks, my heart skipped a beat. I am not sure if it was due to falling in love upon laying eyes on this little treasure or if it was my arteries slamming shut just by reading about it. All I can say if you are bad ass enough to try this out, here is what you will need.

2 pounds thick cut bacon
2 pounds Italian sausage
1 jar of your favorite barbeque sauce
1 jar of your favorite barbeque rub

That’s it. Now for the detailed instruction on how to create and properly prepare the Bacon Explosion you’ll need to head over to The BBQ Addicts. I was so impressed I immediately added them to my RSS reader and I am following them on Twitter after discovering this little gem. (Feel free to stalk me via Twitter as well.)

I am really interested to see if anyone else gives this a try and how it turns out. If anyone can pull it off and prepare a Bacon Explosion while tailgating, send me a few photos and I will feature you here on TailgatingIdeas.com. If I were a betting man, my money is on the guys from Freedom Grill to be the first ones to try this out.
