So… There Are 15 Commonalities to Buckeye Tailgating

So, there are 15 commonalities I discovered regarding Buckeye Tailgating. As many of you know, I’m not all that into sports. I actually had to Google this morning to discover how many points a touchdown is worth (I thought it was 7, it is actually 6). So I have been mostly removed this quarter from all things football, which is really hard to do especially living almost next door to Ohio State Football Stadium “The Shoe”. Normally on home football game days I go shopping to get some personal store time. However today was the last Buckeye home game for the season so I decode decided to go exploring to see what football culture (especially tailgating) is all about. After about 3 hours, I found 15 things that were common sights in nearly every tailgate site I visited. In no particular order, just the order they appeared on my camera:

1) Cornhole Game Boards
