  • You might be a Tailgater if… you have ever tailgated outside a wedding, funeral, little league game, your best friend’s vasectomy or the nudie bar.
  • You might be a Tailgater if… instead of handing out cigars in the waiting room before your son’s birth, you smoked a shoulder in the hospital parking lot.
  • You might be a Tailgater if… you know the name, birthdays and food preferences of the people you park next to but have said three words in a year to your real next door neighbor.
