Weekend Wrap #14: Link You Later Next Week

news_wrap.jpgLast week’s Weekend Wrap had almost 30 news and blog links included. That’s good and bad news. It’s great news in that there are more and more people blogging about tailgating and more and more “mainstream” news agencies are writing about tailgating. The bad news is that compiling all those links and news stories about tailgating is not only time consuming for me but can take a lot of time to read them all for you. With that in mind, I am happy to announce that I will be expanding the Weekend Wrap to include a mid-week edition starting next week. You’ll still get all the tailgating news and blog posts but you won’t have to wait all week to read them. I’m just thinking out loud but the mid-week wrap up will probably be posted on Wednesdays. Feel free to leave a comment here with suggestion on what we should call it. If I decide to use your suggested title, I’ll give you full credit in the inaugural post next week. Now, on to the news of this week in tailgating.
