Weekend Wrap-Up #91: Sexy Super Bowl Commercials Edition

Posted by Dave On February - 1 - 2010

The Super Bowl is a week away and that means just a few things. 1) Thanks to the NFL, no one will be tailgating before the Super Bowl at land Shark Stadium next Sunday. 2) If you go to a friend’s house, you’re likely to run into some annoying people at a Super Bowl Party. 3) No matter how good or bad the game turns out to be, Madison Avenue will roll out it best commercials on Super Bowl Sunday. So in honor of that, here is a YouTube video where you can select any of the top nine sexiest Super Bowl ads over the last few years. Each video you click from inside the video will open up the video on YouTube. Once you are all done watching that one (or all nine you freaking perv) come back and check out this weeks hot links of news going on in the world of tailgating and other stuff you’ll find interesting.

Weekend Wrap-Up #90: Table Head Butt Edition

Posted by Dave On January - 24 - 2010

Despite getting back home on Friday I am still recovering from three days out at the Sports Licencing & Tailgate Show. You think tailgaters can party in a parking lot? Try putting them all in Las Vegas at one time. Your liver and your ability to stay up late will be tested severely. So in honor of that, here is a video that will probably make you laugh at the kind of jackassedness tailgating provokes. (Be Careful when viewing: This video contains strong language that is NSFW and could be offensive to some.)

The Sports Licensing & Tailgate Show is just a few days away from opening on the floor of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Many of the top retailers and manufacturers will be there displaying new products along with new companies introducing the world to the latest tailgating inventions. The show and expo will run from January 20-22 and TailgatingIdeas.com will be on site.

I will be one of the panelist speaking on the Wednesday luncheon forum discussing tailgating trends and how manufacturers and retailers can better understand what the tailgating community wants. I will be attending the expo all three days taking photos, talking to the exhibitors, uploading videos to YouTube and blogging on the days’ events right here on TailgatingIdeas.com. I just hope the WiFi or internet capabilities in my hotel room allow me to keep that promise.

Another great way to keep up on the happenings of the show is to follow me on Twitter. I’ll be tweeting all through the show along with twitpics of the latest and coolest gear. So if you can’t wait for that evening’s show wrap up, Twitter is the way to go.

Have a great week everyone and we’ll see you in Vegas.


Mid-Week Eye Candy Wrapper #77: ‘Bama Babes Edition

Posted by Dave On January - 8 - 2010

Tonight marked the official conclusion of the 2009 college football season. Alabama won the BCS Championship Game (I refuse to call it the national championship until they get a college football playoff system in place.) and now everyone can start looking forward to spring football. So why not honor the Crimson Tide with a double shot of southern hotties paying homage to the Bear? Sounds good to me. Links follow the eye candy.

$25 Gift Card Giveaway From Coleman

Posted by Dave On December - 5 - 2009

You know the name Coleman is synonymous with camping gear but did you know they make some great stuff for tailgating as well? On November 25th they started a promotion in that they are giving away a $25 gift card every day for 50 days. Just glancing at the calendar, 50 days leads all the way to January 14, 2010 and each day is another chance to win. These $25 gift cards from Coleman are good towards the purchase of anything found on Coleman.com. Here is what you have to do to be eligible to win one.

1. Follow Coleman on Twitter. (@ColemanCampfire)
2. Tweet the answer to this question, “What would you buy this holiday season from Coleman.com and why?” Make sure you put @ColemanCampfire in your Tweet.

Entries are limited to one per person/Twitter account per day (Note: The Twitter contest is open to US residents only). The official rules are found HERE. They will announce each day’s winner on Twitter so with each new day is another chance to win.

Coleman has also been generous enough to offer a $25 gift card to the readers of TailgatingIdeas.com. You don’t have to follow us on Twitter (although it would make you a lot cooler if you did) to win. All you need to do is leave a comment below answering the same question as before but with a small twist. All we want to know is “What would you buy this holiday season from Coleman.com and how will you use it while tailgating?”

Make sure when leaving your comment you include a valid email address. (Not to worry, no one else will be able to see it and we promise we will not spam you.) That way when you win we can notify you and have Coleman mail you your gift card directly. Deadline to leave a comment is the same as the Coleman deadline, January 14, 2010. I will use Random.org to randomly select the lucky commenter to win the $25 gift card from Coleman. We’ve used random.org’s number generator before and it is truly the most random and fair way to select a winner.

So there you have it. Good luck!
